To start I would like to say thank you to everybody on the forum who has helped, it is genuinely appreciated.
I followed advice and I took the car to an alfa garage. They tried and couldn't shift the code, they then knew the fault was with the wiring. They soon tracked down the broken wire and repaired it. I drove the car for a short while before noticing the next issue. There is a violent shimmy throughout the car but there is no vibration felt in through steering wheel . It seems to eminate from the front passenger side and move throughout the car. the issue gets worse the faster you go but completely stops if the car is taken out of gear whilst traveling. My guess is that the problem is driveshaft or CV joint related. Any other ideas or advice would again be greatly appreciated.
