156 Sportwagon

156 Sportwagon

Hello All,

I have finally taken the advice that everyone should own and Alfa at least once and have bought myself a 156 sportwagon 1.8ts. I have got it for a good price as it has some faults (which I have listed below). If anyone could shed any light as to whether these are common faults or know of any rectification methods I would be greatful.

1. There is the normal stripped sump plug problem which i have sorted with a heli coil.
2. The speedo works normally but drops to zero whenever the lights or indicators are turned on.
3. The airbag warning lights are on constantly.

Re: 156 Sportwagon

Hey, welcome to AO. with regards to the Airbag warning lights, look at the connections under the front seats and ensure they are tightly connected. This is a first port-of-call for taht problem
