Ti Gauge Failure
After a long wait, I'm finally a part of the Alfa Club!! I bought a 2001 147 Ti yesterday (01/02/2011). It was in perfect condition, until we washed it. They steam cleaned the engine bay and the car went crazy... There were warning lights for ESP and ABS failure, and the handbrake light is permanently on. After driving for a while everything returned to normal.
It started raining on the way home, and it did it again!! All the warning lights were back on. But this time, the Temp Gauge and Rev Counter also stopped working. When I got home I realised the on-board computer wasn't working anymore either.
The Speedometer stopped working this morning after we removed the Tow Bar... So now, the only working Gauge is the Fuel Gauge.
The car's mechanics are fine. Its just the electronics that are giving trouble... Any ideas on how to fix this? My dad is threatening to take the car back, but I'm in love already!! Haha...
