  1. Alfa romeo 159 SW 8V 88kw heater display problem

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello, I would like to ask for advice. A week ago, after washing the car interior and exterior, I found that my heating display shows nothing but everything works. The buttons work as well as the heating and the display is also backlit, but it does not show anything when I raise and lower the...
  2. Cabin Heater / Engine Temp

    Alfa Stelvio
    Couple of quick questions to placate my curiosity regarding the heater. Is the cabin heater supplemented with an electric heat source or is it just very effective? I've noticed hot air heat coming from the heater after only a few hundred yards of travel from startup which is a good thing...

  4. 916 heater constantly blowing hot.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have a '99 lusso 2.0 TS with the auto climate control that only blows hot air. I have used the Multiscan software and detected that the sensor in the wing mirror had failed through corrosion. I have changed the sensor and now the Multiscan indicates the correct temperature and no errors. It...

  6. 147 / GT 3.2 V6 Heater hose replacement

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Has anyone replaced these? I have a leak in one and will try to replace both. It looks like an absolute pig of a job on the V6 engine. You can hardly see the hose clamps on the heater core pipes at the firewall let alone get a tool on them. Maybe it's easier to pull out the heater core from...

  8. How long for heater to kick in?

    Alfa Giulietta
    Mine seems really slow... Its still below freezing at this time of year when I leave for work, and waiting the best part of 10 minutes for the heater to fire up is chilly! I also have an old Reno Megane 2 with climate control and it’s fan kicks in and starts blowing warm air inside 2-3 minutes...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi everyone - I'm finally getting round to repairing the A/C on my car (blowing hot air since I first bought her and recycle function has been 'clicking') and need to source a heater flap motor / actuator. I've tried to find the exact part reference number via EPer but to no avail so far (I have...

  12. Loud Heater Tap Noise at High Revs

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've posted before on this but was totally in the dark over the origin of the noise, as was everyone else. I tried plenty of things, to no avail, but I think I might now have the answer and as such, wondered if anyone else had encountered this problem. On my phase 1 GTV I have located a shrill...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hey all, I've been meaning to remove my interior fan resistor for a while as my fans got stuck on full blast before Xmas even with the engine off. Finally got around to doing it over Easter, managed to get it out after reading other topics on the subject. But I cannot seem to get the...

  16. Heater Matrix Flush.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello all, I'd like to attempt flushing the heater matrix on my Gtv Cup - from inside the engine bay I can see the 2 pipes that go into the bulkhead. The pipe clips nearest the bulkhead seem a bit awkward to access so I was wondering if I could simply detach the pipes from the thermostat...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Does anyone know how to test the heater resistor (pictured below) with a multimeter? I've got the resistances from this thread but am unsure how to measure using a multimeter.
  20. Heater and power sockets not working

    Alfa Giulietta
    Last week I fitted a dashcam to my G using a fuse tap into F31 as suggested elsewhere on here. It may be a coincidence, but since then my heater and fan don't work, and today I noticed that the power socket by the handbrake and also the one in the boot don't work. I'm puzzled as their fuses are...
