Brera - ECU problem
I had a flat battery and called out Green Flag who sent out a rescue contractor. He re-started my Brera using a battery pack. After 3 hours of driving, same thing happened. Called Rescue again and they sent out another contractor. He used the same procedure.
A few days later the Engine Management light came on and the display read 'Have Engine Checked'. I have since taken her to 3 different Alfa garages. The crankshaft sensor was changed, an unknown fault came up, several resets later and still the error comes up.
At the Alfa 40k service the main agent reset the ECU again and the same errors appeared. Recently I have been getting various messages like 'Hill Climb not available' and 'Alarm not...' always with the error message at start up. BTW the car itself is running absolutely beautifully.
I sent in an insurance claim to Green Flag for negligence with a supporting letter from the Alfa main agent stating that if a battery pack were used to restart the car without first allowing 10 minutes of equalisation then it was possible that the ECU could have been damaged.
Green Flag told me on Friday that the rescue contractors stated they only use battery packs with 'surge protection' so this problem will not have been caused by their operatives.
Does anyone have experience in this matter that could help me resolve this issue?
