    Hi all, I'm just wondering if any of you have experience of the black Alfa switchblade key button malfunctioning? Went to use the key this morning to unlock the car and, how can I describe it, the main button depresses fine but I don't feel the 'lump' in the centre of the rubber there anymore...

    Hi everyone, I want to replace my 156 selespeed steering wheel (push-button type) with shift-paddle type. Can this be done? Is it "plug-and-play" replacement? Thanks

    Hi all. I've been searching the threads and seen that a few people were thinking about doing this mod. I know Big Dave all but started it but never got round to updating his guide. I was wondering if anyone knew which colour wires to cut into. I think its the ignition and starter ones but not...

    A couple of the ICS (? - the climate control/radio etc) buttons don't work on my 166. Has anyone had any experience how to fix them? Cheers.
  9. Alfa 145 & 146
    Toad had a cool Start button in his Sprint. I-WANT-ONE-OF-THOSE!!! Is it possible to do in the 145. I assume that the CODE is read from the key when it is moved to the ignition setting, and all that's needed is a short to turn the relay on for the starter motor??? Anybody done it?

    Could we have an Ebay link button, it would save a lot of time (not to mention bandwidth) when having to post these tedious hyperlinks that seem to appear in 50% of posts, more so on the 155 bits? :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Sometimes when I get in the alarm light stays on a constant red. Is this warning me the battery is low in handset or something else it seems to go off after ten seconds or so. Mark.

    Don't know if this has been mentioned before and it's only a very small thing. On the dark theme, when you reply to a PM the forward button appears to be from the wrong theme, it's blue and looks quite wrong. I took a screenie of it. Hope this helps. Cheers, Robin

    The rubber key button for my 156 has cracked badly and it is now difficult to use the central locking. I called my dealer and they told me that I had to buy a whole new key. This is ridiculous, my girlfriends bmw had a similar problem and the dealer sorted her out woth a new rubber pronto. I...

    Sometime, after I turn on the engine(ignition), the LED of the central lock button are turn on at RED colour. I have checked the handbook roughly and cannot find the explanation. Can anyone tell me what it means?
  17. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Has anyone thought of installing a starter button in their GTV/Spider? The Fiat Coupe's last Limited Edition prior to its demise had one - remember? Moreover the Interior of the GTV/Spi has an ideal place for it, replacing the cigarette lighter in the centre console with something like this:

    Hi, There's a rubber button on top of my Brake fluid reservoir labelled something like "Press this to test indicator". Nothing seems to happen when you press it. The reson I was checking the reservoir was that the brake warning light was coming on when accelerating flat out. Anyone got any...

    Hi All, just a q? Whenever I hit the src button on my steeringwheel it changes full sources, so it goes from fm1, fm2, fmt, am, lw, cd. Whenever I push it on the radio unit it swaps only from the current "radio band" to "cd" and back again, this is only when I have a cd in my unit. Is this...
