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

My 2000 land rover discovery 2 suddenly stopped working in all gears, I put it in drive and it won't move, won't move in any gear, idles like its in park, code p0884 came up, can't find what it means

code p 0884 refers to transmission control module (TCM)--power input signal intermittent malfunction==== causes ---wiring ---poor connections ---TCM
While that code appears what you have indicates that the torque converter clutch servo/ solenoid is not operational hence no drive action
The TCM could be affect that or you may have 2 problems

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.

1990 Range Rover will not go into gear

Check the fluid level while idling in park. Low fluid pressure due to low fluid can cause this.

Car will not move in any gear

your question is very brief making it hard to understand what you need to know , is your car manual or atomatic gearbox ?

if manual gear box then you may have one of many things , your clutch is worn out ,or maybe just the clutch slave cylinder , if 4wd is engaged does if move with front tire's if so rear tail shaft or diff broken .

if automatic , then you may have bands broken or blown gear box in both cases .

if 4wd drive try driving in 4wd using front wheel to drive vehicle , if it moves then rear diff or tail shaft is problem , if not gearbox is most likely dammaged

hope this helps you !

2002 Land Rover Discovery rolls when it is in PARK.

It is known as the Parking Pawl assembly, and requires removal of the gearbox from the vehicle along with the transfer box. You then remove the extension housing (requiring new bolts) and then replace the park lock gear and o'ring.

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.

Not moving in any gear

Have you checked the High-Low ratio lever.  Half-way between High and Low is a Neutral, so no drive to any axle even if a gear in the main box is selected.
Try locking the differential.  If this gives you drive, then it might be a final drive (half-shaft) failure.

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,
