Do not rely on the Parking brake to hold the vehicle stationary if the brake warning lamp is illuminated or the EPB warning lamp is flashing. Seek qualified assistance urgently. A faulty EPB system can lead to personal injury or death.


Do not rely on the EPB to operate correctly if the EPB warning lamp flashes. Seek qualified assistance urgently. A faulty EPB system can lead to personal injury or death.


The EPB operates on the rear wheels, therefore, secure parking of the vehicle is dependent on being on a hard and stable surface. Using the EPB on loose surfaces may result in damage to the vehicle.


Do not rely on the EPB to operate effectively if the rear wheels have been immersed in mud or water. Doing so may result in damage to the vehicle or personal injury.

The EPB switch is located on the centre console. Operate as follows:

  1. With the ignition switched on, press the brake pedal and press down on the EPB switch, to release the EPB.

  2. Pull the EPB switch up and release it, to apply the EPB. The EPB warning lamp illuminates to confirm. See ELECTRIC PARKING BRAKE (EPB) (RED).


    The red EPB warning lamp continues to illuminate for at least 10 seconds after the ignition has been switched off.

The EPB automatically applies when Park (P) is selected.


To prevent automatic operation, with the vehicle stationary, press and hold the EPB switch in the release position before selecting P.

The EPB applies automatically if the ignition is switched off and the vehicle's speed is below 3 km/h (2 mph).


To prevent automatic operation, when the vehicle is stationary, press and hold the EPB switch in the release position. Within 5 seconds, switch off the ignition and continue to hold the EPB switch for a further 2 seconds.

If the EPB is operated when the vehicle's speed is less than 3 km/h (2 mph), the vehicle is brought to an abrupt stop. The stop lights do not illuminate.


Driving the vehicle with the EPB applied will cause serious damage to the braking system.

When stationary, with the EPB applied and the transmission engaged in a forward or reverse gear, press the accelerator pedal to gradually release the EPB. The result is that the vehicle can be driven away smoothly.

When shifting from P with the EPB applied, the EPB automatically releases to allow a smooth drive away.


Automatic EPB release for pulling away from a standstill is only possible when the driver’s door is closed, or the driver’s seat belt is buckled.

To override the EPB automatic release, pull the EPB switch up and hold.

In an emergency, apply and hold the EPB switch to give a controlled reduction in the vehicle's speed. The vehicle can also be brought to a complete stop. The vehicle must be travelling at more than 3 km/h (2 mph), and the accelerator pedal must also be released. The amber brake warning lamp flashes, a warning chime sounds, and the instrument panel displays a warning message. The stop lights illuminate. Release the EPB switch, or press the accelerator pedal to release the EPB.

If an EPB fault is detected, the instrument panel displays a warning message. The amber brake warning lamp also illuminates. See BRAKE (AMBER).

If a fault is detected during EPB operation, the instrument panel displays a warning message. The red EPB warning lamp also flashes. See ELECTRIC PARKING BRAKE (EPB) (RED).

Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles (PHEVs) only:

To protect against unintentional vehicle movement, the EPB is automatically applied when the driver is detected to be exiting the vehicle. The EPB is applied when Drive (D), Sport (S) or Reverse (R) is selected and all the following conditions exist:

  • The vehicle is stationary.

  • The driver's seat belt is unfastened or the driver's door is open.

  • The brake pedal is released.

The EPB drive-away feature operates if:

  • The EPB is applied.

  • The engine is running.

  • A forward or reverse gear is selected.

  • The driver's seat belt is fastened or the driver's door is closed.*

  • The accelerator pedal is pressed.

* If it is believed that the driver has left the vehicle, only the driver's seat belt is monitored.


The vehicle may move briefly before the EPB is applied. On a steep gradient, the EPB does not apply if significant vehicle speed is reached as the brake pedal is released.


If the EPB is released, it does not automatically re-apply until an additional action is detected that indicates the driver is exiting the vehicle.

Electronic park brakes

The electronic park brake (EPB) is here to stay. It’s fitted to every current model of Land Rover except, of course, Defender where too much re-design would be involved and it would be objectionably out of character anyway. The EPB certainly makes life easy. A mere flick of the lightweight switch lever applies the park brakes sufficiently to render the vehicle immovable on the steepest slopes. 

It’s a similar wimp’s effort to release it, and it will even release for you if you forget when driving off. But do we need this, and what was wrong with pulling a traditional lever and pressing the button to set it? Nothing, of course. It’s a matter of competitive vehicle manufacturers keeping up with technology, keeping weight down for emissions, monitoring costs, and de-cluttering and safety-smoothing the passenger compartment. The traditional handbrake lever is destined to become another curiosity of classic Land Rovers.

