    I've just changed the nearside dip beam bulb. Not being in possession of very small hands and/or double jointed wrists I took the battery out to do this. Now I have a number of warnings coming up when the ignition is switched on - VDC unavailable, Steering correction unavailable etc. I picked...

    Once I source my new battery I will be changing it myself. Apart from the radio code & steering reset what other problems will disconnecting the battery cause. By the way where will I find the radio code? Looked in all the books I have for it but couldn't find. Can u source it from some where...

    I disconnected the battery to charge it up after a few weeks standing in the garage. when reconnected it resulted in the windows not topping out..sorted with advice on here by holding button fully down for 10 secs and then up for 10 secs. The other prob is that the passenger door will not...

    So due to the cold and not using the car much recently, me and the family piled into it yesterday, and it wouldn't start. Ended up walking, and putting the battery on charge. Thing is, it was pretty fiddly getting the battery out. In fact, I'm not sure I needed to disconnect as much as I did -...

    I'm just trying to disconnect the cables from the gearbox. They have swivel type joints onto a ball that is connected to the gearbox selection mechanism. The front one faces down and prised off easily but the rear one that faces forward doesn't look like it is made to come off in this way as it...

    A thought just struck me whilst reading some threads. My 56 plate Brera 2.2 is going to have a new audio headunit installed next week. One assumes that the installers will disconnect the battery for the work. If they do, is there anything that might happen which I should be aware of? I have a...
  8. ICE & Blue&Me
    Does anyone know if disconnecting the battery (in order to apply an external charge during the current demanding weather conditions) will affect the phone pairing on Blue & Me, or affect it in any other way?

    Hi all, Last year when I bought my 156 it ran fine and there were repairs that required the battery being disconnected, though when we connected it again, the car wouldnt start, (would turn but not start). Toed the car to my dealer and he informed me that i needed a new ECU. :mad: SO... thats...

    Hi, I have a split CV boot at the hub end on the passenger side of my Sprint (grease splatterred all over). I have a replacement CV boot kit (good ol ebay) which I would like to fit myself. My question is, can the driveshaft be disconnected at the hub end only enabling the old boot to be slid...
  11. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hey all, I did do a search, but cannot find an answer here and I need help quickly! I need to unplug my alarm. As the damn key is broken with the alarm armed. Everytime I go near the car the alarm goes off. You would think there would be some sense to the alarm being disarmed when the key is...

    Can Anyone Tell Me Is It Safe To Disconnect My Battery For A Long Period As I Am Going To Remove My Engine And Try And Find A New One, The Key Transponder Seems To Unlock The Doors Etc So I Assume The Memory Will Not Be Disturbed And The Ecu Will Remain Stable?
  14. Alfa 155
    Hi, I have a 2.0 16v 97´ (motronic 2.10.4) which is suffering from flat spot between 2k-3k RPM on light pedal. I decided to disconnect the lambda probe to test if any better (it improved considerably) but for my surprise the fault light of the injection did not illuminate even after a 20 minute...
