    Hi all, Not sure how to describe what I’m looking for other than using photos. probably why I’m finding an inter web and forum search not coming up with it… It’s the metal female part that I’m trying to un-crimp and it’s very difficult and has bent the rest of it a bit.. It’s off the...
  2. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Whenever I plug in MES I get an error code about the electronic throttle. It's always a stored code. The car seems to drive OK and the throttle seems to work fine. This is the first car I've had without a throttle cable so it's new technology to me! Is this a known issue? What components...

    I have a 156 2.0 TS Lusso key and dedicated electronic kit and wondered if it could be used on a 156 TS Selespeed?
  5. Alfa Giulia
    Anyone know how to disengage the parking brake when it won't do from the centre switch or by selecting Drive and accelerating away? Since car just broke down (low fuel warning light 3/4 mile before just running out completely then cutting out - so refueled via recovery truck rescue!), it'll now...

    Hi All, I currently use Multiecuscan 4.0 with the green and red leads to generally interrogate the system and more to reset airbag as this is failure for mot's. However i now have a problem with the electronic hood, flashing light for 10 seconds when starting and then no response. The hood...

    Does anyone know what circuit fuse F-11 supports? I've had this fuse blow with increasing regularity which results in the ECU putting the engine into limp mode. Also accompanying this is the usual gaggle of failure messages on the dash, ASR, hill holder etc. Using AlfaOBD shows up a long list...
  8. Alfa Giulietta
    Just been searching around the internet out of curiosity and came across the ability of some cars to do an electronic throttle reset. Apparently the electronic throttle holds a memory of your driving and adpts the throttle to suit. To me that sounds abit unrealistic because what happens if you...

    Just swapped the internals.over from.my old key to a new key case. I can lock and unlock the car but then get the above error message when I try starting the car. Any thoughts? Thanks

    whilst i have sorted the audio, seating controls, and some of the heating issues i still have a couple of electronic issues on my 164 which have me stumped which i indirectly mentioned on another thread which i will probably delete as its irrelevant now. if i plug my courtesy light 7.5 amp fuse...
  11. Alfa MiTo
    I have an MQV, i need advice on the suspension. I love the way the car handles but I drive an odd 4 different cars. I must say the Mito have forced me to change the route going. The crashy sound i get when i drive on not so good road surfaces. Thought shocks had given up so i quoted for new...
  12. Alfa Giulietta
    Just thought I'd share the solution to a problem I just experience. I had just about every system flash up on the dash as failed. It knocked my abs of and DNA switch to name two. When I searched the problem online I read of expensive fixes in relation to failed steering position sensors etc. So...
  13. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Good morning everyone. I recently purchased a Silver 1999 GTV V6 and loving it so far. Today I found a mystery box hidden behind the charcoal canister mounting bracket. It does not look standard, It has an inline fuse going to the box, I have never seen one for sale or mentioned during my...

    It's been a roaring success apparently: Untaxed UK vehicles double after paper tax disc abolished - BBC News They've doubled the number of untaxed cars on the road in a matter of months! :thumbs:
  17. Alfa Giulietta
    Depending on which review you read of the GQV, either the electronic Q2 diff uses a mechanical Q2 diff enhanced by the braking system, or there is no limited slip Q2 diff fitted, just an electronic simulation using the braking system to force drive to the outside wheel if the inner starts to...
  18. Alfa Giulietta
    My steering feels slightly lose when encountering rough road surfaces or speed bumps etc. Having test driven the car a mechanic has said to me that it could be something to do with the software module which runs the electronic power steering; requiring a re boot or some sort of upgrade! He said...

    Sorting out final bits before road test tomorrow (if it ever stops raining) Not 100% happy with state of cables surrounding an electronic ignition module. Distributor has no points but vacuum/spring advance. I think it is an Intermotor XE15 wired to the HT coil with long lead to distributor. It...
  20. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Help ! The electric boot lock mechanism on my Spider (946) has failed, and still won't work with a new replacement solenoid. My local mechanic (who I'd trust with my life) found an error code B1019 (Boot opening relay short circuit to ground), but when this was checked & cleared, the error code...
