  • Jake are you still looking for MG3 roof bars?
    My colleague has a set available but he reminded me that they are only for show as MG did not put in the fixings for them.
    So he said they would look good but would not be practical for the purpose you have in mind!
    Let me know if you're interested and I'll let you have his email address.

    Regards
    Kev.

    Hi Paul,
    I don't think I can help you with your diagnosis for your MG3, my wife has one (a 2016 model) and so far the cruise control has been ok, BUT
    I did have your problem with my MG6 so I thought I'd mention what Longbridge  found when I let them keep the car for a week.
    The fault wasn't wheel sensors but amazingly it was a faulty ribbon cable in the steering wheel which operates the cruise control.
    There must have been a faulty batch as the one they replaced also failed quite soon afterwards, this time they sent a technician to my house (about 150 mile drive)
    to replace it. This time all was well with no further problems!
    Kevin.

  • I had problems with my MG6 cruise control also (but have now swapped the car for an MG ZS). Somewhere back in my earlier posts on this topic you may find that the solution was to replace the ribbon cable in the steering wheel which controls the CC.
    The problem was investigated by MG at Longbridge , they kept my car until the fault was found on a "data logger". The problem was then they replaced the faulty ribbon cable with another from the same batch, so it all had to be done again!
    Hope this helps?

    Kevin.

  • MG ZS 2017. excite 1.5 ex demo 2000 miles when purchased
    Could it be a earthing related problem? There was a recal for my MG6 which required new earthing bolts to be fitted, no problems since!

  • KevandAnna replied to the topic stop/start in MG6 and MG3
    stop/start
    If you check out Brione's suggested post, then you'll see many contributions about stop/start including from me!
    It does appear to be down to the level of battery charge. We have the same problem with my wife's "3" and it was booked in for investigation at our new local dealer on Dec 11.
    But I cancelled the appointment as a really good charging session over last weekend has restored the stop/start.
    Suggest you put yours on charge for several hours and see if it works.

    Regarding help from Longbridge........there doesn't appear to be anyone left (well that I knew) who can help with technical queries...I think they've tried to push all that support out
    to the dealers.

  • KevandAnna created a new forum post in MG6 and MG3
    For any of you who like me, live on or near the south coast, the Richmond Group have opened 2 new MG dealerships on November 1st!
    One in Southampton and the other in Portsmouth.
    This has to be an improvement on going to the Sales Centre in Longbridge, especially as Simon Bennett is no longer there.

  • MG6 MK1 TSE Service indicator reset
    Everything shouldn't get reset to zero but I can't promise!
    When I bought my 6 it was on 1st Sept. 2015 but then I discovered that the next service had been set in the factory to July 2016, probably because
    that's when its build had been completed, whereas it should have been set to a year in advance from the purchase date.
    So I did manage to change the next service date from July to Sept. thereby avoiding a loss of 2 months and getting messages that the service was overdue.

    My suggestion (as most of the guys I knew at Longbridge are no longer there) would be to call John Woods Motor Care and ask for their advice, they have most likely serviced dozens of 6s and should be able to help.
