Scary dashboard symbol
First post, and I've looked around to try and ensure I'm not reposting a much answered issue, but apologies if I have.
I've recently bought a used Cooper S, 07, and am very happy.
However, there is one issue.
When I turn on the car, a red light that I believe is the vehicle electronics warning comes on - (Centre rev counter, looks like a red car raised up on a platform).
I've looked it up and have read that either my car is about to die, it needs checking asap, or it's absolutely fine. It turns off after a few seconds.
It's due a service, which I'm sorting today, but I'm assuming it doesn't have much to do with that. Can anyone shed any light?
To clarify - it's on the counter above the steering wheel. As I start the car, it comes on for a few seconds, a red car raised up on a platform.
Thank you, and again, apologies if I'm rehashing an old issue.
