    Hi there, I've had my QV for a few weeks now and started sniffing the various can busses. As it's my first time doing stuff like this, I find it a bit difficult to find what I want, so the list of interesting frames is pretty short... I've put my research results on GitHub for anyone who's...

    Good day to all of you! I was hoping that somebody can help me here. I couldn't find anywhere the pinouts for heater control module. Anyone knows? I am looking forward to a small project for my winter holiday to connect to alfa's CANBUS network and for that I need to get to the CAN lines...
  5. Alfa MiTo
    Hi, just wondered if someone could help? I’ve just bought a 2009 mito, and the head unit has been changed to a pioneer aftermarket one. The odometer is flashing - so I assume the blue&me module was removed and the old owner just dealt with the flashing! So, can I just replace the blue&me unit...

    Hi all, I have 159 2.2JTS from 2006 with OEM Bose subwoofer fitted in the car. Now I'm currently in the process of upgrading my OEM Alfa radio/cd head unit with new 2 DIN head unit from Caliber (the OEM head unit is without aux-in option). In order to get steering wheel controls to work...

    I am currently installing an Android touch screen double din head unit that has canbus wiring connections for the steering wheel buttons. My 2007 159 currently has the basic double din radio head unit and I don't have Blue & Me. Can anyone tell me what the colour codes are for the canbus audio...

    I've tried fitting my single DIN into my 159. Upon removing the standard head unit, I was delighted to find that the ISO adapter matched the one I already had for my stereo. Fitted it all nicely, no problems at all with getting it in there. Now I plug it in and the thing won't power up. The...

    2007 939 Spider, got home last night to find a brake light error showing on the dash. As there are 4 bulbs on each side, at least one of them is double filament, I didn't look too closely to see if the canbus reported which side, preferring to look visually. Looking at the rear of the car, the...

    Hi All, This is my first thread on this forum after I picked up my first Alfa last Saturday. Since receiving the car and using MultiCueScan to attempt to install a newer B&M unit for the RadioNav upgrade, the diagnostics are reporting an issue with Serial Line W. This then is stopping a Proxy...
  14. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi All, I have read hundreds of topics about this and am still no nearer to solving my problem. My 2006 Alfa 159 2.2 JTS has developed the dreaded VPS not available warning. I have tried all of the connections etc, disconnecting the battery, and all to no avail. It started after I replaced the...

    I found this feature in a January 1975 car mechanics magazine is this CANBUS? http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=650290&stc=1&d=1463954459
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys, I've just bought myself a 147 1.6 TS and it has developed the infamous flashing Odometer. I've been doing a lot of reading through the threads on ECU resets and problems with the canbus, and from what I can gather the way to stop flashing Odo is the get a canbus proxy alignment...

    Pioneer AVIC CANBUS adapter cable connection (SOLVED) EDIT: after tracing the wires and forcing my German on a couple of websites, it seems that I just need to leave everything as it is, right? However, somewhere I read that on one of the connectors I have to switch (or bridge?) pins 4 and 7...

  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello so a sidelight went and I decided to upgrade to some LED replacements... I ordered some off ebay with 'Canbus' - a chip that bypasses the ECU telling you that a bulb is gone. I got them through and whilst fitting sae that the bulb's bayonet fitting on the original is offset!!! Instead of...
  20. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    ELM327 V1.4 reliably connects to engine. ELM327 V1.4 plus yellow adaptor lead will not conect to CANbus. Any obvious reason or keep trying? I also have KKL lead but CANbus is ELM lead isn't it? Mileage flashing so want to do proxy alignment. Also lost B&M (no surprise there) and wanted to...
