Selespeed - What a difference!
After the month or so earlier in the year messing around (well that's what I call working on my car!!) getting my Selespeed running again after the gearbox lost itself I thought OH no not again when it would only select 2nd & 4th
A bit more messing around did not improve the situation, normally it's fluid loss that has caused this. I therefore reverted to the font of all knowledge, the forum and those on it. After trawling through the various threads I came to the opinion it could be the battery, even though it had shown no signs of failing.
I charged it overnight but found that it was still drawing an amp or so in the morning which made me think it's U/S. Disconnected charger and low and behold all gears back, ran it round the block and all seemed fine
Go out 2 hours later and only 2nd and 4th again.
Decided to bite the bullet and get a new battery and low and behold straight away all gears back and no problems at all
Now all I have to do is work out why it is sluggish low down and I will be a happy bunny!!!!
Life would be complete if Alfa made Motorcycles as well
