I had this problem myself once. It ended up being the vacuum line had come loose from the vacuum actuator for the cruise control. Google Cruise Control Vacuum line for Land Rover discovery 2. If you like I can take a pic for you and show you what to look for. Jeez guys, do any of you actually have ANSWERS??
I actually READ your post, so here is an ACTUAL ANSWER! This sounds like a typical bad Crankshaft Position Sensor or CPS failure. And a lot of times your Rover will not put up a error code for it. Easy (relatively) DIY repair. Did it myself on my 2000 LR DII.
Have you solved this yet? If it was the front propeller there are rebuild kits available for it that are way less expensive than going to the stealership..

The lights are Traction Control, Antilock Brakes and Hill Decent Assist.These are collectively known in the Rover world as the "Three Amigos" . They are ALL tied into the ABS Hydraulic System. It means there is a fault somewhere in your ABS system. The problem is it could be as simple as your wheel sensors being bad, to as complicated and expensive as your shuttle valves in your ABS control unit needing rebuilding/replacing. I have yet to see ANY dealership get their diagnosis right on the first try. My recommendation is look into joining an online rover group. The collective experience on many of these sights is priceless and VERY useful.
try this, spray starter fluid in air intake, if it fires briefly you're getting spark. If your truck turns over but will not fire up, then it's most likely your Crank Position Sensor. ~US$60 at autozone (it's a rebranded BOSCH part) and relatively easy to install. Google "land rover crankshaft position sensor" there is a utube vid that shows u what to do. I did it without dropping the exhaust. Fredric
