The cable release needs a fair bit of effort to release. Use the curved bit of the jack handle, bit of a fiddle to get hold of the cable to start with. Then you need to follow the posts on how to release the EPB module. Disco_Mikey has a post that most people follow. It's either a DIY job or if not give the info to a good indie. The main stealers will try to supply you with a new module. That's only necessary if yours is knackered, which is unlikely. Best of luck. Thumbs Up

Pull until you think it will break

New actuator can be up to £900, indy adjustment less than £100 Thumbs Up

Thanks...

Thanks for this post... Just saved a recovery call out!
The wire loop has a white plastic collar, and sits under the console: it does need a good yank... I used a fat Allen key to hook it and then grip like a chainsaw-starter....
Seems to have reset my otherwise immobile Disco, so many thanks for the tip

Out of interest, how much movement should there be I can pull my cable a good way before you reach a dead end.
Doesn't seem to actually do anything, daren't pull too hard just in case!!

Have the same issue, SWMBO called from Tesco's car park to say that the handbrake wont release!! It had screamed at here a couple of days ago but nothing since.

Tried to release using the cable but nothing; perhaps I wasn't pulling the cable hard enough?

Just about to relent and call out my non LR garage to assist. Big Cry

Went back and had another go and managed to get the brake released! Very Happy Have pulled the fuse for now but will likely need to get someone else to have a look at the module before commiting to buy a new one.

Epb - hand brake fixed finally

I've been having Issues with my parking brake since I bought my car. Everytime I'd take off the hand brake it didn't seem to release fully. I'd put it into neutral/drive/reverse and see if it rolled freely which it didn't. I'd have to apply the EPB and drive off a few times till eventually it seemed to move freely.

On motorway journeys the car didn't feel right and felt like it was dragging...

After failed trips to a few garages and a few months of Big Cry I now have a fully working (touchwood) EPB- Electronic Parking Brake thanks to the help of Mick aka Flack Very Happy Thumbs Up


Parts changed in the process by so called experts :

New rear calipers
Genuine rear brake pads.
Genuine brake shoes
Genuine brake shoes fitting kit

And after all this money spent the EPB still didn't work correctly Crying or Very sad until I made a trip to Mick. The last garage that fitted the brake shoes didn't adjust the parking brake or better still didn't know what the were doing on this...

After Mick adjusted the EPB it now works Very Happy
No screeching and when released car rolls freely in neutral/drive/reverse. Motorway driving is smooth and I'm very pleased to say the least.

I found a chap on eBay who sells the full module for the EPB (£300ish) which luckily I didn't need, saving me a lot of money.

Some advise, buy a new set of brake shoes with the fitting kit, Dealership price was £150 roughly. Find someone who knows what they are doing and get this fitted and adjusted.

New calipers are not expensive so your better doing the whole brakes while its open, especially if your keeping the car.

Thanks Mick (Flack)

Help needed sun roof left open

Hi ,help needed .Firstly I love my Disco 3 ,the best thing since sliced bread.
Here's the story so far.My wife had a toe op last month and now she is driving again can only drive an auto ,hence the Disco.Got a phone call on Monday ,the EPB was stuck on and not working so went home and released it ,what she forgot to tell me was she left the sunroof open and it monsooned it earlier.
So the symptoms are now
NO EPB working but released
Gear selector stuck in park,released it crawled home ,3rd gear only ,A big F comes up on the gear selector on the dash also the gear selctor where you select is says it is in drive and I also have a book sign that says the fault system cannoct be selected.
I know that I have left the roof open and forgot it so my wife was just unlucky.
Booked it in with the local landrover specalist.
Any ideas please.
Thanks Paul G.

Well, after managing to release the hand brake and drive around for a couple of weeks without it, I have put it to a local independent here (it was also overdue a service, needed a track rod and wheel alognment). I asked them to reset the handbrake module and even left them a printed copy of DMs instructions. The have now come back to me and said they are not prepared to muck about with the module so could only recommend fitting a new one Banging Head Banging Head Banging Head

I'm picking it up today so will have a go myself before I give up and get a new one!

To top it all off, I am heading to the Lake District with it in just over a week and my other car's clutch has just given up! Big Cry

I have occasional screaming. So I stop using it for parking. Now I have replaced rear breaks and only adjusting the shoes if left to do so it might be cured.
If you can drive without issues, trip to the lakes will not be a problem. Been there in autumn and I haven't used it once.
