Alfa 147

Tempramental 147 dash lighting.

Hi all.

My beloved 2001 147 2.0TS has developed an annoying fault, strangely sine it's MOT, which it passed first time. Every so often all the dash warning lights illuminateand the dials revert to zero, this includes the speedo, rev counter, fuel and temp gages. No other electrical systems are affected, radio stays on, lights stay constant and there is certainly no loss of power. I have a susspision that somthing happened when it had it's MOT, do they disable the ABS system?

Thanks for any answers given.

Re: Tempramental 147 dash lighting.

I had the same thing, all dials go dead and engine is still running on my peugeot 206 HDI Dturbo (2003 model) and on the info display pannel it started flashing ABS FAILURE and then suddenly everything would be okay again, apperently it was the ABS ecu which was faulty and that was replaced under warranty when the car was only three months old. It could be a similar problem with the Alfa, as both cars have mulitplex wiring systems and use Bosch ABS systems.
