  1. Alfa romeo 159 rear wiper acting up

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi! I don't really know how to explain this... the rear wiper seems to have a mind on its own. When I put the key in the socket, rear wiper goes twice over the window, and then continues about 1/3 the way more. Basically goes to one side, comes back, then moves to stop at a random spot on the...

  5. car is acting up

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My car's power isn't stable. Sometimes if I floor it on first the wheels just slightly slip and the car feels nice. Other times she's sluggish? Also my power steering gets harder when I accelerate and sometimes doesn't go lighter when I slow down. Is this an electrical problem? thanks

  10. Car was acting very strangely

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The other day I had the ABS/VDC light come on, which I usually ignore as the problem is usually the brake switch, but this time the car started to feel hesitant at low revs. I also had another warning light which I think was control system failure, but this would go out after a second. After...

    Hi all. The engine cooling fan on my 159 1,9 jtdm is acting strange. It starts running as soon as I start the engine, even on cold engine and 0 deg C outside temp. Shouldn't it be controlled by tempsensors and start and stop depending on engine temperature (water- and oiltemp)? I have had the...
