Hello

Im having problems with my Selespeed Gearbox on my 156.

It started a few months ago when occasionally the gearbox warning light would flash on the dashboard. This happened whilst driving and would only last for a few seconds. During the time it flashed I could not change gear.

It has gradually got worse and now the light flashes for a couple of minutes when I start the engine. I can not engage any gear before it stops flashing. When I start driving it is only a matter of minutes before the warning light starts flashing again. It then flashes randomly during the journey during which time I can not change gear.

The oil level appears fine and there seems to be no pattern for the fault starting. The gear selector info on the dashboard does not flash whilst the warning light is flashing.

Any help would be gratefully received.

Many Thanks

It would point to the pump not running.
So any of:
failing pump
failing pump relay
poor earth from the pump
wiring fault to/from the pump

as David says , but if the pump runs and still the problem exists it may be the accumulator leaking i.e.
not enough pressure (<45 bar) Alfadiag will tell you in a second whats wrong.

147 selespeed problems

same thing i have just had, i have had my selespeed pump replaced in Jan 09 fine until last week Selespeed warning light will come on any time for a few minutes then go away but i can still change gears.
atfer a week i could not change gears.

Problem caused: Faulty Selespeed Relay and faulty brake light switch, has now been replaced working now

selespeed replay should cost no more than £15 and brake light switch no than £15 Selespeed pump is alot more in the 300 priced bracket and thats not including VAT + there is labour.
