  4. Abs issues and limp mode

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I've got a 147 1.9jtdm which I'm having some issues passing the mot. The abs / esp light is on all the time and I read the code using alfadiag / multiecu scan which said both front wheels have spotted) a speed sensor wiring issue. However the car reads speeds when driving and I'm skeptical...
  5. ABS fault

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    The ABS light came on during a journey a few weeks ago. I can live without it as I am quite capable to cadence brake in the unlikely event I might need to, however the MOT man would not agree. So I got a friend to plug in his lap top and the ECU tells us that the right [o/s] rear sensor has a...
  6. Expensive ABS pump repair/replacement looming?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi guys, I have had an ABS warning light and an airbag warning light come on the dashboard of my 2001 916 3.0L V6 Spider. Additionally, recently, the car has made a strange noise going round right turns. My mechanic has been playing with this for a couple of days now and tells me that he now...
  7. Giulietta ABS front brakes wheel speed sensor cables

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi All, I need to replace both front ABS sensor cables. I can see how to connect the brake caliper end, but where does the other end of the cable connect to? Presumably an ECU somewhere but where? Any assistance appreciated. Cheers Alan.
  8. ABS pump numbers

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Dear Forum Members, I'm about to have my ABS pump (not the control unit) replaced due to reappearing fault code C1131 (integrated pressure sensor). Searching by the catalogue part number 71740274 only yields new units (roughly 1000-1200 quid), and used/refurbished parts sellers provide only the...
  9. Has anyone successfully tried the wonky idle fix by cutting ABS wire?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Here's the original thread for a 156 TwinSpark whose problems are eerily similar to what I and a ton of fellow GTV owners have been having: Has anyone managed to implement this? I haven't found a similar wire in the GTV's instrument cluster wiring diagram, but perhaps a GTV-specific fix has...
  10. ABS Brake Issue

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    When coming to a stop, the ABS kicks in and you feel a grind under the pedal. There are no ABS lights on the dash and I have done an OBD ECU scan and there are no errors showing. Does anyone know the cause/solution of this problem?
  11. Alfa 147 ABS ECU replacement

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, does anyone know if I can just change an ABS ECU? I have reason to think mine is faulty. I have MultiECUScan to do a proxy alignment if required, but what issues might arise when I do this? FYI, the replacement ECU has the same numbers on the ECU label as the original. thanks, Andy

  13. Problems with scanning ABS sensor error code

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I had the ABS, hill holder, stability control lights pop up a couple of weeks ago. I'd bet that it's due to one of the ABS sensors failing after a proper car wash. Tried to figure out which sensor is exactly causing the problem today by connecting MultiEcuScan to the car using a regular cheapo...

  15. Identifying faulty ABS sensor?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I've got an ABS sensor fault on the dash... The question is, how can I identify which sensor is at fault? I tried using an OBD reader with CarScanner app, but it doesn't generate any fault codes. Nor does it seem to show readings from ABS sensors. Also, are the sensors on just the...

  17. ABS sensor fault

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    ABS sensor faulty ABS module Tested the passive sensor and I'm getting 1.5K ohms which is the same as the new sensor. I'm guessing O C is open circuit? Could I have a break in the ABS loom possibly or does this mean something completely different? Not really relishing taking the sensor out if...

    South Africa
    I haven't seen this info anywhere else before so I'm posting it here. After months of searching through pics of Alfa ABS modules, I think I've struck gold. The 166 ABS module 0 273 004 228 has the same pin configuration as the Bosch 0 273 004 495 found in 2001 phase 2 GTV's. The modules ending...
