    Alfa Giulietta
    Do any Giulietta's come with dynamic cruise control, the one that adjusts your speed if you're approaching a slower moving car?

  3. Motor control system failure

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Morning all. I'm having an issue I can't find any info on, I'm hoping you guys can help. I'm getting a motor control system failure message, but nothing is happening; i assume it's related to the crank sensor, but there's no cutting out, no loss of power. Strangely though, the driving data -...
  4. Nut spec for upper control arm bearing?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, I had the an issue with my upper control arm nut, that it kept spinning in place and I had to use a dremel to cut it off! But now I don't know what nut is required! Does anyone know what spec nut is required for the upper control arm ball bearing?
  5. Cruise control potential issue

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all. The cruise control on my 2014 1750 Giulietta seems to occasionally not engage. Typical scenario will be; cruise control is turned on all of the time, as in green dial is illuminated on display, but approximately 1 time in 10 when I go to push the lever up to engage, when driving at the...
  6. Dual zone climate control issue

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello, my dual zone climate control runs different temperatures even though the dials indicate the same setting. The drivers side is cool and the passengers side is hot, you can feel the difference. All started when I had my pollen filter changed, also the heated seats have stopped both sides...
  7. 2.0 TS imperfect throttle control, slightly jerky at lower rpm.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Since I have my car it never behaved right. Facts: - new Marelli AFM since yesterday - car became even worse ( I am not sure if it was necessary - the new unit reads very different values than MES gives as target, just like the original BOSCH unit did, it reads ca. the double amount of air . In...
  8. Climate Control Relays GTV P2

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have read a number of posts about getting the interior fan to work. My most recent TS purchase has the fault where the fan knob does not appear to work at all. I have tested the fan itself and it is fine. I have looked for hidden relays having removed the glove box and panelling under the...

  10. 156 2.5v6 lower control arms

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I am in the process of replacing my lower control arms and cannot get the mounting bolts to line up. It appears the bracket is half a hole too short. Trying to line it up with a screw driver does not work as it wont move far enough to line up. I did order 147 arms by mistake but i thought they...

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi i’m going to buy a 2010 giulietta soon, i was just wondering if i bought a 2016 control panel (with white numbers), would it fit in a 2010 G - i can’t stand the look of the red backlight and numbers any feedback would help!
  12. Fault code P0443-13 Evaporation Control Valve Drive

    Alfa Giulietta
    Afternoon all, I'm new to Alfa ownership and the forum having recently bought a Alfa Giulietta 1750 TBi Cloverleaf. It's just pinged a fault code P0443-13 Evaporation Control Valve Drive. I've run the diagnostic using Multiecuscan and the valve clicks on and off suggesting it's working (or...

  14. Traction control kicking in - unnecessarily

    Alfa 164 & 166
    My 166 has developed a weird fault. On low-speed right hand turns, the traction control will sometimes cut in, applying the brake on the front left wheel. When this happens, the traction control light on the dash flashes. It only ever happens on right hand turns, and only affects the left...
  15. Annoying cruise control problem

    Alfa Giulietta
    So there is a problem that's been annoying me more and more for a while and it's how the car reacts to the cruise control inputs. If I increase the speed, as soon as I reach the desired speed and release the stick I get a 1 seconds (or so) shudder from the engine. Does it 9/10 times, and it's...
  16. QV Adaptive Cruise Control.

    Alfa Giulia
    Have read a few posts that it’s possible to activate the Adaptive Cruise control on cars that don’t have it as std as all the hardware is already installed. From what I can gather all I need to add is steering wheel button and enable ACC with MES. Has anyone done this ? Thinking of giving it...
  17. Removed climate control now hazards dont work!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I was changing the bulbs in the climate control unit 2001 156 with AC and when I re-assembled the hazards don't work and also lights don't flash when I set the alarm. I plugged the switch back in, what could have gone wrong? Cheers!
  18. 147 Aircon/Climate control problem

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    My aircon isn't behaving: when the car's first started (with the aircon on), you hear the compressor kick in and it works fine and brings the rad fan on. If you then turn the aircon off, it won't turn back on until the car has been switched off and on again. It also seems to be turning itself...
  19. Rolling road traction control issue on Mustang 4wd linked rolling road

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, After considering a remap for my 2013 Giulietta jtdm 170 for a while I decided to go with either NJS who I think supply the Celtic map or Viezu. I decided with Viezu in the end as they had a rolling road and the sales guy seemed helpful and told me that they would be able to put the new...
  20. Aircon rear seat control unit

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So for some reason my rear control unit stopped working. There is also an error in the aircon controller that it cannot communicate with the rear unit. I though maybe there was a plug loose, so I checked ELEARN for the wiring diagrams. Seems everything is tucked away deep inside the dash. The...
