147 Selespeed and VDC gremlins
On a long run to the West Country this week we lost 5th gear (2001 2.0 147 selespeed) The car will select 5th but as soon as the slightest throttle is applied it will jump to neutral. All other gears are fine.
Today in the snow the car displayed the VDC system failure message, then shortly afterwards the radio went off, and heater, then after another 30s interior and exterior lights went off and then the dash stopped working. Stopping at traffic lights the car selected neutral, after selecting 1st and moving off the systems came back to life over a period of 10s or so and no VDC error was displayed . Is this car called Christine or can anyone suggest possible remedies ?
