Question about 1999 Land Rover Range Rover
Theirs orange light on the dash that looks like cogs but it only comes on when its in low range? can anyone tell what and why this is?
That would be your "LOW RANGE" indicator light. Confirming that you are in 4wdLow. If it remains on when not in low then you might try shifting from low to hi (or vice versa) travel a few feet and then transfer back. You should notice the light going on or off when passing thru the center of the shift gate between low/hi.
To be certain, the factory owners manual has simple detailed instructions on this procedure.
Hope this helps.

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.

Mine just started doing the same thing. the book says that the electronic transmission controler is in fault mode. I haven't found anything else out yet

The Green "S" light on the dash is for sport mode. This can be turned on by the mode switch by the gear selector. If your vehicle is equipped with ACE (Active cornering Enhancement) Sport mode will help stiffen the suspension with hydraulic fluid. Hope this helps.
Best of luck

yes...it's as same as the Hand Brake Sign light. if it's NAS Spec's then no sign. only Hand Brake Light will remain on. but you still will be getting a message in the message center says Check Brake Pads
