That could be caused by an electrical short from an aftermarket add-on. I've see it from fog lights and a bad alarm system module.

You should be able to use Dexron III in a 1996 Land Rover Discovery. Check with your dealer to make sure though.

No, if you are talking about a Range Rover Discovery.

I had the same problem on my 96 Discovery. It turns out, if the low end of the new TPS reads even a little bit higher than the old TPS, then the engine will rev high. It can be reset at LR dealership to map the new TPS, or you can hog out the screw holes on the new TPS and turn it clockwise until it reads as low or lower than the old TPS, or you can try cleaning the old TPS and reinstalling it. I was able to fix it by rotating, but I also was able to read the TPS signal at the OBD2 diagnostic port.

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.

I had this same problem my 1996 discovery . oddly enough lights came on bright etc i thought ok all electrical is good .. Nope , i jumped a pair of battery cables from the negative battery post to the bracket where alternator bolts on to a ground pretty much .. This problem went away completely.. So it was just a current issue wasnt getting enough to light those spark plugs my guess or the computer was doing something else whne it diditn see all the current it needed .. i have no idea but it fixed it
