Hi ! I had the same problem on my 2000 V8 Disco and it turned out to be nothing more than the off side front wheel ABS sensor.

Try disconnecting the positive side of the battery for about ten minutes. My 2000 neon was doing the same thing. If there is no actual problem, electrically, then the lights should go out the next time the computer does a check of the car. Hopefully there is no actual issue. See if there is moisture around or in your fuse/relay box or dash. I'm not that experienced in the electronics department, so that is all the info I can in knowledge suggest.

My Traction control, ABS, hill decent and handbrake warning lights have all come on at the same time


This is a common problem. The WABCO abs pump has issues with the fluttter valves, there is a repair kit available. Watch out the dealers will try to sell you a whole new unit instead of supplying the repair kit.

The hill descent, abs and tracking lights have come on two times within the last week. They come on while driving and will not come back on when the engine is started.


Suggests either Wheel Bearing, ABS Sensor Fault, or Shuttle valve. Best to get it to a dealer and on the computer for them to diagnose what exactly is wrong.

I have a 99 Discovery II and the Traction Control, Hill Descent Control and ABS lights have suddenly come on. What is the system fault or, in the alternative, how can they be reset?


Can't be reset if your ABS system or some component is faulty. check speed sensor on the wheel bearing, is there any rubbing or dull grinding noise coming from the front wheels? could be the entire bearing and speed sensor assembly has gone bad. this would cause all these faults to appear as that sensor triggers all these events in order to slow your vehicle while it downshifts itself and applies breaking to control the vehicle as a part of the stabilization system. The alternative is that the ABS system is not functioning properly and the trac control and hill decent systems are being deactivated as part of the fault. If the system cant apply breaking then the systems are rendered unavailable. the vehicle will stop but not using ABS just regular breaks. Check all ABS break fuses for damage.

you've got a bad wheel speed sensor or corresponding tone ring. take it to a dealer. they'll hook it up to a computer and tell you which sensor or tone ring it is and give you an estimate. you only pay for the hour of diag.
