    The plug, the lead and the cap;).
    Which is why I said not much really. How old are the leads and caps?

    The plugs are quite new, maybe 2000 miles, leads a bit more. No cap because it's more modern then that

    I've had a loose plug before it sounded like a jackhammer

    Filled up with diesel, no leaks, drove 150 miles, no vacuum in the tank.
    Really hoping this is the end of the saga of the buggered fuel system.
    Wonder what the next will be!

    I've managed not to put petrol in Red Rover (the diesel one) so far. I'm hypervigilant every time I fill up now I've got Brown Rover (petrol) too. I'm hoping if I ever do make a mistake it's petrol in Red, not diesel in Brown - the 200TDI will burn petrol, not sure the Rover V8 would appreciate diesel though...

    Otto let us down yesterday, so no Yorkshire trip in him. Started OK, a bit temperamental, needing a few blips but then settling OK. 2 miles to the petrol station, 3/4 tank of fresh unleaded, jump back in, crank but no fire, just a slight occasional cough.
    Pushed him clear of the pumps, checked everything seemed connected, etc, nothing obvious.
    Tried again, cooler with bonnet open and 5+ minutes standing. Fired, rev to about 500 then dead.
    Tried disconnecting the MAF - fired, revved to 1500, then died. So I am guessing my MAF clean actually had the contrary effect and buggered it up somewhat.
    So I hiked the 2 miles home and came back in the little diesel Fusion with a tow rope.
    Got him home and dumped outside (unpleasant and unhappy journey on both sides!) and took the Fusion to the parents through the fog.
    This morning, stone cold, fired, needed blipping to get him to stay running, especially under first load. Then he drove OK for the 2 minutes to get him off the road and up the drive so we can work on him.
    Nanocom is promised for Christmas, so hopefully that will confirm / confound the initial diagnosis and allow us to get him running again.

    G'day folks. So after the best part of 6 months trying to get these dash lights work in illuminating and they're still not working. So I'll try and cover one last time what I have done. All wires checked. Earth/ground points checked and cleaned where necessary. Plugs/connectors all checked. Connectors in the RHS kick panel have been removed and soldered as the connectors had a lot of corrosion on and in them. Dash binnacle removed and checked all bulbs, they were good. Checked power was getting to the bulbs both at the bulb and applying power to the pins that operate the lights and still not working. Tried a known used instrument cluster and that also didn't illuminate. When I turn on the ignition all of the warning lights etc. come on, the radio and HVAC dim as they should. The switches above the SAT NAV when pressed all of the lights work, just not the ones that illuminate them, so you can see what you're pressing in the dark. The centre console lights don't work around the gear selector and on the window panel. The cigarette lighter works as it should but the green ring doesn't illuminate.
    So every single one of these bulbs and connectors have all been checked and had power applied to them to see the bulbs are good. I didn't want to rely on a visual check only. The fuse panel in the engine bay has been replaced as have all fuses. The BECM was sent off and any faults on it were cleared or fixed. I did find the green light for the clock had blown but the dash was all working correctly for the previous 2 years. So that's not the issue either.
    So, where does this leave me? I am going to try and get the car through its MOT if I can. I know it needs two front tyres. The rears are new.
    It's got the TC and ABS error for the front left abs sensor but that was replaced in January 2020. There shouldn't be anything else that would stop it from passing but I don't know.
    The only option then is to sell the car because I just can't physically work on it anymore, I don't have a garage or workshop to put it into work on it, and, regardless, I can't afford to pay someone to do the work for me and the car needs a lot of work to get it to where I want it to be (I have quite a list of jobs to be done and prices of things needing to be replaced. The jobs needing to be done stop it from driving or make it unsafe to drive.
    I've thought about keeping it for sentimental reasons but it would just sit there and it would get no further forward at all. So this means in the meantime through to the end of January we'll still be driving the car as normal.
    We'll see what happens.
    Again I say a big thank you to everyone that has offered advice over this past 6 months.

    Craig
