SOURCE: 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,

SOURCE: stuck in park, Land Rover Discovery

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....

SOURCE: abs light on in land rover

I have spent way too much money trying to get the 3 amigos to go out...ABS light, TC light and downhill descent. I have decided to try and ID the wires that go to those particular dash lights and cut them. I am tired of this ****. Landrover told me three different things that may cause this issue and told me to start with the least expensive one first! Go to hell, Landrover. I will NEVER buy another Landrover product. Which wires can I cut?

SOURCE: problem with electronic hand brake

Just had this same issue with my 57 plate Discovery SE - great guy from the AA took the small plate off that sits immediately to the rear of the hanbrake button in the central console - he then hooked a wire around the cable you see in there and gave it a mighty tug. The result is that my brake is now disengaged (rather than stuck-on as before) and LR will need to cure the source of the problem under warranty. Car is automatic so can use "park" until full repair.

Break pedal stuck 97 land rover


A number of possibilities exist. Most likely related to the recent work. Could need further bleeding of the brake lines, additional fluid, even a stuck caliper or other dysfunction caused by the failure of the old master cylinder. In any event, start by contacting the mechanic. Any reputable shop will correct it either on site or have it towed in at their expense. Obviously for safety sake the vehicle should not be driven until corrected. Good luck!

I cant releas my hand brack


The electronic park brake can jam, it can only be released with the dealer computer. The aftermarket Hawkeye tool by Bearmach has this functionality. It is well worth the price of admission if you plan on servicing the car yourself.

I have a land rover it starts but it wont move!!!!!


hi centa, sounds to me like the brake release on the gear selector, when you put your foot on the brake it releases the gear selector peg so you move the gear selector, if you can remove the top cover have a look down and see if you can see the lock peg moving, if it is, it sounds to be more like an internal problem. hope it is something simple.
