    ABS / brake lights "trifecta"

    Oh...I actually found calling up a local dealer parts department the best choice for small items. Just bought 20mm chassis blind plugs priced at 45p each...and they had it in stock. Collected personally so no shipping charge.

    I thought that precharge pump actually meant ABS pump?

    They understand that the fault is only apparent when the DSC unit is properly hot?

    You can test your pump with two wires...or post them the spare one, which means you will still be no smarter as to whether yours actually work...I would expect them to have their own test rig...

    If this only happens when very hot than you need either fixing yours or getting a new DSC unit. My understanding was that it happened first when hot and that issue has persisted since then hence the ABS pump troubleshooting suggestion - as the error persisted. If you are getting a new or buying someone else's used (only if cheap) then it has to be coded to your car. When you clear the errors do both appear immediately, even when cold? The thing is that you also have steering wheel sensor issue which would also trip off the ABS lights - if memory serves me...

    Have you tested the ABS pump - either via INPA or directly 12V on the connector? It may well be that the pump has failed, being 20 odd years old - it's on the hydraulic valve block. You can also connect 12V directly and see if you can hear it running. The error has nothing to do with ABS sensors.

    Like for like engine swap

    When you say no combustion you mean no compression? It is strange that three have gone at the same time. I would expect two adjacent cylinders to show no compression if the head gasket between them has blown.

    Winter's coming...

    I have recentlyremoved front seats and inspected the plugs/holes bellow the carpet. Every single one had a healthy onset of rust spreading from the hole. Filed, sanded, brushed the rust, liberally supplied phosphoric acid converter, brushed off the converted oxide, primed with epoxy primer, refitted the plugs and sealed the lot with a brush on seam sealer, liberally applied below and on top of the plug. To finish off I will now spray some paint over. Relatively easy job as you can do one side at the time. Just remove the front seat, pull off the B pillar and then lift the carpet halves and tie them to the other seat/gear stick with some rope so that it stays up. A point to note - from the underside all looked OK - just some light, barely visible surface rust on the plug. It was anything but as all the damage was inside, under the carpet. The picture attached was taken during the process - immediately after the rust converter was applied, still wet. The car has spent last 5 winters as a winter daily on some rather salty roads though. I have just had rocker panels replaced as the old ones were too rusty. The floor panel had a last minute save.

    triggering elec water pump

    If it gets cold you do get gas starvation in the engine (I did not mean to say insufficient supply of the LPG in liquid phase from the tank) - engine shutting down due to lack of LPG in gaseous phase. If I read your response correctly that is. My guess is that you have plumbed it incorrectly. On mine, one pipe is plumbed in at the heater inlet, and the other at the outlet. All good. Good luck with the workaround.

    The pre-charge pump error usually points to the failed DSC module. Had it twice and in both cases (two cars) the DSC had failed. One fixed by a competetent electrician, another destroyed by a butcher so I had to buy a new one off ebay.de. And had it coded to the car.

    triggering elec water pump

    Where exactly is it plumbed into the coolant circuit? Is the water flow vapouriser by any chance directional? What vaporiser is it? And do you only get gas starvation when under full load or at all times? Questions questions...

    Road noise

    Exactly, excessive toe in is the tyre killer. I always ask for the toe in to be set to the smallest possible - borderline within spec. And usimg the SE specs even for Sports suspension. No issues whatsoever.
