  1. 159 2.4 No start, Fuel Relay clicking, flashing EML when ignition is on, boost gauge random (videos attached)

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hey there, I've got an issue on my 159 that I've never seen before, however I have followed all steps on this post from 2016 which is an identical issue. Flashing EML, turning over as like no fuel getting to the engine, boost gauge is all over the place and the fuel relay is clicking like mad...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    On the 147 GTA there are three Relays sitting in front of the battery, does anyone know what they are for? left to right. In the fuse box on the right hand side of the battery there are six relays, some are obvious as to what they are for from their symbols but there are two with an Engine...
  3. V6 fuel pump relay?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all, I was planning on fitting a kill switch between the ecu and the fuel pump. I have done this on a few of my other vehicles with no problem how ever on the GTV V6 I can't seem to locate the fuel pump relay. I can see there are 3 injection system relays but splicing into all three and...
  4. Relay clicking when steering applied

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I have what I can describe as a relay going crazy and clicking when some steering lock is applied. I first thought the relay sound was coming from a the fuse box but it seems to be coming from behind the wheel/clock spring area. I have had the odd 'VDC fault' come on the dash at times...
  5. V6 slow speed cooling fan and relay

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Can anyone point me in the direction of where to find the slow speed cooling fan relay (199) please ? I have a 2001 3.0 24v spider and seem to have lost both my slow speed fans. I'm guessing that if one resistor has gone I would only lose one slow speed fan - surely they wouldn't both call...
  6. Air conditioning mito 1.3 relay

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi still working on my air conditioning. Clutch doesn't engage but this could be lack of refrigerant. I'd like to check that clutch will connect so want to check at relay. Plenty of information about fuse numbers but nothing on relays. Anyone know the number of the relays location or where I...
  7. Fuel Relay Location PH1 Spider

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    After storing my spider for the last 3 years I now have to move the alfa to a new location. The problem I find myself in is that I have to move it by this weekend as the property has been sold. I find that it will not start and have traced it to no 12v power to the fuel pump (pump replaced...

    Hello! I need a little help. I saw where the fuse box for the fuel pump is located in the manual, but when I opened the hood, nothing. Needs to be near the water reservor, but I don't have nothing there. Somebody who knows something? Is my one and single car, today is the third day with her in...

  11. Relay positions

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I started to do the rear screen fix on my V6. Sure enough it had the usual melted fuse but the position of the relays in the fuse box was not what I expected. The yellow timer relay is usually second top on the right. Has someone just moved it to disable the rear screen or is the one at the...
  12. location of cabin fan relay?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    My friend has a 1,9 JTS - petrol. The ac/cabin fan is completely dead, and he has asked me to help him look for the control relay. I figured it would be a good idea to ask here if anybody can point us in the right direction before we start looking? A picture/tech drawing would obviously be of...

  14. Confusing fuel pump relay issue

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I have a problem with the relay to the fuel pump that I really don't understand. The problem is that the fuel pump does not get any juice, resulting in no starting issue. I have tested the relay and measured both voltage and ohm on the relay, and it works perfectly fine. I have also tried...

  17. relay connection

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Some days ago I asked about the existence of ACC wire in 147 ISO plug. The answer was no because it is controlled by CAN BUS. So I decided to connect my CLARION 807e navigation unit directly to the battery (from the distributor I use for the amplifier) via a switch and a relay. The problem is...

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I'm just about to take mine for its not mandatory MoT but when checking round found both main beams not working (dips do); the warning light comes on and the relay (fitted them a few years ago) clicks, all fuses OK but when I checked the power out to the mains from the relay it was showing zero...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I have a 2004 Alfa Gt 3.2. The horn isn't working. I've checked the fuse and it looks fine. Other threads advise to check the horn relay. I can't hear any clicking from the relays in the fuse box next to the battery when the horn is pressed. Does anyone know which relay in the image below...
