I've got a beautiful Alfa 156 '99 sedan and it had been a treat until recently when it decided to trouble me with several problems.
1. The "bulb/globe fused" indicator flashes intermittently when driving and for no damn reason. I've checked and rechecked all the lights/indicators and they all work fine. However, this flashing stops if I use an electrical devices (i.e. turn on park lights, open/close windows). I've checked battery terminals, they are fine!!!
2. When the engine's warm, "Injection System Malfunction" indicator comes on and engine stops and it won't start!!! I've noticed that this happens on warm australian summer days more often. Slow speed manuvouring does this more often. After 5-10 mins, the car starts, and runs like a dream :S
3. The gears wouldn't engage properly. This happened when the car is in neutral and a gear is selected. Indicator would display the current gear, but the car won't move when accelerated as usual. However it would start moving when RPM reaches 6000+. But a simple bettery reset fixed this and I have a feeling this is related to the issue #1. As i said the issue# 1 can be avoided by having park lights on while being driven, it also made sure this problem with gears never happened again as I always drive with lights on now
Could someone please please please help me with these isssues :'(
Thanks in advance,
