    This old chestnut! Sorry to bring up the same old topic again but i've searched the site and only found one other owner who has experienced this problem and the thread didn't appear to lead to a solution. Please if anyone can help. 1999 Spider 2ltr TS Lusso. Wipers work fine on intermitent...
  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi guys, my GT 2007 have problem with wipers. Especially in hot weather. I want to wish my glass, water sprays well, but wipers don´t run. No position works. Everytime it happens, I have no time to look for reason. After 1-2 hours it works normal. This happens 3-4 times/month. Any Idea where...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    after a year with the alfa I stilll can't fathom out the settings for the intermitent automatic wiper on my 159 2.4 lusso. Any choice of the 4 available settings seems to make no difference. I've checked that the screen in front of the rain sensor is tip top clean, no smear or grease and it's...
  9. Alfa 145 & 146
    Hi I have a 146 1.7 16v boxer 1996. Got it for a bargain 100 quid. Runs fine but sometimes will not start straight away. Key code light goes out try to crank it over and nothing. Leave it for between 30 sec to a couple of minutes and hey presto it fires. Any ideas. Cheers
  10. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Guys I have searched and read various thread that mention eratic idle issues. The issue I have is that I do have eratic idle issues sometimes, but there is no pattern as to when it will happen.....so not sure where to start. The issue is common I guess i.e. when it happens (slowing down) the...
  11. Alfa 164 & 166
    My heater blower doesn't work all the time, the electric seats and seat heaters go off at the same time. Only noticed it during the cold spell. I have assumed it is a relay, but had no success with the owners manual and the fuse relay box in the boot. There is a slight smell of coolant which...
  12. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have a very temperamental reverse light. When engaging reverse for the first time before a journey, the light will engage without problem. The trouble is that for some reason it will not come on again after any further attempts. Every now and then it may decide to come on when out and about...
  13. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    hi guys, the fan on my 30 gtv sometimes comes on when its fairly cold , sometimes at 90 or just before 120 or not atall or it stays on permenently until i tap the relay by the washer bottle. I have replaced both relays twice now but they always end up sticking . its probably a sensor but im not...
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    When i bought my lovely gtv v6 it came with a few problems in true alfa style... The wipers only work on intermitent setting and was told it could be the motor but would that not mean they wouldn't work at all? I think it could be a switch. Anyone had a similar problem or anyone have a...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All Starting to develop a slightly strange problem. Have noticed that sometimes I can hear a clear ticking noise which could perhaps be coming from the aux belt area? The best way to describe it is like electricity arking. It is not regular in beat or timing and clicks intermittently...
  16. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi All, I guess its my turn to ask for the support of the collective alfisti wisdom: i have a 99 6speed 3.0 V6 with 75 k on the clock. Briliant car extensive maintenance up to now with cam belt changed at 55 k 1,5 years ago. very regular oil changes (every 3-5 k) I had no problems with the...

  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Anyone knows what's the problem when the boot-light sometimes illuminates & sometimes not?
  19. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi, ive read all the threads about R/S wipers etc, but mine do nothing at all in the intermitent position. Am thinking that even if the sensor was faulty they would still go to there raised position, so maybe its a problem with the intermitent timer or the stalk itself? Anyone else had similar...
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, Just recently I've noticed that, what I think is the airbag failure warning light on the instrument panel of my Alfa 147 JTD (image of person in seat with circle in front), is coming on and off intermitently. By this I mean that it will suddenly come on and then continue to stay on for...
