Havent used my car for a fortnight. Just got in it and...


...the boot/bonnet warning light has come on and stayed on. Ive slammed the bonnet and boot shut a few times and it's staying on. Anyone know whats going on??

Many thanks

have you driven it around?

have noticed sometimes that the sensors need to reset and driving round will do that

Thanks for the reply. Will driving around reset the sensors?

I realised what was wrong. The clip that holds the bonnet down (drivers side) wasnt engaging properly so the right side of the bonnet was up very slightly.

I sprayed some wd40 on it and it closed again.

All sorted :)

Mini said over the phone that they wanted £150 just to look at the car - and all it needed was a spray of WD40

"I need to see your car immediately" she said, "it could be something serious".

Croydon that was - what a joke!
