  7. 159 changing TEG reader

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I've noticed that TEG reader might be root of recent electrical problems with my car. Overall it seems to shut CAN down communication intermittently thus causes various errors and I suspect it because it seems governing main supply of power to the car. One of the main symptom is that it would...
