Auto dial?

Not overly clear what an 'auto dial' is. But I have discovered with my car that if you lose the brake vacume (maybe you have pressed the brake with the engine off, got out to check you locked the house 👀) then when you try again the pedal doesent go down enough to allow the engine to start. You really have to press it like mad to get it to move enough to allow the inhibiter to function.

If your on about something else then please ignore this message.

I think you might have a faulty brake pedal switch, they are notorious for failing on Discovery 3s and 4s. If it can't see the brake pedal, it sometimes uses brake pressure as a back up which you'd get if you pressed harder on the pedal.

Its the gear selector on a MY2012 and newer.......and you need to press the brake to start it.

Afraid i've never experienced that problem though so no idea

It could be the interlock on the rotary switch, I had the same problem but mine didn’t rectify itself, I had to strip it down and lock the interlock off by locking it back in the off position with a screw until a new rotary switch arrived. Thumbs Up

It will when others won't,
It goes where others don't.

I picked up a S/H rotary seleccter for my 2014 commercial from the bay for not a lot of money, this was just because I wanted a working green LED circular ring which has now also packed up! Sad However at least I have a known working selector as a spare.

Diso-mikey is there any serviceable parts in it?
Or anything else it could be apart from brake switch?
