If the light continues to illuminate, stop the car as soon as safety permits and seek qualified assistance urgently. It's still irrelevant, UK law takes precedence over any general statement in any published works of intellectual property by any media type. These additional factors will affect the point at which the service should be carried out. DO NOT plug to open.

Before starting the starts. Ensure the starter motor is not operated for more than 15 seconds and release the accelerator as soon as the engine starts. Insert the key and turn the starter switch to the second unconsciousness and may even be fatal. Wait until the glow plug warning light extinguishes. Turn the key to the third position to operate the starter NOTE: Continued use of the motor; DO NOT press the accelerator pedal during starter will not only discharge the battery, but may damage the starting and release the key as soon as the engine is starter motor and the catalytic running.
Catalytic converters before turning the starter switch back to the second position. Before starting the attempting to restart; the engine will not start after stalling by engine, you should be aware of turning the starter switch from the second position. In temperate climates, DO NOT operate the starter switch for longer than 5 seconds; if the engine fails to start, switch off and wait for 10 seconds before re-using the starter.
This will ensure that the engine and turbo-charger bearings are properly lubricated before being run at speed. When starting times will increase. As the starter motor may need to operate manual transmission vehicles in freezing condition or when the for longer, it is essential that all unnecessary electrical battery is in a low state of charge, equipment is switched off while cranking. In the interest of fuel economy, it is advisable to drive the car soon after starting. Remember that harsh acceleration, or labouring the engine before the normal operational temperature has been reached, can damage the engine.
Towing - switching off After periods of strenuous towing particularly at high altitude or in hot weather , it is good practice to allow the engine to idle for a few minutes before switching off. This will enable the engine cooling system to continue operating for a while in order to reduce underbonnet heat. During the first miles 1, km , it is essential that you drive with consideration for the running-in process and heed the following advice: After the running-in distance has been completed, engine speeds can be gradually increased.
Environmental issues are increasingly influencing our lives, and the motor car is sometimes seen as a major source of air pollution. In a great many respects, however, criticism of the car and its manufacturer is misplaced, for few industries have done more to reduce pollution than the motor industry.
Rover is no exception. Your new Rover 75 has been designed with the latest technology in order to minimise the environmental impact of exhaust emissions. The majority of poisonous emissions are produced immediately following a cold start and in the period while the engine is warming up. Because the car warms up much faster while it is being driven, it is less harmful to the environment to drive away immediately after starting rather than to allow the engine to idle.
Driving style The way in which you drive your car has a significant bearing on environment pollution, as well as affecting the amount of fuel you use: Change up to a higher gear as soon as possible, provided it does NOT cause the engine to labour.
A smooth driving style not only reduces fuel consumption, but can reduce the emission of poisonous gases by two thirds or more. The impact on the environment of starting the engine again will be less than the effect of allowing the engine to idle for 45 seconds or more. Exhaust temperatures can be extremely high, do not park on ground where combustible materials such as dry grass or leaves could come into contact with the exhaust system - in dry weather a fire could result. The exhaust system incorporates a catalytic converter, which converts poisonous exhaust emissions from the engine into environmentally less harmful gases.
Catalytic converters are easily damaged through improper use, particularly if the wrong fuel is used, so be sure to take notice of the following precautions to minimise the chance of accidental damage.
The automatic transmission features a five speed gearbox with NOTE: A light on the selector three manually selectable modes Normal economy , Sport display and a number or letter on the trip recorder display, and Snow mode.
To release the catch, press and hold the trigger mounted in the handle of the selector lever arrowed in illustration while moving the lever. The following gear changes will be inhibited unless the Do not press the trigger trigger is used: Select ONLY when the car is stationary and with the handbrake applied.
This position also provides moderate engine braking for descending slopes. This position also provides more pronounced engine braking for descending steep slopes. With practice, gear changes can be made to occur at a wide range of road speeds depending on accelerator position.
Up to a certain speed, this will cause an immediate downshift into the lowest appropriate gear, followed by rapid acceleration. Once the pedal is relaxed, normal gear change speeds will resume dependent upon road speed and accelerator pedal position. The automatic gearbox has three driver-selectable operating modes, Normal economy , Sport and Snow. When the starter switch is turned on, the transmission automatically selects the Normal economy mode.
