    Did the brake pedal switch solve this problem? I also have this issue 2002 freelander.

    same thing on my 2004 SE3.
    did find a puddle of water inside the toolbox cargo space around an electrical connector. could that be shorting brake lights out?

    Both my brake lights stop working at the same time and also changed everything, i.e. bulb and fuses to no avail.



    I will be trying to check the brake pad switch when i get home but don't know what I am looking for.

The brake light Swich on the brake pedal ( top 1 the other is cruise control ) may be faulty , also make sure you are testing the lamps on the bumper the top ones are only fog lights ( Spent hours on wrong bloddy ones - wifes car)

Don't always trust auto parts store to give you the right replacement parts. Twice I was given the wrong replacement lamps, double dimple connectors instead of single dimple. Once I got the proper replacement bulbs into the proper sockets (single dimple for the bumper and double dimple for the taillights up by the rear gate) ALL the lamps, bumper and taillights, worked properly when the brake peddle was deployed.

SOURCE: rear brake lights stopped working

brake light switch fault, above the brake pedal, may have two wires or four depending on variation of model, not expensive to replace.

Good luck Davelee

SOURCE: The main brake lights don't work on my 2002

That is NORMAL -- just found out myself. ONLY- the center light and the lower (bumper) lights are your brake lights. The main lights are ONLY used for running lights.... Got to luv it!

I have a 2002 Land Rover Freelander that is stuck in Park. The stop light switch has been replaced with an autozone part, but it still does not work. The break lights are also not working.


This might help you. Otherwise, just find a mechanic you trust and have him or her check the brake light bulbs. It could also be fuse problems. Check the diagram for your lights or check your manual. http://forums.edmunds.com/discussion/5166/land-rover/freelander/freelander-transmission-problems

Location of brake light switch fault on 2002 discovery freelander


The brake light switch is on top of brake pedal arm. Check your bulbs, and connections to the rear lights (unplug harnesses and clean the connectors as well as bulb(s) etc... )

Also, it (shouldn't) be the brake light switch if you can shift out of park. Good luck.

I have a 2002 Freelander 2.5 SE automatic V6. All the interior lights are working apart from the centre console lights. The fuel, temperature, rev counter and speedo are all working. The heated rear screen...


The internal panel lights work off the left hand side of the side lights and are protected by the 10 amp fuse for this side. I had replaced both stop and tail lights with a heavy duty bulbs and because the left hand side powers the panel lights as well, obviously it was too much for the circuit. The right hand side was okay.

2004 Landrover Freelander stop/reverse light fuse keeps blowing


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

W reg landrover, freelander


This fuse is no.2 in the fuse box above the pedals and it should be a 15 amp.If you plugged a trailer in then check those electrics or check your brake light switch on the brake pedal.
