I am new to Discoweb so I am not sure if my previous post was seen. I have a 2000 Discovery 2. When I apply the brake the side lights turn on and the instrument lights dim to the same light level as if I turn the side lights on (position 2). I have had the vehicle for six months and this is a new problem.

Repaired!! You were partially correct. I had installed a trailer light harness (aftermarket) this past summer). THere was no problem until recently. I decided to take your advice and disconnect it. Whilst doing so, I noticed a purple wire had come out of the plug that is used for the Land Rover trailer connector. I pushed it back it and, "voila", problem solved. Of course I have no idea what this actually did but I am happy that the problem has been resolved. Thanks for the help.

My 03 is doing something similar my turn signal is on the brake light goes out. Thought about the plug for the harness as well.
