We deal with Dirichlet boundary value problems for p-Laplacian difference equations depending on a parameter λ. Under some assumptions, we verify the existence of at least three solutions when λ lies in two exactly determined open intervals respectively. Moreover, the norms of these solutions are uniformly bounded in respect to λ belonging to one of the two open intervals.
