    Alfa MiTo
    Hello All Having had a 147 for a few years, 10 years ago, i was aware of Alfa's lust for electrical power. So when starting my 2012 mito QV after work today and getting the engine warning symbol as well as start stop unavailable, my thoughts went to the battery, having owned my car from new, i...
  2. Idle drops to nearly zero when coming to a stop from over 30kph/18mph

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    What the title says really. And this only happens with the AC on. If I depress the clutch to come to a stop while the AC is on and at speeds over 30kph the idle drops the nearly zero before settling regularly. The issue doesn't happen with the AC off at all, and if I slow to under 30kph before...

  5. Power steering gone at dead stop. Battery issue?

    Alfa MiTo
    As above, recently came back from a 3 week holiday to discover the battery was flat. Got it started, been fine the last week. This frosty morning driving to work, 70mph, radio switches itself on and off, followed by a long list of warning lights (abs disabled, hill start disabled, air bad...
  6. MITO radio switching off with stop & start ignition

    Alfa MiTo
    The radio in my 2011 MITO switches off when it starts in the stop and start mode. Normally the radio remains on and is not affected by the ignition in the stop and start mode. The matter gets more complicated since this happens sporadically (though more often than not) and at times the radio...
  7. Stop start

    Alfa Giulietta
    Prior to having BCM replaced if I switched stop start off on dash switch it would default to on after every ignition off and back in. Now I have it back if stop start is switched off when I park up etc and turn car back on stop start remains off, is this normal? Only reason I ask is with the...

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi all. Alfa MiTo SBK 2013, arrived from UK a few days ago. The rear screen wiper and the Start/Stop function do not work. I read here that it could be related to low battery voltage (the car took 3 weeks to arrive in a ship plus a week or so at the shipping company) so I fully charged the...
  10. Stop Oil Leak Additive Recommendations?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, So I’ve only just discovered that you can get an additive to put in with the oil to stop minor oil leaks!!! I’ve had a slow oil leak forever with the car; only a small drip on the driveway but it is enough to be irritating. Used to be the sump plug but that’s dry now. So my question...
  11. The mess that is stop start...

    Alfa Giulia
    Whilst issues around Giulia niggles are covered in a number of threads, this is an attempt to draw a couple of threats together and call out - stop start as the culprit. So - after picking up your lovely Giulia from new - you find that the stop start mechanism is very quick to cut in. For the...

    Alfa Giulia
    Gents As the above title states - started the car up this afternoon and by the time I got to the end of the road the centre display stated "Start / Stop Malfunction, check engine and the engine management light is perminately light - any idea's DNA not working either. Paul

  14. How to stop the locks freezing..?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi folks, As my Spider is parked outside every night my locks will start freezing up any day now, and it's my daily driver so need it to get to work in the mornings. Every year I have issues with the locks freezing and don't want something to break by forcing it. What do the rest of you do to...

  17. New Koni shocks, bump stop gap.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Having a good look around my 99 V6 GTV tonight, looking for the source of a suspension squeak, I feel I may have found it. Whilst the car is on level ground, the top of the shock tube is very close to the bump stop. The shock is a new koni strt from the recently manufactured batch following...
  18. Stop Start an interesting and concerning event!

    Alfa Giulietta
    Long story short: Stop/Start Event took out my Giulietta completely. On the way to work I had an interesting Stop/Start event. Like many, it seemed to work only sporadically, which I'd assumed down to an ageing battery (unknown age, but good brand; Bosch with stop/start logo). Today, on a...

    Alfa MiTo
