Just a quick intro...well not that quick
2nd owner of 1999 2.5 Sportronic. LPG convert so no acid clouds. Darn suspension is lowered..not good for London road humps with LPG tank, a 1 ton spare wheel and two rear adult passengers. Also a £500 catback sounding like an incoming ships horn at 2200rpm or 5.7 Mustang!!! Wife hates me even more and to make it worse, I cannot even play tunes to calm her and to block out the noise out. Anyway will sort in due course I suppose.
ICS code issue...yeah, you know, the one that all Alfa 166 virgins get. But this may be an original. Anyway, found a code - 4 digit - among previous owner's papers but the 'select knob button thingee' at the bottom right of the LCD screen that highlights numbers when turned to-input the code does not press in??
Is this the way you are to 'enter' the numbers selcted by pressing this button??
Feels like it should - but nothing happens!! No spring behind the button. Is it a spring gone behind or what!! Can anyone get me off to a good start here??
Alright - people looking at you from the outside...great they do not know that I am singing to myself here in the car
If all fails, then its off to the Alfa dealer, but am ABSOLUTELY CONVINCED that someone knows. If this is NOT how you enter the code then how do you do it? How can you fix this knob? And how do you get behind this console to pretend you are an Alfa specialist but saving yourself a months feul instead because you did your way. HOPE TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON...before I go insane due to my own singing over the ship horn exhaust
