147 will not start but turns over. "dimmed computer display".
I'm relatively new to the site. Very informative site I must say! I have a 2002 Alfa Romeo 147 1.6TS 5 door. I've been having a problem starting my car, it turns over but doesn't start. When turning the key to ignition the trip computer display is dimmed as well as the mileage display and no electronics work: windows, lights nothing. I've already replaced the batery. It might be the alternator? But how does it turn over every time? I've read that it can be the crank sensor on this forum. I'm just not sure if I have the same symptoms as the other, I don't get the "management/computer/engine failed" warning. I actually almost get no warnings. Apart from a rear fog light that's dead but never is and it keeps on telling me the amount of km's to go for a service.
Your help will be highly appreciated!
