New to the forum and hopefully going to be a new alfa owner tomorrow as well!!
Its a 55 plate 1.9 JTDm with 65k on the clock, last service 59k.
I went to see a GT, low mileage FSH, during the week however it failed to start when I jumped in it. It was still on the forecourt so i wasn't getting to drive the beast however I wanted to start it up regardless.
When i turned the key i got this:
Alfa GT Problem? - YouTube
There were 3 issues:
- Glow pug
- Red airbag light
- flashing yellow airbag light
Im not terribly worried about the red airbag light, this is normally a cable under one of the seats with a loose connection?
I wasnt sure about the yellow flashing light? Is that related to the same problem as the red airbag light?
and as for the glow plug error the dealer assured me this was due to flat battery? If i bought the car I'd be placing the glow plugs anyway, I was just wondering if anyone knew if this was a prerequisite error for something catastrophic EGR valve or anything along those lines?
I like the look of the GT and (from reading the forum) have insisted the dealer replace the cam belt, water pump and tensioner.
Is there anything else I should be looking for? I've heard the rear susension can go after a while? Worn bushes and trailing arms ect
Any thoughts from some alfa wizards would be most welcomed!!
