  1. Climate button replacement

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Had a little incident with the vacuum at the petrol station tonight - I’m now missing the fan speed button from my climate panel if anyone happens to have a one from a broken unit/breaker lying around? *d’oh*

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, car is 2.4 159 2008 Menu button is broken and I'm trying to avoid fixing the stalk for the time being. I've read on here that you can set the time with multiECUscan but for the life of me I cant find the setting. Which unit do I connect to? Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance
  3. 159 Sportwagon Tailgate Push Button

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Been having a little trouble with it the last few weeks, some days it works, others not. So tonight I had a look at it (whilst the trim was off from replacing the rear wiper). Having managed to get it off easily enough I noticed that the plastic around one of the fixing bolts was cracked and...
  4. Mystery button

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Have seen a lovey looking tbi Spider for sale on Autotrader with one little difference - a mystery button by the gear-lever. Anyone have any ideas what this could be for? Possibly some addition by a previous owner - switched electrical supply from 12v socket to some sort of accessory? Some sort...

  6. Starter button overlay

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I pressed the 159 starter button three weeks ago and felt it give. On examination it had two splits in it. I've been trying to find a solution rather than replace the black button and ordered a red vinyl sticker for the 159 and Giulia from Italy which turned out to be £16 worth of wrinkled...
  7. Menu button / lights on repair

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I know this has been covered in the past but sometimes it's worth posting again. Please ignore this if it annoys you to see it repeated. My menu button had stopped working, along with the dashboard dimmer. It was only really a problem when the clocks change, but I could use MultiECU Scan and...
  8. TRIP Button not working

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi Everyone, I have a 2012, 159 TBi Ti, which I got about 3 weeks ago. Love the car, but when I filled up the tank (full) for the first time today, my trip button doesn't respond/work anymore! Coincidence - or do I wait for the fuel to drop a bit in the tank? Blue&Me all works fine, but I can't...
  9. Door lock button

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi there, Was wondering if anyone has fitted a switch in the cabin that will lock/unlock the doors without triggering the alarm. I am aware that you can just push one of the door pins down, but that's way too much effort for me. Thanks

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider

    So I noticed yesterday that my rear window lock button wont disable. It's permanently lit red, luckily I was parked and I when I pressed the unlock button the boot opened! Anybody else had this? Another amazing electrical gremlin courtesy of Italy... Good job I didn't try it when driving on the...
  12. No Maps button!?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi! Mi dad recently bought himself a new Giulietta, it's a 2017 made, but sold in 2018. Is full red leather, 1.4 170cv and has a gorgeous touch screen that has no maps! Instead of the "map" button I see on other Giulietta's on internet, this one has a "Settings" button... Strange... any one has...
  13. What does your P button do?

    Alfa Giulia
    So since my car had some warranty work done (and a software update), pressing the P button on the gear selector now only engages park. Before the work pressing the button engaged park AND the parking brake at the same time - now I have to do both separately, which is quite annoying. How does...
  14. Sticking handbrake button.

    Alfa Giulietta
    Has anyone else suffered from a sticking handbrake release button on their G? Ours just started doing it today. The spring is fine but the bottom edge of the button is catching under the bottom of the hole and preventing it from coming back out on occasion. Its one thing after another Lol.

  16. 159 Electric Window/Light Button Panels

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, I have a couple of rattles in my 159. I have located them both, one to the light/reversing sensor control panel on the roof and the other to the electric window buttons on the driver's door. The window buttons are mainly affected by bass vibrating from the speakers but the roof panel is...

  19. GT "Sport" button

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, sorry if anyone has already answered this. I searched but alas to no avail :confused: I have the GT Cloverleaf 150bhp and was wondering whether Alfa had been lazy and programmed the ECU the same for both the 150 and the 170Q2? If so then could getting that 170bhp be as simple as...
