On some significant terrain and my traction control didn't seem to engage.
No lights or other indication of a problem. Do occasionally have the 3 amigos.
2004 Disco II with the dif lock in low. Got cross-axled and the TC didn't engage so had wheel spin LF and RR. Seemed to work fine when on 30 deg incline of a stream bed of softball sized rock for a few 100 yards.
I was in 1st or 2nd gear.

Have you scanned for codes when you have the 3 amigos?

Remember too that if the center dif is locked when you turn off the engine and you restart it with the center dif locked then it will automatically turn off the traction control.
If you want TC engaged then you have to NOT have the center dif locked when you stop and then restart the engine.

This does not apply to 03/04 models. They are programmed not to turn off traction control regardless of the start sequence.

I know that is true for the 03 model that came without the mechanical part of the lockable center dif. If you had a way to disable the TC then it basically became a one wheel drive vehicle.
I was however under the impression that the 04 with the built in lockable dif feature did revert back to the same start up sequence as the earlier disco's.
I could well be wrong on that though I don't own one and the users manual doesn't say.

The '04 does not require any "sequence" to keep everything working. I'm still leaning towards why he's getting the occasional 3 amigos.
