Re: Selespeed problems in 2001 156
My selespeed has gone again!!! lastnite, it just cut out, like before, went to a roundabout, after racing the car in semi-automatic, swtiched to city mode and got a flashy gear light.
Mass panic set in, knowing that if i slowed down below second gear the car would throw me into neutreal. so i managed to take a few roundabouts in 5th and get myself home..
Started car again later, and it seemed all ok... but... after selecting just 2 gears.. reverse, then city mode. the car flashed up warnings again.. only this time i dont have any gears. full stop..
AA patrol put it on the computer and no faults detected.
i have had this problem before, left the car 3 days and it came back to life. and has worked for 4 months since.
I have taken the battery off for over 30 mins, i have checked connections on selespeed ecu. i have pushed and pulled wires.. of which 1 did flash the gear N, on the display??... and beeped at me.
I no longer have a hydrolic pump when i open the door... not good i fear.
Trying car tonight at around 8pm. if it doesnt work the AA are towing it to Ogaros in camborne (cornwall) - hopefully the wizards there might be able to fix it. - however im pennyless from my last £1000 on alfa bits :'( lol.
