  1. Odometer flashing after changing radio

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, Recently changed my origin radio from Giulietta 2010 for a brand new Kenwood. Everything works fine, including the steering wheel controls. Unfortunately, as expected, now I have the kms odometer flashing. My question is: is a proxy alignment the right thing to do? Won't it interfere it...
  2. Speedometer and Odometer Issue

    Alfa 75, RZ, SZ
    Hi all. As the title says really. Having read a few threads on here and on AlfaBB, it seems the first place to start is at a Jaeger Box under the back seat. However, the symptoms I have seem a little different as my speedo and odometer are working/reacting. The only issue is that as soon as...

  8. How easy is it to 'clock' a 159?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello everyone, I'm new, hence the name :) Before I go any further, no, I'm not interested on how to do it. I am going to look at a 159 07 reg tomorrow. It's a good price, and it looks the part. Good condition etc. The problem is the MOT (yes I'm in England) history shows up a few red flags...
  9. Odometer flashing after ECU replacement

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi, I’ve recently had my airbag ECU replaced due to an srs light on my dash.. since then my odometer has been constantly flashing. I’ve took it to Alfa thinking it could be a proxy sensor issue, it isn’t and in three hours they couldn’t find anything. They have said they’ll continue to...

I tried to remove the fuse box at the side of the steering column...

  12. Spider S4 replacement odometer

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Evening All My spider S4 is presently with no odometer... been through the usual dry joint, broken track type stuff but too no avail. Presumably Alfa didn’t have the Jaeger speedo electrics made specially for the spider so I was wondering if anyone had identified a more main stream donor car...
  13. Trip computer VS odometer; low fuel warning light

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Well I have a peculiar issue. My car was in the workshop for a long time and I assume the battery was disconnected for some days (probably). Now I noticed a funny thing - since then my trip computer read less miles than the odometer. From experience of distances I drive I would say that...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hey, I've got a 159 1.9 jtdm, I was thinking about changing the gauge cluster to one with the red rings around the gauges (purely for the look), what I want to know is if this is possible and how can I change the odometer reading to match the original cluster?

  16. Flashing odometer

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello collective Alfa magicians, I've just bought my first Alfa, 2013 Giulietta 2.0 diesel 140, and the odometer is flashing. I read in other forums that this is something to do with the electronics not talking to each other and it needs a CANBUS proxy reset. I have no idea what this entails...
  17. Replacing 147 odometer screen

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I recently bought an '02 147 and discovered the odometer is only very, very slightly flashing random segments of the numbers on the screen. I purchased a used gauge cluster, plugged it in and now the display works but is flashing. The new cluster is roughly 40K kms less than what it should read...
  18. Alfa 159 Miliometer fault!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello all, I've noticed a fault with my 159 1.9 JDTM (2007). The milometer, as it hit 133,000 mi reset back to 132,000 mi. About 20 miles or so before it hit 133k, I had noticed it flashing momentarily (whilst driving). I'm sure others will have experienced the same, does anyone know what the...
  19. Spider S4 odometer not working

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    My odometer has stopped working. The speedo works fine so I'm presuming either the mechanism has packed in inside the dial or it has a separate drive. I seem to remember that the speedo is fed by pulses so is the odometer cable fed? There is an S4 cable on Classic Alfa. Anyone shed any light...
  20. Alfa GT - Speedometer, Revcounter resetting?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Good day guys. I had a audio shop replace the stock Blaupunkt radio with a Sony MEX 4050 BT last week. I haven't had any issues yet, apart from the steering wheel volume/skip/src/mute not functional any more. But that is because they did not have a unit to translate the commands so that the...
