  1. Fans not running when ac is on

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Trying to solve an issue with the ac. Been fine since re-gassing but now it’s stopped going cold. Compressor still engages but I’ve noticed the fans don’t run. Check with multiscan, no codes, both hi and low speeds run when actuated so I assume relays are ok as I can here them. Pulled the...
  2. What Do BMW Fans Think About Alfa Romeo?

    General Alfa Discussion
    We decided to answer that question at Bimmerfest, the world’s largest private BMW owners gathering, where Alfa Romeo sponsored the autocross event. With both the Giulia sedan and Stelvio SUV available for Bimmerfest attendees to try out, hear what they had to say after their test drive...
  3. Phase 1 V6 Cooling Fans - Duration

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Looking for some advise please gang? Both fan speeds on my GTV kick in at the correct temperatures, but they only stay on for a matter of seconds. This means that the low speed fans never get a chance to do their job so the temperature rises to the point where the high speed fans kick in, but...

  5. Noisy Heater Fans!

    Alfa Giulietta
    I picked up my new Giulietta Cloverleaf today... I checked absolutely everything before I bought it - apart from the heater fans! They work just fine and there isn't a problem with the a/c, but man do they make a racket when they're turned up! I've just tried to use them to demist the...
  6. Spider cooling fans always on

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, Just looking for a bit of advice/confirmation. My 2002 Spider 3.0 V6 has its cooling fans running flat out all the time. It also has the red light in the temp gauge on (maybe faintly), but the temperature rarely gets up to 50. Gauge appears to work as after a long drive the temp will...
  7. Hi fans of all things Alfa

    Introduce Yourself
    Although presently enjoying a diesel GT, I am happy to find the marque has lost none of its character or style,(I had a left hand drive '74 spider years ago). Nice to find when so many modern cars are so dull and bland.
  8. GT fog lights come on when fans running

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, After some advice here. My GT V6 has come back from having a new clutch fitted and it drives brilliantly now, really nice light and smooth clutch. However..... When I pulled up outside the house my wife said 'Your lights are on'. Had a look and the front fog lights were on (no other...

  10. Loud vent fans

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, Since I bought the car, I noticed when I turn the engine on every morning/afternoon, climate control sets the fans to 2nd from last setting which makes them really, really loud. When someone's in my car, I need to manually turn the fans down as talking is impossible. The fans turn down...
  11. Dual Fans - 33

    Alfa 33, Sud & Sprint
    Dear Friends, There were many posts in this forum for hot running 33s and various solutions discussed about improving the cooling of the engine. There was a dual fan setup on a YouTube video but that car has no AC condenser in front like mine. So I hope this will help anyone who is looking to...

  14. Cooling Fans 1st stage not kicking in

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I need a bit of advice here please. The car is a CF3 24v V6 Spider; the cooling fan does not come on for the 1st stage but both fans kick in together on the 2nd stage. I have changed the resistor and that has not rectified the fault. I am guessing, therefore, that it could be either the relay...
  15. Unplugged connector on back of radiator fans

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all! I've just got my first Alfa, and I'm loving it so far. Looking under the bonnet today I noticed a connector with nothing plugged into it on the back of the radiator fans near-side. Does anybody know what this is / what should be plugged into it? I can't see any loose wires anywhere...
  16. Climate Control - No Fans

    Alfa Giulietta
    Evening, I've got a 2013 G with 25k on the clock, 10 days out of manufacturer warranty. Luckily it still has dealer one for another 9 months. Today I got in the car, went to put the fan on to find that they no longer work. I can hear the aircon unit click on when it should be cooling and click...
  17. Cooling fans

    Alfa GTA
    Can someone please check my understanding concerning the fans: 1) Somewhere around 95 degrees or so both fans should come on at low speed 2) Somewhere around 100 degrees or so both fans should come on at high speed If so, my driver side fan seems to be working fine, but my passenger side fan...

  20. GT V6 engine fans fuses location.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Need to locate the fuses in my 2005 GT V6 for the two stage engine cooling fans. Have had a look in the handbook but as far as I can see the fuse diagrams are only for the Jtd and the 2.0 petrol as the fuse box due to the physical size of the engine in the engine bay is a completely different...
