Re: Selespeed Failure
Had my Alfa for about 3 months now, first Alfa, great Car! Been on this site for the past 2 months, very insightful.
Recently on the weekend I had the computer flash - Selespeed System Failure, car lost power and came to a halt. Almost had a heart attack when it happened thinking it was going to cost an arm and a leg to fix. Tried to kick it over, no luck. Ended up looking around this forum and some other places. Thought i'd try some things.
Turns out my fuel meter isn't acurate, it was low but not that low, anyway, I got a friend to pick me up drove to the petrol station put some fuel in a container and drove back to the car to put it in. Turned the key and it worked.
Seems the software doesn't indicate if you are actually empty but instead reports a Selespeed System Failure. Kind of makes sense if you have no fuel and can't engage the gears. But still, they could at least indicate that it was a fuel issue.
Thought I'd throw my info in there, as some of you may have had that happen rather than thinking you need to spend $$$$$ to fix a problem that really isn't the problem.
