  2. USB Music Playing

    Alfa Giulietta
    I know there are a number of threads already about this but I don't seem to be finidng anything related to my issue. I have a 2011 Veloce and have put about 150 songs on 4gb USB stick.

  3. Playing music?

    Alfa MiTo
    Good morning to all. After having my Mito for two years I have just found the USB port. Using an old tablet for playing music on can I connect it to the USB or do I have to use a more modern piece of equipment or with something with a special program.
  4. Boot opening randomly playing up

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    It's probably approx. 30% of time it happens. For example, I park the car and walk out of the car then decide to take something out of the boot. The fob button doesn't work so I push button on boot and it doesn't work either. Then I lock the car with fob button then both boot button and fob...

    I'm trying to find a cost efficient way to send all phone audio through my car speakers. Can the USB port in the glove box do this?

    Alfa MiTo
    Morning guys, Was on my way to work on Friday morning and all of a sudden I got the 'Check tyre pressure' warning come on for all 4 tyres at the same time, which I thought was a bit odd.

  20. Power steering playing up - advice please.

    Alfa MiTo
    We are getting power steering warnings on the dash although the unit still appears to work which seems odd if it is failing. Anyone also had this combination and what was the outcome? We have a warranty which I hope will cover it but I'll need someone near Sevenoaks preferrably. I understand it...
