Alfa 156 2.0 litre Starting problems Please Help
This is my first post here , hopefully someone will be able to help us.
We have recently changed the head gasket on a 156 t-spark that has been sat for the last 6 months without any attention.
We have put everything back together and the car turns over as it should. The only problem is the code light remains illimunated in the MAR position , where as the manual suggests that the light should only stay illuminated for a second or so. We have tried everything to get rid of this light, but nothing we try works, we have disconnected the box under the steering wheel (as suggested in another post) this didn't work.
We have the 5 digit key code that came with the car, we have tried following the procedure in the manual to start the car with this, but this also fails, it doesn't even start the procedure (we hold the accelerator down for ages and the so called injection system light does not appear)
can anyone help, the only other thing is that the cam positioning sensor looks a bit broken, not sure if this is anything to do with it, i was assuming that the car would run in limp mode if this sensor was faulty.
Any help would be most appreciated.
