  1. 3.0 v6 throttle reset

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi guys my V6 ph 2 failed on the idle emissions, the car runs fine but something is obviously amiss. It has the fly-by-wire unit and I'm wondering if the unit needs a reset or whether the butterfly is not operating correctly and could be over-fueling. High rev emissions were fine. Any ideas...
  2. Change Oil Warning Reset QV

    Alfa Giulietta
    I did an oil change on the Giulietta about 3 months ago, but now I have an extremely obnoxious and distracting warning popping up every five minutes. Is there any way to reset this message without using MultiEcuScan? I don’t have a laptop and the iOS version doesn’t work. Thanks
  3. Reset service

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I am trying to reset the service interval but cant get in to the Siemens ecu for some reason. Did reset it 3 years ago with Multiecuscan, so i am puzzled why i cant now.

  4. Central console on a reset loop?

    Alfa Giulia
    Guys, This morning my Veloce went mad. The central console looped from reset to restart for 10 minutes. Then I had to park the car. We will see what happens when I go back to it later. Anyone else had that? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Idle Speed Actuator Reset - still behaving weird with AC on and best way to train it

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all! I replaced my knackered Idle Speed Actuator with a used unit and reset it. It's gently 'finding its feet' but I'm curious what your experiences were like when you reset its parameters - how long did it take to idle fully normally? With the AC off it's 95% great, but with the AC on it's...

  8. alfa 147 ecu reset

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Yesterday I tried an ecu and throttle reset as in the ''known'' instructions. I disconnected the battery and reconnected it after an hour and then turned the key to''mar'' position. The instructions said to leave it there for at least 90 sec. and then my ''dashboard should come alive''. If by...

  11. Throttle Reset

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I've had my Giulietta QV for a couple of months now. I've just found out that it's possible to 'reset' the throttle map by disconnecting the battery for a short while, then reconnecting it. I don't want to perform a full ECU reset, but is a throttle reset worth doing? I figured it might...
  12. Throttle reset!

    Alfa Giulietta
    Does anybody know what this does and can if be done by the owner like some other makes of cars? To cut a long story short, my 1.75tbi has a few issues where I put my foot down on the accelerator and nothing, no rev of the engine, no gas, no power. I had to pull over and stop with engine still...

  14. MacBook factory reset.

    The Technology Section
    I want to do a factory reset on my 2011 MacBook Pro, I've done a full back up on an external drive. Talking to other MacBook owners they say it is a risky thing to do a reset on a machine this age. It could lock the machine up as older MacBooks (over 4 or 5 years) really struggle with the...
  15. B&Me "Wait" reset combo?

    ICE & Blue&Me
    Evening all, So, I'm another victim of a unit that isn't the first in the car (I've got a 159Ti again). Entered what I thought was the correct code (i.e. from the card in the car's docs) a few times and then gave up. I've since gotten the correct code, but my issue is the "Wait" prompt - yep...
  16. How to do a complete reset - Alfa 159?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    I have just replaced the clock spring in my 159 (I broke the cables on the original when removing the air bag). However I still have a VDC and air bag error and there is no power to the steering wheel control buttons. I have scanned the car with an OBD reader and the only fault is B1005 -...

    Hello, sorry new here but hoping to get some advice. I've had my 60 plate Giulietta for 5-6 years and since warranty expired have had it serviced at an independent Alfa only specialist with no problems. Now moved further away and this isn't as convenient as it was. In the early days before...
