Another Selespeed probby! 2000.156.TS
I've had a search but can't find the problem I have!!
Potted history..Bought the car at Christmas. Had Selespeed problems. New pump sorted it. A couple of months later, a different selespeed problem that was fixed after a few hours with a multimeter which resulted in me swapping the selespeed pump relay for the air con one. It fixed the selespeed but gave me intermittent Aircon!!
After a brisk scoot the other day, I noticed the gear indicator number flashing in 2nd. I only noticed it once and the selespeed warning lamp never illuminated.
The following day, as I changed into third, the car found neutral. The indicator suggested I was still in 2nd. I managed to coast into a safe place. The car still indicated 2nd when I was stopped. I turned the ignition off and on and the car indicated neutral and wouldn't select any gears. Then the selespeed light came on!
I had to leave the car and get a lift home to use the other car as I was in a rush to be somewhere. I returned to the car the following day and the car started and the selespeed lamp was flashing. I could select 1st, 2nd and reverse but the numbers were flashing. I drove home in 2nd. Twice the selespeed lamp went out and I was able to get 3rd!
I've just been to the car now and it refuses to start. I can select 1st, 2nd and rev stationary.
Alfa Diag has no recorded faults.
The fluid level is OK.
The pump doesn't seem to run when I first opened the door (although I very rarely hear it anyway!)but there must be pressure, otherwise I wouldn't be getting the three gears.
The car is seriously close to getting a Swan Vesta conversion.........
Any help or suggestions will be gladly considered!!
