Help - what does this symbol mean ?

Could some kind person tell me what this code means ?



I have just had the front brake pads changed at my local garage (not Mini)

The car was bringing up the service light for the brakes and it was telling me that there were 370 miles left in the pads.

The garage has obviously re-set that but not when I put my key in it says this:



It doesn't need a service so what is it ?

thanks

Well, that's a diagram of the rear of a Mini and the brake symbol, so it's saying that your rear brake pads (and maybe discs too) need to be replaced in about 1100 miles.

1100 miles to go is an 'iffy' stage. At several thousand miles to go, the car is guessing how long, based on typical data it is programmed with. At a few hundred miles to go, it is pretty accurate as the wear sensor has been triggered. I'm not sure if at 1100 miles to go the wear sensor has been triggered, so I'm not sure if it is a reliable warning. I would wait until it gets to 500 miles before believing it.

I swapped the front brakes on my SD for S brakes and the service indicator is now having nightmares - it got as low as 1600 miles but is now counting upwards past 2000 miles!

Perhaps youve done a lot of reversing recently?

Actually this is quite logical and shows the CBS system is 'thinking' correctly.

It expected me to trip the wear sensor some time ago (since the system didn't know that I had swapped the brakes at 5,000 miles or so) and because that didn't happen, it is extrapolating from how long I've already driven - so the longer I go before tripping the wear sensor, the longer it will predict until I need to replace the pads.

x + y = z , I think......

Yeah man you right,its a logical CPS system introduced by BMW for Mini.Its easy to understand but by the professional in car field but not understanding well by a local person.Nice to talk about it.If you want to know more about the cars and their specs so have a look on BMW VIN Decoder.It helps you a lot.
