Question about 1996 Land Rover Discovery
Dash lamps and tail lamps are usually on the same fuse. So check your fuses. Check them electrically as checking the visually is not enough..Buy yourself a test probe from an autoparts store clip then end to a good ground, like the vehicle body and touch the probe to each end of the fuses. If the lamp lights up at both ends, the fuse is good. If it lights up at only one end, then that fuse has failed and needs replacing. If the probe does not light up at all, then that fuse has no power, this may be due to that circuit NOT being turned on. Make sure that you turn the tail lamps on before you check the fuses. The brake lamp is most likely a hinckey bulb, but some some Landrovers have seperate fuses for each lamp so again, check fuses..

Testimonial: "Your advice regarding checking the fuses electri- cally was extremely helpful since a visual inspection revealed nothing unusual. Very sound advice!"
The problem is with burnt fuses, try finding the busted fuse and installing new one. Good Luck

I bought a 96 LR se7 a few years ago and remodeled it for hunting. I had some trouble keeping lights burning especially the tail lights until I wrapped them up with tape and pretty much sealed them off from outside elements. Your problem sounds a little bigger in that the others may be right about fuse problem. Just check your wiring as much as possible to make sure there are no bare places on them. Use a meter if you have one.

The dash and tail lights are controled by the first "click" of the headlight switch found on the turn signal arm.
If the fuses are good, then your turn signal arm has failed.
First click is running lights (dash and outside marker lights), second is headlights.
The 1st position of the 2 position switch has contacts internally that have worn and no longer complete the circuit.
Replace the turn signal arm.

SOURCE: S Light came on dash board
S light is your Sport Shift mode light indicator.. Press the Mode Button below your shifter, and it will go out and put you back in normal shift mode

SOURCE: abs light on in land rover
I have spent way too much money trying to get the 3 amigos to go out...ABS light, TC light and downhill descent. I have decided to try and ID the wires that go to those particular dash lights and cut them. I am tired of this ****. Landrover told me three different things that may cause this issue and told me to start with the least expensive one first! Go to hell, Landrover. I will NEVER buy another Landrover product. Which wires can I cut?
