GTV 916 TS No Start
Have had a search but can’t seem to find my exact problem.
Started the car after lunch and after turning over maybe half a turn or less, it just died. Dash cut out, there was some soft clicking behind the dash and the dash slowly came back but no power to anything electrical (windows, radio, etc). Took the key out, back in, out (shook it all about haha) and then the dash came back to life as normal. Code light on, read the code, turned off, injector light goes out, try to start, makes a few clicks in the engine bay area and….. dead again!! Nothing, nada, zip… The whole process will then start all over again as if the battery is flat and all of sudden come back to life. I rolled it a little in 3rd gear just in case it was an engine seizure and the engine cycles over OK. It’s a really hot day today so don’t know if maybe tonight it might suddenly do that Alfa thing and work as if nothing had happened. Bad relay? Which one?
Had to take the dust off my motorbike to get into work this afternoon…
