Re: X part

I need to order a £55 hose, so the 10% discount would be useful.

I will let you all know how I get on!

Re: Air in diesel filter

Does your car have a priming bulb on the fuel line somewhere near the filter? I have had to change that part on a couple of Rovers with the L-series diesel engine recently because they had perished with age and were allowing air into the fuel line while the engine was not running. Exactly the same s...

Re: problem with the key fob/ecu??? rover 218 sld

More questions: What year was your car manufactured? This will help to tell us if your car has the Lucas 5AS immobiliser system, or the earlier infra-red operated immobiliser. (Another clue for the infra-red version is that your interior lamp will have a black 'lump' on it, which is where the receiv...

Re: Engine wiring

Thanks for the feedback :) So if you have no spark (have you tested this at the 'king lead' straight out of the top of the coil, or used a spark plug at the end of one of the plug leads?), you have tried another coil and you are confident that the crank sensor and its circuit are ok, this is startin...

Re: 220 Coupe - attempted theft/ hot-wiring damage

I am fairly sure that the purple wires are only there to operate the barrel illumination, but there are four of them because the circuit is effectively 'looped' in with the interior lamp circuit. At least one of the purple and brown wires should have 12v on it if you connect a multimeter between it ...

Re: Engine wiring

OK, try Paul at Technozen Electronics: https://www.technozen-electronics.co.uk/

Alternatively, if you are thinking of going for a remap for more power, a remapping specialist can probably disable the immobiliser permanently at the same time.

Re: Engine wiring

I think you might still have an immobiliser-related issue. I have just tried an experiment on my wife's Rover 114: I let the immobiliser set itself (30 seconds after the engine has been switched off) and then tried to start the car. As soon as I turned the ignition on, the fuel pump primed. Obviousl...

Good to see another SD3 owner joining us, there has been an increase in interest in SD3s over the last couple of years and we have a few forum users with them.

Hope to see you at Milton Keynes!

Re: 220 Coupe - attempted theft/ hot-wiring damage

Just to throw a curveball in here, I found a lock and switch in the garage from a 1991 Rover 214 and it has a third variation on the wiring! Both purple wires go in to separate places on the 5-way connector. As there isn't much on the TV tonight, I will experiment with the multimeter and find out wh...

Re: 220 Coupe - attempted theft/ hot-wiring damage

Ok, I had a look at the wiring on my car this morning, which is a late 1994 build 220. It does not have an illuminated lock barrel (although I would very much like it to have one :cool ), I guess it was one of the things Rover deleted to make up for the cost of the 1994 safety and security improveme...

Re: Lost the only key to my glove box, help please.

I think it is very unlikely that all keys will be the same, as Rover used to offer the option of a 'number specific' replacement lock at around 6 times the cost of a random one! However, if you buy the new barrel and key from Rimmer Bros, you may be lucky enough to use the key from the new one to 'j...
