selespeed probs only 1st & 2nd gear

Hi new to this site and would really appreciate some help as keep being told different conflicting reasons for problem.

I have a 156 2ltr selespeed. Problems being while driving i only have 1st and 2nd gear will not change to 3rd. Also no speedo, no clock, no fuel or temp guage no power going through these they are all dead. It was running fun with no problems then this suddenly happened. I have checked all fuses but have been told that there is one at the back of the speedo housing but cannot find it.

Has anyone got any suggestions or knowledge on this?

You will be limited to 1st and 2nd if the gearbox speed sensor is dead/not connected. Probably for a load of other reasons as well...

Sounds like you've got a bigger electrical problem though...have you checked the semi-hidden fuses above the main fuse box and the ones in the engine bay?
