    I know this has been covered in the past but sometimes it's worth posting again. Please ignore this if it annoys you to see it repeated. My menu button had stopped working, along with the dashboard dimmer. It was only really a problem when the clocks change, but I could use MultiECU Scan and...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I just bought a beautiful Beta 2.2 JTS and unfortunately, the menu isn't usable on the light stalk.

  10. Menu Buttons

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    For the last couple of years I've had periodic problems with the menu button on the indicator stalk of my ten year old Brera. I would imagine this will become quite common place now many more 159 derivatives are reaching that age. The first couple of times I cured the problem by applying...