Normal economy mode Normal mode is suitable for all day to day driving and optimises fuel consumption and exhaust emissions. To return to Normal mode after selecting either of the other modes, push the switch towards the front of the car.
Select sport mode appears in the trip recorder display. With Sport mode when increased engine acceleration is required, or when selected, the gearbox is more responsive to accelerator pedal negotiating long inclines, but movement - downshifts occur earlier and upshifts are delayed note that driving in sport mode to make optimum use of the engine's power while will increase fuel consumption.
Snow mode Press down on the centre of the switch to select a snowflake symbol appears in the trip recorder display. Select Snow mode when moving from rest on loose or slippery surfaces the car will move off in second gear and subsequently upshift at lower speeds, thereby reducing the possibility of wheel spin.
Automatically selected different gear change modes, listed below, designed to suit a modes cannot be selected by the driver and will not operate if variety of driving conditions.
A suitable gear change pattern is selected to counter momentum loss, caused by the more frequent gear changing which can occur when climbing hills, or when towing a trailer or caravan. This gear change pattern is also selected at high altitudes to combat low engine torque. On most automatic vehicles, this results in the highest gear being selected, thereby reducing engine braking to a minimum.
On Rover 75 however, the hill descent mode provides engine braking by causing the transmission to automatically change to a lower gear on steep downhill gradients, provided the following criteria occur: This reduces the amount and frequency of gear changes, providing a smoother ride. This will help to improve overall fuel economy and driveability, and reduce emissions.
At a certain temperature, the transmission will select a gear change pattern designed to aid the cooling process, whilst enabling the gearbox to continue performing normally in high temperatures.
The drive gear will automatically reselect when the brake is released. The gear positions are indicated on the gear lever knob. Synchromesh is provided on all gears including reverse. In the neutral position, the gear lever is spring loaded to rest naturally in the centre of the gate between 3rd and 4th gears. This will wear out the clutch. Always use the handbrake. The fuel flap is locked only is linked to the central door locking system.
With the car when the car is locked using the handset locking the car with the unlocked, push on the right-hand side of the flap to open. Fuel filler cap Unscrew the filler cap anti-clockwise and allow any pressure inside the tank to escape, before removing the cap. Stow the filler cap where shown in the illustration.
For example, in most European countries 95 RON unleaded fuel is readily available, but in other parts of the world fuel supplies may be limited to leaded or lower octane fuels only. Before a new car is delivered to the first owner, the engine is tuned to suit the fuel supplies commonly available in the market in which the car is to be purchased. However, if the car is later exported to a different country, or is used to travel between different territories, you should be aware that the available fuel supplies may not be compatible with the engine specification.
If in doubt, consult a Rover dealer for advice. Diesel engines The quality of diesel fuel can vary in different countries and Diesel fuel specification: Good only clean, good quality fuel should be used. It is important quality diesel fuel to EN specification. In Europe, all supplies should be within this limit, but in other parts of the world, you should check with your supplier.
DO NOT attempt to recommended fuel! Serious damage to the catalytic fill the tank beyond this point, or spillage could result due to converter will occur if the wrong expansion of the fuel. Petrol engines The filler tube is designed to accept a narrow filler nozzle, of Care point: Diesel engines The diesel fuel filling system on garage forecourts, is designed to fill at a maximum of 45 litres 10 gallons per minute.
Use of commercial vehicle diesel pumps with a higher fill rate, may result in premature pump cut-off and fuel spillage. Empty fuel tank Never allow the car to run out of fuel - the resultant misfire could destroy the catalytic converter. In the event of the fuel tank running dry: Start the engine carefully after refuelling.
If the engine runs unevenly, switch off and contact your Rover dealer before attempting to restart the engine. The fuel system will prime automatically and the engine can be started. The fuel cut-off switch is a safety device which, in the event of a collision or sudden impact, automatically cuts off the fuel supply to the engine. When the switch operates, the interior lights illuminate until the system is reset by pressing the rubber top of the cut-off switch arrowed in illustration.
The fuel cut-off switch is located behind the glovebox and can be reached from underneath by removing the four cross-head screws securing the access cover. The switch must be reset before the engine can be started. Side, tail and instrument panel lights Turn the lighting switch to the first position.
