    Alfa Giulietta
    Can anyone offer advise / help. Recently acquired 2015 Alfa Giulietta. All good. Only issue is that the dashboard outside temp gauge continiously reads 0 degrees C. It is illuminated both on the dash behind steering wheel and on the larger screen above the radio, just reads zero. Anyone know...
  2. Alfa 159 Turbo Gauge

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, My Alfa 159 turbo gauge reads 0 when at idle with engine cold, but when engine is warm, the gauge is not reading 0 at idle, it reads a little bit more than 0, not much, just a bit. Is that normal? I guess it was reading 0 before removing EGR electronically on the car. MAP is new also...

    So the temp gauge mainly shows 90C, but it can suddenly in seconds jump to 120C, am i looking for the gearbox to engine earth trouble? I can find the gearbox end, but where is the other end?

  5. Petrol gauge recall V84 ?

    Alfa Giulia
    From USA forum, Macgeek : Published today, for incorrect fuel level readings in specific conditions. The specific conditions include being parked on a grade of more than 10 degrees, staying in that position for a long enough period of time (approx. 30 minutes), and having a tank filled between...
  6. Alfa 156 jtd fuel gauge behaviour?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I would be very grateful if some of the 156 jtd facelift owners would check for me: Does their fuel gauge needle jumps to full for a split second once the key is turned and then stabilizes on correct level; And Does the needle stay hovering slightly above 0 at key off but after few seconds...
  7. Fuel Gauge Stuck

    Alfa Giulia
    I filled up from about 1/4 tank and now the gauge is stuck on full ? (after about 100 miles of driving). Tried a battery disconnect but no joy. Any ideas?
  8. Best/Accurate Tyre Pressure Gauge

    General Motoring Discussion
    Having been told, after the service, that the Giulietta's tyre pressures were out and that they had been reset to what I thought I had them set to I think my old cheapo gauge needs replacing. Can AOers suggest a suitable, reasonably accurate, tyre pressure gauge that won't break the bank and is...
  9. Fuel gauge stops half way, but empty light works okay.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    It stops at half way down. The fuel level warning light comes on and it fills all the way back up. So one bit works. When I disconnect the sender the warning light comes on, but the gauge sits at half way. It shows just under full after 80 miles and then around a quarter after 180. Grounding...
  10. 156 GTA Temp Gauge Puzzle

    Alfa GTA
    Hi chaps. Question for you all regarding the running temp of a 156 GTA. The gauge seems to read about 78ish when driving at motorway speeds (or even 40+ mph) It sits at 90 whilst doodling along at 10 to 20ish And, if stuck in traffic, it goes up to 95ish, fans cut in and it cools again to...
  11. Turbo gauge and water leak

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, new to the forum just picked up a 1.9 159 and hoping you chaps can give me some advice please! So firstly, the turbo gauge when at idle sits at 0.2 boost not on zero. It seems to work when driving thought not sure if accuracy but will never sit back at zero which makes me wonder whether...

  13. Fuel tank & gauge reading?

    Alfa Stelvio
    What are others experiences here? I brimmed the tank local to the dealer on collection with 15m on the clock, it took 30 odd litres of diesel from its indicated 1/2 full reading, which seemed about right. I've done 386m since and today with 45m left on the range, its boinging at me to refuel...
  14. Fuel gauge reads high.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    It doesn't go below half way. The warning light comes on just before half way. So it seems to me the gauge shows a half a tank offset. Do I first start looking at the fuel tank end or the gauge end? Or is it summat else entirely?
  15. Alfa romeo 156 GTA oil Temperature gauge in the normal 156

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have a 156 3.0 swap with the facelift interior and thought about the Oil temperature inside the Bordcomputer in the GTA . The Oil sensor is already fitted because I have the housing from a 3.2 engine. Is it possible to get this feature working in a normal 156 ? Because I like OEM things more...
  16. Battery gauge on UConnect

    Alfa Giulietta
    The more gadgets the more I get distracted while driving, but I've noticed in the last week that the battery has fluctuated up and down between 75% and 66% - for no apparent reason. Is this normal? The drive was exactly the same commute, weather was similar....? The battery does appear to...
  17. Outside temperature gauge reading

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    All, I have been out and about in the Brera today, and for some reason the outside temperature gauge reading that is displayed on the dashboard is varying between 31 and 32 degrees centigrade. Well it`s March in the UK, and it is clearly not that hot, so does anyone have any ideas of what could...
  18. 1200 miles in, first problem, fuel gauge not working

    Alfa Giulia
    Hello guys, anyone had the following issue. Fuel light came on this morning so filled up as normal. Headed off and noticed that the fuel gauge was still showing empty! Stopped at another station to try and put more fuel in (just in case there'd been an issue at the first pump), unable to get...

    Alfa Giulietta
    Tonight I was driving in the dark and I noticed the white light of the fuel gauge was out, however the needle is still illuminated in red, has anyone else had this and is it a diy fix?
  20. [Brera 06 200hp] Factory Boost gauge re-scale

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Hello ! First post here. I was wondering if is possible to re-scale the factory boost gauge in the cluster. I enjoy thinkering with the ECU and i think i have found something. I have found in the EDC16C39 damos the boost pressure "scaling" and "offset" for Canbus / Diagnostic / DSM (??) I...
