Question about 2001 Land Rover Discovery Series II
I have a Land Rover Discovery and it is stuck in park. No brake lights when I press the brakes. I have replaced the brake light switch and replaced a blown fuse. Still no luck. Any thoughts on what else it may be?
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....

Check both sides of the switch for voltage, is it a two wire switch firstly? if so then check the hot side if voltage is present then push the brake pedal down and check the other side of the switch if it is a 2 wire switch. If no voltage then suspect a broken wire.
