  1. What is the easiest way to force engine ECU to throw a fault code?

    Alfa Giulietta
    I suspect engine ECU is suppressing DTCs. Tried unplugging boost sensor, but that did not cause any error, ECU was showing 200mbars of boost pressure. Disconnecting the throttle body made the car idle rough, but still no fault code in the engine module, plenty of codes in every other module...

  3. yay. christmas is here. the morons are out in force.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Looked at the front of my car today, found that the front bumper has been clouted and is now split. No note, no indication of who it was. Probably some muppet who either has no insurance or no morals. Took me long enough to find a bumper in the right colour when i changed it from the battered...
  4. How to Force 159 DPF Regen

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    What Kit to Force 159 DPF Regen? Ok, I realise that from the thread title, most of you will have said, here we go again :rolleyes:, but, this request is a wee bit different: Because practically all my journeys in my 159jtdm not being a long enough trip to keep engine revs high enough for long...
  5. DPF Clogged - Can't Force a Regen

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I tried to force a regen tonight but it failed - "filter clogged". The differential pressure sensor is 1250mBar when the engine is running. The fault codes are P1206 - clean or replace particle filter - signal high P2455 - Differential pressure sensor signal - invalid signal I wonder if the...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    On Saturday, in a rare moment of relaxation, I sat down to watch a film on the TV. It was "The Empire Strikes Back". I must be the only person in the world not to have seen it before. Anyhow, to get to the point. I reckon that the 166 Sporto is the Millennium Falcon. A great ship. Impressive...
  7. Force B&M media rebuild

    ICE & Blue&Me
    Is there an easy way to force a rebuild of a USB pen drive? I added a few albums but they wouldn't show up tried several way to make it do a rebuild but no good, in the end I put different drive in then swapped it back to the original which worked. You would have thought there'd be an option in...
  8. Should I force regen?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I was looking at my parking sensors using fiat ecu scan. While doing this I checked the status of my dpf. It said normal clogging and was 88% clogged. The car is used mostly for short journeys so I am wondering if it would be prudent to force a regen based upon that level of clogging? Cheers
  9. 166, have to force it into gears....

    Republic of Ireland
    guys, my manual 166 is causing me a bit of concern, she's (at times) having to be forced into gear, & i think (or i could just be going mad) that the clutch pedal has lost some height, seems to be sitting lower than normal. Until she's warm i'm literally forcing the car into gears, its not...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    After returning from a 2 weeks holiday when I've left my 147 manual in 1st gear and handbrake (for good practice I'd think), now I wonder if I've made such mistake as now the gear lever becomes very sticky...:confused: I can still engage all gears in working order but it is hard work and with...
  17. Original Box - for the force feed of air on standard air filter.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Ok as we know the standard airfilter for the 156 in 2001 (and other years) has a force feed of air, from the lower grill (on the side) at the front, up a tube and into a box containing a big air filter. When i had my K&N air filter put on obviously i was left with the big box container which the...
