That place is radical for a golf course...like $20 and tell Matt Barrett (head pro) you want to do some wheeling, he owns the town basically. I can set you up if you want to give it a try?

I'm jealous. Live free or die.

Do you know the part# or code for Champion spark plugs for the 90?
Thanks!

Most of the big chain auto parts places carry NGK.

A man who plays golf and drives a D-90? Wow! They still make that breed?

We all do when you hit it like me.
Golf should always be capitalized. and Rover.
I am putting in a recommendation for an immediate change.

LOL I knew that would get ya going But I didn't relize you were the wicked wich of the east? Maybe Chris can add a filter to the forum that blocks out any time someone posts Roverchick so as not to upset the witch of the east? But I am not sure he can make Rover and Golf always capitalized.











This may make things better or worse for me

Well, no spark from the coil. I changed the cap and rotor with no avail. I sent it in for a look on a tow truck.

Well if there is no spark from the coil then the cap and rotor change won't help. I bet it's just a loose wire on the bottom of the coil, that seems to happen all the time.

So the reply from the Dealer was left on my voicemail.
Needed new distributor cap and rotor = $275
Needed new brake switch = $140

#1 I installed a new distributor cap and rotor arm right before it was towed there. I called and left them a message that there was no spark from the coil and to start there and diagnose only.

#2 I hear a brake switch does not have anything to do with a "no start" on a '95 with a manual transmission.

Somehow, they must come to these conclusions. I hope to get a straight answer and am ready to go steal my car back.

Any advice?

WOW !! 140$ Brake Switch? Hmmm, I think mine was like 35 plus shipping from AB or R North?? Got to love IT when they tell you that you need to replace things you already replaced! When my brake switch went out in my D1 it would not allow the truck to be placed in any gears IIRC. I would go get your Rover..ASAP! They should have @ least tested the Rotor before they told you you needed a new one! Unless it went bad??? Which I doubt!

Yes. Crazy.
I found a few things in past forum about brake switches with the same problem you had, but the '95ers with manual did not seem to have the no start problem. Only the brake lights stayed on from what I could comprehend. I talked to Les at RN today and my mechanic in Orlando. I am pretty frustrated. I think I may give the service manager a chance to call me tomorrow with an explanation, or it's go time. Hell, throwing parts in ther is my job!
Thanks for the advice.MM

In a 95 you don't need the break switch for it to run! It wasn't connected to my EFI wiring in any way and if it was then it would only let you start the engine with your foot on the break! Some dealers are crazy! But in an auto the break switch may be connected to something, I don't know?

I bet a wire came off of the coil, they put it back on then said how can we get money out of this?????? Hmmm, I think he needs a new cap and break switch! Go to the dealer, ask to go out to your Rover with the old cap (tell them you want to return it to whoever you just bought it from). Then start it, if it runns cool, shut her down pop the hood and swap out the new dealer cap with the one in your hand, try to start it again, if it runns go oh here is your cap back please take it off my bill! Then ask for the old break switch back ecause you now are questioning the need for it to be replaced also, as the cap clearly did not need to be replaced. If they give you a hard time semd them my way and I'll fix their wagon!
