    I was given an Alfa 33 1.5 ie last year, the car is tatty but very restorable, the only thing I cant sort out is that I have no spark at the plugs, so ive been working through it, replacing components, to date that included distributor, coil, ignition amp, ecu, but still no spark, so then I...
  3. Alfa MiTo
    Hi all, I've recently purchased a second hand 2011 MiTo with the 135hp Multiair unit. Shortly after I took possession it started warning of ignition faults. I'd already booked a service, and the mechanic was able to read the faults as intermittent ignition failures on cylinders 1 & 4. As part...
  4. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi All, I wondered if anyone can help with the recent issue I have with my 2010 Giulietta. When I turn off my ignition my number plate lights comes on after about 20 seconds and they stay on, after hours of being on they start to blink on and off, this happens whether the alarm is set or not...

    Hi I’m looking for an ignition positive fuse or even a timed one for dashcam piggyback fuse kit. Not wanting to solder into lights. Have tried F31 ‘various devices’ but this turns off with start/stop, only seems to be engine positive. Now trying F32 ‘interior lights’ to see if it will turn on...
  6. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi All, I have found the Uconnect 6.5 system not that good so I purchased an Alpine iLX-702D head unit plus a Kit-7AR-940 to fit in my Alfa Romeo Giulietta 2017 reg last week from the CarAudioCentre. Since installing the head unit , when I reverse the car and then go into another gear or...
  7. Alfa Giulietta
    hi, I am new to this site and alfas, but thought I would ask as have a bit of an issue with my ignition at the min and would appreciate some advice. Car runs fine 99% of the time but for example I can drive to work, decent distance, I stop and turn off the engine, it really doesn't like...

    Howdy. I'm putting in a new lightweight fan and alloy rad and the fan kit control module needs a power source which goes on with the ignition and one that goes on when the air con starts (air con clutch) Any ideas on the best place to tap into these?
  9. Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hopefully not a dumb question here from an uninitiated ... ! On these button-start Alfas (and probably anything else with same system), anyone know what the equivalence is to the ignition switch position II, and how to access that setting from the keyfob if at all? Or is that a thing of the...

    Hi I've had a good scan through the forum but can't find a thread on the problem I'm currently experiencing with my 2008 159SW - apologies if I've missed it... two weeks ago, with no warning, the engine cut out at a junction after driving for about 2 minutes. Odd... I restarted, and carried on...
  11. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Everyone, My mechanic tells me I need a new ignition switch for my GTV 2001 and he has removed the faulty one, a circular plastic unit. I have checked the EPER site here FIAT ePER :: The FIAT Forum and I have found a part called "starter commutator" FA 41 part number 60668391. I am...

    I need to remove the ignition barrel from the steering column - what's the best way to deal with the two cone-shape headed bolts? Not a lot of space to get a drill in there. Sent from my LYA-L29 using Tapatalk

    Here in Holland I have been in possession of a beautiful and trouble-free GTV for a while now. A beautiful 159 Sportwagon has recently been added. I have to take the time and effort to introduce myself here, excuse! Unfortunately, the 159 is not (yet) hassle-free; Subframe replaced (was rusted...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I snapped the plastic ignition barrel assembly on my 1998 156 2.5V6 in half. The parts still fit together and the car runs, but if I forget to hold them together when removing the key, the barrel separates. I have found a workshop that does plastic welding, but they can't work with the...
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My phase 1 Spider has decided to give the windscreen two wipes when I switch on the ignition! And will then go to rest. All when the level is definitely in the "no wipe/stop" position. Thereafter everything seems to be fine with the wipers, at all speeds! I initially thought that this may have...
  16. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hello I have a 2004 face lift 166 3.0 lusso sportronic which i love! However the ignition key will not come out without pulling the small button below the steering column. I have checked and the release solenoid if working - when power is applied to it, and there is power at the switch at the...
  17. Alfa GTA
    HI, my 2003 156 GTA seems to have an intermittent ignition issue. When I insert the key and turn it sometimes it does not start. Engine turns over but does not fire on the first or second try but will usually fire up on the third try. I understand it may be connected with the key not...
  18. Alfa 164 & 166
    Dear Alfa Owners, I have a nicely and fully restored 1994 QV 3.0 24V. I had been using it for some a weeks when symptoms started. Strong engine noise, pulsating exhaust gas, frequent stall on warm idle I realized there is no ignition in at least one cylinder on the front cylinder bank (spark...

  20. Alfa MiTo
    The radio in my 2011 MITO switches off when it starts in the stop and start mode. Normally the radio remains on and is not affected by the ignition in the stop and start mode. The matter gets more complicated since this happens sporadically (though more often than not) and at times the radio...
