  1. Annoying Ticking...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Evening all, Having ironed out the more pressing problems on my spider (Speedo, ABS light, that kinda jazz), I am now turning my attentions to the irritants! When driving, it sounds like a have a relay behind the (aftermarket) stereo, a 'tick tock' every 10-15 seconds or so. Anyone have any...
  2. Giulietta annoying radio problem

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello. I have a Giulietta 2.0 JTD 2015. Some time ago the audio system started reeboting and shutting of when I start the car or radio. The strange thing is that the radio usually operates in the morning when you start the car for the first time, after the first stop the rebooting starts and...
  3. Annoying Infotainment 'Glitch'

    Alfa Giulia
    After a search I couldn't see mention of this. If I stream music from my phone via bluetooth everything's fine until I turn the engine off. When restarting the Infotainment system defaults to a random FM radio station despite the fact that I only use DAB &/or Media. Is there an obvious way of...
  4. Annoying cruise control problem

    Alfa Giulietta
    So there is a problem that's been annoying me more and more for a while and it's how the car reacts to the cruise control inputs. If I increase the speed, as soon as I reach the desired speed and release the stick I get a 1 seconds (or so) shudder from the engine. Does it 9/10 times, and it's...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

Does anyone know if there is a setting or trick to do with it so that when the car is turned on it shows the relevant display...
  6. Disabling seat belt alarm???

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hey, guys! I have a frustrating issue with my seat belt alarm, and I would like to disable it permanently. It's not that i don't use the seat belt. I do, but the sensor for the passenger seat is broken or something, so whenever I have someone sitting next to me it starts buzzing. Ok it should...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider

  9. Annoying whistling noise...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Afternoon all, So I have noticed that when I unlock the car and get it, before I insert the key or turn anything on there is an annoying background whistle. I assumed it is was coming from the ac but no matter what I do with the ac settings it doesn’t effect it. The whistle is there whether...

  11. Annoying Engine Rattle

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Right guys. My car has decided to test my patience again with another annoying as S*** rattle noise. This time it sounds like it's from the injectors. Between 1000-2200rpm when accelerating there is a stupidly loud rattly sound. Hard to describe the noise but I'd say it was like a plastic babies...
  12. 2007 159 1.9 jtdm annoying rattle

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi guys. I've got this exact same annoying rattle/squeak on my 1.9 jtdm. Seems to have gradually got worse over the past few months. It's not steering or suspension related. Any ideas what it is?! Cheers
  13. Giulia Speciale annoying items

    Alfa Giulia
    Love my new car, but two things are annoying me; 1. The stop start function, I am in town a lot so function kicks in when I stop at lights or traffic, that's fine but when it starts up again, being a diesel there is quite a body shake when starting, so I end up pressing the cancel button a lot...
  14. Annoying beep's

    Alfa Giulietta
    Annoying beeps Hello, I have a G from 2011 without SatNav. When driving I hear 2 short beeps at what seems to be in a random interval. They are also heard when stopping the engine. I have the speed limiter set to Off, no radar warnings etc installed. The sound is different from the seat belt...
  15. Annoying - sidelight bulb fallen through into headlight housing

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So I bought some LED sidelight bulbs to match my 6000k HID headlights. However... they were slightly wider than normal halogen bulbs and turns out when I tried to pull them out they have fallen through into the headlight housing on both sides... quite simply, this annoys me!
  16. Annoying speed limiter

    Alfa Giulietta
    I live in the UAE and own a 2015 Gulietta QV (auto). In the UK (which is where i assume the majority of member on this site live) is there a speed warning? When you get over a certain speed does the dashboard light up with a number and continuously play a chime noise every 5 seconds until you...
  17. That annoying noise Pt. 2

    Alfa Giulietta
    Well, I've been back and forward to Western 3 times with this now. And, apart from one time when a mechanic came out and heard it with me, they keep telling me they can't find it. I did point out that you have to drive the car until it's warmed up and it's much more obvious in the dry, which I...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider

  19. Annoying Problem

    Alfa GTA
    Hi Guys Recently changed the front side light bulb and all was good for a while. However now whenever I brake it comes up with the 'side light failure' on the info screen. The light is definitely working and so if I turn the lights on it then comes up with 'brake light failure' which again they...
