Help 156 Selespeed stuck in 3rd gear.....now what?

Hello chaps,......any clues on the mysteries of Selespeed?

A friend has bought one which had a fluid leak at the actuator,in the process of fixing this he removed the battery and its tray.......upon refitting the battery the thing shifted as far as third gear and stuck fast....

After trying ECU resets and checking solenoids etc he's a bit stumped......the battery is fully charged and the car is has the earlier button type shifters if that makes any difference....?

Any help appreciated........I told him to stick to a proper manual box but the "flash" factor of the Selespeed overwhelmed the daft bugger
