Customer Question

Hello, recently bought a 2007 Mini Cooper S convertible. Apparently the PDC was working when car was checked over by my mechanic but has since been there a switch that turns it on/off, a volume control or a dashboard warning that I'm too dumb to see?

if you have PDC on the front and rear of the car then the leftmost toggle switch will enable the PDC on & off

if you only have it on the back of the car then there's no switch and its enabled by selecting reverse gear

so if its not working check that your reversing lights are working as the 1st step as if not then the reverse light switch on the gearbox may need replacing
