Flickering lights etc
1996 Rover 400 1.6 SI

I went over a bump and the ABS light came on and the radio went off briefly before restarting again and the ABS light going out.

Things are now getting worse the above happens and the speedo and rev counter drops, the lights flicker, the clock resets back to 0.00 and then everything comes back on again.

Any ideas please?

hi the abs is fused straight from the main fusebox,so id start looking at the battery connections,the earth lead and the main fuses(usually bolted into fuse box)also the main relay.if all connections ok try the contacts on the back of the iggy lock.otherwise check wireing loomb for damage poss near aux wireing has anyone wired in aftermarket radio or spots
