    Hi everyone, I have a MiTo Lusso 1.4 Turbo 2009 155hp AXA1B variant which has a lot of extras like heated seats and climate control... The car started experiencing "steering column unavailable" error but when I turn off the ignition and start it again it works fine. Then the daylight error...

    This looks like a great piece of kit. It can safely maintain your battery using its internal battery source and get a flat battery to start in around 15mins. Apparently, it can hold a charge for around 1 year too, bit on the pricey side though... The price of convenience. I can see this being...

    Hi Guys, Something peculiar happened today. While I was driving (nothing seemed wrong) I got the ABS lights on my dash. Something I know happens when voltage is low on the battery. A short while later (1 minute) my radio shut off. At this point I noticed the idle RPM went from 800 to about...

    Hello, After changing battery display between guges is not showing radio station or track on CD or media player it is only showing date and that's it. Does someone have same problem or solution? Thanks.

    Hello Alfisti, Since the beginning of this year I am the proud owner of a 2011 Alfa Romeo MiTo 1.4 Multiair turbo 135 TCT; my first car. However, recently I started experiencing some battery-related problems like longer (cold) starts and weird TCT shifting behaviour (shaking and rough shifts)...

    Hi all I have a GT 3.2 LT. Have a problem where it’s struggling to turnover when starting. If I turn off and start up again with a minute or so it turns over ok. But if I wait a few minutes before trying again it struggles ? The battery is fully charged and alternator is charging correctly...

    Hi all, I am new at the forum, but I’ll cut the to chase. My 2012 Mito 1.3 jtdm 85 has suddenly broken down and won’t turn on. It felt like the battery at first, but there were no signs of it and now all warning lights on the dashboard blink randomly (or not), including the headlights. It dosnt...

    Hello all, I’ve had to trickle charge my battery a lot lately and put it down to not a lot of car use due to current times (COVID-19 for those looking back at older posts in years to come like I seem to do lol) Anyway I drove a good 18 mile stretch yesterday though I did excercise the stereo a...

    Hi All, I hope you are well. I wonder if anyone else is familiar with my sudden electrics issue, and has any advice for me. I've had a problem this week with no electrics in my 159, meaning I cannot start it and I cannot lock or unlock the car electronically with the fob. The usual dash lights...

    Morning guys! As the title suggests I have a slight problem... Battery has died in my Brera (Full disclaimer, car has been stuck at a garage during lockdown since the end of March with the battery connected, should've guessed this would happen). They started work on it this week, but went to...
  11. Alfa Giulietta
    I have 12 plate 1.4 Multiair Giulietta and I've found that the battery is going flat - down to 9v over a couple of days or on one occasion overnight after driving it the day before. I've charged the battery three times and its read 12.8v after charging an across the terminals it measures 14.4v...
  12. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I have a Giulietta QV Line (1.4TB Multiair) has recently started to give me a bit of trouble. In basic terms, it initially hesitated when trying to start - making a clicking noise several times with lights on the dash flashing. But you could hear it turn over, then it would eventually...
  13. General Alfa Discussion
    I have a 2014 gulieta and have/will be unable to drive it for a few months. I was planning on starting it up every three weeks to keep the battery topped up but it has already died (I am putting it down to the cold weather as the battery is only around 10 months old). I was wondering what the...

  15. Alfa Giulietta
    Morning All. I have a 2011 Giulietta 2.0 Diesel Veloce, after getting a few Alfa owners to look at my car and getting hold of an OBD scanner, I still can't clear the fault. I have a power steering fault, hill holder fault and DNA is not working. I've tried to clear the fault with the OBD...

    I have had a Low Battery Power warning come up and thinking it was caused by the ill fitting positive clamp, I made a better connection. However after having done so, I had the warning again. As I've fairly recently bought the vehicle, I don't know how old the battery is, so is it possible that...

    I don't drive my 159 1.9 diesel much, once a week at most The battery registers 11.8v when not running and 13.8v when it is. 1) Do I need a new battery or just take it for longer drives? 2) If I simply swap the battery for a new one, will the car lose settings or do I need to use a memory...

    My original battery is on its last legs. Anyone got any recommendations for a new one for a cloverleaf?

    My habit is to keep both my iPhone and laptop connected to power whenever possible. So when at home I usually keep my phone and laptop charging, then take them both to work and reconnect to power while at work. Am I doing the right thing to maximise battery life or not? I recently bought a...
