Youve probably all heard this type of post a million and one times before but i cant seem to pinpoint a thread where i can post, i apologise first if im in the wrong section !!
first im a new owner of a 147 2.0 selespeed 2004 reg
, ive had it for a couple of months so i wanna get on top of things with your help !
Ive heard of alfadiag, and ive kinda got the message that this software is essential for the selespeeds, AlfaDiag Alfa Romeo Diagnostic Software
, silly question but do i purchase from here??
will someone please post a link to where i can purchase the cable to use the software??
This is where my issues start.... im a bit stumped as to why my factory fitted alarm (i was told it had one at time of purchase) does not work. There are no beeps when i lock the car using the key, but the red led light inside the car does flash. The manual states that the red led light flashing confirms alarm activation. is this correct? Ive tried everything but smash the windows to try and set the alarm off with no luck. Can anyone advise of how i can check the alarm system, or even better fix it, ha !!
The engine oil pressure warning has been displayed constantly on the dash for the past week. Ive triple checked and topped up the engine oil but the warning is still on. Ive enquired about the sensor with a quote to replace it from an alfa dealer for £100 excl VAT. Is this reasonable? can i fix myself? is that even the problem? any advice would be welcome
since the cold snow in the uk, the VDC system failure warning has flashed up atleast 5 seperate times whilst driving. The warning only stays on the dash for a couple of seconds then goes off. Is this serious or is it something to do with the cold weather?
im in the west midlands, the black country to be precise, so if anyone can let me know of a good reliable local garage who deals with alfa's, that would be great.
once again i apologise for the long post but i dont want my motor to go up the ****ter before ive even enjoyed it !!
