Alfa 147 Warning Lights

I have an Alfa 147 which has a warning light of an orange cirle with a triangle and exclamation mark which keeps coming on when accelerating in 5th gear and the car keeps spluttering when you accelerate but only in 5th. It's fine through the gears very smooth and repsonsive but in 5th it almosts conks out when accelerating. Anybody know what this could be?

Re: Alfa 147 Warning Lights

I reckon the warning light is the VDC - Vehicle Dynamics Control.
Do a search on the forum for VDC and you will find loads of replies.
First thing is to check how old your battery is as it seems to be the main cause of VDC failure.
If the battery is recent (within the last 6 months or so) then it is likely to be a failure of one of many sensors that detect the motion and positioning of the car whilst travelling

Hi there. I have this problem too (and also a rear fog light warning crops up occasionally). Is there an easy way to tell if the battery needs replacing? I haven't had the car long and haven't got much in the way of history...
