My son introduced me to the site, very informative. I have just joined so that I can a) Let you know about me and b) Ask for help.
I have owned a 146ti since 2000, today I tested and committed to buying a 2003 GTA from a main dealer, I pick it up in a couple of weeks, great car, I canít wait.
Problem, on completion of the test drive the car would not start, fans running at full pelt, temperature gauge not moving although car had been on a run.
From the contributions I note an identical problem ie `Motor Control System` failure. The dealer noted this as a crib to sort out but I am a bit unclear, can anyone confirm exactly what the problem is as I have seen reference to temp sensors and batteries, is this problem possible to resolve and is it expensive?
PS - I would link it this to the thread but not sure how buit this is the URL. http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/alfa-...m-failure.html (Motor Control System Failure)
Thanks in advance fellow Alfa nuts.
