I had the same thing happen a few weeks ago, change fuse 17 and no problems since. I think it was a problem with my trailer wiring as I was towing my empty trailer at the time.

I replaced the fuse since and has not popped Im not sure that my brake switch has ever been changed so as a precaution it might be a good idea to change it, my ABS pump also did something funny and decided only to start running about 2 min into my drive my heart almost stopped as I thought it had burnt out again

I would be changing that ABS pump relay, not worth the hassles of another ABS pump failing
I now have 9 useless ABS pumps in my collection, its now time to start investigating the fessabilty of overhauling them top to bottom.....just waiting for final word on ABS pump pressure switch supply

VIper yes I am in the process of ordering another one its not "lekker" driving around listening to the pump the whole time just in case the relay sticks and the pump continues to run

Hi

The new type of brake switch requires a small wire harness to connect up in the older cars. I had two of this new type of switches failing on me within couple of months after fitting. The first one was replaced under warranty by LR dealer, when it failed again, my mechanic (independent) changed it for a used unit that is still going strong at the moment. I ordered a new replacement of the old type on line from ebay uk.

Fitting the new type of switch was straight forward without any adjustments to be done. Just pop it in place of the old unit.

Regards

Jos
