2006 Mini Cooper S. When I changed the time fo daylight savings, my total mileage display went to a trip mileage instead. I want to have the display to always show the total number of miles on the car. How do I get the display to reflect the total miles and stay that way instead of trip miles.
Hi there,. I've owned the car for 4 years and this has never happened before. I started the car this morning, and at first I thought it might just be the fan playing up, as I put the fan speed on full blast and I heard a little "whirring" (like it was starting up) noise, then nothing, but I could feel heat coming through the vents. It's never overheated. My car also has heated seats, and they are now not working either. I haven't tried it again since I got to work, but any advice would be really appreciated.
My 2003 Mini Cooper S has an airbag light that is on all the time. My wife recalls that there was a problem with the light when the car was still under warranty, and that there was a recall. I can find no record of that. Can you help me?

It's my daughters car. She hit a piece of rubber on the high way. It cracked the thermostat housing, and auxiliary water pump housing. I replaced both pieces and filled with anti freeze. Cranked and ran the car. Drove it 20 miles down the hi-way. It ran fine the best I could tell. When I pulled back in the driveway and shut it off, it never started again. It cranks, runs rough a few seconds and dies. When it starts and I remove my foot from the break , it dies immediately.
