Help Alfa Romeo 156 Twinspark 2.0lt 16V .

Hello All Alfa Owners ,

I have just recently purchased a secondhand Alfa 156 Sportswagon Twinspark 2.0lt 16V ( 2001 ) model , but have a few issues with the vehicle .

1) Warning Light comes on the Dashboard and the symbol looks like a little orange PAS ( Power Steering Pump ) which remain on while driving .
2) Another warning light that remains on is a little man in a round circle with a Safetybelt around it,s body . This also remains on even if ALL the safetybelts are plugged in when driving .
3) Radiator Fan switch comes on frequently more often than normal , even when the vehicle is cold , still comes on and off frequently .

Guys now the big question is does anybody out there know what the nature of the problems could be on these 3 questions , if so PLEASE advise what the problems could be .

All Alfa Owners

for 1. do you have any issues with your power steering? does it make any sounds when you turn the wheel lock to lock?
for the rest you might want to look into alfadiag. it might help

Hi Tal54, I think item 3 (cooling fan coming on frequently). I think this is likely to be the fans coming on to cool the compressor for the air con. Mine does the same whenever the air con is in use and this is quite normal.