How the EPB works

On Discovery 3 and 4 and Range Rover Sport 1 models the electronic park brake system comprises four main parts: the driver’s switch in the cab, the brake module mounted in the centre of the chassis infront of the spare wheel, the cables that run from the module to the wheel brakes to operate them, and the brakes themselves, which comprise a pair of shoes inside a drum machined into the inboard side of each rear brake disc.

The driver’s switch movement replicates that of a conventional handbrake lever: up for on, down for off, which sends signals to the park brake module. A circuit board control unit inside the module activates an electric motor which, through a gearbox, drives two cables to operate the two rear drum brakes. 

The Discovery 3 park brake module (body removed here) is mounted on the chassis above the rear diff, where it’s exposed to dirt and water.

Here is a clean module with leads and cables. The plastic casing is sealed, but the mounting frame and bolts rust, making removal difficult sometimes.

This diagram shows the cables –connected to an electric motor inside the module, operate each park drum brake at the rear wheels.

To operate the cables, the electric motor, via its gearbox, rotates a splined shaft which is hollow and has an internal screw thread. A threaded connector on the left hand brake cable is located into the hollow spline, but it cannot rotate so, when the splined shaft rotates, the cable is forced in or out by the screw thread to apply or release the brake. The right hand brake cable is attached (via a force sensor) to the opposite end of the splined shaft.

Because the splined shaft can move axially, the movement applied to the left brake cable is shared with the right cable, applying each brake equally. The force sensor detects the load on the cables, signalling the motor to stop when it feels the brakes are sufficiently applied. The sensor also initiates tension adjustments in the cables to maintain the optimum park brake force. 

Each operating cable leads into the inboard side of the brake backplate where it is connected to the park drum brake assembly.

Turning the brake disc around, the inside of the disc casting is machined out to form a brake drum on which the park brake shoes operate.

The park brake shoes need to be set in position manually using the gear-toothed adjuster between the shoes (top above spring).

The park brake module communicates with other vehicle electronic systems, in particular the ABS, which influences the conditions allowing the park brake to be applied, and facilitates ‘drive away release’ in which the park brake automatically releases when a given wheel speed is detected. The module sends signals to the facia instrument panel via the CAN bus (a wiring communication system running throughout the vehicle).

This activates the red warning lamp to indicate the park brake is applied (and which stays on for a few minutes after stopping the engine). It will also flash this red lamp and illuminate the park brake’s orange fault lamp when certain faults are detected or if the park brake does not fully operate when requested by the driver’s switch. If the brakes fail to release, an emergency release cable is available inside the vehicle under the console below the park brake switch.

Current models use rear disc brakes for parking. Each brake is operated by an actuator mounted on the caliper.

Improved EPB system

The electronic park brake system on Discovery 3 and Range Rover Sport models continued into the Discovery 4. A different and superior EPB is used on later models including the current Range Rover and Sport, Evoque, later Freelander 2 and Discovery Sport. On these models the brake module is a smaller item safely housed inside the vehicle behind the rear loadspace trim, rather than underneath.

The biggest design change is the absence of the cable-operated drum brake arrangement. Instead, the new system employs the rear disc brakes for parking, applying the disc brakes via an actuator mounted directly onto each brake caliper. The actuators contain an electric motor, which moves a spindle against the caliper piston to apply the disc brake. The module controls the actuators, adjusting the force of application according to the gradient of the surface the vehicle is parked on. 

The park brake system is automatically applied when the ignition is switched off or if auto transmission ‘park’ is selected. It will automatically release when driving away, and does so in a controlled manner, according to the gradient and the driver’s use of the accelerator and transmission.

After heavy braking during driving, the brake discs can become hot and will contract as they cool when parked. So to maintain the optimum park brake force, the park brake automatically resets while parked. The new system’s components are simpler and (for the sake of emissions) lighter in weight than the earlier Discovery 3 and 4, and Sport 1 version. It is efficient and very reliable.

Current Land Rover models use the rear disc brakes for parking. Each brake is operated by an actuator.

Here is the actuator (black, and arrowed) mounted to the inboard side of the rear brake caliper on a Range Rover Evoque.

Problems with early park brakes

The original electronic park brake has caused a few expensive problems during its life. But when introduced on the Discovery 3 it was new technology (at least on a Land Rover) and so there was much to learn about potential problems and best maintenance and servicing practices. Just as the ground-breaking P38 Range Rover gained an unfair reputation for unreliability due to lack of understanding outside of dealerships and good specialists, so too did the early electronic park brake.

