We just purchased a '96 for a winter ride, and there are a couple of things I would like to know about.
First, I can't seem to be able to shift the T-case diff lock lever. It will move between high and low, but not to the side to engage the lock, in either high or low.
Second, the cruise control doesn't work. The rocker switch lights up, but nothing else happens when I push the Set button. Are there some common issues I should be checking for with the cruise?
Yesterday I replaced the front pads, but I think the whole brake system will need a flush and refill as the pedal is still not quite right, and the right side collector/manifold gasket was leaking like crazy, so that got replaced along with new studs. So far I like working on it, nice and simple. The next big thing will be shocks. Are the fronts as much of a pain to replace as they look like? Looks like a spring compressor will be needed?

Thanks!

All your questions are common on these trucks.

The diff lock is probably frozen with rust. Can search for more details but you can try wd-40 to try and loosen up the lever. I had to take the whole assembly off mine and really work on it to loosen it.

The cruise could be the vacuum balloon thing in the engine bay. Near the drive wire. Mine has never worked but also didn't bother to fix it.

The shocks aren't bad to replace. No more difficult than any other car if you have replaced them before on other vehicles.

There are a lot of things that can cause the cruise control to not work. Things like vacuum lines, relays, ECU, wheel sensors, wiring issues, vacuum pump, etc. Best do a search for it. There's lots of info out there because this is a really common problem on both the Disco 1 and the Range Rover Classic. They are pretty much the same system.
