Brake Fuses or brake micro switch on pedal you can also try to see if you have a short in the tow plug if you have one as this is most likely place to have issues

Your brake lights are not coming on and the vehicle is stuck in park it sounds like the brake light sw is failed or unpluged its usually located above the brake pedal on the pedal bracket it turns on the brake lights and unlocks the shifter when depressed.

Had the same problem with my 03 Disco. Went through the usual, checking the fuses, etc. I went ahead and replaced my break light switch on the brake pedal. $15.00 fix, or I thought so; still had the problem! Took it in for repairs and found out it was fuses after all... To get the parking lock to disengage you need to pull of the housing, which is tough and then press in the locking pin at the base of the shift lever to shift out of park. you can do it with the engine running and it will drive just fine until you put it into park again. Check your brake lights if there is a problem. Could be a sign of the brake switch failure. In my case the lights were out, but a cheap trailer rental did the damage. The short in the trailer blew some fuses and it was a problem that cost me $60.00 at the repair shop....

You can energise the interlock solenoid, by you give a positive (+12V) lead to the RED and a negative (ground) to the black line at the transmission selector's connector.
If it works you should check the positive signal at the red.
It should be there if the ignition is on, brake pedal depressed, and the transfer box is in some gear, and the fuse 1 isn't blown.
At the black cable should be a ground signal if the selector in 'P' position.
If you give me an e-mail address I'll send the wiring.
The ABS problem, you have better to check followings.
- All the wheels bearings' play.
- are the ABS sensors at the deepst position? Knock some to that head (not strong) and they shouldn't move deeper.

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.

I have not seen these yet but a DII or Freelander there should be a push tab on the back side of the light in the bumper. I suggest crawling underneath and looking at the underside where they mount and see if there is a push tab on one side of the light that you would push inward (toward the light) to release that side of the light. If not, look for a screw or nut. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Brake problem
sounds like the brake switch is faulty if you lower the plastic trim panel under the dash and then look up under you will see the switch on the brake pedal lever there will be two switches there one for the cruise control ( easy to spot this has rubber hoses on it) and one with wires going to it replace this one and it should cure both probs
