New Alfa 156 owner
I'm a Vauxhall man at heart really, but when my last one died I went on E-bay to find a replacement quickly and found someone in my town selling an S-reg 156 for less than £500. After taking it on a test drive and finding that it was a great car to drive I bought it and for the last couple of weeks have been very happy.
A couple of niggles that I need to sort out are -
The remote key is broken (works to start the car but not to remotely unlock it) - Is there a way to get the key refurbished or replaces, I contacted Alfa who quoted me £300 for a new one!
Heating control is temperamental and the temperature gets stuck. I'm going to try resetting the system and performing an ECU reset, otherwise I guess I need to replace the solenoid behind the temperature controls...
While I have the battery disconnected to perform the ECU reset I want to replace the aftermarket stereo with a Sony one, does anyone know if I'll need an adapter ot make the wiring match, and where I can get one from?
