2007 mini - 2nd hand, has 3 error codes - please help
Hi everyone - first time posting here as I'm just beginning to go down the Mini rabbit hole. So far mini2 has been rich resource as I've been researching the cars. Here is where I'm at with my search:
Looking at buying a 2007 Mini Cooper - auto trans, less than 50,000 miles, private seller
Took car to independent auto shop for an inspection, came back with three error codes:
#51 - transmission ECU controlling malfunctions
#71 - seat occupancy (passenger side)
#88 - airbag sensor
I noticed #71/#88 when I test drove the car - with someone in the passenger seat the car still said the passenger airbag was disabled.
Mechanic's knowledge stopped here. Local Mini dealer says it'll be another $142 to get these error codes diagnosed. Is it worth it? I've had little luck with finding error code resources online so figured I'd start here.
Thank you in advance for any/all advice!
