  1. Body Computer Intermittent connection lost ?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    As some may recall I'm still on a journey fixing my 2.2 JTS Selespeed from 6 months ago. Since the car has not been major commuter it's been sitting in garage untouched most time for past 3 months. Maybe it's time for another Alfa but I still want to find out and fix it so I can handover a...
  2. Computer desk planning

    The Technology Section
    OK, I need a new desk. The spec for it is pretty specific - both so it'll fit where I want it, and so my computer will fit into it. I have been unable to find anything that is quite right by trawling google. Locally, I could get someone to make me one from scratch - but we're probably talking...
  3. Non specialist servicing / computer reset?

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hello, sorry new here but hoping to get some advice. I've had my 60 plate Giulietta for 5-6 years and since warranty expired have had it serviced at an independent Alfa only specialist with no problems. Now moved further away and this isn't as convenient as it was. In the early days before...

  6. alfa 147 injection computer

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Back in 2001 when I bought my 147 1.6ts,it had a problem. There was a knock in the engine between 2000-2300 rpm (at this point I started wondering what a 'knocking sensor' is used for). The problem you might say wasn't that big, but the thing is that when driving in the city or going up a...
  7. Board Computer Display upgrade GT/147

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hi, a question to the electronic experts around here. :lick: Had a look at the 2016 Giulietta Facelift and was suprised Alfa changed the BC display from a red to a black/white one. Would this also be possible doing myself with the Board Computer of the GT/147? Presumably some electronically...
  8. body computer removal.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello all. I'm going to try and see if my body computer connections need a good clean before I bite the bullet and take it to an auto sparky and a huge bill lol. Has anyone got a step by step guide to removal, tools needed etc. I know its above the fuse box but that's about it. Thx
  9. Car computer display not turning on

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello everyone, I've got an alfa romeo 156 2005 1.9 jtd and I've got an issue with car computer display. It doesn't turn on most of the times. It sometimes turns on randomly while driving and it remains on until I shut the car down. Does it have something to do with temperature maybe? It...
  10. 156 and the trip computer accuracy!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    There are many posts on this, but I really cannot believe how inaccurate the trip computer is! I own a 156 1.9 16v JTD, and I'm getting over 500 miles to a full tank of diesel. Acceptable or not? I'm not particularly sure, I think I worked the fuel consumption out to be around 41mpg or...
  11. Dash computer

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Does my 2007 GT Blackline have a fuel computer fitted please? It has a multi readout including the ability to change temp etc from imperial to metric. I spent five minutes this morning looking for a fuel setting but no luck, but there again i struggle with a digital watch. Thanks, john.
  12. Trip computer VS odometer; low fuel warning light

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Well I have a peculiar issue. My car was in the workshop for a long time and I assume the battery was disconnected for some days (probably). Now I noticed a funny thing - since then my trip computer read less miles than the odometer. From experience of distances I drive I would say that...
  13. Computer Login Problem

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have a 1998 GTV 3 litre that I bought recently and it was going ok until I ran it low in fuel. I refuelled it and now it will not start. It tries, firing intermittently but not enough to start. It is however delivering fuel to the manifold so the fuel pump must be working. I attempted to put...

  15. How to remove body computer Alfa GT

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So because of water sipping into the body computer it needs to be replaced. Seems simple enough, but I'm not sure how it should be done. So i've unplugged al the connectors and removed three visible bolts, but the fusebox / body computer won't budge at all. See attached pictures. Are there any...
  16. 156 trip computer confusion!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Morning all. Got a 2.0 jts and I'm confused. I filled the tank yesterday and reset the mileage on the speedo to zero, I also reset the on board computer, the mpg the lot. Now the mileage on my speedo says one thing and the distance travelled on the computer says another. Probably a 5 mile...
  17. 147 computer display unit too dim

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi everyone, the computer display unit between the speedo and rev counter is so dim I can't read it. Just spent a merry half hour wrestling the instrument cluster out of the car and putting a replacement screen from a donor car in but still dim. Hmmm frustrating. The trip computer buttons work...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Alfa Spider 2.2 JTS 2007. Looked everywhere under the steering column etc. for my onboard computer socket. Just cannot find it to connect my OBD11 Scanner.
  19. Computer slowed right down.

    The Technology Section
    The last couple of days, my PC has slowed right down. Takes ages to connect to a web page (sometimes saying page can't be found, then brings on the page). Even moving from one item to another on here can take a long time. I can here the PC grinding away. There is plenty of room left, and cleaned...
  20. That pesky body computer

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello folks. So, having lost one of my (HiD) headlights to that pesky body computer I've managed to get this fixed by tapping a relay on to the headlamp on the other side with a battery feed (don't worry there's a fuse in between). So this bodge is working for now, but of course if the...
