ELECTRIC WINDOWS/SUNROOF BEEPING? Car Fix. Program Drivers Door Switches. Rover 800 820 825 827
This is how to stop your windows and/or sunroof from beeping on your Rover
800. I needed to do the ones on my Rover 800 (Zircon Silver Coupe No.1)
after reconnecting the battery. This will usually solve the beeping
(although it normally takes a few more goes!).
If the windows do still beep, then you may have to remove the door panels
and use some spray grease on the cables/mechanicals! Sometimes the drivers
switch pack may need resoldering, as they do suffer from dry solder joints
on occassion. (as you have two switches on each window in every car, then
if one does work and one does not, then it is worth resoldering the one
that does not fully function).
Also some owners do seem to suggest problems occuring as a result of bad
connections in the main fuse box too! So if the above stuff fails it will
do you no harm to have that resoldered too!

Rover The Long Goodbye
Rover: The Long Goodbye 20 March 2007 BBC Four
Documentary which traces the rise and fall of a great British brand.
In the days when Britain's car industry was the envy of the world, Rover
epitomised everything to which the driver of taste aspired, but in 2005 it
reached the end of the road. The film explores how Rover cars went from
defining their eras to becoming victims of their times, telling the story
behind the key models to the controversial joint ventures with Japanese and
Indian manufacturers in later years.
