selespeed warning light

the gerabox warning light on my 156 selespeed stays on too long when the car is cold.consequently no gear can be engaged until it goes out. is this the beginning of the end of the actuator or something less ominous? it doesn't happen once the car haswarmed up.

Re: selespeed warning light

Welcome to AO Herb

A few weeks ago I started my 147 GTA Selespeed from cold, and when I tried to select 1st (or any other) gear I got the "Selespeed System Failure" warning message, and the car was genuinely disabled. I shut down and re-started a few times and eventually the selespeed system came on line and I was able to move off normally.The problem has not recurred and I put it down to typical Italian electrical glitches.

I dont think you have a major problem but I would suggest that you consult your local dealer.

Change gear oil, and selespeed oil, and make sure all the air is out of the system.
