The inner bumper mounted brake light does not stay lit with the brakes applied and the turn signals activated. This could present a safety issue by possibly confusing drivers about the brakes being applied increasing risk of an accident.
Recall repairs on your MINI vehicle must be performed by a MINI dealership. MINI will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in May, 2017. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local MINI dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
The brake lights mounted on the inner bumper may not stay lit with the turn signals active. Dealers will reprogram the vehicle to correct the brake lighting free of charge to resolve the concern.
