I have a 2001 Disco II with 77,000. My ABS, HDC and TC lights all went on at the same time. Dealer says the ECU SLABS unit is defective and needs to be replaced. I keep seeing so-called recalls on this problem, but when I called Land Rover North America, they said no such recall exist.
To fix the problem, you are looking at replacing the ECU SLABS, speed sensors, hubs, abd ABS sensors.
I will be filing a complaint with BBS Auto Line, If I get anywhere I will post resolution.
#4375 of 5002 potential first time buyer of Land Rover Discovery

I am going to check out a 2002 Land Rover Discovery tomorrow. I mainly drive within town and highway miles. I would appreciate anyone's feedback as to the amount of leg room and second seat space in this vehicle. Thank you!

1 All DIIs came with front seats pre-wired for heat so all you needed to do was buy the switches and faceplate for the center console and you were good to go with heated seats without the expensive heated windshield. That is likely what was done to the vehicle you are looking at.
2 I have a 03 HSE and it came standard with HK Nav. That was supposed to carry over to the 04s.
3 If you do not get an HSE with SLS, you will sag. I did a lot of towing with my previous 96 DI and you cant help but sag. Get the HSE with SLS or you will not be happy since you are used to it now.
4 See 2.

Thanks. How and what did you do to fix the problem??????? How much did it cost and did you bring it too a LR dealer???
Nov 02, 2005 (4:57 pm)
Bob, Or anyone else. I am having some trouble. My 96 with 120K is running pretty rough. It started gradually at first, but now it really feels like it's going to tear itself apart. some times it doesn't do it, but a lot of the time it fels like it's runniong on 7 cylinders instead of 8. But.... If you step on the gas and it downshifts, it will accelerate like normal. It's when the RPM's drop below 2500 it really starts to shake. Has anyone seen this problem before. I already changed the spark plugs and used a bottle of fuel injector cleaner. ANy ideas?

#4380 of 5002 light bulb change
Nov 04, 2005 (3:14 pm)
Front driver side light bulb burnt out on my 04 disco. I'm told this is a standard halogen 7 12 v 55 w bulb. Just a quick sanity check: is this a simple change or is there a trick with these large fishbowl front headlights?
#4381 of 5002 '96 Disco won't shift out of park
Nov 08, 2005 (6:10 am)
The members of this forum have been very helpful in the past. Maybe you can help with this one. My '96 Disco won't shift out of park. The sunroof was leaking slightly and some water dripped into the shift linkage. The shifter was somewhat stiff, but still shifted. Last weekend, it shifted into park and then that was it.
I see that there are two switches on the brake pedal. I have removed and tested the combinition electric/vacuum switch. It seems to be working OK. Switch open/closes and vacuum open/closes, although there is no vacuum on the line coming down from the dash. Vehicle is in park. I see there is another switch on the pedal (Brake lights?) , but I have not removed it yet to test.
Can anyone tell me the interaction between the two switches & the vacuum switch on the pedal with the interlock with the shifter. I am unsure if the shifter has failed in the shifter column (because it was stiff prior) or one of the interlock switches on the pedal has failed.
Any insight would be appreciated.
OK, I checked the forum and see several people have had similar problems, however the fixes are not always posted. My brake lights work, the shifter was clicking when the button was pushed, but now is not (probably from me pulling on it too hard). Still not sure if I have an interlock issue with the pedal swithches, or some type of failure in the shift console. Again, any help would be appreciated.
#4382 of 5002 Lord Lucas and my Transfer Case Leak?
Nov 08, 2005 (6:34 am)
Good day All!
I recently noticed a fluid leak and had it diagnosed as the transfer case (bad seal). Now understand this was at Jiffy Lube, so any and all opinions are welcome. Looked to me (from under the car at Jiffy Lube) that it is a bad gasket. I'm no Mr. Goodwrench but it that something I could change? Looked to be right there with all bolts exposed? The Transfer case was indeed low (took 8 pumps to fill?) and I am still driving it. I have a local import repair shop that does work on LR's. i just want to know a little about what I'm in for before calling.
2001 Disco II with 79k miles
Nov 09, 2005 (7:39 pm)
I am needing new shocks. I have looked into KYB, OME and Bilsteins. Which do you recommend and why? I drive a stock 2000 DII and do mostly around town driving. I have and will go offroading several (3-5) times a year.
