Bad timing to not shift out of park. I was next in line at gas pump at Costco. I couldn't figure what was wrong with my basic knowledge. Yes, I was stepping on the brake pedal with engine running. When flat bed arrived, he couldn't winch the truck on bed because gears in park, wheels didnt turn, and weight. Well, I decided to Google the problem and linked it to possible brake switch. Brake lights were out. I tried to fiddle with it while waiting for rector to arrive with dollies. Tow truck driver helped me locate the switch. Not sure what we did, but it finally shifted in gear and I drove it home.
My Disco I is a 99, but in the past, I seem to come across w/ a few parts that are associated with 98 model instead. Looking above the brake pedal I see 2 switches. 1 above another.
Can anyone tell me what switch is what here?
Is the repair a simple remove and replace?
Looking to purchase part from local NAPA store versus dealer. I prefer the conveinence in case part is wrong and down time is minimized.
Thanks for any help here.
