  1. Alfa Brera Air Con Fault!!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, Turned my 2.4 Brera on today to demist the windscreen and... nothing. The dual aircon display works perfectly and all buttons work etc but no air comes out whatsoever! If you listen carefully, when pressings the airflow arrows (window, face or feet) you can actually hear the airflow...
  2. Hot Day - Air Con Just Stops!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All I drove about 20 yards today with the aircon blasting cold air over me. Then it just stopped, the fans stopped. The controls panel was on but did nothing. Switched on and off everything but nothing! Has this happened to you and what was the fault? Cheers James
  3. Ignition and Air Con Power Source For Fan Install

    Alfa GTA
    Howdy. I'm putting in a new lightweight fan and alloy rad and the fan kit control module needs a power source which goes on with the ignition and one that goes on when the air con starts (air con clutch) Any ideas on the best place to tap into these?
  4. 166 2.0 Air Con Condensor needed

    Alfa 164 & 166
    My A/C has never blown cold, so went for a re-gas yesterday .... but they said the condensor is knackered / leaking so a new one needed:disappointed: . Tried Alfa Workshop etc & they say they can't get new ones. Autolusso are going to get back to me. Google has come up with aftermarket ones but...

    Thanks Dom
  7. Air Con Service Advice Please?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, I have two '99 GTV P2 Lussos, a 3.0 V6 and a 2.0 TS. The 3.0 has done 51k and the 2.0 has done 24k. Both air con systems do not work. From experience, will a standard re-gas work, or are there some parts I'll typically need to replace? I'm guessing standard parts would be all the O...
  8. Climate control - air con one side only

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    With the warmer weather I noticed that chilled air is only coming from the passenger vents. According to Multiecuscan there are no errors logged for the climate control system. I did notice that one of the temperature sensors wasn't returning a reading but then I looked behind the tray/control...
  9. Air con or lack of it

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello happy Alfa Owners, well my first glitch on my G, the AC is not getting cold. I had it serviced last year and it was working fine, the car is not used much and yesterday it just refused to blow out any cold air. I have put on Multiscan and I cannot hear the Are con pump relay clicking in or...
  10. Dual Zone Air Con Question

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, Is there a way to 'sync' both zones on the air con on a 159 Ti, so that one dial adjusts both temperatures at the same time? I'm sure mine used to do it, but it doesn't any more and it's a pain in the bum having to adjust both dials every time I want to change the temperature (most...
  11. Air con not working

    Alfa Giulia
    I left work today and when I started the car I noticed that the blowers sounded a bit weird. Then after driving a couple of minutes I noticed it was blowing out hot air. Turned the temperature down and it still blew hot air. Turned it all the way to Lo, the fan speed increased (it was all set to...
  12. Air con not working

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So realised the AC is not working today, warm air! The radiator fan comes on, not 100% sure if there is a click or not from the compressor, engine does not change note, the AC pipes in the engine are both warm too (normally at least one is v cold). I had the AC refilled last summer, (it had lost...
  13. Air con - odd "grinding" noise

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere, but another item on the snag list of my new 159tbi sportwagon. When the air con is engaged, there is an odd hollow grinding noise that changes in pitch as the engine revs. It isn't present when the air con is switched off, so I'm worried the...

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ

  15. Alfa Romeo 159 - air con control unit part number

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, Sorry that my first message is a very direct question - I am under a bit of time pressure, so I could use some guidance. The heater/aircon control unit (command panel) in my beloved 159 2.2 JTS (manufactured Nov. 2005) has packed up. The local dealer says the electrics behind it are fine...
  16. GT Air Con only cold, passengers side

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hey guys, Been trying to fix this for a while, have the ELM USB coming from ebay, but I'm in Aus, could take a while :(. This is what ive done so far; Just tried the battery disconnect trick, didn't work, though I feel the passenger side is even more aircon-y now. When I reconnected the...
  17. Air con drain

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've heard people talk about checking and clearing this out to ensure water doesn't enter the interior. I've never got around to checking mine. Where would I find it?
  18. Amazing self healing air con!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    The air con in my Spider packed in last summer. It was fine up until then but after a re-charge it lost all refrigerant 3 days later, halfway through France on the way to Italy and was a nightmare in 35 degree Italy. Anyway, about 8 weeks ago I called out a mobile specialist who pressure tested...
  19. Air Con Condenser Replacement

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi All When to have the air con re-gassed yesterday and was advised that the condenser needs replacing. Unfortunately this is classed as wear & tear and not covered under warranty - there's a surprise. Anyone replaced this themselves and if so how easy is it - I'm quite good a car repairs so...
