Hello my names sara and i have an alfa Romeo 156 Selespeed and would really love some

i have an alfa romeo 156 selespeed, i went from a drive up the road and when i came to a stop at an intersection ot was stuck in second gear, i could only get it into R.
i turned the car off and it would not start again.
called RAA he was there putting some information into his computer and it came back with a blown power windows fuse can stop the car from starting.
couldn't find the fuse, but had a feeling to try and start the car.. it started i got it home.
but now it will not start at all
can anyone lead me in any direction of where to start looking or what the problem may be?
any ideas on whay the problem could be?

Hi, and welcome to the forum. I would suggest posting this again in the Technical 147/156 forum where it will be viewed quicker, and hopefully get the problem resolved for you.

This IS the 156/147 tech forum! ??

Is the gearbox in neutral when you try and start it or still in gear?

When you open the drivers door do you hear a whirring sound coming from the Selespeed pump?

Ok, If the pump is working get your partner to try the following

1/ Turn the key to MAR (its the key position just before start and all the dash lights come on) put foot on the brake and see if he can get the gearbox to shift into neutral. If it does see then if it will go through all the gears. If it doesn't do any of these, while he has foot on brake, make sure the brake lights come on.

If the pump is whirring and the Selespeed fluid tank is at the correct level with the key turned to MAR, with your foot on the brake you should have enough pressure to select gears and put it into Neutral. The reason I ask about the brake lights is that there is a switch on the Brake pedal. The computer must see that you have your foot on the brake to start the car and to put it into gear, if the switch is faulty the car won't start, if the brake lights don't come on with the key turned to MAR and foot on the pedal it is definitely faulty. Problem is if the brake lights do come one, the switch could still be faulty, but lets try what I have written above first and go from there.

May I suggest we carry out all further correspondence on your "Car got stuck in gear" posting from now on to avoid confusion.

Yes you need foot on the brake to select Neutral/1st/Rev, but if the gearbox is in Neutral and the ECU is aware of it being in Neutral, then it will start without your foot on the brake.
It is however a good procedure if you always manually select Neutral before trying to start.

When you say it doesn't start, does it turn over but not fire or not turn over at all?
