Mini Cooper check engine light

Asked by Jul 03, 2014 at 05:42 PM about the 2007 MINI Cooper S Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2007 Mini Cooper s.  I owned it for about three months when the check engine
light came on and it went into limp mode. The throttle body was replaced. About 14
months later, the same thing happened. Throttle body was replaced again. About six
months later same thing. The technician said the diagnostic tool was identifying the
problem as the trhottle body again. This time, they replaced the TB sensor. Six months
later....same problem, same diagnosis. This time they replaced the gas pedal sensor.
Two weeks later...it happened yet again! This time they are thinking that it must be the
engine's computer.....about $ 2000. Is there any other possible explanation before I
spend that much money on top of what I have already invested?

I don't know the code, but the mechanic said it keeps reading as the throttle body.

Have the computer scanned and post the trouble code(s). Advance and Autozone auto parts stores will do it for free. HTH. -Jim

I am having the same problem. Car runs great, no problems, but I don't want to damage anything I may have overlooked. Somewhere I read about a vacuum leak and a smoke test to identify the location. I am reluctant to try this myself. Spraying carburetor cleaner at the probable spot will cause engine to shut off.

I have had the same problem with my 2006 Mini Cooper. OBD II error code P1617. I am looking to replace the ECU ECM with a used one flashed to my EWS and key by the RPM company in California.
