  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I have an airbag warning light on. I checked all under-seat connectors and tried resetting the light through an ODB2 tester. No errors are showing up but the warning light persists. Can anyone help? Also, a plastic wiper linkage has broken and I cannot seem to find the rack holding the...
  2. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi When starting the car to return from school run today, there was a beep: the airbag warning lights came on the message said 'airbag failure see manual' the needles for speed, fuel, water temp and revs all went to zero (they stayed this way driving home, the engine was hot and I had fuel) the...

    Hello, Normally I’m in the 916 forums discussing some sort of ailment but this time a friend is in need with her Mito 0.9, that has decided to brainfart over the last few days. Has an airbag light on and the boot button is stuck. I do have a diag tool but won’t see the car again until tomorrow...
  4. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, this is one of the first things I thought about doing as I quite like the look of the 159/Brera steering wheel compared to the Giulietta's. I can see that the airbags are very similar however the connections are different, so I'm thinking why not unscrew the airbag from the Giulietta's...
  5. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I have read the manual, many articles and watched a few videos on this problem so I know it could possibly be fixed. My problem is I have bought a cheap(ish) Bluetooth OBDII reader off of ebay and I am just wondering if my OBDII Bluetooth device should be able to read this code and reset it...

    Alfa GTV Airbag,fault 0361? 0361 can somebody tell me what code indicates is wrong? What is faulty? Car is in for Blue slip/MOT for rego. Cant register til it is fixed. We tried clearing the fault but it couldn't be erased. Once fixed will the light go out automatically or does the fault have...
  7. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My airbag light is on - the unit is a Becker, so I haven't been able to plug it to a computer. What I did is ground the pin 3 as per instructions on this board and what the flashing light tells me is: 5 blinks - driver airbag charge resistanstance out of tolerance 6 blinks - passenger airbag...
  8. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello gents, I know this may have been talked about many times before but I just like to bring it up again so people who know the latest and greatest can give input. I am after an OBD reader (cable or bluetooth) and a software on laptop which allows me to monitor how my car is doing, clear...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, So my Airbag sensor died, probably due to a dying battery on startup. Lots of weird clicking noises and the light never went out after changing the battery. cant connect to it via diag software. Been trying the local scrapyards, but all the older 156s have long since been turned into metal...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello there I wonder if anyone might have some thoughts on this idea I have... I have soldered all my Airbag yellow connectors, under the seat, the B pillars and C pillars at the back. My car is 3 door so I think the cause may be moving the seat or possibly helping other cars with flat...
  11. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Current steed is a GTV but I'm looking at a Brera. I saw quite a nice one on Saturday but the passenger airbag light, in the roof panel, was on permanently. There are no lights on the dash or beeps on start up. Since the owner doesn't have kiddies, I doubt if this is deliberate and suspect a...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I returned from Norfolk to West Sussex today,and possibly because of the vibrations and solar radiation heating up the dashboard,the cover for the airbag on the passenger seat-nearside, came loose and almost fell off from its position. I pulled over,investigated and it appears that the cover is...
  13. Alfa MiTo
    Before I pose my maybe awkward question, let me introduce our Mito.... After 22 years of very faithful service, With 220K km on the odometer, we had to replace our 1997 Alfa 156 (mostly due to increasingly harsh environmental MOT constraints in certain cities here). My daughter grew up with that...

    hi,, I have an airbag control module (ecu) error (error code b1001). I take my orijinal airbag ecu to a programmer and he reseted it. then everything was ok, there was no any error, but a few months later same error (airbag control module error) occured again. so I bought used (second hand)...
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    The 1999 SP1 156 with Allied airbags 2F 2C, has recently developed a habit of logging a driver's airbag pretensioner squib fault (high resistance). The thing is, there is no wiring (yellow sheathed or otherwise) connecting to under the seats. The seatbelt buckles have no wiring. The SP1 does...
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, A few months ago the airbag light on my 1999 156 selespeed came on. Took it to the garage and they could not clear the error. They said most likely the airbag controller was dead. Now, i wasn't planning on crashing anytime soon and the car probably has one of those faulty face removing...

    Is it safe to take this cover off (how?) without setting the airbag off, I want to earth my DAB aerial and this is the closest point - thanks
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I'm trying to figure out where the problem is with my wife's Alfa's blinkers. Started as a once-in-a-while not working problem, now if I flip the turn signal stalk up and down rapidly, they'll work for a bit, and then stop again. I'd like to test things without having to reconnect the...
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've not been about for a while, not been driving my 156 for well over a year either due to insurance cost, buying a Reliant and damaging the airbag control unit (own fault). As the control unit seems to be near impossible to find now, and I have the complete system from another car sitting...
