Can you check to see the transmission oil. See the quality of the oil, if there is antifreeze/water in it. It is possible that the antifreeze has entered the transmission and caused the transmission failure.
This is likely to be a cause of the radiator. The transmission oil cooler lines pass through the radiator and sometimes fail, causing antifreeze to pass into the transmission oil cooler pipes and then into the transmission, causing faults.
If this is the case, then you will have to replace the radiator. Repair or replace the transmission.
Hope this helps

Mgzs horn not working checked fuses


Own an MG Rover built after August 2003? Is one of the following not working:
Horn? Drivers electric window? Central Locking? Fog lights? Intermittent wipers?
It is very likely going to be one or several of the Pektron relays in the SCU unit that have gone. The relays are readily available for about £5 each on the web. It can all be fixed in under a day with some soldering tools, sockets, patience and perseverance.
Such a shame one small component, not even made by Rover, have just a detrimental effect on electrical reliability.
Here we fix a 2004 MG ZR but the Pektron relay are also used in the MG ZS, Rover 25 45 and MGF, so the general instructions are also applicable to them. Just the location of the SCU unit will vary.
On the MG ZR with a/c most garages will say the a/c has to be degassed etc (more cost) but here we leave the a/c connected. The SCU unit can just about be wiggled out from behind the a/c evaporator(radiator) unit with it still connected if some of the pipes clamps are loosened.

Zs mg rover fan heater risistor not working just not getting no electric feed to it and the fuse is ok.


A very common fault this one, that is easily fixed. On older cars the heater fan speeds one and two often fail, due to the resistors burning out. This applies to most of the MG Rover cars of the 90's and 2000's so Rover 200, 25, 45, 400, MG ZR, ZS, MGF and MGTF.
Buy three bigger resistors of value 0.68 ohm and wattage 10 watts, from eBay or an electronics store.
Most of the video here is an MG ZR, apart from the MG TF at the start but it is similar for all models. The MG TF took marginally longer due to the slightly more hidden location of the resistor pack. You need to remove a short vent pipe as well as the glovebox cover on that car.

Losing antifreeze, but I see no leakage on the


If you are loosing radiator water/antifreeze and you see 'white' smoke out of your exhaust then it is likely that you are seeing steam: this usually indicates that you have a blown cylinder head gasket or have a cracked ylinder head: both situation will cause overheating of your engine. You can also check this situation by waiting until the engine is COLD, opening the radiator cap, refill with clean radiator fluid/water, restart the engine and see if the water as seen in the radiator is violently bubbling. Another condition before even starting the car again is if you see oil/white-brown staining in the radiator fluid caused by cracked cylinder head or gaskets letting engine oil in the radiator circuit. In any case, it is a critical sitation and you should get it checked and fixed immediately.
Hope it helps and please let me know if I have assessed the correct situation.
