I'm pretty sure that if you bought it from RSW you have V4, which also does ABS, and the ECU.

At the end of the messing about & getting nowhere I took it to an excellent independent garage. £120 later I had in my hands 2 connecting blocks with most of the connections showing signs of going green, & a car that has been perfect ever since. It is a different car, running as it should be.

EAS wiring goes through a connector in the LH footwell behind the kick panel. There's another one on the RH side which has cabling for the OBD socket amongst others which also goes green and hairy.

Maybe this was why I could not get a decent connection to the laptop?

Anyway I now have a 2002 Westminster on LPG running great. In fact I am so impressed with this car [& I have had a few great older cars over the years], that I have thought of selling the 17 plate Volvo & just running the RR. It is my preferred drive to be honest.

By chance as i am stuck at home I bought a copy of Classic Car Weekly, & there is a double page spread on the P38, it gets a good write up.

My boss once queried why, if I am getting the train to London, the car park ticket always has the registration number for my car on it and not the works van. I pointed out that I'm not allowed to do any private mileage in the works van (and it's GPS tracked) so if I want to do some shopping on my way home from the station, I'll use my own car. The fact that I would rather drive it over a 15 plate Renault Kangoo any day has nothing to do with it.....

Ok - I think the primary reason is operator impatience... after watching an RSW vid it was suggested that you let the car run with a door open so that the EAS pump could spend all its time filling the tank...I let the pump run for 10 mins, it then cut itself off, I closed the door and it immediately climbed to standard height. Possibly the compressor needs a helping hand in future and so I'll rebuild the pump anyway at some point. Back to the air con again now !!
