Variator Solendoid Issue/Alfadiag Help!
Got my Alfadiag full version working yesterday, performed idle actuator reset/ECU reset and ran various tests - all good. No fault codes were stored either.
I took the car out for a decent drive afterwards, by far the hardest I have driven it since buying. Car is running great, sharper throttle reposonse and definately pulls better through the gears...
One issue I had was when plugging the laptop back in when home there was a fault code stored, which I thought was odd considering it cant have been reset since its last trip to Alfa workshop in March. So to not have logged anything in months and then have a fault code within an hour of performing the resets is odd, or perhaps its linked to the first hard thrashing she's had?
I can't remember the exact fault code but it was related to the variator solenoid and was something like 'Open Circuit', which I presume is the solenoid not being in the correct position?
Is it possible to remove the solenoid and give it a clean, or is it a sealed unit?
