Land Rover Discovery Owners & Service Manuals

Land Rover Discovery: Using the progress control system

The Progress control button is located on the centre console.

Note: The driver's seat belt must be buckled and all of the doors must be completely closed to enable the feature.

Press and release the button, to enable the Progress control system. The button's LED lamp will illuminate, and a warning lamp will also illuminate in the Instrument panel to confirm.

Press and release the Progress control button again to disable the system. The button's LED lamp and the Progress control warning lamp will extinguish to confirm.

When the ignition is switched off, the Progress control system will be disabled.

When enabled while the vehicle is stationary, the Progress control system will default to a descent control mode. The descent control mode should be used in the event that the vehicle is to make a descent:

  • Select the required position for the rotary gear selector.

Note: Any gear selector position can be used, including Neutral (N).

  • Release the Electric Parking Brake (EPB) or the brake pedal, to allow gravity to make the vehicle progress, up to the minimum feature speed of 1.8 km/h (1.1 mph).
  • Progress control will hold this speed, until the system detects the use of the accelerator pedal, brake pedal, or the Cruise control SET+ button on the steering wheel.

Note: Descent control mode will be resumed after using the accelerator pedal, or the brake pedal.

Note: Progress control will change to a full function mode, when it detects the use of the Cruise control SET+ button on the steering wheel.

Full function mode should be used for all other manoeuvres that require the use of Progress control, for example, while making an ascent, or pulling away on level ground, etc.

Note: Full function mode will not operate with the gear selector in the Neutral (N) position. In this event a message will appear in the Message centre.

Note: Press and hold the brake pedal, while using the SET+ button when the vehicle is stationary.

The Progress control system can also be enabled by pressing and releasing the button while the vehicle is moving, without the need to stop or apply the brake pedal.

The current vehicle speed will then be used as the set speed and the Progress control system will then default to the full function mode.

Note: If the vehicle's brakes are firmly applied, during the operation of Progress control, the system will exit the full function mode and will then enter into the descent control mode.

Note: Light and gentle application of the brake pedal, during the operation of Progress control, will lower the target vehicle speed. When the brake pedal is fully released, the Progress control system will maintain the speed at which the brake pedal was released.

Note: The driver can override the Progress control system at any time, with the use of the brake pedal or the accelerator pedal.

Note: If the vehicle's speed exceeds 30 km/h (18.6 mph), the Progress control system will be suspended, and the system will then go into a standby mode, until the vehicle's speed is less than 30 km/h (18.6 mph).

Note: If the vehicle's speed exceeds 80 km/h (50 mph), the Progress control system will be disabled. If required, the system will have to be switched on again, via the Progress control button.

The driver must maintain full control of the steering and brakes at all times.

When the Progress control system is enabled and the brake pedal is fully released, the system will help to provide controlled and progressive assistance for the vehicle to;

  • Pull-away from stationary in a forward or reverse direction on level ground, and uphill or downhill.
  • Perform low speed manoeuvring in a forward or reverse direction.
  • Make progress and maintain a selected target (set) speed, up to a maximum of 30 km/h (18.6 mph).

In the event that the vehicle's brake temperatures exceed the normal operating limits, a warning message will be displayed in the Message centre stating that the system will be temporarily unavailable. The Progress control system will then fade-out and become temporarily inactive. Once the brakes have returned to the normal operating temperatures, the message will extinguish and the Progress control system will resume normal operation, if still required.

Do not attempt a steep descent if the Progress control system is not enabled or the warning message is displayed.
