Sillyspeed prob with reverse/1st
The co-pilot's 147 2.0 Sillyspeed is throwing a strop on a more frequent basis. I've read the main thread, and searched the forum ahead of this post.....
The issue seems to happen more on hot days, not necessarily when the engine/trans is hot after a run as it will usually happen when the car has been sat for hours. The car is almost always driven in 'manual mode' with gear switching done through the stick rather than paddles.
What seems to happen is that when switching from 1st into/out of reverse the system chucks a "selespeed system failure and puts you into City mode". You can select reverse and all seems okay, but you then remain in City mode. Moving to manual throws the same msg. If you drive off in City mode the car will select 2nd and then go back into manual mode, all seems okay!
There are variations on this model, but the problem only tends to occur when parking/low speed manoeuvring. Thus far it has only once dropped into Neutral from a higher gear (in 4th).
We have had a code read which indicated errors on 2nd & 3rd levers?
From reading the forum I tend to think it may be an accumulator problem, but would appreciate other's opinions.
