  1. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Legends, I hit a pothole on a single lane, front suspension bottomed out and scrapped the undertray, now the horn doesn't work when the headlights are on, the indicator relay flashes fast and the drivers side headlight is dim and playing up, see pics. 1st pic is low beam, note dim on drivers...
  2. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, waking the spider up after the winter and it won't start, even off another working cars battery. The solenoid clicks but the starter initially turned slowly but then no longer turns. Added to thus the lights do not come onbut indicators do, windows go up and down, blower works but...
  3. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    A week or so ago I started having issues with the windows on my Spider not auto dropping and not working at all, predominately on the passenger side. A charge of the battery improved things as did the end of the cold weather. I bought and fitted a new 70Ah Varta battery and all seemed fine...
  4. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I drove the Spider for the first time in about a week yesterday. First problem; the air bag light has come on even though I haven’t moved the seats etc. Second problem was the carpet behind the passenger seat was absolutely soaking but nowhere else. I am guessing the two are related and once it...
  5. Alfa Giulietta
    After having my Alfa (2010 1.4 Multi-Air TB) for 18 months now with no real issues, over the last few days I've had a couple of warnings on the dash and misfiring. Thursday morning I got a brake pad warning light (pads and disks were changed in January). Anyway, that went away when I next...
  6. Alfa Giulietta
    Picked up a new to me 2011 Giuletta QV today, lovely vehicle. Connected my iPhone 7+ to the audio system and was able to make & receive calls via bluetooth. Also connected a cable to the USB port and was able to connect to the iPhone and play the stored music. Anyway about 6hrs into the 11hr...
  7. Alfa Giulia
    So now on top of the passenger door mirror occasionally failing to fully extend electrically, i had a interesting moment on the motorway. Clicked to flick through the menus on the dash, only for her to do an electrical reboot, just as if i had only just turned on the ignition. Engine continued...
  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all. Quick question regarding my Alfa GT 1.9jtd. I know there are some great stories about low batteries throwing up all kinds of random warnings but can a blown stop light do the same? I didn't realise my brake light had blown and was getting constant and repetitive warnings of "blown...
  9. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Couple of weeks ago reversing lights on permanently.( had been raining ) Then not coming on at all. Typical Alfa repair parked it overnight and all back to working again. Today went for a good long drive to find late on that no brake lights working ( neither in cluster or the one in rear...
  10. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Took the Alfetta for an MOT today. Windscreen Washers decided not to work, as did the horn and a headlamp. Question, when I looked for the horn - behind the light, it didn't seem to be there. martin, do you recall seeing it when we did the fog lamp? Also keeps blowing a fuse as soon as I put the...

    I have a 56 plate Brera which has its fair share of electrical gremlins....Please Help if you can 1. Heater fan. Currently not working. It happened last winter and then it started again after a few months then stopped again. Any ideas what that might be? Pain in the winter as you can imagine...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So after a 2 half year break I'm an Alfa owner again, I managed to pick up a really nice low mileage 06 reg 147. This was great and I was driving around with a smile again, until the problem happened!!! rRight the problem... on the display the following errors come up rear no plate light out...
  13. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Has anyone else experienced a possessed aircon? I have noticed recently the recirculate turns itself on and off. It switches the A light on the button on and off. Also if I have it at its lowest (1 little bar on display) just for clearing window when driving, sometimes intermittently it turns...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, It looks like I'm not the first person to have this sort of trouble with their 147, but I'm hoping someone can give me some specific knowledge on the fault ... My 147 was dead. It's been standing for over a year. It has been run during that time, but the battery has gone flat a few...

    It's been a while since I last posted here, health issues and busy life has held back progress on my 164. I was ready to run the car to a local specialist for 4 wheel alignment then MOT when I've found that the following have stopped working... Lights front & rear, turn signals, rear windows...
  18. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Guys GTV 3.0 V6 24V Ph2 I think I got electric gremlins somewhere. Not sure where to start looking first. Went out for a spin yesterday as it was a nice day. I was almost home when they started. My radio switched off first. Then the engine cut out for a second but it kept going albeit...
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've lived with the GT windows not working properly for some time now. It started out with the windows stepping, cured by the usual up for 10 secs, down for 10 secs routine. Then it got to the stage where the passenger window works but the driver's window doesn't, except for when it sometimes...
  20. Alfa Giulietta
    Yesterday evening I was driving along the motorway with the cruise control set at 70mph when the car started to lose speed and the message "cruise control off" appeared on the dash display and the green icon had disappeared. I checked the control stalk and it was still turned to on. Turning...
