    Sort of what it says on the tin, does anyone have, or know of, a set up whereby a pressure pad can be used to activate an electric light, or know how easy it would be to set one up? The intent is the application of the mat would for it to be used on the floor in front of a mirror, so that when...

    I have had a problem with the interior light on my 159 for a while. First started one evening driving home, interior light just wouldn't turn off. Is intermittent, so sometimes fine, but usually turns on halfway into a journey. Also turns on in the middle of the night while car is in garage...

    I noticed that the trunk light wasn't working, so I thought, oh the light bulb must be out, simple fix - yeah I wish. Examined the bulb, which interestingly did not look blown, so I went ahead and switched out the whole light box/switch (however you want to call it) from the other 147, which was...

    Hello and sorry for my english but it's not my language. Try as I can. I noticed today that I don't have reverse lights. The bulbs are ok, today the lights jumped several times. I heard that there is a sensor or someone has a picture or diagram where to look? Is there a socket on the gear shift...

    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...

    Just wondering if anyone has any pointers on changing a tail light on a year 2000 spider? Had a quick look and didnt seem very accessible? Also any idea on bulbs required ? Vehicle is in Australia so I’m guessing super cheap or someone will have them? Any help would be appreciated Thanks

    Hello there I wonder if anyone might have some thoughts on this idea I have... I have soldered all my Airbag yellow connectors, under the seat, the B pillars and C pillars at the back. My car is 3 door so I think the cause may be moving the seat or possibly helping other cars with flat...

    I have been taking things fairly easily since fixing the head gasket but decided to give it some beans on the way home from work today, to enjoy the engine sound. Accelerating hard in third up a hill, heading for about 6,000 rpm, the engine light started flashing steadily, then went off. Then...

    Hello, I recently got this dash light at the bottom which looks like a transmission light but I can’t find anything in the manual about it. The light initially was flashing and said check manual but has since gone away. Any suggestions what it is and what the problem might be?

    Hi. I recently had a mid service oil and filter change on my jtdm2 170 Veloce. This was a local garage in Spain. Now back in UK about 4000 miles later the oil light flashes and the fisplay says "chamge engine oil". Can I clear this without any equipment as it isn't necessary ?. Thanks

    Just looking for opinion. My Veloce has 3500 miles up and the Oil Change sign has come up. The car was brand new in March. Has anyone else got any experience like this? Oil level is fine, I’ve checked. I’ve booked it in for a check in case the sensor is faulty. If not, I guess I’ll have to pay...
