Fiat 500 duologic 5 years old. Often will not go into gear

This answer was rated:

hi, fiat 500 duologic 5 years old. Often will not go into gear at all or jumps out of gear and sometimes goes just into 2nd and stays there.
Any thoughts


something of an odd tip but the Automatic box's work with the Rear Brake lights

So try giveing the rear light clusters pins a good clean with some abrasive paper and spray them with a contact cleaner - and spray the plug too

If that doesn't help then its a case of checking the gearbox oil level, performing a clutch point retrain ( fiat software required for this) , try cleaning the sensors and a cpu reset
