    My wife and i have both recently noticed the ICS screen occasionally 'blinks' when the headlights are on. It is only for a split second, but is as if the screen briefly goes to non headlight on mode, and then back. I would be interested to know if anybody else has experienced this, and if it may...

    The dealer selling me the 166 2 litre says he is having the ICS code reset by an Alfa main dealer, although the car is driveable. Is there anything I should look out for or any checks I should ask him to do to make sure everything is working perfectly?

    what does it do? Absolutely nothing? Make me drive like a rep?

    All of a sudden I have this message on my ICS telling me I have a "Momentary aircon fault" :eek: but forget the momentarty bit...It doesn't work at all. I go to CLIMA and its all gone dead. I will press any of the ECON, temperture etc. and nothing. Has anybody had this issue and resolved it?

    Greetings all fellow 166 owners with no tunes, no trip computer, no phone (if you're lucky!) and no idea what temperature it is in or out of the car! Well I've had some fun and games over the last few days, after disconnecting my battery to reset the ECU (which cured my dodgy tickover issue a...

    Some time back, I recall there was talk on the forum of a device to allow the control of an MP3 player via the ICS unit in a 166. What happened to that? Is it now available or still in development?

    Have you ever tried connecting your mobile to built in mobile phone and speakers using them like hands free? Is it possible to get some kind of bluetooth adapter? Because as a car phone it is worthless for me..

    Thanks to the earlier contributors who gave good instructions on how to get the ICS out of the dash. I have hit a problem in that I am unable to get the climate control plug detached from the unit, I don't want to force it. Any suggestions?

    Hi, I have lost the code to my ICS unit in my Alfo Romeo 166, year 2000. I am looking to remove the ICS unit completely to find out the serial number from the back of it in order to retrieve code from dealer. Can you advise on how to do this? I dont want to cause any cosmetic damage to the...

    I have finally obtained the correct ICS code for my 166! I tried contacting Alfa main dealers but they said my car was not on the UK register as it was probably an imoport (I had purchased it second hand without a code card). The dealer claimed to have sent the serial number to Siemens/Becker...

    From my last tank of fuel the ICS stated 25 odd to the gallon. I filled up and decided to check consumption the old way (Habit!) - I worked it out as 22 odd MPG. My method should be accurate - I always fill up until pump cuts out, I don't try to force any more in so should be filling back to...

    I was begining to think controls for the ICS on the steering wheel were a myth however I have found a picture of a facelift car in Germany with these controls was this just done on the facelift cars or was it an option not available in this country does anyone know if the wiring is likely to be...

    I'm in the process of buying a 166 with the NAV+ system installed, when I test drove it the code was not entered so I was unable to check most of the functions. The dealer has now sourced the code and the radio and phone is working fine, but he says he is awaiting ANOTHER code (from Italy!) to...
