  1. ICS,radio codes and heater controls.

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Right folks as I have now got the lost key situation sorted hopefully I need to reprogram the ICS but do not have a code though I did find a printout with a four digit radio code on it on the paperwork with the car. I put the digits in and each one said 'correct' but after the final number...
  2. ICS has gone.

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi All! I bought my Alfa two months ago, it has ICS which is connected with Navi, DSP, and CD Changer systems. From time to time after engine start radio was working but there was no sound in speakers. I could change CD, or switch for radio - everything was working but there wasn't sound. And...
  3. No sound from ICS when engine is running???

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I've finally got to fully connect the replacement ICS in my 166. There's a brand new battery and I fitted a good alternator as the old one wasn't charging. I got the correct code and the ICS works in all modes once the engine is off. Whether the key is out, or in any position including ignition...
  4. Date/time on ICS - How to adjust?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Can anyone advise how to adjust the date and the time on the ICS (1999/2000 vintage)? The owner's ICS manual is completely useless in this regard and I can't see any way to change either display. As per the attached pic, the date reads '7.9.97' and while the time is right (more or less) for the...

  6. ICS Screen and Radio dead.

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Last week while driving my ICS screen went black and radio went silent, all other functions on the ICS unit work fine. I checked all the fuses including the one on the back of the radio and they were ok. Then I replace the entire front panel of the ICS unit, which includes a new screen, but that...
  7. ANOTHER ICS question

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Before I refit my ICS, is there an "audio out" within that multi pin cluster on the Becker unit that I can use to drive an amp in the boot? Thanks
  8. ICS illumination?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I'm new to 166 ownership and have just got a replacement ICS to work, sort of! It's not fully pushed home yet and the heater control panel, fog light switches and hazzard warning switch have yet to be connected, but the radio works fine as do the selector controls and audio functions and trip...
  9. ICS problem

    Alfa 164 & 166
    After 17 years of not having any problems with my ICS here is what happened today while driving. ICS display screen working fine and then its starts to flicker on and off as the brightness fades away ending up with a totally black screen. All functions like AC and radio continue to work fine. A...
  10. No sound on ICS

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Finally got my 166 back on the road and absolutely love driving it, only problem is I'm getting no sound on the stereo. The tape deck is broken and rejects tapes and its saying no cd player fitted when I press the CD button even though the changer is in the boot. This doesn't bother me too much...

  12. Replaced fan blower motor. Now ICS says OFF

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I just replaced my fan blower motor, but now the ICS says OFF on my 2004 Alfa Romeo 166. I looked at all the fuses and relays under the hood and inside the car, but there are no obvious signs of anything bad. Did I miss any connections? The heat worked before, but the fan didn't work. Now the...
  13. [Fix] ICS sticky knobs. Pretty and permanent solution!

    Alfa 164 & 166
    They started to get sticky after the hot summer, one was much worse, the rubber was like chewing gum, you could literally get a bit and chew it up :lol: So I started to find a decent solution. Didn't want a cheap and ugly plastic knob! After a lot of searching on ebay, I found these: 2 pcs...
  14. 166 G3 ICS Sat nav software experts please?

    ICE & Blue&Me
    Hi, I have recently bought a 2001 166 that has fitted with what I presume to be a G3 ICS unit. I have the code and everything seems to work as it should on the unit apart from the sat nav. The vehicle didn't come with an original sat nav disc when I bought it, so I bought an updated UK disc...
  15. ne1 using ICS phone in Ireland ?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi Have 2004 ICS with phone, have a Vodafone SIM and a 3/O2 SIM. It doesn't even try to read the 3 sim, it can read the vodafone SIM but can't register on the network. "Emergency Calls Only". I know the Vodafone SIM is good as it works fine in other phones. Have tried messing around with...
  16. 166 ICS - knob 11 not working properly

    Alfa 164 & 166
    It had to happen - I've found something not working on the V6 TB I've bought. The right-hand knob/dial on the ICS unit - it's called knob 11 in the instruction manual! - doesn't do what it's mainly supposed to, which is move from one option/setting on the screen to another. It's the same...
  17. ICS code needed if battery disconnected?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi, I'm about to ask what may be a dumb question but that's never stopped me before! I'm getting the timing belt done this week on my 166 2.0 V6 and I'm assuming the battery will have to be disconnected at some stage of the job. Will I need to input the ICS code to get the system running again...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi guys, after I removed the ICS, i noticed this "bulb" (or whatever it is) hanging behind the ICS. Can someone of you recognize what it is, i.e. what its function is? Thanks in advance, Timo
  19. ICS and CD player

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Afternoon, I still have these in my garage despite the car being scrapped a while ago. ICS - £25 obo worked fine when I removed it, I am 98% certain the code is 4147. CD player - Free but I am not as confident of its working ability. I am in Dartford, Kent if anybody wants either. del
