  2. "Change engine oil" message

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've just had my car serviced but it still gives me this message. Apart from the possibility that he didn't clear the oil change timer(?) and assuming he did actually change the oil, what could cause this message to come up?
  3. 159 Indicator and break light failure message

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My 159 often comes up with a warning message on the display when the lights are on; rear left brake light failure and/or rear left indicator failure. However, when the lights are checked both are working fine. Is it a diagnostic error or something more sinister?

  5. Bulb Gone - no warning message?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Another bulb Q - Noticed today that my drivers side dipped beam isn’t working but strangely got no warning message like you usually do. Could this mean something other than a blown bulb? Surely not a fuse as it wouldn’t be one bulb. Maybe a loose connection but expect that would still...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
