I did not drive it for a couple weeks, and, of course, dead battery. The charger is sending error signals so I am thinking the Rover ate the battery (6 months old, still tasty).

So, I go to jump it, and the message screen flashed a bunch of words that really look German to me. How do I say WTF in German? Or even better, how do I teach this english vehicle ENGLISH again?

I wouldnt worry too much about it, my Rover goes German on me if the battery is really low. Once you get a new battery it should return to English.

Same thing happened to me when the battery was low. I had SRS and ABS fault on the screen, sometimes accompanied by a message in german. A properly charged battery will fix that :thumb:

Thanks, looks like I can get a warranty replacement tomorrow.

Of all the wierd things this thing has done over the last 8 years, this is the only bad language IT has used, normally it is me using the bad words.

They do seem to have a tendency to revert to Deutsche Sprache when something goes wrong. :mrgreen:
A few weeks ago the engine stalled when switching to petrol, my first reaction was to try and give it a rolling start (had been driving the manual for a while and just switched back to the auto), which didn't work but did give a gearbox error (no gearselection, only D-N-R), in German. Shut off the engine, started it again and all was fine. In the worst case, the BECM could forget it's language setting and need reprogramming.

Greetz,

Filip

Funny,

Well it speaks english, as least for now. No it does not makes sense, but it is a P38 so I have learned to expect things to not makes sense.

And it has also taught me more creative ways to use my bad words as well.
