  1. 159SW self unlocks and opens windows - suggestions?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello Today my breakfast was interrupted by my neighbor knocking on my door, telling me my car (2008 159SW) has all windows open. I rushed outside, and sure enough, car was unlocked and all windows fully open. I made sure nothing was stolen, closed windows and locked the car (with remote). After...

  3. Alfa gt window winder electronics connector

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Bad connection in this white connector that powers the window motor. High current has deteriorated the contacts so i need to get a new one. Does anyone know what type of connector this is or where i can get one, perhaps the part number from Alfa, although i suspect they only sell the whole door...

  5. Key issue - paired electronics, odd mechanics

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Had the 159 for going on 3 years now, and still have both keys, which I swap every 6 months or so because... well I don’t know, just because. Whatever,... they both work fine for remote unlocking, opening the boot, and running the car. However I noticed a few weeks ago that the tang of the key...
  6. All electronics fail ?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi everyone. Just found this forum today after somewhat of a shock with my 2012 Giulietta 2.0 JTD. When I turn the ignition key, it immediately starts blinking in the Fuel logo, a steering wheel appears where the "DNA" logo would usually be - only to be replaced by an airbag warning soon after...
  7. Those slapdash German electronics!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I just noticed that the centre dash display (above the temp/clock/fuel gauges) on my 156 today reads "Wed 2 Feb". But today is a Tuesday! I checked and the date is definitely set to 02-02-2016 so it didn't jump to a wrong year. It's a Bosch unit, as far as I know. Germans... :devious: :lol...
  8. New Alfa 147 2.0 Selespeed Owner falling out with Italian Electronics

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I have recently bought a 2001, 2.0 Selespeed which I absolutely love! Problem is the cursed Selespeed gearbox which is more temperamental than a woman, no offence meant! On starting it randomly decides now to select gear, and sometime start at all. Any help appreciated as really don't want...
  9. 156 Engine swap - electronics / Code

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Í have a 156 (V6 motor), and had the engine from another one fitted, along with the ECU and associated components. The original had a Spitronics fitted and I have never set my eyes on bigger rubbish than that, nor experienced weaker service and product back-up from anyone. So, chucked it and...

  12. Trip meter gone, help!

    Alfa GTA
    I was driving just now, everything seems OK, it was a rainy day too. Stopped the car to pick up my wife. Started the car and the trip meter just gone. I don't use the trip meter that much but it's always a nice novelty. What could trigger the problem? I suspect a blown fuse or worse water seeped...
  13. Alfa 147 remote central locking locks, but doens't unlock

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, As the title says, my remote central locking will lock the car, but won't unlock (I have to use the key which sets the alarm off until I place the key in the ignition). Does anyone know why this might happen? The boot open button on the key works fine as well. Cheers
  14. caprioglio Electronics DRL's

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Not sure if anyone has heard of these guys, but found a post about them and their DRLs, with a set for the 159, not even sure if they sell them, but look pretty cool (though not sure if they would interupt the light pattern...

    Alfa GTA
    Spent 2 hours chasing drivers curtain airbag fault code. Only to find that the drivers side connection was on the passenger side! Still at least every connection in the airbag system has been checked and wd40'd!!

  17. 156 electronics restarting

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I drive an Alfa 156 2.5L V6 and recently the electronics have been restarting, at least I think that's what they are doing. The car jolts forward a bit similar to what would happen if the car was stationary in first gear and you take your foot clean off the clutch to stall it. All the...
  18. Anyone good with micro electronics?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi there, my 156 digital climate control panel has never worked on the drivers side. Turning the knob doesn't change temp. I assumed it was shot, today for about a minute it worked! So I assume something's wrong with the guts of the unit or the sensor on the adjuster wheel. Anyone fancy fixing...
  19. Electronics failed, headlamps to blame??

    Alfa MiTo
    Last night I was driving down the A21 at 1am and got a bleep alert. It said that the power steering had failed, then the whole instrument panel went completely dark and the power steering had indeed failed as it was a bugger to steer the car. The radio was still working, car was driving fine...
  20. CF2 3.0 24v injector electronics

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Any known issues with these? I have a chronic but intermittent misfire on my GTV, been to AlfaTune for diagnosis a while back and it came up on the diagnostic machine as many faults on all injectors. Sort of rules out MAF I guess. Could it possibly be the injectors themselves that are faulty...
