Selespeed System Failure - Car wont start
147 2.0 TS Selespeed 2001 model.
I tried to start my car this morning, just to warm it up and clear the frost since I had a buyer coming to look at it.
Unfortunately I got the selespeed system failure warning and the car would not start.
I thought maybe it was just the battery since the car hasn't been moved much of late.
I put my charger on it, but its made no difference.
I've searched all through this forum and although I've found many similar problems, I've found none with the non starting problem.
I've disconnected the battery for half hour with the key in the mar position and the lights on to drain the system. Upon reconnection as soon as the ignition is turned on the system failure warning comes straight on and still the car wont start.
With the ignition on the only gears I can select are 1st 2nd and reverse. I don't know if this is normal or not.
Any help would be much appreciated. If I could just get the car to start I'd be able to get it to a garage to get it on a diagnostics machine.
Thanks for reading.
