Selespeed system failure!!
Some help needed gents, with my 147 Selespeed. 51 plate with a touch over 30,000 miles on the clock.
I'm about to give the car to the dealer to check out the Selespeed System Failure i'm not regularly getting. It used to happen once in a blue moon but has become all too regular over this weekend.
It happens everytime i put it into reverse, and when i go into 5th. the 5th gear problem only happens if i am driving gently (ie, not booting it and using 5th at 30-40mph). If i accelerate with a little more aggression it doesn't happen. The message is cleared if i drop back down to 4th. but will happen again if i go straight to 5th. By the way the reverse message disappears as soon as the car starts moving.
I've done a search of the forums here, and it seems there could be a few reasons, loose wiring, ecu needs resetting, software update, actuator??? just wondered if anyone had the same symptons as me or any advice in general. Might help when i speak to the garage. I'll be taking it too SGT in Taplow, from my experiences (servicing only) with them so far they seem to be pretty good
All fluid levels are OK by the way.
For some reason i'm not panicking yet, mainly because its still under warranty. fingers crossed it's not a big job!
Thanks in advance
