Been driving my 147 selespeed 2003 for 2 years now....no problems whatsoever until yesterday when i was driving forward and the geer jumped to 5th automatically. i tried to lower it but the gear jumped to neutral and now wouldnt go up to 1 or to R.
After a few minutes around 15. Everything went back to normal. No errors showed on the multidisplay screen.
Can anyone give me a hint on the problem......
thX in advance

Because the Sele' relies manifestly on a good battery supply at all times, as I found out when I got mine.:): It had a virtually brand new battery, but..., one with the incorrect amperage. All sorts of funny tricks were happening, until a new one was fitted, of the correct type/amperage.:):

Check the pump relay, its one of the big black 50a ones in front of the battery (mine was the one on the left but they are sometimes mixed up).

This happened to me and i nearly got stranded, i swapped the relay for another one and the pump came on and after a minute i could select gears.

When i got home i opened up the relay and there was black soot type stuff on the contacts so a scratched it all off with a screwdriver and now its fine.

I can now here the relay clicking on from outside the car and it sounds alot more healthy, the problems not happened since.

I topped the selespeed oil, couldnt really find the pump relay to clean its connectors, the map on the cover dint really help too.
Anyways the gear change seems more healthy and smooth now and the problem hasnt happened since. hopefully it wont ever.
Thanx guys for the tips
