    Had my Giulia Speciale diesel 18 months now and for many months noticed there is hesitation issue in that the car doesn't move straight away when at a roundabout for example. Once was at roundabout put my foot on accelerator and nothing happened! I now don't go on a roundabout if theres a gap...

    Hmmmm tonight my car decided to suddenly display both the collision warning and the parking light warning. Both in yellow colour. I restarted the car three times in the hope it would disappear but to no avail. I check for obstruction on the radar sensor (wet autumn leaves maybe), but again no...

    Hi all, I've done a search and found a few threads but no resolution so posting about it here. The front parking sensors on our G beep loudly and the dash display lights up as if there is an object right in front of the car and very close. When this happened I got out to check in case there...

    Hello all Just bought an 07 plate 159 Lusso and the rear parking sensors don't appear to be working. No fault message appears on the dash and the button on the roof light cluster doesn't illuminate. No beeping, nothing. I've tried swapping the fuse in the dashboard box but to no avail! I've had...

    Is there such a thing as blanking plugs to insert to the holes left when the parking sensors have been removed from a 159s bumper ? I ve just bought a 2nd hand bumper but the seller has removed the sensors so i have holes which look rather unsightly ...

    Anyone know how to disengage the parking brake when it won't do from the centre switch or by selecting Drive and accelerating away? Since car just broke down (low fuel warning light 3/4 mile before just running out completely then cutting out - so refueled via recovery truck rescue!), it'll now...

    I'd just like to brainstorm the owners of Giulias with front parking sensors to see if mine have a problem . . . If I park with the front against a wall or object, and I start the car, the sensors start to beep, even with the car in Park. The same doesn't happen with the rear sensors. Same...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Due to undergoing some surgery I am not allowed to drive until at least end of August! What is my best option for my Brera 2.4? Do I just turn her over every couple of days and leave her running for a while? Do I trickle charge her for the duration? Due to insurance issues, I can’t easily ask...

    Had the 'parking help not available' on my 06 Brera, and the dreadful audible every time I engaged reverse. Found which sensor wasn't working by touch and listening for clicks and pulses. It was one of the 'inner' (closest to number plate). Took a punt on a cheap sensor on Ebay £7.55...

    Were there any late Brera’s that were NOT fitted with rear parking sensors? If so, why and which models? I’ve just been checking and rear parking sensors were fitted on all models 2005/2010 so why have I seen 2 Brera’s from late 2010 with no rear parking sensors fitted???

    Used forum guide - the photos were a great help. I've taken the bumper off 2008 159 because of the 'Parking help not available' issue. The non 'clicking' sensor by the the number plate needed replacing. Bought one and painted it Titanium grey :rotate:- all good. Problem came when replacing the...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I think the procedure to remove the rear bumper is the same or similar to the saloon and Brera but not having done it, I can't be sure. If you have a parking sensor issue, you can test the sensors by running your finger lightly across them, if they're working you should feel a vibration or...

    Does anybody know how easy it is to paint a black standard parking sensor to red, or does this affect the sensors capabilities? Cheers. I only need one.
  14. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Well... the plot thickens!.. when I press my ‘meta’ alarm fob to lock the GTV the bloody parking lights come on!... and won’t go off again til I start the engine. I’ve already replaced the indicator relay .. so it’s not that.. I was wondering if it might be that little half moon shaped ‘tab’ the...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Is there a cost effective way to add parking sensors to a GT? Mine doesn't have any and I find it a pig to judge the distance behind me when parallel parking. I would prefer to use an original bumper with parking sensors but unsure if this is possible.
  16. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, There are quite a few threads discussing 159 rear parking sensor issues. To clarify, the issue I’m having is a sustained beep for 2-4 seconds when selecting reverse, but only usually in wet weather I’ve noticed. Is this a faulty sensor or more likely a connection issue? Either way...
  17. Alfa Giulietta
    My parking sensors have stopped working - I only have rear. Done a search of the forum and found threads where the beep is constant, but I have no beep at all - not even when the car is put into reverse. I had the same last winter, but they just started working again before I had chance to...

    Today i connected my 159 with Multiecuscan to locate the source of my faulty pdc. When i start the car i get the messages parking not available. MES says that all 4 sensors are faulty? Or can this be that the pdc ECU is faulty? Thanks in advance for the replies :)
  19. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Had a go at replacing a faulty rear parking sensor today, no need to remove the entire bumper if it’s only to replace. My inside left parking sensor had failed, could just about reach the sensor but not enough as to remove it so here is my experience and guide: 1) Remove Both rear lights to...
  20. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    If someone could offer assistance please by pointing to the right thread? A.Romeo Brera 1) Removing/refitting parking sensors? 2) Does the bumper have to come off? Were working well until a very muddy trip to North Wales, cleaned them several times but still have the warning on the dash heads...
