Question about 2003 Land Rover Discovery
1) This is more likely to be the door lock unit, and this can be caused by
the actuators in the lock mechanism failing usually causing the door to
remain locked. Replacement requires the whole lock unit to be replaced at a
cost of roughly £60 a lock, and a hours work. Helps if you have small
hands.Requires a full strip down of the door and you will need the lock unit,
trim clips (a few quid) and a trim removal tool (tenner). You can bodge
with a flat head screwdriver, but the tool does help prevent damage to
the clips & trim panel.
2) Probably the bulbs. Easy to change, with a pozi, undo the 2 screws holding the binnacle to the dash (lower the steering wheel and you'll see the holes) pull firmly towards you till the clips release. Then there are 4 screws, 2 per side on the instrument cluster. Unplug the multi-plugs and lift towards you. Don't overturn, or you can damage the guages. Twist bulbs free, and test with a multimeter (blown ones will be open circuit). They will be a few quid from the dealer each.
3) Radio code will need stealer action I'm afraid. Try and independent perhaps and proffer beer money?
