This is my first post since buying my 2k4 147 and boy oh boy am I having fun with the electrics...I'm hoping someone here can point me in the right direction!
Ok, the back story - bought the car about 6 months ago as a replacement for my mk2 mr2 which was expensive and had a hobby of breaking in spectacular fashion. Decided a sensible hatchback was a good idea...until i drove them. So decided that the alfa was the only choice as its full of leather, quick in comparison, looks great and very nice and comfy!
So..bought it, 2 months later the air con stops blowing cold, the heater doesn't heat up any more (the coolant is topped up and coming up to temperature ok), then the rear windscreen wiper goes on at random and will never switch off unless you stop the engine...oh and I've also had to remove the exhaust heat shields as they were bouncing around.
So - as winter nears, these things become bigger problems! I've recently done the ecu/throttle reset.. (just to see what happened) No change to the air con or heating, however the windscreen wiper behaves a little better (now turns itself off when asked, however bizzarely does go on when I'm reversing
I'm presuming its either a selection of fuses or relays for the wiper, but which ones?
As for the air con/heating - a linked problem to the others, or do I start re-gassing and thermostat replacing???
If you've managed to read through all my blethering, thank you and and suggestions would be a great help!
