  3. No dials working and pretty much all warning lights on.. No Joke..

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just started the car (2005 GT JTDm) which had been driving fine earlier today, and there is virtually no dials (rev, speedo, fuel and temp), of buttons working and most warning lights are on. Fuel light flashing. Disconnected battery and it reset itself and even the airbag light was off (bonus)...

  7. DashBoard Dials Clocks Flicker Headlights Throb

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just adding this in case someone searches for this problem It seems a fair few people have this problem which they are pointed in the direction of the body ecu. Which for some cases it maybe a problem as they can over heat. But the most popular cause for the Headlight throbbing blowing bulbs...

    Hi, I need to buy the Speedo Dials Clocks with white background for an Alfa Romeo 147 FL 1.9 Mjet (MY2008) for a UK conversion (kmph -> mph). It must be the latest models as I want a perfect match. It is NOT mandatory to work as I will use only the speed cluster. I think the Speedo is the same...

  11. 147 Lose Climate Dials

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello everyone, back from the test station with the wife's wedding prezzie 147 with a fresh 12 months ticket on it. Had to replace the entire front braking setup to cure an imbalance but we've done it. Now on to thinking about sorting the more niggly bits with the car, chief among which is the...
  12. changing backlight for console dials..

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I was curious what is involved with changing out the backlight for all of the dials on the console (A/C, fan direction, etc..) I have a 2000 156 TS and since I was going to change out the lights on the gauges, I figured why not all of the others so they can all be up to date and equal...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Had a spare hour today so used it to put the rear spoiler on (to a fashion ), and the replacement speedo and tacho ( cos they are the easyist to fit. lol).

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just got hold of a set of orange on black dials and what I would like to know is, do the shine redas my current 156 ones do and if not is it just a case of swapping bulbs over, and does the mileometer takes its reading from the ecu so will reset to current milage or shall I take a reading of...
  15. Is it possible to remove dials from a FL 156 centre console?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm thinking about getting the silver centre console plastics on my car liquid vinyl dipped. The process requires the bit being dipped to be split from anything not being dipped. Is it possible to remove the dials and buttons from a facelift 156 climate control panel so the silver plastic can be...

  17. Replaed heater control unit - now dials won't fit properly

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, The heater in my 156 had become very poor and the auto windcreen clear had stopped working. Also when the fans were on it was kind of blowing in 'pulses', rather than a steady stream. So, after reading up on the problem I ordered second hand heater control unit from a breaker and...
  18. Centre console and dials bulb issues

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a facelift 156 2.4 JTD and have an ongoing issue that I feel needs sorting now as it's becoming irritating. Occasionally the tachometer, speedo, and centre console lights will all turn off (or flicker), and will only come back on if I give the top of the dash a thump. Obviously this is...
