Title: '12 plate 595 all going pete tong....
Post by: karlb123 on December 09, 2016, 08:37:59 am
2012 car I have owned for 8 months purchased from Rockingham Cars Abarth section. Car has 14000 miles on it more since I picked it up, today the MTA box decided it didn't want to shift above 2nd gear....

has anyone else had issues with the MTA box and gear selection issues?
I am about to prepare paperwork for declaring bankruptcy as this sounds expensive and timed with xmas it will be the straw that breaks both mine and the proverbial camels back :(

Could it be a sync issue, that could be sorted with a reset?

Worth contacting them for a little Xmas spirit :whistle:

Could well be a software issue, as 695C suggests, so easy cheap fix. :thumb:
