Just bought my first Alfa, a 156 2.4 JTD 2001.
Love it already but have also already run into a couple of snags
The interior heater fan, AC, stereo and interior main and rear lights are now not working.
The heater, fan and AC were all definately working when I bought the car on Sunday as I tested them at purchase and then used on way home. Main interior light was also working, although one of the two bulbs appeared to be blown.
The stereo I don't know about and is the only connection I can make to all the items stopping working. When I bought the car the previous owner told me he had lost the face off for the stereo, i wasn't to bothered as I intended to fit a bluetooth one anyway. So I carefully took the faceless stereo out yesterday in preparation for a new one en route. Since then all of the above items have stopped working!
I've looked at every fuse (drivers side,glovebox and near battery in engine bay) all appear to be fine.
I put a tester on the power supply leads for the stereo and interior light and it didn't seem to show any power getting to the units. I tried the brand new stereo but it wouldn't turn on at all (could be faulty, but I'm sceptical of this).
I can live without a stereo but lights are handy and a heater is a must, if only to clear foggy screen!
My knowledge dosn't extend beyond the simple when it comes to these matters so I would really appreciate it if anyone has any ideas or similar experiences please....
