MINI Cooper
Diagnosis Without Guesswork: 2002-2006
Cooper, Cooper S

Available March 2, 2009


GOMINIGO has arranged to do a group buy on the MINI Cooper - Diagnosis Without Guesswork: 2002-2006.  This new book is the ideal companion to the acclaimed MINI Cooper Service Manual: 2002-2006 from Bentley Publishers.  The list price of this manual is $59.95 and if I can get 10 or more people to sign up I will offer them to PSMINI Members for $49.95 plus shipping or I will have at the first event after they are available.  This will be a one time purchase. 

MINI Cooper - Diagnosis Without Guesswork is a diagnostic handbook written for the professional technician and the MINI enthusiast. Not intended to be a repair manual, this handbook is your comprehensive source for engine management and on-board system diagnosis.

For the MINI technician with advanced automotive test equipment, the circuit descriptions, pinout charts, wiring schematics, scope traces, and real-world nominal values will prove essential in diagnosing problem cars.

Even if you own only a generic OBD-II scan tool, a DVOM and a set of jumper wires, this book will help provide fast answers and guidance as it steps you through the diagnostic process.

MINI Cooper - Diagnosis Without Guesswork is a response to reader requests for DTC-based diagnostic information.








Technical Highlights

  • Diagnostic tools and techniques
  • Component descriptions and operation
  • Circuit wiring schematics
  • Pinout charts, waveforms, and nominal values
  • Bus system operation and testing
  • OBD II P-code (DTC) lookup

As our minis become older and fall out of mini maintenance, a book such as this becomes very important.  You can put me down for one for sure.  Thanks!

Just wondering - Since this is a very specialized reference book, could the club purchase a copy and have a librarian responsible for getting the information for PAID members or for checking the book out to any PAID member who would need it for trouble shooting .  I know some other clubs maintain a collection of techinical reference material for use by members...

One can't have too many cookbooks and/or car reference books - especially ones with really great photos & diagrams (even if it doesn't quite stretch to the 2008 models).

Dave, please put me down for one of the remaining books - somehow, I also missed this string when it first began.

I have the books in hand and would be willing to meet sometime Saturday or Sunday to deliver them to there new owners.  We can meet around Tacoma for that want them this weekend.
 
Ok First look at this manual and it is really cool it has some great instrument tests and it lists alot of P-codes.  I think this is a great manual.
 
Please email me if you would like to pay with credit card and have it mailed to you.  Remember you do have to pay sales tax.
 
thanks,
 
Dave

This weekend will not work for me.  If you are coming to the breakfast at the Shipwreck in Lacey on Mar 14 we could do it then.  If you need me to do it earlier please let me know and I will see what I can do.

How about the Starbucks across the freeway from the Mini dealership?  Name the time - earlier is better.  There's also a Starbucks on one of those offramps just south of Tacoma Mall.  You name it.  I am also planning on the Shipwreck if this weekend doens't work out.  Thanks for setting this up, Dave.

I'm an early bird, Dave.  Wanna wait to see if any of the other takers want to pick a day?  Otherwise, whatever day would work best for say an 8:00 meeting (I try to sleep in till 6:00 on weekends, so anytime after 7:00).

If it is early Sat then I might be able to make it.  Let me know what you guys decide and I will see if I can make it.  The earlier the better.

For those that want them shipped we can send them out at the book rate for $5.00 and it will take three days to get to you.  Just call us at 360-786-1300 and we can process it over the phone. 
 
I am still going to go to Tacoma Saturday Morning.

How about we make the Saturday morning meet to purchase the books at 830am at the Starbucks at 4756 Pacific Hwy E, Ste 110, Fife?  I can work this in, hopefully it works for everyone else.
