Brake swith at the brake pedal.
both mine and my wifes Land rovers did the same thing.
once replaced car would go into gear.
do your brake lights stay on no matter pressing or not?

What do you mean gear? It is probably not a fuse.

My 2008 Land Rover lr3 will not move in the drive position. What has happened?

No doubt, a transmission issue. Begin by verifying fuel level and condition in the transmission, and proceed directly to the transmission shop.

Transmission locked up - could not move in any gear, neutral only allows to roll backward not forward - what could it be? 200 land rover discovery with 182k miles

Is it a manual trans and when you say "could not move in any gear", does the engine stall when you try to move it? When it moves backward is that with the engine moving? If you answered yes to both questions then the trans is stuck in reverse. You may still be able to move the shifter but something has failed internally. If it has an automatic trans then you may have a simple linkage problem, or it may require a more in-depth inspection.

I have a land rover it starts but it wont move!!!!!

hi centa, sounds to me like the brake release on the gear selector, when you put your foot on the brake it releases the gear selector peg so you move the gear selector, if you can remove the top cover have a look down and see if you can see the lock peg moving, if it is, it sounds to be more like an internal problem. hope it is something simple.
