Question about 1997 Land Rover Discovery

1 Answer

Stuck in park

My '97 Land Rover Discovery is having troubles shifting out of park. Once in gear, it doesn't have a problem between reverse/drive, only when trying to get it out of park.

Do you hear a solenoid click near the shifter when you press the brake pedal?

    There is a shift interlock solenoid that is locked in place to prevent accidental shift from park unless the brake is depressed.



    Either the microswitch at the top of the brake pedal is broken, mis-aligned, worn, or internally failing.... or the solenoid itself is failing.



    This repair is best left to the dealer - as the switch is under the dash near the steering column, and should be done soon so you're not stranded when the part actually fails 100%.



    Thanks!

1998 land rover discovery transmission makes loud banging noise when shifting from pari to drive?


Tons of possibilities here (transmission, differential, motor mounts, transmission mounts....), so I'll ask some debug questions to help narrow it down. Does it make the noise when shifting into reverse? Also, does it make the noise only when shifting from park, or also when shifting from neutral (into drive or into reverse)? Did the noise start as an occasional, softer noise and get worse over time, or did it start suddenly? Does the vehicle lurch at the same time as the noise? What happens when you go from Reverse to Drive, or vice versa? Has any work been done recently (brakes, tires, alignment, suspension, transmission)?

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.

First check that the brake lamps work, if they do not , check the fuses , the switch and wires to it at the brake pedal. The transmission shift lock is controlled by a brake switch. Hope that helps

I own a 97 land rover disco with automatic transmission. It has great performance but sometimes the gear will not shift from the fist position for some time. One needs to drive for about two kms at high...


Have you tried flushing the auto box oil through, and changing the filters? Could be low pressure causing it to stay low until the temp comes up and it expands slightly.

2002 Land Rover Discovery rolls when it is in PARK.


It is known as the Parking Pawl assembly, and requires removal of the gearbox from the vehicle along with the transfer box. You then remove the extension housing (requiring new bolts) and then replace the park lock gear and o'ring.

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.

Not moving in any gear


Have you checked the High-Low ratio lever.  Half-way between High and Low is a Neutral, so no drive to any axle even if a gear in the main box is selected.
Try locking the differential.  If this gives you drive, then it might be a final drive (half-shaft) failure.
