Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It would be nice to know what year your Mini is. However, the lights stay on to allow you to exit the vehicle. They will shut off automatically after 15 seconds or less.


It is an 05, I see now. Check out what I said, and just call a Dealer's service department. Just ask them. I am not familiar with the 05 iteration as much as I am the newer ones. Is it an S or Base?
