156 Selespeed Problem Yet Again
I am a new member. For some reason i just love alfa's from a Alfa sud and a 75. But then i got company cars and went down the 3 series route!. So then i got old (35) became a contractor so needed to get my own car. I got fed up with the euroboxes and saw a 2001 (y) alfa 156 sportswagon. leather big alloys electric windows that worked, my wife warned me but i had my dream.
Now the reality!
The selespeed warning light for no reason every now and then comes on and you can only select gears 1,2,N and reverse Then if you leave it for 1hr its fine.
I have taken it to my local main dealer with the problem but by the time they work on it its gone they drive it around for 4 days and it doesnt rear its head. I get it back rack up 400 miles then it goes again.
The car has done 50,000miles on a Y plate
It is really begining to annoy me and its unreliability may mean i have to px for a people carrier!!!
Please help, do i need new selespeed software, do i need new engine management software, is it mechanical
I dont want to lose this car an alfa with windows that work dont let this selespeed light become the route to people carrier hell!
