2002 Land Rover Discovery Series II - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

In Td5 circles this problem is known as 'the 3 amigos' !
One of the causes is a faulty abs sensor, the abs sensors let the ecu know what 'speed' each wheel is doing and thus control the abs, hd & tc.
Check that the wires to each have not been damaged and that the plugs are firmly in as apart from 'off road' damage it is possible that something happened when the brakes were getting worked on.
Another cause can be the wheel bearings....
If there is nothing obvious then get it plugged in as said in previous answer and this will tell you which wheel is giving the problem.
Hope this helps,

Check the torque converter for proper installation. If bolts are missing from the torque converter, your DII won't move.

if you are careful the job is not too hard but you may need to remove the steering wheel with a gear puller to get at the screws which hold the switch in place.

The rattle will be loose screws/bolts in the linkages and maybe the regulator needs to be changed.
Remove the door trim and inspect everything. Tighten all bolts you can reach. Spray all of the points that can rattle with white lithium grease Test the window lifts before replacing the trim.

Sounds like bad actuators. I would test the actuators by applying voltage to them while unplugged from the truck.

It always goes under the nut as it is intended to stop the nut unscrewing. Anyone who has got it against the tow ball has got it wrong.

Check your water pump,could be bad seals causing the coolant not to recirculate while driving and causing it to over heat,also could be a bad thermostat.Here's a link on replacing your water pump,is your fluid low in your over flow container,if so,look under to see if it's at the water pump.

Power windows operate by a motor that lifts or lowers the glass panel. Once the motor jumps the track, it's time to replace the entire motor assembly.....you'll have to remove the interior door panels, usually screws and pop in type barbs glued to the door panels. It's not hard, but it does take some patience....

I have a 2003 Disco and it is doing the same thing!! it would go off if I placed the truck in park and turn off the engine. It now stays on and the transmission is slow to start, kind of sluggish but runs fine. Any further findings on a correction?

There is a fuse in the under hood fuse box that controls the ignition system. I believe it is a 30 AMP fuse.

If you are talking about turn signal bulb....open hood, look just inside for screw, remove and pull complete assembly out.

run the fault codes and look for a faulty torque converter clutch solenoid /servo and a problem TCM unit. A service if not done in the last 60.000 miles would also help.

The brake light switch is on top of brake pedal arm. Check your bulbs, and connections to the rear lights (unplug harnesses and clean the connectors as well as bulb(s) etc... )

Also, it (shouldn't) be the brake light switch if you can shift out of park. Good luck.

Sounds like a broken head gasket, or water pump seal. If water is in exhaust it is most likely the water pump.

I assume the 'manual' you refer to is part of the Green M + S lights and not a manual transmission. If your vehicle is an auto transmission, your problem is possibly related to the XYZ switch on the left of the transmission housing. You cannot start the vehicle if the ECU thinks the vehicle is not in park or neutral, and the contacts in the XYZ switch provide the signal for the ECU to know this. Try putting the selection lever into P and then through the gears a couple of times. If the starter is turning then the xyz switch is not the prime starting problem. You are not getting fuel to the engine. This could be be a failed fuel pump, blocked fuel filter or the fuel pump inertia cut out on the engine firewall. This should give you some things to check before asking for the tow truck. Good luck.

Your problem is that now, the gasket glue is the only thing holding it . Use a SOFT hammer, rubber preferably, and tap the pan where it meets the engine. Once loosened, GENTLY pry it away from the engine , moving down and around the outside, using a wide flat screwdriver. It will drain fluid as soon as it starts to give, be ready for it.Leave two bolts, positioned on two adjacent corners in, loosely, so the entire pan doesn't fall away, spilling fluid everywhere. Good luck !

It could either be a switch or a fuse, The cheaper fix of course is the fuse,next would be the switch, the most expensive would be the motor
