  1. Erratic central locks 166 TS

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Yeah, so my problem is that when in lower gears, or braking, the central locking starts to click on and off. Like an relay sound coming from the back of the car. Not sure if it actually locks the doors on and off, but it sounds like it. Also the central locking does not work when used from the...
  2. cam locks 3.2 v6

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Anyone know a good source for buying cam locks in Australia. Just bought a 2004 GT 3.2 and cam belt last changed in 2012. Even though it's only done 49,000 since change it's been over 5 years so want to play safe. I plan to keep the GT for a while so happy to buy tools.
  3. Door Locks UK

  4. 2.0 JTS cam locks - confused!

    Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Just about to reassemble my 2.0 JTS motor having had the head skimmed. This being my first JTS, I bought a set of JTS cam locks along with the head gasket set and various other bits and pieces from Alfa Workshop. However - there are no instructions with the locks as to which cam lobes they fit...
  5. removing the CODE box causes bouncing locks?

    Alfa 164 & 166
    when i installed the reprogrammed ECU into my 3.0 fl, I reasoned that since the ecu no longer needs a CODA function, I could take the code box out of the circuit. Having done this I now have bouncing locks. Is it a coincidence ? and i need to strip and clean the locks? or should I re plug the...
  6. I've fixed the locks...

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I was talking to a master locksmith (he was sorting out the dodgy remote on my Land Rover) and I asked him about the worn-out locks on my Alfetta: the ignition lock took a lot of 'jiggling' to make the key turn and the door and boot locks were heading the same way. Perhaps not surprising on a 40...

  9. Another Bouncing Locks Question

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I am after some advice with my bouncing locks issue. I had the locks lock then reopen, as have many I'm sure. I now have everything looking correct. The car appears to lock but the drivers side can still be opened activating the alarm. If I then relock it the locks "bounce" I then have to open...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Funny thing happened on the GTV the other day, when i locked the car with the remote i heard it lock then cycle to unlock again.Now I’ve had this before when the Bowden cable played up so i just locked the car with the key and thought nothing of it.

  15. Alfa 166 - door locks bouncing, post alarm...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Interesting 166 challenge this morning. The alarm was going off - I assumed because it was a windy night. Went out, unlocked the car and checked the dash LED to see what had triggered the alarm. The LED flash sequence was one flash; then a gap; then seven flashes; then a gap; and so on...

  17. GTA Selespeed locks in gear due to high temp?

    Alfa GTA
    A friend of mine is considering buying a 156 GTA Selespeed. The Selespeed on the car has a curious problem: If the engine becomes hot, the gear box locks up in the current gear selected. Fix so far: pull to the side of the road, let the car cool down, and then it´s good to go again... Is this a...
