  1. Speedo trouble

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    I remember reading somewhere on this board that Alfa’s always have three things wrong with them and you should careful fixing one thing you know is not that much of an issue as the one that replaces it might be! Anyway, one of my three is my Speedo, I recently replaced the cable and since then...
  2. Change speedo on Japanese import

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I am looking at importing a gtv from Japan whereby speedo in km. Would be possible to swap the instrument cluster with a UK version? Also would the replacement retain the correct mileage and would it register in miles or km still?
  3. 164 3.0 speedo

    Alfa 164 & 166
    hi, the speedo on my 164 always packs up when the engine gets hot, (above 90) after being in traffic, but always starts again when cooled off? what could it be?
  4. Digital speedo

    Alfa Giulietta
    I really prefer the digital speedo in my G2013 But it’s only available in All weather mode. Is there any hacks - software- chips. That allow user options on displaying this in all modes. Not sure what bright spark would thing that the date or radio station was more needed that the speed...

  6. Twin Spark MPH to KPH speedo conversion?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi all! My '98 Twin Spark's speedo is currently a UK unit with MPH on the outside ring and KPH on the inside ring, however I've seen photos of KPH only instrument clusters/speedometers. Has anyone seen one for sale? Malta's KPH-only, and to go for a spirited drive with the speedo only moving...
  7. Tach & Speedo zero

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Ok I'm having Selespeed limp mode issue where it also puts the tach & speedometer to death. The problem is not persist and seems to be happening only after the car is warmed up so I'm suspecting some dodgy relay (maybe ?) but prior to that I want to classify the problems first. So basically...
  8. Crazy speedo

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi all! I have a strange problem with my Giulietta, -84, 2 liter. The moment I turn on the ignition the speedo goes crazy and runs all the way to max speed- The odometer ticks over accordingly. What might be the problem? Checked the wiring attached to the gearbox and it seems to be OK. Cheers...

  10. Why such a variation in 2.4 Speedo prices second hand?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Recently bought a 2.4 Brera with known problems which I have been slowly working through, new bonnet opening plastics, fuel flap not closing, seat release levers both broken and now the Speedo. The Speedo has worked intermittently since I bought and this was a known issue before purchase, I...
  11. S4 Spider Faulty Speedo

    The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi all My speedo is reading either fast or slow (if I drive at around 50 mph, it reads either 25 mph or, with a tiny tweak of the adjuster at the rear of the unit (see pic), it reads 100 mph!! I can't seem to get the adjuster in the right position for it to read correctly......does anyone...
  12. Speedo problem

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Funny gremlin. Speedo decided not to work after setting off. The other instruments worked. A few minutes later, it decided to work again. Electrical?
  13. Speedo binacle.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi Alfisti I have owned P1 & P2 Gtv and Spiders but never a V6, I know the P1 binacle cluster (Speedo/Rev counter) were all black and the P2 introduced sliver tunnels around rev counter and speedo but was this standard across all P2 GTV/Spiders? I have seen a P2 (2001) V6 Spider with all black...
  14. 156 V6 speedo problem

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi ladies and gents. I am at a loss and really need some advice. My 156 V6 wagon is giving me some trouble. The speedo is intermittent, but it seems like some sort of earthing problem. It will work fine then just drop to zero and stay there, this will happen randomly but especially when I put...

  17. Unstable backlights in speedo and fuel gauge

    Alfa MiTo
    So I've had this problem for quite some time. First of all the fuel gauge backlight. When starting the car, the fuel gauge lights up nicely, but seconds after I start driving it turns off again. Sometimes it is flashing on and off before it goes dark. And sometimes it comes on again for a short...

  20. My Speedometer doesn't match the digital speedo

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, so earlier this month I got a 2017 Giulietta. Today I noticed that there was a digital speedo reading when switching it to all weather mode. However once I was going faster than 10mph it seemed that the digital reading was increasing faster than the speedometer. Now I think it could be 1...
