GTA now in
Join Date: Sep 2015
I used to carry a laptop too, loaded with Alfadiag for the warning lights and various other random faults, but had nowhere to keep the spare, so in the boot it stayed. BTW the fix for the airbag light is to remove the seats and resolder the connectors.
I had loads of immobiliser issues with mine (v common at the time, was the main reason for the GTV's poor reliability record) but I don't see any threads about that nowadays. Presumably the GTV had variable quality electrics (just like the 156 has variable quality underseal) so all the 'lemons' must have long since been fixed or scrapped. Still, I believe the ecu can be properly reflashed nowadays so even that's not really a problem any more; at the time the only fix was a new ecu set from Alfa!
