Short answer no! The vehicle is designed to be in 4x4 mode all the time. Long answer is Yes! But you will have to remove the Front propshaft and select Diff lock on (Small gear lever in front of main gear lever). When the diff lock is on a green light will illuminate on the dash near the speedo. This is not recommended for long duration, but is pefectly OK for a short trip on road to get you out of a fix, or for fault finding.

Make sure your 4wd shifter is in correct position and hasn\'t slipped out. I had that problem and pulled my hair out for a day until I found that something bumped the stick out of its normal spot.

The differentials should be disengaged or you going to do damage. They should only be locked in when moving at low speeds.

Landrover discovery wont start but battery is good

This usually is the starter, especially if your truck has had an oil leak going for a while as the oil will run down into the starter and cause it to intermittenly fail. Also check your battery terminals and make sure you have a good connectivity.
