  1. Relay in boot clicks on connecting battery

    Alfa 164 & 166

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi all, about a month ago I bought a 156 1.8 TS on an X plate (and so far thoroughly pleased!), but I'm hearing a few sounds that I'm not familiar with.

    Alfa 145 & 146
    Still got a bee up my a**e about the alarm on my 146 TS. I had problems with it self arming and annoying the crap out of neighbours 'cos I wasn't used to a car doing this. I discovered the way to re-set the country code for the alarm, giving different beeps and flashes when arming and disarming...
