I'm having problems with the electrics of my car and it seem it has not gone away. Following from this thread http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/alfa-...-at-70mph.html
As advised I changed the battery about 2weeks ago to another Bosch S5 battery.
This morning ,leaving the driveway I had a VDC failure and thought here we go again but I was thinking I was probably light on my right foot. After dropping my wife to the station,parked in one side with the engine running I had my dip light on,decided put the air con then I notice the dash dimming
. I tried again with the hazards on too and did it again.
Got home and just got hold of FES and elm327 interface recently so I thought I will see of there was anything from the VDC failure,no errors showing on FES. I did the test again,hazard, air con,radio on and windows up and down but no dimming
but I have turn off the engine for about 5 mins before restarting this test.
I was advice to check earth connection so does anyone know how many earth points there are on a 147 and where they are located? The one I can see is next to the battery on the bodywork.
How do I check the alternator and alternator belt,are there any particular symptoms to hear or to look for and can the FES pick it up any problem?
Other than the above is there anything I can check or to looks for?
Any advice or suggestion will be great