The systems and their foibles are now well understood and good specialist Land Rover garages know how to maintain and adjust them to avoid trouble. But others can get it wrong, leading to costly, even dangerous trouble, as we’ll see next month. 

As with most systems, they work fine with correct maintenance and use. Below, are a few typical concerns. Park brake shoes binding or dragging: evidenced by noise from the rear, excess heat felt at the road wheel and/or excessive brake dust on the wheel. The friction lining on the shoes may have been damaged by the heat. If so they, and any other heat-affect parts including the brake discs, will need to be renewed. Either way, dust is likely to have accumulated in the brake drums and needs to be removed from the drum, the shoes, and from all other internal components. 

Brake shoe retaining clips need to be renewed if they are at all suspect or damaged (a new type of clip was introduced which is, by now, likely to have been fitted to all vehicles). The clips are renewed as a matter of course when new shoes are fitted. A park brake service kit includes re-designed brake shoes and new improved retaining clips.

The brake shoe guides on the back plate also need to be cleaned, and a very light smear of grease applied. Screech noise during operation of the park brake: if accompanied by a warning lamp (which doesn’t always happen), a fault code will have been logged. This noise indicates a significant problem with the mechanical parts of the system. 

If possible, the park brake should not be used until the system has been checked because the mechanism in the module has overrun its normal amount of movement. This can happen if the cable is detached, shoe linings broken up or if the shoes are excessively worn and out of adjustment. If the mechanism has not jammed, it soon will do, though it may be possible to clear this using the ‘unjam procedure’, otherwise the module may need to be replaced. 

Squeal from rear brakes during normal braking: this won’t be caused by the park brake system, but is more likely due to the rear disc pads vibrating. The pads have since been improved, so this is only likely to occur on very low mileage vehicles that have their original pads still fitted.

Working precations

• Park-brake fault-finding and most repairs need diagnostic equipment. • It’s necessary to put the system into ‘mount mode’ to test the module and to reset the brake shoes. • The system needs to be electrically isolated 20 minutes before being worked on (including removing a rear brake disc for access), to avoid the possibility of the brake automatically re-applying, with possible subsequent seizure of the module.


It is important for the park brake shoes, drums and internal components to be periodically cleaned and the shoes reset if necessary. Adjustment of the shoes requires accuracy, and the setting can be lost if brake dust collects and becomes baked onto the shoes by heat, effectively altering the diameter of the shoes, and thus the clearance to the drum.

It’s worth checking electrical connectors and cables, and also the steel guide hoops on the suspension lower links, which locate the cables and can wear through by abrasion. The checks are due at the routine 12 month/15,000 miles service, or more frequently in arduous conditions, and especially if driven in deep mud or muddy water.

The toothed cylinder between the brake shoes here is used to set the clearance between the shoes and the drum.

The shoes are set with the disc/drum fitted in place, levering the toothed adjuster through a hole in the disc/drum.

Avioding problems

• Ensure the park brake checks are included in the annual/15,000 miles service, carried out by a main dealer or a good independent specialist. • Have the park brake cleaned and checked more frequently if regularly driving in deep mud or in a mixture of dusty and wet conditions. • Occasionally, when parked with the engine off, open the door and lean out while operating the park  brake. You’ll hear the motor running, but notice if the noise later becomes unusually loud or a screech is heard. If so, have a garage check the system before damage is done. • Occasionally, when parked, feel for heat coming from the rear wheels which suggest's a brake is binding. That needs sorting quickly. • Remember to release the park  brake before driving off. • Once the brake is correctly set and maintained correctly, there is no particular reason why an electronic park brake should give any trouble. • There’s nothing that quite beats mechanically sympathetic driving, and good maintenance.

Setting the park brake shoes

The running clearance between the brake shoes and their drums inside the discs needs to be set accurately, to avoid eventual damage to the components, including the remotely mounted module. The system needs to be electronically 

put into mount mode before adjustments are made. Each brake has two manual adjusting mechanisms which are manipulated through a hole in the brake disc. A toothed-wheel adjuster sets the shoe-to-drum clearance, and a wedge adjuster operated by a hexagon key sets the cable adjustment.

Renewing brake shoes

After replacement of the brake shoes or brake discs, a bedding in procedure must be performed to ensure the drum brakes operate satisfactorily.

