    No one reset the service light when it was serviced.

    it was re-set when serviced six months ago. when due for service spanners comes up it does not have 'consult workshop' warning next to it, just a countdown in days to service date. It also has constant flashing gear change number now.

    There used to be a problem with gear selection on early 451.
    This was caused by friction on the clutch splined shaft causing timeouts in the software.
    In the beginning, a clutch replacement was the fix for this.
    Smart then made a software fix consisting of extending timeout counts and adding retries to the clutch operations.
    This solved most of the problems; on my 451 all symptoms disappeared.
    I was informed by the time that if the problem ever got worse, then a proper warning would be issued.
    I believe that this is what you are experiensing with your car.
