    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    It seems that the alternator on my '01 147 1.6 is not working, as I get no more than battery voltage with the engine running. However, I get no warning on the dashboard. Is this normal? I would have expected a "battery charge low" warning to appear on the display. Looking around the forum...
