Engine off at 1st gear - 147


( 147, 2002, Selespeed, 70000km done, had it for about 3 month now, was driving in city mode)

From stationary at the roundabouts, I was beginning to move and it was showing Selespped system failure followed by Motor control system failure then struggled to maintain its rpm (it was around 2000 then it dropped down to 500) and then engine was completely off after few seconds.

Restart the engine - all seems ok in Nuetral, sounds ok, can rev up without any problem.
on the 1st gear, dropped rpm to below 500 then off again.

On MAR, can shift gear from 1 to 5th - no problem.
Went 1st gear, dead again.

Waited about 2 mins, started again, still showing System failures but this time it operated normally, manage to drove 3Km to my home.

(I was lucky there was no one at the roundabout as it was late night)

Hope this in not something serious/costing problem.

Anyone had similar problem? or help/advise please?

Thank you.
