    Yes this is a P38 and RAVE has been my bible through all of this. Re the test lamp, I forgot to say I did that as well. There are likely other steps I took that I have forgotten now. I've only been working to fix this problem for the last 6 months on & off ..

    Is the dash illumination a fail? In a well lit garage how many testers would notice? Usually they're looking for warning lights.

    I have been told by the bloke who was helping me with the soldering, he also does MOTs, that yes it would fail. As for warning lights hahahahaha remove the ABS fuse and all of a sudden there isn't a warning light. His words. hahaha

    Thanks for delving into it for me.

    It's a 2001 4.0.

    Yep. Also the lights along the dash for everything except ride height don't work and the same with the gear lever surround. These all stopped working at the exact same time.

    I'd invest in a tailored cover for it, tie it down well. It's not a substitute for proper indoor storage but it'll keep the worst of the weather away.

    Surprisingly few warning / tell tale lights are mandatory for the MOT:
    • headlamp main beam
    • direction indicators
    • hazard warning lamps
    • rear fog lamps
    If your audible tell tale still works for indicators, you may be fine with a sympathetic tester.

    Cheaper ones do, but better ones have a super soft inner layer that doesn't seem to. We've used a decent cover on an old Alfa (1975) for over a year after it became immobile on the drive and it's been fine :)

    You are saying the warning lights do not work? Does the clock light come on and the back light for the main light switch?