If a tail light bulb is defective, the corresponding brake light will illuminate as a Headlights substitute tail light until the With the starter switch turned to the second position, turn the defective bulb is replaced. Note lighting switch to the second position.
The headlights will then remain illuminated for approximately 30 seconds. If necessary, the courtesy delay can be cancelled at any time during the 30 seconds by turning the starter switch on and then off again. Rear fog guard lights Operating tip: Both the rear and Press the switch 1 to switch on and off; the warning light in front fog lights are switched off automatically when the main the instrument panel will illuminate when the fog lights are lighting switch or the starter on.
The lights will operate when the starter switch is in the switch are turned off, and will second position, and when: The lights operate only with the starter switch in the second position and the headlights or sidelights switched on. Press to operate. All the direction indicators and direction indicator warning lights will flash together. Use only in an emergency to warn other road users when your car is causing an obstruction or is in a hazardous situation.
Remember to switch off before driving away. The indicators will cancel indicator lever half way up or down to indicate a lane change. The corresponding GREEN warning light in the instrument panel will flash in time with the direction indicators. Headlight main and dipped beam Pull the lever fully towards the steering wheel to change Operating tip: Main beam headlight beams the BLUE warning light in the instrument selection is cancelled automatically whenever the panel illuminates when the headlights are on main beam.
Headlight flash To briefly flash the main beams on and off, pull the lever part way towards the steering wheel and then release. With the starter switch turned off, move the direction indicator lever fully DOWN to switch on the left hand parking lights. Move the direction indicator lever fully UP to illuminate the right hand parking lights.
To cancel the parking lights, return the direction indicator lever to the off position. Rotate the control up to increase and down to decrease NOTE: Instrument and switch instrument illumination. The instrument dimmer also illumination will automatically dim when the sidelights are controls the illumination of switches, audio system, message switched on. The angle of the dipped beams is affected by the distribution of passenger and luggage weight within the car.
It is important that the headlights are adjusted to ensure that the point at which they meet the road surface provides adequate illumination ahead of the vehicle, without dazzling other road users. Using the following load conditions as a guide, adjust the headlights by rotating the adjuster wheel see inset: These loading definitions assume that all loads will be within the limits of the maximum permissible axle and vehicle weights.
The wipers and washers will only operate when the starter Operating tip: If the road speed switch is in the first or second position. Fast wipe to Pull the lever down and release if the lever is held down, the normal wipe, normal wipe to wipers will operate at high speed until the lever is released.
This facility can be manually overridden by changing Intermittent wipe the wipe setting. Push the lever up to the first position. Variable delay - intermittent wipe Rotate the switch to vary the delay between wipes. The delay will also vary according to road speed - any increase in speed will decrease the delay. Auto-park If the starter switch is turned off while the wipers are Auto-park can be selected operating, the wipers will continue operating until the parked or deselected by a Rover dealer.
The sensor is able to detect varying amounts of dirt and water on the outside of the windscreen. With the wiper control set to Intermittent Wipe, the variable delay will be adjusted automatically according to the information supplied by the rain sensor. If the sensor detects constant rain, the wipers will operate continuously at normal speed wipe. After a short delay, the wipers will commence operating in conjunction with the washers, both functions continuing until the lever is released.
Note that the wipers continue operating for a further three The number of wipes can wipes after the lever is released. If the washers fail to deliver the screen wash solution dirt or ice may have blocked the jets , release the lever immediately.
This will prevent the wipers from operating, and the consequent risk of visibility being impaired by dirt smearing across the unwashed windscreen. Cruise control enables the driver to maintain a constant road Operating tip: This is particularly mode on automatic gearbox vehicles is not recommended useful for motorway cruising, or for any journey where a when cruise control is selected.
The following precautions must be observed when using cruise control: Press the master switch the switch indicator light and the warning light in the instrument panel illuminate whenever cruise control is operating. Accelerate until the desired cruising speed is reached. The set speed held in the memory. Cruise control will now maintain that speed cruise control memory, will be cancelled when either the cruise without the need to use the accelerator pedal.
