I've had a T-reg Rover 75 for eighteen faultless months, if you don't count
one replacement headlight bulb. About a month ago, I had a little coming
together at a roundabout when some bugger in a Punto decided to change lanes
at a roundabout at the last second and stand on the anchors. No prizes for
guessing who came off worse (light damage to NSF wing and bonnet), but a
couple of things have gone wrong since getting the car back from the
1: ABS warning light: The day after getting the car back, the ABS warning
light came on. Friends suggested Direct Line's bodyshop might've disturbed
something, or there may have been gunk on a sensor. A couple of days later
the light went out again......
2: Speedometer: Tonight I went to do the Big Shop at Asda, and suddenly the
speedo died - and that ABS warning light came on again.
My questions are:
1: Is there really likely to have been anything damaged during repairs?
2: Are these jobs something I can do meself, and if so, how? I helped the
next door neighbour change the speedo cable on his Seat Toledo, which was
hell on earth. I read somewhere that later Rovers use some kind of
electrical sender for the speedo rather than the usual mechanical cable...
Any help greatly appreciated!
Sounds like an ABS sensor on one of the front wheel hubs has failed,
Re: Rover 75 gremlins
this will bring on the warning lamp. If I remember correctly (it has
been a couple of years since I left Rover) the speedometer also picks up
its signal from here too, I am sure if I am incorrect someone will let
me know!!! :-)
