Help selespeed pump not priming

hi people, im totally new to all this so if i make any errors, let me know!

iv got an alfa 147 2.0 selespeed and the pump isnt priming. initially the pump wouldnt prime when the door opened. system failure came up on the dash. ocassionaly the pump would work, but it would then remain on (till it blew its fuse). i had a diag system plugged in to it and it said pump relay stuck. cleaned all the relays,put them back in, put a new pump in and the fuse isnt blowing and the system failure light has turned off.

but i am having another problem with it now. gears 1 and 5 flash when i am driving and the pump isnt priming when i open the door and i have found a leak under the car (just above the atf resvoir!)

what is going on!? only had the car for 3 weeks. anyone able too help!?

sorry for the long description. thought id let you know the full story.

Try swapping the pump relay for one that 'looks the same', and see if that helps.

On a 147, the pump relay is on its own, between the battery and cylinder head. Square black one

There should be an identical one in the fusebox, that runs the cooling fan (iirc).
