  1. Was the fluid change with the correct fluid? I know nothing about Citroen autos (absolutely nothing), but from Rover-land, I know using incorrect fluid in the 827 autos is pretty much terminal. Lots of fluids claim to be compatible with Honda Z1, but actually aren't.
  2. Obviously, the way you're going about it is the right way (ie change the switch first). Without knowing how the oil pump is driven in this car, I suppose there's a secondary option which is that the oil pressure is good most of the time. I had a water pump that failed to pump all the time because the drive key on the back of the power steering pump (which is what actually powered the water pump) started slipping on the shaft. Not all the time, just some of the time, until it was all the time.
  3. Incredible efforts - go, enjoy the living shite out of it over the summer
  4. Aye, I bought a cheap endoscope when trying to diagnose hot start issues on the Rover. Last used when trying to adjust the handbrake adjusters on the SLK, looking through the wheel bolt holes. Mega useful.
  5. Near me. A lot stickers on view
  6. So good to see! Great thread this
  7. Welcome, Stockport man. I'm over Cheadle-way, also with a Rover doing daily duties.
  8. The 'trip computer' is quite French in design, tbh - it's actually a vehicle condition monitor, so it tells you if bulbs are out. The giant screen version in earlier MK1s also had MPG info, trip info etc. It never, ever worked and the LCD screen was crap.
  9. http://rave.stringsandints.com/Engine_Management_Systems.pdf Anything here?
  10. The version of the RAVE CD I used to have also had a selection of articles covering Rover electronics, including MEMS, PGM-Fi and maybe, if you're lucky, MFi stuff?
  11. No advice, but that sounds fucking terrfying
  12. I'd be interested in seeing if any of those packs magically work again once you've resolved the fusebox. I've had good success with just contact cleaner to fix fobs in the past. The switchpacks are less responsive, but do come up OK after a resolder (not always though).
