    Hello all, Can anyone tell me if the Autel MaxiDiag products work ok with GTV's? I need to be able to turn my airbag light off again, after being very happy that my car made it through its MOT with no issues, and I slapped the top of the dashboard above passenger airbag in joy >> light came...
  3. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hello I'm trying to diagnose the climate control system on my 2004 ALFA 166 3.0 Sportronic Lusso. Alas my AUTEL MD808 Pro doesn't get very far with - well almost anything - and neither does almost any other piece of equipment tried! Does anyone have a copy of the OFFICIAL Fiat/Alfa diagnostic...

  5. General Alfa Discussion
    Hi Everyone I have recently happily purchased my second Mito. (My 3rd Alfa). When I bought the car I noted to the dealer that the parking sensors did not work, following a discussion, and a discount on the price, I drove it away with the intention of sorting the sensors out myself. Initially, I...

  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT

  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello! I have been trying to find why my Alfa is misfiring and has a rough idle. It is Alfa 1.8 TS 1998. The sparks are new, after a change of some components it is much better but still there a lag in acceleration, rough idle and not so much a misfire but strong push pull on certain RPMs...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Had the following message this morning after the car struggled to start in the cold... Motor Control System Failure. I let the car warm up a little bit, then switched it off and started it up again, the message was still there. I suspect my battery is on it's way out as starting has been...

    Greetings all, So my first post on my first Alfa...:) 1996 Spider 2.0 Twin Spark. CF1 engine AFAIK. Just bought the car and it has failed its MOT with the ABS warning light on...:( It lights on start-up and goes out after a couple of seconds. However I count to 10 and it has re-appeared...
  11. South Africa
    I finally found my diagnostic cables after a 2 to 3 month search through the whole house. Because someone put it in a packet under my hiking bags that I haven't used in a decade... I sometimes wonder... But I digress. I have been driving with my ecu light on for about 4 months now and decided...

  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Guys, So I went and got the cables to diagnose my airbag/Abs lights, and downloaded Multiecuscan. Its a 2000 156 1.8TS, with no seat airbags. Using the KKL with green cable, I got the following codes for the ABS - 09 Front Left Speed Sensor in OC - generic-intermittent -20 0B Front Right...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm new to Alfas but have history with VAG cars... In that world people would use VCDS (vagcom) for the diagnostics and a cracked copy of the stealer's ETKA parts system. What are the equivalents for Alfas? I guess MultiECUScan would look after the diagnostics but what about the parts software...
  15. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I recently bought an OBDII bluetooth dongle/"thingy" from eBay, there are loads on there - you probably all know the ones, they are based on something called ELM327 and they all look similar to this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/321370571723 Anyway for £5.25 I thought I'd give it a punt. The...
  16. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Has anybody ever managed to connect to the Spider phase II (that means 16pin OBD connector) roof ECU? I was not succesfull with ALFA OBD or MULTIECUSCAN (and KKL USB OBD 2 cable with built-in pin switch)... Maybe it is necessary to use 16pin to 3pin reduction and connect via 3pin connector in...
  17. Alfa Giulietta
    Hello, Can someone please point me in the direction of a good quality, reasonably priced Diagnostics cable that I can use for my Giulietta with MultiEcu scan. I already have a KKL vagcom cable and a set of 3 adapters which work perfectly on the GTV. The multiecuscan website shows that I need...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Evening gents, I've got a 2000 (X reg) Alfa 156 2.0 TS, and I've got an engine management light that doesn't go away, the fault code is classed as "undocumented" and is not a usual one from my understanding. The code on the diagnostics computer was given as: 1689h / 5769, it would be very...
  19. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've had the GTV (2000 X reg, 2.0 TS) in the workshop, sorting out some of the niggles, since getting back on the road. One of which was the heater stuck on all the time, which turned out to be a failed stepper motor, so pulled one off the donor 156, and fixed that. However now that we have a...
  20. Alfa 164 & 166
    So I bought an OBDII wireless (elm327) interface off ebay. Guess I should have read more forum threads before I ordered. It was very cheap though, so meh, I'm sure I'll be able to find a use for it some day... Anyway, as far as I understand, it can't be used on my 166. I'm still a bit confused...
