Alfa 147 Selespeed system failure

Hi guys,

I hope someone can give me some advice.
I have a y reg 147 selespeed.

Recently I have been having problems with the selespeed system.
It seems to be in the mornings when the car is cold.
I have also noticed that it fails when breaking as I hit second gear.

This morning, I had a near miss. The selespeed system failed as I was approaching a roundabout. The car wouldn't change out of second gear, the brakes failed and the steering failed.
I just managed to stop!!
I had to turn the engine off. Once I turned the engine back on it was fine.
The chap at the garage next door is going to take a look, however I just wondered if anyone had encountered this before.

I have had a quick search on here and have found a few threads but couldn't see anything that matched my issue.

Can anyone help me please?

Check the battery terminals, and get ECUs read for a start. It may be a failling relay is nothing concrete comes up.
