2000 156 2.4 jtd

new 156 owner here

Hiya, I am Tom and am 26 and from Glastonbury, I hav just got my first alfa, a 2000 156 2.4 jtd 150, at first i was not impressed, basically i swapped it for my 91 escort cabriolet which owed me 300 lol, the alfa was described as tidy but front elec windows did not work nor did brake lights, i accepted this and took it home, i spent an hour this morning and managed to solve these issues quickly, i discovered everytim i put a new fuse in the "service" socket on the fuse box it blew, this was cause of window and light issue, i spent a good hour going through the wiring etc, i then traced it to be a faulty reverse light switch on the gearbox, i unplugged the sensor, put a new fuse in and hey presto all is fine now, jus need to order a new reverse sensor, i am hoping it is sensor at fault and not wiring lol, bar that i am pleased with the car and its very good acceleration lol.
