Re: help if you can-advise needed on 147
These cd players are always playing up, mine skips every time it goes over a bump.
Not sure if this will help, its possible you stereo unit maybe un-earthing itself and causing it to come on and go off randomly. To check it you'll have to take out the stereo, there is also a fuse at the rear that could be a cause as well.
To take out the stereo Alfa recommends a special tool to get the cd player from its casing, but i'm sure there are other ways of doing this, just be careful not to cause any damage. The instructions are to push the tool in until you hear a release clicking sound, then you should be able to pull the stereo forward.
Like doing anything technical on an Alfa expect a bit of swearing during the process!
