Re: car stuck in 1st gear; cannot move or tow

No sorry, I don't know which fuse they replaced. All it said on the invoice was hydraulic pump fuse blown - replaced.

Might be worth asking them..
Something obviously caused it to Blow..

If it does it again you are stranded once more.. Fuses..should be a simple job for most people.

Re: car stuck in 1st gear; cannot move or tow

@digger58 - they charged USD75 to change the fuse, the fuse was USD6 and they kept the car 4 (!) days to do so. That is the kind of service we get in Barbados.

Re: car stuck in 1st gear; cannot move or tow

@varesecrazy - Will be very difficult to get the information from the dealer but I will try. In the manual I see there is a fuse no 84 (10A) in the engine compartment that is labeled Robotised gearbox control unit and the same fuse is also labeled CNG methane system management solenoid valves. I wonder if this is the one. I am still trying to find one of that size here.

Re: car stuck in 1st gear; cannot move or tow

I had the same issue and replaced a fuse in the engine fuse box. It is the only 30A fuse.

According to the manual this is fuse is driving the solenoids. Once replaced, you hear the that sound once the driver's door is opened (which I guess is the gearbox pump not sure). Fuse cost ~3 from halfords but you can buy them online for far cheaper.

That allowed my fiat grande punto to change gear again and semi-function, but still have the 'check transmission' error which I am currently investigating.

I hope this helps someone. I would have posted a photo, but I am not yet over my 5 post limit!

Hi,
You will have to get the fault code read to see what is going on. Multiecuscan is highly recommended for this. Alternatively you could try battery disconnected for an hour or two and then 3 engine start stop cycles. If it was an intermittent glitch this might clear the warning.
