Cooper S Gen 1 R53 Mini OBC Menu

The information displays in place of your mileometer, so you DO NOT have to have the MINI OBC/Trip Computer option to see this.

A complete list of functions is below, this example is how to get into the menu number ‘7’.
With the key in the ignition, but in the off position, press and hold down the odometer reset button, while holding the button down, switch the key in the ignition to position 1.
The screen will say ‘Test’ and a number.
Scroll through, (pressing reset button) through to test 19 and wait a moment.
Wait and the message will say “log i-off” then “log i-on” and back to “log i-off” again. When “log i-off” appears, press again. You are now in the system. (Woooo)
You can (if you wish) start the ignition any time from now.
Scroll through to test 7.0 (or whichever from the list below) and wait a moment, after a pause you will enter the test 7.* range of information.
You can scroll through now (7.1,7.2,7.3 etc.) using the reset button.
You can exit each menu by pressing, holding for a few seconds, then releasing the reset button.
To leave the system scroll to 19 and leave it for a few moments.
Switching off the ignition also exits the system.

Your MINI’s computer may give more or less information than stated above.
