    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I've got an early RH drive 147 and neither the glovebox light, mirror vanity light or centre interior light work. These lights are all on the same circuit and seem to be driven from the body computer. There's no fuse. Suspecting a faulty driver chip I started tracing and the lights suddenly...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, 2 part question here. First of all, is it just me or is the interior lighting on the GT a bit of a joke? In my old 147 I could press the unlock button and the interior light would come on for 30 seconds allowing me to find my way around the car in the dark but my GT doesn't do this...

  19. A few internal lighting questions

    Alfa Giulietta
    Is it possible to adjust how bright the speedo/instrument panel is? I can't seem to find an obvious way of adjusting this. Can you alter how long the courtesy lights stay on for when you turn off the ignition? For me personally I feel that they turn off far too quickly. Any recommendations for...
