Dropping To Neutral.
I have a 2007 Alfa 147 with Selespeed transmission. Has done 60,000km, and have had it for 12 months.
From the start, and to this point, the only fault code/error I have received, is a BRAKE PEDAL SWITCH fault, which I cleared, and would return.
A few days ago, when stopped at a set of lights, the box dropped into neutral. Problem was, I couldn't get it to push back into first. I turned the vehicle off for 60 seconds, back on, and was able to engage first gear. Would get to a set of lights, and the same thing would happen back to neutral, and stranded. All other gears operate correctly.
Also note that when this occured, I received a RIGHT FRONT LIGHT FAILURE on the dashboard.
Am just wanting to know whether, in your opinions, is this a transmission problem, or is this indeed a problem with the Brake Pedal Switch? Can a problem with the Brake Pedal Switch make the transmission play up in the manner it did, or is the Brake Pedal Switch just causing the RIGHT FRONT LIGHT FAILURE, and I have a separate problem with the transmission?
