On this weekend’s trip to the Lost Coast 3 lights turned on and have stayed on:
Downhill control
ABS
Traction Control

Does all 3 of these mean something? Truck ran and handled fine, didn’t notice any issues. Was able to go into 4L or 4H with no issues also.

Yep, that is the "Three Amigos". A little googling of "Land Rover Discovery Three Amigos" should get you all the info you could ever imagine. 

The simple solution is a wheel speed sensor. From there, the possibilities get more difficult and expensive. You'll want to find someone in the forum with a D2 scanner to see exactly what part is causing the fault.

It's true. Drive the Disco exclusively for a year or two, then start driving a Toyota and you'll understand why we say that Toyotas are boring. There's no sense of adventure. You don't have the thrill of wondering if anything will happen when you turn the key! You don't get the random gifts of warning lights! You aren't serenaded by new and unknown noises! How dull.

I think all my warning lights look festive around the holidays. I put it in "sport" mode just to add a little green to the orange and red.

Not sure where you're located but I have a code clearer.  I've only had to replace one ABS sensor that was causing issues.  All the other times I've had 3 amigos I just clear the codes and hose off the tires and sensors and they don't come back.

 

I can't seem to add an awesome gif so sadly the picture will have to do.

I have this for my DII, it reads the specific code(s), and clears the 3 Amigo lights on the dash after.

 

Mine turned about to be the ABS Valve Switch Module Graeme pointed out, or could be an ABS  sensor(s) that Alyson mentioned.  Also check the ABS sensor connection(s): .http://www.roverpart...nt-discovery-2/

 

Have the code read first before you buy any new or replacement parts!

It looks like your in San Francisco and Brenton lives there and had a D2 and I would highly wager a code reader.

Agree.

 

Can also be a wheel bearing with too much play, or a weak battery (voltage drops during cranking, triggering the fault).  Clearing the fault often gives you a few thousand miles before it returns.

I hope you got a D2 specific ABS reader, as most generic OBD2 readers won't help you see D2 ABS codes.

 

ABS Amigo, or a Hawkeye, are the cheapest options I know of.

Oh I got one recommended here on another thread a while back. Soon as I’m back in Cali I’ll give it a try or I can drop by San Carlos and use yours :)

Ok finally got the part from Graeme's place this week.

 

Also went to a Pick N Pull and took a 2003 ABS Control Unit as a backup in case mine has corrosion and also to look at how the sensor is removed freely without struggling with the brake lines and trying not to disconnect them. Looked simple enough.

 

Issue started as soon as I removed the bolts from my unit and lifted it a bit with a harness to keep it elevated. There is an extra yellow/black cable coming out from the current in-place sensor which I have no way to reconnect if I swap in the new sensor. It looks like an add-on or aftermarket mod. Any ideas what this is/could be? I decided to put back the control unit as-is since I wasn't sure what would happen not reconnecting that cable back would do.

That I am not sure on.  That is the shuttle valve on the bottom of the abs unit.  It looks like they may have bypassed the factory hookup internal to the abs block.  NOT sure I have seen this before.   Just did a shuttle valve today.
