I'm just seeking technical some advice regarding my Alfa 147. A few weeks ago, the computer started to indicate that my car has a 'Selespeed system failure', whilst beeping vigorously once every few minutes. It seems to be beeping from the dash, as well as the speedometer area as well. Since the error, I've noticed when driving in manual, the gearbox will automatically shift down to neutral from time to time, which is quite unsafe for the motor obviously. Hence, I stopped driving it, and took it in for a major service. The mechanics had a look, and said that there wasn't anything that they could do about it, as it was something Alfa Romeo had to take care of.
I'm just curious however, these error messages from computers can be very sneaky. Is this a serious error that Alfa need to sort out? Or can the error message be removed on its own? I didn't seem to have any gearbox issues until the error came up, and I believe the error message itself could be triggering the automatic shift down to neutral.
The community here is brilliant, so I trust that together we'd be able to work this out
Ps, I'm in the Adelaide area, Australia; if anyone is in the area and knows of any repairers I may need to go to, please let me know!