Module replacement

Diagnostic tests should be performed to confirm the module is at fault before considering replacement of this expensive item. The equipment is also needed to program a new module to the vehicle. Many have been replaced unnecessarily, even due to cable problems when the cables can be replaced individually and without removing the module. As we said earlier, failure of the module is usually the result of the driver ignoring symptoms and warnings. Prompt action can avoid damaging it.

Emergency Park Brake Service

LR3 and Range Rover Sport

To put in Service mode:

Before removing the rear brake disks, please carry out this sequence to put the Electronic Park Brake into Service Mode.

Ensure brake pads and caliper is fitted to all wheels.

In the car with ignition in Position II, press the brake pedal three times and hold the pedal down.

Push down on the EPB switch for 3-5 seconds.

Go to the main fuse box in the engine bay and remove FL8 fuse 30A (pink Fuse) this will ensure that the EPB is not accidentally re-engaged.

How to adjust the Electronic Park Brake

The Electronic Park Brake is operated by a pair of brake shoes on the inside of the rear brake disks. The manufacturer recommends that you strip, clean and adjust the EPB after 50 miles of off road conditions or arduous use. If you have a loud screeching noise when the EPB is applied, then often an adjustment of the Electronic Park Brake will fix this. This procedure MUST be carried out when you change your brake disks and/or brake shoes. If the pads are worn below the limit, you should replace the pads as well as go through the Electronic Parking Brake Shoe Bedding In Procedure.

Tools Required to adjust the Electronic Park Brake

  • Flat Blade Screwdriver
  • 32mm Socket (1-1/4")
  • Torque Wrench
  • Allen Key/Hex (4mm)

Ensure that your rear wheels are off the ground and the car is on axle stands or a car lift.

Remove the rear road wheels.

For a Manual, you don't want the EPB to apply automatically, you should Push the EPB button DOWN whilst switching off the ignition and removing the key.

For an Auto, just don't apply it. The above should be fine if you are leaving the disks on and just adjusting the EPB.

If you're removing the disks for a full clean, then I'd recommend putting it into service mode and removing the 30a fuse.

There are two adjustment parts to the EPB. Using a flat blade screwdriver, remove the plastic lug to reveal a hole.

Turn the disk using the 32mm Hub Socket until the hole (that you removed the plastic plug from) is aligned with the first adjustment point behind the disk, it looks like this.

(Left side. Right side will be upside down to this)

There are two adjustment points.

One is the 4mm Hex bolt(Allen Key) (circled Yellow).

The other is the ratchet (hidden at the bottom, circled in Red).

Rotate the disk again until the hole is in line with the ratchet adjuster (Red).

(The direction of rotation must always be forward).

Using the flat blade screwdriver through the hole, tighten the ratchet until it is tight. (move in the direction AWAY from the EPB spring to release and Towards to tighten up)

Then take your torque wrench and 32mm socket and set it for between 40 and 90Nm.

Place it on the hub nut and if the disk turns, you need to add one click at a time to the ratchet with the screwdriver until the required torque is reached (I set my torque to 60Nm for this exercise).

When the Torque is reached, then you need to release the ratchet by exactly 8 clicks.

Finally, rotate the disk until the hole is in line with the Hex socket (Yellow) and undo this half a turn.

Gently tap the disk with a rubber faced mallet around the shoe area. This will release the tension and it should naturally move if it needs to.

Tighten the Hex socket back up to 6Nm. When that is completed (on both rear wheels), replace the plastic lug and re-fit the road wheels.

If they are new disks or pads, please complete How to Bed In New EPB Shoes.

How to Bed in new EPB shoes

You need to bed in the EPB shoes either when you have changed the EPB shoes or you have changed the rear discs.

With the Engine running, press the brake pedal fully on and off 3 times.

On the third press, hold the brake pedal down.

With the brake pedal still in the down position, pull the EPB switch upwards 4 times and then downwards 3 times.

This must be completed within 10 seconds.

Your dash display will then show 'Park Brake Bedding Cycle Active' or something similar.

If it hasn't, then release the brake pedal and try again.

You need to ensure that you are on a clear piece of road or land as this procedure needs to be completed 10 times.

Drive at least 19mph and maximum of 29mph and then apply the EPB switch until you stop.

You then need to wait for 60 seconds or drive for 500 meters (to allow the brakes to cool down) before repeating the process.

If you stop the engine or you drive over 30 MPH, the bedding in process will be cancelled.

At the end of the 10th time, the bedding in mode may automatically finish, or you should just drive more than 30mph or cycle the ignition.

Reasons for Parking Brake Failure in a Land Rover

Parking brake failure is a common issue that we see in Land Rovers. Your parking brake may fail to release, or it may make a screeching noise. Our team of master technicians are able to correct your problem and get you back on the road.

