147 1.6 no fault seems the same
Hi to all,
Can't believe I did it, but the misus liked it so here I am in the forums. Lol
Our 147 is now very tempremental. I am not sure wether I have one fault causing others or more faults disguising each other.
Had the car for 2 months all started fine. Suspension probs but that was sorted. But about a month ago started to get the battery voltage low light appear on the dash whist driving but not stay on with the accompanied beeps and other notifications from immob inop to mcs inop ecb inop. But all would clear and the car would not miss a beat. Since then it comes on every turn of the key again with all the others as well inc eng management light.
Now the car has started stalling, looks like when it gets to about 70-80'c and the rev's get anywhere near 2000 it's dies, if carrying speed can be bumped but does nt like it. If the speed drops and I don't catch it, it dies and that's it it will not start for 10 to 15mins. Once it starts again not got long before it happens again.
The car seems to have a great battery as I have used the starter to crack the car out of the road on a few occasions now. Sometimes a fair distance.
I have tried a new battery but as soon as the ignition was on the battery voltage low warning flashed so I kept the old one and the £50 for the new one. Last night I missed the revs so it died on me, so started to crank myself out of the road but the battery lost all power only enough for dash lights. Pushed car to side of road went to lock it but central locking would not work, key in door walk home start drinking.....
Went back this morning again not enough power to open central locking, put key in and car started. I thought I was still drunk from the night before and was halucenating. Again battery voltage low warning but no other. Drove home, started typing.
So things I have tried are-
New battery ( for 5 mins)
Tested battery holds 12.5v
Checked car is charging( charging with everything on at 14+v)
Pluged diag in after trying to start car get loads of codes. Clear codes and wait for car to fail and check then get crank sensor A circuit code
Any help appreciated thanks
Heard lots of people say alfa's have soul, think mines possessed.
