2001 Alfa 147 Issues
I've recently purchased an 2001 Alfa 147 Twin Spark 2.0. However, I naively purchased trustingly from a gentleman who assured me that the airbag light was on only because of the clock spring.
Now, the steering wheel controls and horn do not work. The airbag light is on. I have taken it to an Alfa specialist and after plugging it in to the computer, they have informed me that the car has been in a minor accident. Although no airbags have been deployed.
They believe the main control panel needs replacing but they cannot give me a definitive answer on whether it will 1. fix the airbag light, or 2. fix the horn and steering controls.
I must admit, I'm not the most mechanically educated person, but this is a last ditch effort as I'm confused about what it may actually need. And the fact that the Alfa specialist cannot tell me causes me concern.
If anyone can offer any advice from their previous experience and knowledge I would be very grateful indeed.
