Default Next Issue.. Hatch warning light - 30th March 2018, 12:33 PM

My Hatch warning light began to flash while driving last night. I stopped and checked the doors , hood and Hatch, (even the gas door). They were closed / reclosed with no obstructions.
I have had the light come on before but only for a short time.
I am guessing the swich is failing.
Does anyone here have info on changing it? I have not yet investigated but will soon.
Any information from the collective is much apreciated!!
03 R50 Hatch warning light stays on.
Thanks IA, G.

I totally forgot to send you this link providing technical diagrams and repair manuals when you first started working on your MINI. The details of wiring diagrams for the hatch should be shown. Did you manage to sort out the other issues?

@zf44 , Thank you. Yes we (son and I) have been slowly and succesfully been fixing all of the niggles.
It has been fun and a great learning experience for both of us.
Aside from that the little car is just plain fun to drive. I have always had pickup trucks and just about giggle everytime the mini scoots through a curve with no body roll of drama of any kind.
So far we have ..
Replaced and rewired the headlights.($150)
Repaired the key by soldering a new unlock button to the circuit board and replacing the key housing. (parts from ebay $5)
Replaced and bled the heater core and flushed the coolant system.($50)
Replaced the muffler hanging bracket and rubber mounts (required drilling through the trunk deck). ($25+-)
Put together a mini specific tool roll (@$50) that lives in the car
All in all it has been afordable to work on and priceless for the time son and i spend on it.
We are noticing a gravely noise under acceleration when it is cold. as the weather warms we will investigate further. CV jpints maybe.
The Lad is dying to remove the front clip. (service mode) so we may try that next. Not to repair, just to do it. Yes that is us.
Thank you for your response

You have become an expert with MINIs now. Really nice to see the young man heavily involved.
