147 JTD Warning Lights

Hi 1st time poster here,

I'm new to Alfa ownership, I bought my first one last Wednesday and I'm made up with it!

I managed 6 days of troublefree motoring, what my neighbour said about my street cred and motoring problems increasing in one seems to be true....

On Tuesday, I noticed a strong smell of diesel in the cab, on further inspection I noticed I was leaving trails of diesel behind me wherever I went. On further investigation it appeared that the drainage plug under the fuel pump had come loose, and was spitting diesel out, nice and easy to fix.

Since then whenever I start the engine the dashboard is beeping at me, I get ABS, EBD and ASR system failure lights, just for a couple of seconds. I know these are to do with the barkes and traction control, but is there anyway a sensor has been knocked when the diesel leak was being attended to?

Mines a 147 Lusso 1.9 JTD if it matters

Thanks in advance for any pointers!
