Check this procedure...
1. Check wheel lug nut torque and tighten evenly to specification.
2. Check the brake rotor for trueness and thickness variations. Replace the rotor if it is too thin, warped, or if the thickness varies beyond specification. Some rotors can be machined; consult the manufacturer's specifications and recommendations before using a machined brake rotor.
3. Check the brake caliper or caliper bracket mounting bolt torque and inspect for looseness. Torque the mounting bolts and inspect for wear or any looseness, including worn mounting brackets, bushings and sliding pins.
4. Check the wheel bearing for looseness. If the bearing is loose, adjust if possible, otherwise replace the bearing.

Before Removing the Brake Rotor from the vehicle it should be tested for warpage.

Use a Dial Indicator for checking to see if the rotor is warped. Anything over .003 can be felt as pulsation in the foot pedal as it double when you add the other side of the rotor and then add the opposite rotor. Replace rotor If it reads over .003

ABS LIGHT ON, SHIFT LOCKED, NO BRAKE LIGHT.


If your brake lights don't work Its because you blew the fuse  which Is located In the main fuse panel under steering wheel.  Without break lights your rover will fire up nice but wont shift out of park until you replace the fuse.  If your ABS Is acting up It Is also an easy fix.  Disconnect the ABS from each wheel.  You still got all wheel disc breaks that work great but no ABS.  Your other option is  thousands of $$.  If your breaks are weak check your master cylinder and make sure you got enough fluid and that you are not loosing the fluid.  If you notice you are leaking brake fluid because you have to keep filling it up but cannot find a leak anywhere.  I bet I know where It is.  Check your rear break lines and make sure one of them didn't get caught in your rear springs and pinched ever so slightly when you were doing dounuts In the snow.
Good luck,
