just a quick question. When i open the door on a 51 plate 147 selespeed and the pump dont prime. The interior light comes so could it be pump failure as it is stuck in 1st gear and alfadiag cant put it in N. apart from the pump what else could it possibly be?

i canged the relay and still nothing happened. I looked in the resivoir and that was full to the top. Alfadiag showed pressure of only 0.67. Is there any other way to confirm the accumulator is knackered.

If the pump isn't running, the fault is more likely to be the pump...

The accumulator only stores pressure, it doesn't create it! It needs the pump for that.

What you an do is lift off the cover around the selespeed reservoir and then have someone open the door whilst you gently tap the pumpbody with a long wieghty stick, that should make the pump start, but it could be time for a new one, or time for new brushes at least.
