My Engine Check light is on

  • 2002 MINI COOPER S
  • 80,000 MILES

My Engine Check light is on. It first came on in sep 12 time & the garage reset the light as they could find no fault. It came n again in feb 13 - again the garage reset it as they could find no fault! It has just come on again (3 ads ago!) I took it to the garage & they said t could be the catalytic converter - but my husband tells me that I don't have one f those because of the model - double exhaust by-passes it! Any ideas? The car seems to be running ok at the moment, but worried about running it if there's something wrong.

Actually there is one other thing - which clearly may not be connected at all - the stereo display keeps going weird & either blank or unreadable. Only happened for the first time yesterday!

The garage says my only option is to take it to a specialist mini garage.
