Rover coupe tailgate dash light?

#1 Post by MGZRreplica » Mon Apr 22, 2019 1:17 pm

Hi
I’ve got 1998 218vvc coupe

When ever I open boot and the ignition on
There is no light illuminates on the dashboard.
Yet my rover 218sld turbo when I open
The boot, a light displays on the dashboard

Also in the coupe I’ve swooped internal
boot lamp and fitting and the light doesn’t
Illuminate when boot open?

Any ideas? thanks for your time

Sounds like the latch mech is unplugged or the tailgate loom is damaged.
My Rovers to date:
1994 Rover 220GSI in Tahiti blue (On the road)
2002 MG ZR 105 in Solar red (On loan)
1995 214i (On SORN)

Hi
Thanks for your quick replies.
It was the wiring loom. 4 cores had
snapped out the 5. Just jointed them in
the boot and in the tailgate.
Everything lights up dash and boot light.
Thanks again
