    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I'm opening this post to get some help and also to collect information from various sources to help upcoming forumers. My 2004 156 Ti has OEM Xenon headlights. The previous owner put a metal plate underneath the car that "pushes" (let's rather say it even bends...:disappointed: ) the linkage...
  2. Car won't start and gear selection blinking.

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've been having this "Selespeed limp mode" issue (not engine limp mode) and after few cold nights without running I found out that the car now won't even start. When I press start START it wasn't even making any ticking noise at all. Was going to blame just 3 months old Varta F19 battery but...

    Guys, I had to remove the airbag ECU due to mine failure, but I noticed today that passenger airbag light is not flashing, is that anything related to ECU?

  6. Why won't my blinking Spider start?

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Ok so it's a 1988 series 3 two litre left hooker. Have spent good money improving it over the 17 odd years we've bee together. Over the last 4-5 years it's been getting harder to start, especially as it doesn't get regular use (but it never did BTW). The compression is down a bit, but otherwise...
  7. Selespeed gear display blinking

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm trying to find out why does the Selespeed gear display blink but without any error. This is the display indicating which gear is currently selected. Only the display is blinking, the gearbox check light is not on and there is no beeping. Diagnostic does not show any error and the system...
  8. [GUIDE] Alfa 156, enable blinking lights when locking.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I made this guide years ago, thanks to the guide "blink on niko", although it was a bit hard to understand and had poor quality pics. First 156s only had blinking lights when locking if it was equipped with alarm from factory, the rest didn't have such feature. Later models corrected this. I was...

  11. Indicator lights blinking fast, all bulbs are ok

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Over the past few weeks my 156 has started to act strange with the indicator lights. The blinking to both sides is too fast, as in when one of the bulbs are blown, but on my car all the bulbs are working. Sometimes the blinking is normal, but then it suddenly goes fast, or the other way round...

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, I'm 'trying' to spec up a new Giulietta with the Alfa Configurator online, but it's doing my head in. I have got so close - about halfway through choosing options, it puts steel wheels on the car. When I try and add the wheels I want at the end, (18" 5 hole) it adds them to the price...

    I can't believe it, I had the off-side main-beam head light bulb replaced about 9 months ago and the near-side one replaced 3 months back and now the off-side one has blown again! :cry: Either I've got to be having the worst luck with headlight bulbs blowing or there is something else going on...

    Hello everyone, My car: '02 147 2.0L 56k ml A week ago, while driving on a motorway at sane speeds (130kph, 80mph), my much loved 147 gave me the dreaded MCSF. I had seen it a couple of times before (from new, actually), and had learned to ignore it and it would go away. This time it was...
