Many of you have F/L interiors & may not read the Technicial section. Damo or Gav, Please feel free to move if this thread is not suited to this section.
Since the new year, 2012, started Alfa 156's [ petrol or diesel ] with Face-lift interiors that have the central dash mounted LCD sceen are displaying the incorrect DAY for the correct date.
EG today is TUESDAY Jan 3rd 2012 but the screen will say WEDNESDAY jan 3rd 2012.
1. live with it until March 1st [ this being aleap year the s/w is a day out ] when it'll correct itself.
2. change the year BACK to 2006
3. Change the year FORWARD to 2017.
Turn the key to the Ist stage [ DO NOT START the engine ] let all the self checks finish
Press INFO button, use the + button to scroll to DATE
Assuming your time, day, month are ok kepping pressing the INFO button
until Year [ 2012 ] flashes, now press - to get to 2006 or + to get to 2017
Press Info until you get back to Main menu, press + until EXIT, then press INFO to save.
Hope it helps a few Alfa owners
