    Huy are you aware the brake is on the end of the transfer box not on the rear axle? There is no secondry release but there is an adjuster which yuo can turn which will de adjust your park brake, If you need further info tell me I have a manual and could maybe send you the relevant pages

Probably the same set up as my 96 Discovery, Automatic transmission. The emergency brake is the drum (looks like a big metal flywheel, about 14 inches diameter) on the output of the center differential going to the drive shaft for the rear wheels. There is a short cable from there up to the driver's lever. By disconnecting the rear drive shaft, the e-brake drum can be removed. Its pretty heavy, so don't drop it on your knogan.

You can energise the interlock solenoid, by you give a positive (+12V) lead to the RED and a negative (ground) to the black line at the transmission selector's connector.
If it works you should check the positive signal at the red.
It should be there if the ignition is on, brake pedal depressed, and the transfer box is in some gear, and the fuse 1 isn't blown.
At the black cable should be a ground signal if the selector in 'P' position.
If you give me an e-mail address I'll send the wiring.

The ABS problem, you have better to check followings.
- All the wheels bearings' play.
- are the ABS sensors at the deepst position? Knock some to that head (not strong) and they shouldn't move deeper.

SOURCE: how do i turn on the cruise control for a 96 land

Like many cruise control systems there are the working controls and sepearate master power switch that can disable cruise control so it can't be turned on accidentally. The working controls to set speed, acc and off are on the steering wheel. There is a master power switch though on the center area of the dash next to the left of heater controls on a US model. It is a picture of a road running straight under an overpass.

The system is vaccumm controlled though and if you have a vaccumm leak it will not work. They are pretty easy to fix though and easy to see. Open the hood and find the throttle body assembly. Look for the throttle cable and in that area there should be a black soft plastic hose about the thickness of a pen. If this is diconnected from any connectors or cracked the cruise control won't work. Good Luck!

SOURCE: stuck in park, Land Rover Discovery

Had the same problem with my 03 Disco. Went through the usual, checking the fuses, etc. I went ahead and replaced my break light switch on the brake pedal. $15.00 fix, or I thought so; still had the problem! Took it in for repairs and found out it was fuses after all... To get the parking lock to disengage you need to pull of the housing, which is tough and then press in the locking pin at the base of the shift lever to shift out of park. you can do it with the engine running and it will drive just fine until you put it into park again. Check your brake lights if there is a problem. Could be a sign of the brake switch failure. In my case the lights were out, but a cheap trailer rental did the damage. The short in the trailer blew some fuses and it was a problem that cost me $60.00 at the repair shop....
