Hi

I have a mini one auto on 2002, When starting the engine from cold the red light on the temp gage comes on instantly and the fan comes on also when turning the car off within 30 seconds of starting it cold the fan stays on for a while.

Does anyone know what the problem could be?

Thanks

Could possibly be a thermostat or something related. Sounds like it is reading the temperature wrongly. Sounds like a trip to the dealer or a specialist!

I assume that you have checked the coolant? If that is fine then it may very well be the thermostat as mentioned above. 2002 is out of warranty so I would recommend one of our sponsors if any are in your area. They all are very good with the MINI.

Hi there,

Hey as said by M.O.S. the engine temperaturs would be reading wrongly causing it to give signal to the Fan which auto on instantly and according to the temperature even when ur engine is switched off it will keep running for a while. My pure good advise call up the service center and take up an appointment and notify the service center.


Best Regards and Best of Luck :),
