SOURCE: TC,ABS and HILL DECENT WARNING
its the abs sensors which are part of the front hub/wheel bearing assembly get the lights reset by a dealer if it happens again u will need 2 renew one or both of the hubs £200 per side tho!

I have a X Reg 2.5KV6 Freelander also, same problem.
The solution for me and many other was to replace one of the speed sensors. They reside in the hub of each wheel and monitor each wheels speed, if one is rotating faster it applies the brake to that wheel (Traction control) Also controls ABS and HDC.
If one sensor fails the vehicle turns off the TC, HDS & ABS.
unfortunately to find out which sensor has failed the vehicle needs to be plugged into a diagnostic PC at a garage. I paid £40 in Stoke-on-Trent to have this done, I then knew which was the faulty sensor and replaced it.
I have a friend who also took out his faulty sensor and cleaned it (WD40 & a wire brush) and put it back in, never had the problem again, although you need to be carful doing this as they are held in place by a copper bush and need to be intact to allow re-fitment.
As a comferting note for you, I drove my V6 for 7 months with the very same fault, just remember you have no ABS or traction control though.
Another trick BUT I DO NOT ADVISE THIS ON PUBLIC ROADS is as follows. get up to 15mph in D on auto box, turn off engine turn back on again whilst still moving, it should cut engine off and kick back in again (just like bump starting a manual car) for me this reset the fault and was good for three months before it went again. But be aware, this is only somthing i tried and it worked for me. it is dangerous to do this on a public road.

These landrovers have a lot of Electrical faults.The first thing i would recomend is to change the switch.Has this is the cheapest option.Hope that works for you.

unfortunately there is nothing that you can do, except take it to a land rover dealer to check with their tester, aftermarket code readers are not capable of reading land rovers. Hope this helps
