    Hi, One of the first things I did when I got my 156 9 years ago was to disable the annoying beeps when you lock the car.

  13. Disabling the volumetric alarm sensors on 159....

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Anyboy tried this? The manual says it can be done by pressing the overhead button "within one minute after instrument panel turning off". Apparently, the "button led will turn on". On my car, when pressed, the button led flashes for 3 or 4 seconds before going off - I guess it's not supposed to...

    Can this be easily done? It's getting to that time of year again when the windscreen can need need washing every few minutes, and I resent lobbing loads of water over the headlights (for little benefit with no wipers!) as it uses the water up in no time and just puts streaks all over the car...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm slowly getting used to my new baby and starting to find thing I used to take for granted on Mercs/Audis. I do a fair few ferry crosings and generally switch the alarm of to avoid issues at the other end. Is there a way of doing this on my 2005 147. I've read the manual but this doesn't...
