Question about 2003 Land Rover Freelander
The brake light fuse and the fog light fuse keep blowing. My mechanic wired a bulb to the brake light fuse and disconnected various parts but it keeps shining bright! Does anyone know of an obvious fault?
Dirty or bad direct ground or power leads are touching ground somewhere check the switches first because they are the only moving parts and they wear

-- First - double check that you have the right sized fuse. If you're using a 15 instead of a 30 - it'll blow for sure.
-- Maybe the light is too bright for your circuit. Try a dimmer bulb.
-- Next, have you had anything installed in your car BEFORE this started happening??? More specifically, on the same circuit as the one that is blowing??? If yes, you'll need to make sure that a no wire is touching any metal part of the car, or that no screw pierced a wire and now makes contact with metal or water.mthat can easily cause a short and blowbthe fuse.
Take a few moments to inspect the condition of the wires, make sure everything looks good and use electrical tape to repair if need be.

I had a persistent problem of hill light warning and TCS warning lights coming on for no apparent reason. There is a wire connection between the stop light switch and the control unit to let the system know when brakes are being applied. Changing the stop light switch cured it. The replaced switch was certainly sticking and the new one was of a different design. Replaced it myself as switch comes with a wiring loom. Need to get on your back under the steering wheel! Not very expensive. My car 2001 TD4

Yep it happens
Look for cutts in the wiring, tape up. Check all plugs and relays, you can find.
As for diagrammes, either a Haynes of down load a manual, if you have no joy on Google or Alltheweb try http://www.landroverweb.com/Land-Rover-Range-Rover-manual-pdf.htm
There are no front fogs fitted, only the driving lights in the air dam, the switch with the 2 on it lower front dash cluster with rear fog light switch etc.
