Thanks for the previous advice on the 95' LWB - picked her up last weekend. :clap:

When I picked the truck up the Anti-lock and Traction Control warning lights were on. Mechanic did something under the dash, disconnected the battery and all was well. Also got it checked out by a Rover mechanic and when he ran the tests nothing came up as coded. A few days ago, lights came back on. Does anyone know if this is a fuse or does something need to be replaced.

Sounds like the same problem I have had on my '95 LWB.

My TC light has been one since I bought it. My mechanic diagnosed it down to a faulty front righ wheel sensor. The fuse was pulled as the wheel sensor was going to act up since it was bad. This is a $400 part. Without it, the ABS and Traction Control (which is powered by ABS) won't work. At $400 for the part plus labor I can live without ABS. It's no big deal.

Thanks Serg I'll have it checked out. When I started her up this morning the ABS light didn't come on. About 5 minutes before I pulled into work, I felt the ABS kicking in when I steped on the brake ( going about 15 mph)m, then the light came back on again. Since we're on the subject of broken things - does your driver's side front door lock with the rest of them when you use the remote? For some reason my drivers side door won't lock....?

My 93LWB has a sticky driver's side lock problem too.
You can take it apart and see if the mechanism is binding up. That was the case on mine. I think that the door actuator gets weak with age. It's around $250 I think for a new one! Mine works sometimes and other times it doesn't.

Aren't we full of great news. You just got it and we're spending your money faster than you thought.

Thanks Okie - It could be me afterall. I tried locking the driver's side door manually by pushing the lock down before shutting the door. Once I did this I used the keyless remote to relock. This seems to have worked. Not sure if this is a Rover safeguard to prevent someone from locking their keys in the car, or if it's the actuator? Suppose I should check the manual.

The remote should lock and unlock all the doors. Sounds like you have a sticky actuator or some other issue. Try what Okie said, I would open up the door panel and investigate for a bent rod or a bad electrical connection. Should not be too tough to fix.

I broke my guide for the visable part of the lock so be careful when you are reassembling. A little white grease should help if it's sticky from friction.
