Dash light on my Mini

I cant find the owners manual on my mini, and I have a yellow light flashing. It is in the center speedometer, second light from the far right. It is yellow and has an exclamation point on it? DO you guys have any ideas?

Is it an exclamation point with a triangle around it? If so, it could be your DSC light. However, when I switch my DSC off, it stays a constant yellow.

It's the tire pressure sensor light. Should check the pressure of your tires, and if that all good to reset the sensor is easy.

The car must be off, turn the key until all the lights are on. Then look for a button near the handbrake that has the same symbol as tire pressure sensor as the one you see on your dash. Hold the button down until that specific yellow light goes off. Turn the car off again and then start the car. Drive a couple miles and the light should go away.

Cool! I will try this tommorow. Thats what I was thinking it was, as it sort of looked like a tire.
