Re: Alfa 147 Problems
I have been looking at my satnav problem and i am not sure what it is.
Hoping some electrical genius can give me a clue.
1. Connect unit works fine with the ignition off.
2. DIS system briefly shows radio station when starting the car, together with SMS alerts (if a message has been received)
3. When the ignition is turned on, time and outside temperature appear briefly before the master code screen pops up. Also if you have the trip screen selected, when the ignition is turned on the figures get populated, again just before the master code prompt appears.
This means to me that the data feed to and from the body computer works.
It is either a dodgy connection or a faulty satnav, from my diagnosis.
From my understanding, the satnav talks to the body computer, and if it doesn't recognise it, asks for the master code. I have the code and also paid the £20 to get it off the NSR, but it won't accept it.
I suppose another theory is the satnav has been re-coded - is that possible????
If so can i just have it re-coded and be done with it?
Any help appreciated, cos at the moment i am gonna be paying an Alfa techy for two hours labour which aint cheap!! And i may still not have a fix after that!
