Selespeed 147 no reverse or downshift with lever
Hi fellow Alfa owners! This will be my first post here on alfaowners!
Fist and foremost, I have spent the last 6 hours trying to find someone with the same problem as I have, that being that all of a sudden today I couldnt downshift or reverse with the lever on my 147 2002 2.0ts selespeed, the paddleshifters work just fine with down and upshifts but the gear lever can only do upshifts and neutral.
Plugged my elm cable which gave me the following fault codes on the selespeed: P1747 and P1746.
I bought the car about two weeks ago and has worked just fine since, except from the gearbox beeing a little choppy when cold, anyway I topped the selespeed fluid last week with selenia tutela car cs speed since it was a little below max, this was done by a guy who used to work for alfa when they raced in the swedish touring car chapionship so hopefully he knew what he was doing, he even did some kind of reset or calibration to the gearbox whem we finished. I didnt actually notice any difference at all with the calibration and topping up the fluid the car remained choppy at cold starts.
Hopefully someone out there has heard of this prob before and can tell me something. The nearest alfa dealerand specialist is avout 120 miles from where I live.
I did actually find similar problems but none of them was the same as mine, i tried putting the car on the mar mode and all upshift work just fine all the way up to fifth and even when driving but the lever refuses to to respond to downshifts and reverse...
