    Default Disco 3 break light not working

    Hi, I have a 2005 Disco 3 v8 SE. the right hand break light has stopped working. The tail light part of the bulb works fine. I have replaced the bulb, checked the contacts and the wiring that I can see and all looks fine. The left hand break light works fine. Any suggestions as to where to look next or what the cause could be?

    If you used a cheap globe itís possible that the quality isnít as good as youíd think and the globe is a dud. For some or other reasons OEM bulbs are if a better quality.

    There is a few fuses in the left rear compartment (Standing at the back looking to the front)
    Where your Jack is stored.
    It also hold the fuses for the door solenoids.

    Yes, and only real L/R bulbs works
    You can even get a system fault with wrong bulbs

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I have replaced the bulb with one from Landrover but still not working. Will check the fuse this morning. Hopefully thatís all it is.

    From your local parts shop, Osram and OR Phillips branded 12v globes are just as good, if not the same as your LR parts bin.
