Re: 147 Total Electronic Failure
Got my car back today. Body computer was burned. Since it was replaced a couple of months ago that part is still under warranty. Garage told me that the possible explanation could be that when the towing hook was installed there also had to be a relais box fitted. (When I bought the car I took it to that dealer and asked them to check if everything was OK, please also check the towing hook that the other garage had installed, they told me that the towing hook was installed properly).
I use the towing hook only for a rack that carries two bicycles. The extra lights on that rack take extra power/ampére and that has probably caused the failure on the body computer. But they weren't 100% sure that this was the cause.
If Hoygaard is reading this thread: you know a lot of technical details of Alfa's, does the above explanation from the garage make any sense? Thanks in advance.
