Took it anyway and will try it. Person who was breaking similar 2001 Alfa 156 1.6 said he had that one in his Alfa and was working fine. Could be possible it can be universal for Fiat/Alfa range? or me being naive
Story is: 3 weeks ago I took my Lady to mechanic because temperature has started to jump in strange way so I prayed - radiator and thermostat. Next day, phone call - accelerator pedal not working and ECU light on. Tried many things, Maf, lambda, wires, connectors, pipes, plugs, throttle position sensor, pedal position sensor, all tricks, computer...but couldn't clear faults and they gave up - computer is too much for them. But they pointed accelerator pedal position sensor as not working. Checked with Fiat brava one but no results.
After 2 weeks waiting angry I rang my breakdown assistance (lucky had it included in my insurance). Bloke came, checked with computer and said - def.: throttle position sensor but was checking pedal body under the dash. also there were about 5 other fauls but he was sure it is throttle position sensor.
Said - buy used throttle position sensor and replace it and should be ok. Took me and car home.
Managed to find used one with 90 days warranty, with friend disconnected old one connected new one , started engine and ...nothing. Engine started but no action, pedal not responding and throttle position sensor not responding and ECU light on. Should be ECU cleared (reset) when connect new one? Without computer we couldn't , we could only see new throttle reaction - well, no action
Is it possible , ECU will keep faults so connected new part was not working?
Well started to think about can of petrol and lighter
but my MRS would do the same with me haha
Now funny thing and hope good sign.
On saturday spoke to nice alfaowner living not far from me. Recommended one garage near to me (where i went for MOT 2 years ago). Went today and guess what....another Alfa 156 was in garge ha ha
Booked for tomorrow morning. Throttle position sensor ready to be checked and accelerator pedal position sensor (my post above) on its way to me (should be tomorrow) . Hope one of those parts will do the job and after over 3 weeks I will come back sailing
Well radiator and thermostat ready as well as soon as pedal will start responding.
Don't even say - it can be something else ha ha
But any help welcome.
Sorry for long story - alfaowner beautiful life!
Thanks in advance for all help and comments.
