Alfa 147

Multiple probs on 147


I have bought an alfa 147 at a cut down price due to a few faults.

No Windows Work (no rear windows)
When pressing on the drivers unit there is nothing, no relay, no motor noise, just dead!

Radio does not work

Rear Wiper does not work
Currently half way up the back window

Boot button not working

As the speedometer was initially flashing I was guessing that a proxy-alignment was needed as a gentle pull on the drivers window switch pulled it out and it appeared to be a replacement part from the scrappers.

Done a proxy alignment after it was required however all the faults still exist.

If I am performing a CAN status should I be able to see the Drivers Door TRW Controller, as it doesn't appear to exist

Any ideas please?? Is this a possible relay?!?!?

No ideas

The windows switch and boot button are connected if you change window switch and proxy align both should work again.

Alfa 147

Just to give you an update
Pulled out the radio and the previous owners have not plugged the stereo back in and they decided to cut the iso plugs for a different stereo so have to look at rewiring
In response to Windows, neither passenger or driver is working, do they operate independently or is it that if the drivers one is down they both won't work!?

Already tried battery reset and had no luck

Was thinking about replacing door switch but as the current one has scrap yard markings I'm guessing that has already been done, thoughts ppl??
