Unhappy 2003 disco dash warning B with a line through it

New member here, I looked everywhere for someone with similar issue cant find. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 2003 Disco 72k miles. Wife went to unlock doors, key fob not working, had to open manually with key. She starts car, starts to drive, sees B with line through it on the dash where the miles/trip odometer display. She gets to end of street and notices no turn signals as well. Now car will sometimes stick in a gear, so has to be turned off, then re-started to select gear. Car was fine the day before, any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

Be more specific about the B with the line thru it. As far as I know we have no such warning light.
How old is your battery. If old, I would suggest you go to a local parts store and have them check you battery/alternator to see if you have a low voltage issue below 13.6 volts.
If that is not it, I hope you have a good Rover mechanic, not a dealer if possible.
Let us know what you find.

Do you have your owners manual, if so I would read up on that indicator before you go driving much. my 99 D2 does not show that and you are the first to mention it.

I read the manual front to back when it first happened, nothing listed in the manual. Called 2 dealers, they only suggested bringing it in for $115 diagnostic check. Just went to my friends (small used car dealer) his mech checked battery 13.8 volts. Got fault codes P1412, P1415, and P1173.

The 2 1400 codes are Secondary Air Injection fault codes, the 1173 is a lean code, I believe.
Time to go see a good Rover shop, not the dealer.

thanks for your help Mike. Does anyone know a good independent LR mechanic in the West Chester PA area?

crazy B indicater.

That is just the indicator that shows if the transmission is in park(P) or reverse(R) and so on. It appears that all of the letters are lit up at the same time on yours.

Nice call. I haven't seen that one before...

David, you might be right. I was just thinking about the B and not the other gear positions that would normally show up in that area, so the tranny switch could be the culprit.

Had to take it to the dealer. Turns out their is a short in the fuse box. They said they need to rerplace the IDM? cost with labor $780. (that takes care of the goofy flashing B in the dash warning light, and the loss of signals and power windows) They also said I need a new SAI pump and (2) 02 sensors. $630 for the SAI and $569 respectively. Total cost to repair if I decide to do it $1979. Ugh!

SAI is not difficult to do on your own... replaced mine with one from Ebay for around $100.00 shipped.

O2 sensors are not difficult either... you can get them from Atlantic British I think for around $70 per sensor depending on whether they are front or rear.

Can't help you with the fuse box shorting out, but you may want a second opinion from a good mechanic with rover experience.

beamacvt- thanks much for your response. Maybe I will do the SAI and sensors myself, and let the dealer do the IDM

The IDM should be easy enough to replace also
