  1. MiTo ignition faults - help determining potential causes

    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...

  3. Ignition or timed fuse for dashcam

    Alfa Giulietta
    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. Ignition and Air Con Power Source For Fan Install

    Alfa GTA
    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?
  7. Ignition switch position 2

    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...
  8. 159SW serious problem with ignition or key reader

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    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...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    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
  11. 159 car key stuck in the ignition

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    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...
  12. Remove steering rack and ignition barrel

    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...
  13. Wipers wiping when switching on ignition

    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...

  18. MITO radio switching off with stop & start ignition

    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...
