    So after coming back from Italy on a 4 hour drive, everything was fine with my F430 spider. The next day the gearbox and engine light came on and the battery sounded weak. I switched the battery and then went for a drive and the cars run smoothly but still have the same issues. I guess this is the F1 or Gearbox Sensor ?

    By any chance, did you hook up an OBDII reader and get a p2794? If so, did you get an advanced reader and narrow it down to a p1741? I ask because that's where I'm at with the same issue. As a note, if you really need to drive the car, such as to the shop, you can get above second gear by reaching a high speed in second, pulling both paddles to reach neutral, then pull the "Up" paddle and it will select 3, 4, 5, or 6 gear.

    Seems my F430 Spider problem is my F1 Potentiometer part number 248095, any one else had this ?
