147 Speedo/ABS intermittent fault

We have a new 147 1.6 T-Spark delivered January. within a few days intermittently the speedo would not operate and the ABS and Brake (!) warning light would stay on. The fault will usually clear with repeated switching off and back on of the ignition. 3 visits totaling 14 days back with the dealer and a new E.C.U the fault is still evident. Has anyone had any experience of the same? <table style="filter:shadow(color=blue, direction=255,400)">Text</table>

I've had a similar intermitent fault on my 155 lasting, well, quite a while - despite various attempts to trace the fault. About three weeks ago (the last attempt) the diagnostic system used seemed to indicate that everything was OK. And it was, until the next day when the warning light came on again. If they didn't have the odd quirk they wouldn't be Alfas - I keep telling myself while warmly illuminated by that gentle red glow on the dashboard!

That's happened to me once. No speedo, or any other instruments, odometer and trip meter on, but not turning over and warning lights galore. Dealer diagnosed a loose connection in the fuse box under the dash. Hasn't reappeared since.

I had this problem with my car and after many visits to the dealer he said the ABS computer needed to be replaced, after that the car has been running great. you can see what where this ABS computer is in the picture. I made a circle around it. http://www.grund.is/alfa.jpg
