Thanks Kevin, as long as I can get an understanding of the issue I can then either fix it myself or take it in if it’s beyond my limited abilities

Hi, I hope you are well. I'm sorry to hear your mini and totally understand how worrying and frustrating this can be. Is this warning now active all the time when the car is turned off?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
it is Kevin
Expert:  Kevin replied 15 days ago.

ok, so the vehicle typ[ically displays this message when the car is turned off and it's not in the park position, so if it's displayed and the selector is in the park position it's very likely that there is an issue with the selector not being completely sure that it's in the park position. I have seen an issue with the selector that leads to selector replacement to cure this issue

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
By selector do mean the whole “gear level”?
Expert:  Kevin replied 15 days ago.

yes its has an electronic potentiometer on the bottom that electronically detects its position and its likely an issue with this
