147 GTA Selespeed issue
My 2005 GTA Selespeed is causing me much headache and even the Alfa dealer here in Melbourne, Australia is not able to diagnose the problem.
The Selespeed would operate normally each time I start the car from cold and pump operates when I open the door. However, after about 30 minutes of driving after the car has warmed up, the Selespeed will stuck in whatever gear that I am in and will not let me shift up, down or neutral. The car will just stay in the last gear it is in before it fails. But every time after I switched off the car for a prolonged period, it seems to fix itself and all goes back to normal again until it warms up again.
Alfa dealer has tried diagnosed the problem and told me that the Selespeed ecu has returned a fault code to and recommended I replace the Selespeed ecu. I waited more than one month for the part to arrive from Milan which cost me an arm and leg but the problem still can't be fixed. I will be sending the car back to the dealer in Monday but have no confident that they will fix the problem. I don't have another month to spare an am really considering selling the car at a loss as is.. But yet it is too beautiful and special a car to let go..
