Help Digital mileage

I own a Alfa Romeo 156 2.5 V6, the only problem I have with it is that the display for the digital mileage and trip computer has disappeared. The handbook doesn't say anything about it, does anybody no what it is controlled by and how to sort out this problem.

Any help would be great.

Re: Digital mileage

It'll be a small bulb and you can get at it by taling the speedo out. I've seen it done but couldn't talk you through it. Someone on here probably will do soon though

Re: Digital mileage

What year is the car. If its the old LCD ones and it has disappeared it will be a new speedo probably.. Not ideal. They are about £120.

It might be repairable and could just be a loose wire inside it somewhere. I'd take it out and check the connections on the back. It is secured in place by 3 screws in the dial housing which you can see clearly if you look. You'll need to take it out anyway to get at it. There will be a part number on it starting with 5 or 6.

I don't think it sounds like a bulb issue. That is unless the car is 2002 Onwards.

Past cars - Mito QV - GT 3.2 V6 - 147 GTA x 2 - GTV 2.0 - 166 Super - 147 2.0 - 156 GTA - 156 1.8.

Thumbs Up Re: Digital mileage

Thanks for the advice, it's a 1999 model so I'll have a go at looking at the speedo.

Re: Digital mileage

If you can't find any bulb issues....don't pay the £120 mentioned above....I should have one......just let me know the part number. As said its only 3 screws to remove - one to remove the cowling, then twp more which secure the speedo. You need to wriggle it a bit to get it out....