When the accelerator is released, road speed will return to the selected cruising speed. Release the switch as soon as the desired speed has been reached. Each operation of the switch will increase the speed by approximately 1 mph 1. For added safety, the hydraulic braking system operates NOTE: DO NOT rest your foot on through dual circuits. If one circuit should fail, the other will the brake pedal while driving; this may overheat the brakes, reduce continue to function, but increased brake pedal travel, greater their efficiency and cause pedal pressure, and longer stopping distances will be excessive wear.
In the event of a brake failure where only one circuit is Operating tip: Driving through operational, the car should be brought to a halt as soon as water or even very heavy rain may adversely affect braking traffic conditions safely allow.
DO NOT continue driving - efficiency.
Dry the braking seek qualified assistance. Without servo assistance greater brake pedal effort is necessary to safely control the car, resulting in longer stopping distances. Always be aware of the following: If the engine should stop for any reason while driving, bring NEVER move the car the car to a halt as quickly as traffic conditions safely allow, without the engine running because brake servo and DO NOT pump the brake pedal lest the braking system assistance may not be lose any remaining servo-assistance available.
The brakes will still function, but more pedal Electronic brake force distribution pressure will be required to Your car is equipped with Electronic Brake force Distribution operate them. EBD , which, in order to maintain braking efficiency, automatically proportions the distribution of braking forces between front and rear axles, under all load conditions.
For example; under light loads EBD applies less effort to the rear brakes in order to maintain vehicle stability; however if the car is heavily laden or towing, then more effort will be applied to the rear brakes. The EBD system incorporates a monitoring system, which checks that all electrical components are in working order when the starter switch is turned on and also at frequent intervals while the car is being driven. The EBD monitoring system is linked to the brake system warning light on the instrument panel.
If this light illuminates while driving, or. If this occurs, stop the car as soon as safety permits and seek qualified assistance immediately. DO NOT drive the car with the brake system warning light illuminated. Brake pads Brake pads require a period of bedding in. For the first miles km , you should avoid situations where heavy braking is required.
Remember that regular servicing is vital to ensure that all the brake components are examined for wear at the correct intervals, and changed when required to ensure long term safety and optimum performance. Brake pad wear indicator The road wheels are fitted with brake pad wear sensors. The warning will remain active until the worn brake pad is replaced. Brake system warning light The warning light on the instrument panel should If the brake warning light illuminate for about 3 seconds as a bulb check illuminates while driving, bring the car to a halt as soon as whenever the starter switch is turned to the second position, traffic conditions and safety and also illuminate whenever the handbrake is applied permit and seek qualified provided the starter is switched to the second position.
If the warning light illuminates while driving, or fails to extinguish when the handbrake is fully released, a fault with the braking system is indicated. This may be caused by a leak in the hydraulic system or low fluid level in the reservoir or failure of the electronic brake force distribution system. DO NOT continue driving - stop the car as soon as safety permits and seek qualified assistance. The handbrake operates on the rear wheels only.
To apply the handbrake, pull the lever up. To release, pull the lever up slightly, depress the button arrowed in illustration and fully lower the lever. The warning light on the instrument panel will extinguish when the handbrake is fully released.
When parking on a steep slope, do not rely on the handbrake alone to hold the car. On manual gearbox models, leave the car parked with the gearbox in a low forward gear when facing uphill and in reverse gear when facing downhill. However, contact between the tyres and should the braking force exceed the available adhesion the road surface.
This will be recognisable by a rapid pulsation felt through the brake pedal. The pedal at any time; this will interrupt operation of the ABS anti-lock braking system will constantly monitor the and may increase braking rotational speed of the wheels and vary braking pressure to distance. This will ensure that the wheels do not lock and that the car is brought to a halt in the shortest possible distance for the prevailing road surface conditions.
No matter how hard you brake, you should be able to NOTE: ABS cannot be greater than for non-ABS braking, even though improved reliably compensate for driver error or inexperience.
This is because the natural action ABS Warning light of locked wheels on soft surfaces The ABS incorporates a monitoring system, which is to build up a wedge of surface checks that all the electrical components are in material in front which assists the car to stop. The warning light on the instrument panel is an important part of this system.
The light should illuminate for approximately 2 seconds when the starter switch is turned to the second position and then extinguish. If the warning light fails to extinguish or illuminates while NOTE: The normal non-ABS driving, a fault has been detected by the self-monitoring braking system remains fully operational and is not affected by system and full ABS control may not be available.
