147 Selespeed Gear Change Prob's

Twice recently during hot weather by selespeed gearbox has jumped from 2 to N when changing up.

On the first occasion I was stationary for about 15 minutes with a hot engine.

The second time I was stuck in a traffic jam and stationery for 25 minutes.

As soon as I went to accelerate the gearbox went straight from 2 to N. Then its fine after a short while.

Anybody know wot this could be - I guess its heat related but don't know anymore.

Hi Freind,
I experianced almost the same problem with my car during in very hot weather. It happended to me when inside the car the temp. reached the 55 deg cel.
Mine went from 4th to N. It happened to me twice. Of course after five minutes when the temperature follen to 35 everything was ok.
What I believe is that the electronics of the car are affected during very hot weather.
What i do to protect the car is i try not to park the car directly under the sun. If that happens I leave one window slidly open and i put a special shade in my windshield so to protect the dashboard and readuce the heat coming inside the car.

Thanx for that.

It does happen very often as the weather is rarely hot enough here.

Its very annoying though as you look like a complete dork when the engine over revs
