Mini Fault Code List

Greetings - been a while since I've logged into MCO <>.

Now that my 2002S just turned 50K miles and is no longer under warranty (AND I don't want to wait TWO weeks to service at Ralph Schomp - yes TWO weeks for an oil change - I don't think so...) I decided to take it into a local tuning shop run by a friend for the oil change and such.

Since he doesn't have a Mini Fault code reader, he can't clear it or determine what it means.

Is there a list somewhere that has these codes? I am not sure if his reader also reads it in the same format. I have yet to google any similar code format.

Here is what the printout says:

X431 DIAG Report
Smartbox: 980243309900
Total Codes: 001
ID 1,45,4,55 undefined.

That's it.

Any help is much appreciated!

Thanks for the quick response. What I typed is exactly what the device printed out and in the same layout. Not much of an error code format so I assumed it was because it is not meant for a mini. Not sure what brand/model the device is.

I will take a look at your attached doc's and see If I can piece it together somehow. For all I know, the error code means change your oil

My car sometimes generates erroneous non-MINI fault codes; no lights, just the code. The latest was P0571; another that I can remember was P0575. By the way, I don’t have cruise control. The techs have been un-concerned since it never retains the code.
