BMW now says if the 2014-2015 MINI Cooper or MINI Cooper S Hardtop 2-door has been in a service department, the dealers might have mistakenly reprogrammed the transmission control units. The automaker says the transmission control unit might have software problems that can cause a driver to believe the car is in "park" when it's not. The car could roll down the street because the transmission really wasn't in park.
MINI Cooper says the recall will start February 1, 2015. The automaker says the problem can be fixed by reprogramming the transmission control module with the correct software.
