are there other things that are working that shouldn't be? Could be the ignition switch or fusebox is wired incorrectly. Rover basic wire colors haven't changed much over the years, green=ignition switched and should cover things like heaters, indicators, gauges (senders are switches I guess) wipers, etc. White=ignition unswitched, and should cover coil 12v, starting circuit, and power to all the green items. purple and brown are always live 12v switched and unswitched respectively. hope that helps.
