  1. Erratic central locks 166 TS

    Alfa 164 & 166

    Well well, we all know these cars have their odd behaviours. I’ve tried sorting my central locking out several times but can’t get the hang of it. When locking I need to press down the right front door lock 4 times and hold it down since it wants to keep popping up. After that I can lock the...
