another Selespeed hickup...
A few weeks ago I lost my 4th gear, examiner showed no faults, did a re-calibrate, to no avail. 4 days later everything worked faultless again ??!!! yesterday the same happened , its pretty frustating if you change gear and you hear the system clicking to find the 4th and then decides to go to 5.... At home I stopped the engine and with contact on I worked the joystick , it went from 1 to 2 and 3 started clicking and jumped to 5, did this several times and... it worked again OK ! my brother thinks it is something inside the box that every now and then prevents 4th to engage. Any views from the forum members with a Selespeed would be most welcome !
My selespeed has done 120k and I love it, but get a bit worried like flying and a wing falls off !!!
