    Hi everyone. I'm a newbie member here but have used this site to guide me through the many repairs in my Alfa GT 1.9 JTD so thought I'd try and return the favour.

    My cigarette lighter has power, enough to light LED on the USB phone charger but won't deliver any power to the phone. I've tested 2 different USB plugs, 2 different adaptors. All combinations work in a friends car, without issue. Tested my socket with a multi meter and it delivers a constant...

    So yesterday I went to Chatz to start collecting items for my cambelt service. On the way home, I got the "Battery Charge Low" warning, on the GT. After testing the charge (12.2V) I charged it up to just over 13V, thereafter I tested the voltage with the engine running, and got around 14.17V...

    Charging from USB blue&me port does not seem to work. Im quite fedup with the default installed blue&me system in my 159 2010. Also the update process is stupid; and many times it gave me issues but now on 5.5 software version. It seems to have all kind of limitations, even for the year 2010...

When I came to start it later, the battery...

    I hope someone can help. I've read a few of the threads on the forum and other areas of the web but thought someone on here could provide the advice I need. I bought an 05 GT a week ago, all was fine on the short runs I've done but today I took the car out for 2 short runs (less than 15 mins)...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've had this weird fault since I had the mechanical side of the gearbox replaced months ago. When you start the car the voltage is only ~12v and the speedometer does not work (Had this before as its sensitive to low voltage). I have a volt meter on my head unit which shows the voltage...
  16. Alfa GTA
    I have been pondering around for some time about my long term project. Haven't really driven my GTA for 2-3 years and the last 6 years I might have driven it about 15000 km. Used to do 30k a year before, so not much. So I have always been into doing some mods and I started out with these...
