    Needed: Brake Light Switch for my Discovery I

    I need a Brake Light Switch (system with ABS). As I understand this part, it was on Discovery 94-99, and Range Rover Classic 90-95.
    Originally part number AMR2010G
    New Part number is LR005794G

    I hope to pick it up local tomorrow (so Tracy, Manteca, Modesto, Stockton, Sacramento), otherwise I'm ordering a new one.

    Also looking for a Cruise Control ECU but not in such a rush for it.

    You don't want to mess with one of the old ecu's. Try to pick up a DII cruise control ecu with a pigtail. There are instructions online for the wiring. You're far more likely to find a good DII ecu than a DI. I think the DII is AMR5700 whereas the old DI was AMR1172 or something close to that.

    I was looking to pick the switch up today - because guess what you can't do when you don't have brake lights. Take it out of park! Lucky that it randomly works or I wouldn't have made it home last night. Anyway, I'm now ordering one.

    As as far as the D2 cc ECU... I'll have to try that mod, as I have one from my donor car.

    Thanks for the help, guys!!

    On a happy note... I pulled the failing switch out and found one micro spring had stretched over the years. I was able to take it out and tighten the dang thing (while waiting for my new replacement to arrive) and the switch has been working flawlessly since. It took a ton of time to get the spring, pivot and the contacts all back in place - not any project I'd want to do again. I now understand why these switches stop working after so many years of being reliable.

    Next time you run into a bad brake switch try this. It worked for me a number of years ago.
