  1. Bluetooth keeps disconnecting

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, just checking if anyone has connected their phone via Bluetooth but after maybe 5 or 10 minutes of driving it then disconnects? Really frustrating as I have to keep pairing it.
  2. Disconnecting the battery consequences

    Alfa Giulietta
    If I disconnect my battery to get better access to change a headlight bulb will I run into any problems with radio codes or warning lights etc? I've got a 2017 TCT Veloce. I could probably managed it without taking the battery out but it'll be a lot easier with it out of the way. I've searched...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello, I have a problem with the bluetooth connection lately (a couple of weeks), it is disconnecting after a few minutes when I'm speaking on the phone, then I can't connect the phone because I can't see blue&me on the phone bluetooth settings active.

    Not run my 159 for couple of weeks, battery totally flat. I had to open the car with manual key (so presumably alarm is still active). As soon as I disconnect negative (to charge battery) off goes the alarm. Is there a specific fuse/relay to disconnect it ... or what? So far so good...
  6. Fault codes after disconnecting battery

    Alfa Giulietta
    I had to disconnect my battery today, so that I could remove it to gain access to change the passenger side headlight bulb. The bulb access was a nightmare with the metal clip falling into the undertray, generally compounded by a lack of access. Anyway on connecting the battery back up I have...
  7. Disconnecting Battery

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, If I disconnect the battery for a few hours will the sound system require a code on my 159 Lusso. I don't have the code and I understand Alfa charge to supply it so I'd rather get that from a dealership before I disconnect the battery if it is going to be required. I read somewhere it...
  8. Disconnecting bowden cable

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Help! I'm in the middle of dismantling my passenger door, and the guides on here are very helpful up to where they say "disconnect the bowden cable". How?? :confused: It clips into the inside of the door handle in a way that seems to either need a special tool to remove, or else a lot of brute...
  9. Resetting MiTo ECU by disconnecting battery?

    Alfa MiTo
    Car is 135MA with TCT gearbox. I've recently fitted a K&N panel filter (direct replacement - slots in place of the OEM paper filter in the airbox). The lower restriction means the car makes slightly more power at low throttle settings. Now, during shifting, the gearbox takes over the throttle...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Am going to disconnect negative terminal of battery (as suggested on other forum:tut:!!!) to see if this resolves some issues with the Blue & (Sh*ttin')Me. Once disconnected and reconnected after 30 minutes what issues will this present, if any, aside from the obvious resetting date and time...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Now I'm not afraid to post,thought I would ask about another problem... I had issues with running and poor idle and fuel consumption. Fitted a new MAF all beit a cheap ebay item. Car worked a treat until I had to disconnect it to fit a new thermostat ( purely because it was in the way) Since...
  13. Disconnecting boot opening switch in glovebox

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Simply opening my glove-box pings the boot release. Annoying if you are on the move and irritating if you forget to close as the alarm goes off. :mad: It might be a case of adjustment, but I thought I'd just disconnect and use the key for the odd occasion when I might use the boot. Still a...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    is it harmful to disconnect the swirl flap actuator and run the car with the swirl flaps always in the default position? IE having the actuator think all is well by flapping about not connected to the swirl rod?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi folks, I was playing with the Alfa 156 2.4 JTD 10v at the weekend as the fans weren't coming on I thought I would perform some tests. Reading on some of the threads here I noticed that the fans should come on if I disconnected the temp sensor, so I did, and sure enough fans came on. Great...
  16. Help: Disconnecting Hydraulic Clutch Union

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hello All, I decided today to take the gearbox out of my spider to send it off for a rebuild. I have got most of the way there but can't for the life of me figure out how to disconnect the hydraulic clutch union just next to the cross member behind the sump. I think the bolt/collar is probably...

    I have finally got the FiatECUscan application to connect to my 156 2.0 TS ECU, trouble is the connection only stays up for about a minute at the most and then disconnects. This happens continuously I have only got the free version of FiatECUscan and I am running it in a Windows XP virtual...

    Hi everyone, after 334 tkm the clutch has decided to pack up and I'm trying to get the gear box off to take a closer look and slowly getting there. But.. I guess it should not be to hard to work out how to disconnect gear cable ends from the pivot/shaft on the box but I just can't get it. It...
