    My instrument lights come on and dim correctly when the side lamps are turned on, but not during the day. elearn says they should, which would be good because under some lighting conditions I can't see the minor gauges. Would someone with experience of a similar 156 let me know if they are...

    All of a sudden on the Multi Function panel on the GT I have a small irregular shaped, lit-up patch around 1/4 inch size appear from nowhere. I thought it was some mysterious warning light at first but I guess that even Alfa wouldn't come up with such an obscure shape. :) It looks like a...

    Hi, when I start my Alfa 156 2.4 diesel all of the symbols on the dash go out, but the curly wire symbol (glow plugs), comes back on and flashes for about 5 seconds. Is this an indication that there's a fault with a glow plug or the glow plug circuit? Many thanks for any help.
