System Control Motor Failure on 156
D'oh! Driving to work today my 156 JTS suddenly started beping away like R2D2 on acid and said "System Control Motor Failure" or words to that effect! The car had trouble accelerating properly, very judderly.
Managed it get to work and call my local Alfa garage. After getting to them it turns out the 3rd coil which connects to one of the spark plugs had failed! Luckily the car is still under warranty so it was replaced without charge! Panic over, but I wonder how these coils can fail?
