Hi,
My rear for lights are not working even after replacing the switch. please can anybody provide a simple fix? The ECU is very difficult to get to in order to change the rear fog light relay, since my 2005 Rover 2005 1.4 GLi has air con fitted behind the passenger glove box. Another possibility is that the front fog lights are not a legal requirement to pass the MOT for a 2005 car, so I could wire the back fog lights live feed to the engine fuse box (fuse 6) after removing the front fog lights live feed wire. Can anybody please advise on the best solution you may have undertaken.
I believe many people have the same issue on a Rover 25 with the rear fog lights not working, so any feedback will help many people on this matter.

Kind Regards

Chris

Lift the boot lid, you will find a rubber flexi Joint. The tail lights Wires break at this point. It is a simple task to fix with connectors and a bit of extra wire.. The problem is quite common.

Hi,
On my Rover 25 1.4 GLI 2005 the wiring that goes via the rubber flex joints on the top of the back boot hatch are for the back windscreen wiper, back window heater and top of back boot stop lamp. I had a previous Rover 25 2003 and my back windscreen wiper was not working and it was due to a wire break within the the back boot rubber flex joint.
