Selespeed Failure message again

Anyone help?
Went to SGT to fix the selespeed failure message problem. They found nothing wrong on the diagnostics but suggested the pump which was changed under warranty. The problem is still there, not continuously though, but can come on during driving or when I start the car. Anyone had this problem or any ideas? Any info would be great.

Raian, sorry to say (and lucky for me) but my Selespeed operates perfectly and does so for 5 years..... main culprits can be a weak battery or the selespeed pump,

sounds like the actuator to me. My 147 was in SGT a couple of months ago getting it replaced under warranty.

good luck

Re: Selespeed Failure message again

Mine only appears when battery is discharged or in low charge state. Not a big enough problem to worry me & will replace battery soon, but try the following.

Is the problem more prevalent at low revs?
If you do a low speed run with headlights on, aircon on, HRW on etc is the problem more noted?

If so its possibly battery or charging circuit related rather than gearbox. Much easier & cheaper to fix. If your battery is old that might point to this too.
