The new Driver Information System Handbook (on the GTR website) states that gear selected information is as follows;

(copied from the manual - hope LR dont mind)

The display also indicates the current transmission selection. For example, if reverse gear is selected, then ‘R’ is displayed on the gearbox data icon.

Note: For vehicles with manual transmission, the display will show R N 1 2 3 4 5 6.
For vehicles with automatic transmission, the display will show P R D N


Looks like a case of incorrect first manual.....

Could be!! - another explanation could be that GTR has been updated to conform with the omission? Indeed LR CS have now admitted that it "has been omitted frm the vehicle" - note "omitted" not "was not intended to be there" Wink

United Kingdom 2006 Discovery 3 TDV6 Base 7 Seat Manual Rimini RedDiscovery 3
GEAR NOT SHOWING

I had this fault with mine and the warning message 'Park Brake Fault' I had the Land Rover Assist guy out who fixed the problem, it was a computer software issue where the memory had 'lost' the gear settings. I had to re-train the memory to recognise the gears by driving for 10 seconds in each gear inc reverse. (A useful tip was to do it in low ratio on a quite road) Worked a treat, he plugged in his laptop and diagnosed the fault. Cleared it from memory and touch wood has not reoccurred.

Clever these computers Smile Thumbs Up

Mine went at least a couple of times after my post above.I used the " gear retrain" method many times but it only solved it temporarily.Replaced gear sensor module and a transfer case module and so far so good.

United Kingdom 2005 Discovery 3 TDV6 S Manual Zermatt SilverDiscovery 3

Sounds very like the problems I've ben having as well.

Just spoken to the dealer for the umpteenth time and finally got through to someone with greasy hands who was getting a bit frustrated with mine. He said - "Yours is the one that comes in with an EPB fault indication, then loss of gear indication and reversing lights isn't it?". After the mechanic had "sorted it" on the last visit he "took it for a blast" and thinks to himself "This clutch feels wrong", so has a prod and poke to see what's what. The self adjuster has become a self non-adjuster, so needs to be looked at. I understand he's ordered all the bits he can (more than he expects to use) so they can get it all on out and do it all rather than have me keep on coming back every few weeks.....

United Kingdom 2007 Discovery 3 TDV6 XS Manual Zambezi SilverDiscovery 3

My Manual Disco3 suffered the following faults, all on one day

will not release parking brake automatically

reverse sensors stopped bleeping

gear selected screen blank for first and reverse, about 4 seconds delay on the others

Coincidence?

I am guessing its a software/electronics fault

will call dealer and report back

If of course anyone has any thoughts or similar experiences....

There is a post about this somewhere. Its easy to fix.

I think you need to find a quiet stretch of road, engage low box. Start in first and drive through each gear in turn,1,2,3,4,5,6, holding it in each gear until the gear number displays.

I think thats it, mine is auto so never had the issue.

Start in reverse then each forward gear, hold each gear with foot fully off the clutch until the gear indication shows the selected gear, this must all be done in one ignition cycle. Once complete turn ignition off and remove key until the radio clock & park brake indicator go off.

Gear selected not showing & Auto relaese on manual disco

The first issue is the calibration of the "x-y" gear position switch situated onto of the gearbox,,it's come out of sequence thats all.Symtoms drving along you change gear and then amber park/brake is on and no gear display.H/Brake does still work, if you cycle ignition everything comes back to normal, set off again when you select third3 gear bang it happens again, not a common fault, as we carry full LR IDS diagnosics we can calibrate on site.This involves driving the car through all the gears inc Reverse,,making sure the clutch pedal is fully depressed after each gear change...Doing it this way you the system resets and clears all faults codes...

The auto handbrake relaese on manual disco3 not 100% when it was standard, but am driving a 08reg now,but it was on my last assist vehicle which was a 56reg...