If this partial or full loss of the ABS. However, braking distances may increase. The purpose of electronic traction control is to aid traction, NOTE: The engine torque tarmac. If spin is detected on one wheel, the system automatically brakes that wheel, transferring torque to the opposite, non-spinning, wheel. If both wheels are spinning, the system will reduce engine speed in order to regulate wheel rotation until traction is regained.
Manual override Operating tip: When driving with snow chains fitted, it is recommended that traction control be disabled. Traction control is entirely automatic in operation. However, the system can be manually overridden by pressing the traction control disable switch see illustration.
The system will then remain disabled until the switch is pressed a second time, or until the starter switch is turned off. The light also illuminates as a bulb check for approximately 3 seconds when the starter switch is turned on and illuminates continuously whenever traction control is manually disabled.
If there is a fault with the system, the warning light will fail to extinguish and remain illuminated even when the car is stationary. The parking aid is not infallible. It is for 5 feet 1. The sensors may 14in 35cm not be able to detect certain types of obstruction, eg. The parking aid system is designed to help the driver reverse into parking places. Four ultrasonic sensors, situated in the rear bumper, scan an Care point: Keep the sensors free area behind the car searching for obstructions.

In the case of cars side of the car remains unchanged for over three seconds, equipped with factory fitted towing equipment, the parking the parking aid will switch off. The safety, reliability and performance of your car will depend partly on how well it is maintained. Oil services and inspections The service interval display in the instrument panel shows the next service type Oil Service or Inspection and the distance remaining before the next service is due.
This display appears for 4 seconds every time the starter switch is initially turned to the second position. The distance display commences at 15, miles and NOTE: Because the service progressively reduces in increments of 25 miles as the car is interval display reduces in increments of 25 miles, it is driven, until zero is reached.
The relevant service should be possible to undertake a short carried out after 12 months or as soon as the distance display journey without triggering any shows zero whichever is the sooner. After the completion of movement from the display. These additional factors will affect the point at which the service should be carried out.
For example, a car subjected predominantly to short journey NOTE: If a service is not carried motoring, will consume more fuel, resulting in a more rapid out or the dealer fails to reset the display , the distance indicator, deterioration of the engine oil.
In this case, the service having reached zero, will then distance indicator will reduce more rapidly, reaching zero start to accumulate, but with after the car has travelled as few as 11, or 12, miles. This section of the book also provides a facility for the dealer to record brake fluid and coolant changes, as well as the fitting of replacement airbag modules and seat belt pre-tensioners.
Ensure your dealer signs and stamps the book after each oil service and inspection. Brake fluid replacement The brake fluid requires replacement every two years, irrespective of the distance the car has travelled. Normally, the brake fluid change indicator on the instrument panel will commence illuminating for four seconds every time the starter switch is initially turned to the second position as soon as each two year period has elapsed.
However, if an impending oil service or inspection falls due within a period of up to days prior to the brake fluid change becoming due, then the indicator will illuminate earlier. This will enable the dealer to combine the brake fluid change with the oil service or inspection, thereby avoiding the need for an additional dealer visit. Note that brake fluid replacement will be an additional cost. Coolant replacement The engine coolant anti-freeze and water solution needs to be replaced every four years regardless of the distance the car has travelled.
Your Rover dealer will replace the coolant at the scheduled oil service or inspection nearest to the conclusion of each four year period, to avoid the need for an additional dealer visit. Note that coolant replacement will be an additional cost. You should be aware that unauthorised replacement, modification or tampering with this equipment by an owner or motor vehicle repairer could be unlawful and subject to legal penalties.
In addition, engine settings must not be tampered with. These have been established to ensure that your car complies with stringent exhaust emission regulations.
Incorrect engine settings may adversely affect exhaust emissions, engine performance and fuel consumption, as well as causing high temperatures, which could result in damage to the catalytic converter and the engine. The engine oil level previously, a number of simple checks must be carried out should be checked more frequently if the car is driven for more frequently.
You can carry out these checks yourself and prolonged periods at high advice is given on the pages that follow. Contact a Rover dealer for advice. Prolonged contact gloves made from an impervious material.