Why You Need a Parking Brake

A parking brake, also known as an emergency brake, is an essential part of your vehicle. It’s not only needed when you are parked on a hill; it is also a good practice to use it every time you park your vehicle. There are several reasons that you should always use your parking brake, but the two main reasons are as follows:

  • Provides stability so your vehicle won’t roll away.
  • Using the brake regularly keeps the cables in better working condition so they don’t snap in an emergency situation.

Most Common Causes of Parking Brake Failure

The most common causes of parking brake failure in Land Rovers is due to the Electric Parking Brake Module failure, improper cable adjustment, or from parking brake shoes being corroded, incorrectly adjusted, or worn out.

Electric Parking Brake Module Failure

If your parking brake is making a screeching sound and the parking sensor light is flashing, this is usually a sign that your Electric Parking Brake Module has failed. If you try to drive your vehicle under this circumstance, it can cause damage to the braking system.

It is recommended that you change your rear brake discs, pads, and shoes when you change your Electric Parking Brake Module.

Improper Cable Adjustment

Improper cable adjustment can cause parking brake failure. Having adequate rear brake tension is critical when the parking brake is engaged. The rear brakes are what hold the vehicle in place so it doesn’t roll away. Using your parking brake regularly can help to maintain the proper rear brake tension. If the brake isn’t used frequently, the rear brakes will corrode and wear resulting in unwanted distance. This extra distance doesn’t allow the brakes to get the proper grip that they need to hold the vehicle in place.

Worn Brake Shoes

If your parking brake shoes are worn they will not allow for proper grip. Not having proper grip can cause your vehicle to lean or roll when parked.

Have Your Brakes Serviced

To prevent parking brake failures it is important to stay up on regular maintenance. It’s good practice to have your brakes inspected at every service. Unfortunately, there isn’t a service schedule that works for everyone. It all depends on how much you drive your vehicle and how much you stop. If you do more urban driving you will probably have to replace your brakes quicker and more often than someone that does more rural driving.

It’s important that you pay attention to your brakes. You are used to driving your vehicle and you can tell when things begin to change. Most times, with brakes, you can hear when there is an issue developing. Make sure that you let your mechanic know any changes that you have noticed.

How to replace Rear Brake discs, shoes \u0026 pads on Discovery 3/ Range Rover Sport



Do not rely on the Electric Parking Brake (EPB) to hold the vehicle stationary if the brake warning lamp is illuminated or the EPB warning lamp is flashing. Seek qualified assistance immediately.


The EPB operates on the rear wheels; therefore, secure parking of the vehicle is dependent on being on a hard and stable surface.


Do not rely on the EPB to operate effectively, if the rear wheels have been immersed in mud or water.


If the vehicle is used in severe off-road conditions (e.g., wading, deep mud, etc.), additional maintenance and adjustment of the EPB will be required. Consult a Retailer/Authorized Repairer.

  1. With the ignition switched on, press the brake pedal and press down on the EPB switch. This will release the EPB.

  2. With the vehicle stationary, pull the EPB switch up and release it, to apply the EPB. The Parking brake warning lamp will illuminate to indicate that the EPB is applied. See ELECTRIC PARKING BRAKE (EPB) (RED).

If the EPB is applied while the vehicle is stationary and Drive (D) or Reverse (R) is selected, pressing the accelerator pedal will automatically release the EPB.

The EPB is also automatically released when the gear selector is moved from the Park (P) position.

If the EPB is applied when the vehicle's speed is above 1.8 mph (3 km/h), Caution! Park Brake Applied will be displayed in the Message center, the warning lamp in the Instrument panel will illuminate and a warning chime will sound.

If the EPB is applied while the vehicle is moving, releasing the switch will disengage the EPB. The EPB cannot be applied when the vehicle is moving, if the accelerator pedal is pressed.


If the vehicle is in motion, the EPB should only be used as an emergency brake.


Always apply the EPB when the vehicle is parked.

The Drive-away release feature allows the EPB to release automatically as the vehicle is driven away.

The warning lamp in the Instrument panel will illuminate for a short time if the EPB is applied, when the ignition system reverts to the Convenience mode.

If a fault in the system is detected, Park Brake Fault or Cannot Apply Park Brake will be displayed in the Message center. Seek qualified assistance as soon as possible.

If the battery has been discharged or disconnected, Apply Foot And Park Brake will be displayed in the Message center when the ignition is next switched on. Press the brake pedal and pull the EPB switch up to apply the EPB. This is required to reset the EPB system. The EPB will now function correctly.
