  1. Wipers wiping when switching on ignition

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    My phase 1 Spider has decided to give the windscreen two wipes when I switch on the ignition! And will then go to rest. All when the level is definitely in the "no wipe/stop" position. Thereafter everything seems to be fine with the wipers, at all speeds! I initially thought that this may have...
  2. 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...
  3. Ticking Noise When Switching The Car Off - 1750tbi

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, brand new Alfa owner here after taking delivery of a 159 1750TBi last Tuesday. She's been a bit of a dazzler. I have noticed one thing though that I'm perplexed by: sometimes, after driving for a bit, I will hear a ticking/clicking noise from approx. the passenger side of the car when I...

    Coming from the engine bay. Anyone know why my multiair G does this? Do I need to worry?

  9. Problem with A/C Switching to heat.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Usually within the first 4min of driving the GT or even when i start it up it will switch to heat. Even today when i got into the car it stated it was 49c and it started to heat, even though it was on 22c when i switched the car off. Sometimes it does it and i have to turn the fan speed up or...

  11. Advice thinking about switching to Alfa!

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi everyone I'm thinking about buying an Alfa, Giulietta 2.0 170bhp. Just wondering what I should look out for and what should I expect in terms of MPG and running costs or repairs. This is the one I'm thinking of looking at Alfa Romeo Giulietta 2.0 JTDM-2 Veloce 5dr. I currently run a 59...
  12. ASR switching off intermittently

    Alfa GTA
    Over the years on the very odd occasion the ASR would switch off, no warning lights other than the ASR warning you it was off. You then couldn't turn it on again and it would only come back after the engine was switched off and restarted. It has done this now 3 times in the last couple of...
  13. switching tyres

    Alfa Giulietta
    My front tyres have worn twice as fast as my back tyres (normal i imagine for a fwd car) which are hardly warn at all and i want to swap them over. Now I've changed a tyre before and feel confident I could do all 4. However do I then need to get them aligned and balanced as soon as I've done that?
  14. GTV A/C Compressor not switching on

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Not having a good day today. Discovered that the AC on both my cars is fubar. The GTV was regassed at last service without issue, but I noticed today that when switching AC on I couldn't hear the compressor kick in. I've obviously not used it for a few months, and thought I'd test it after...
  15. Radio Switching on/off with ignition

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, I have owned a UK supplied 2004 156 JTS from new, yesterday when I turned on the ignition the radio did not switch on. I thought nothing of it and manually turned it on. However when I turned the ignition off the radio stayed on, it normally switches off. I've looked at a few of the Posts...
  16. Cruise control switching off and an unconnected connector. related?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So two issues. Could they be related? My passenger side wheel arch has cracked in front of the wheel (don't ask how..) and i can see through to where the windscreen washer reservoir is. It had been like this for about 2 months, I was eventually going to get around to replacing it with one off...

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, driving home today i switched from D to N mode and seemed to lose all turbo boost. almost no power at all, but no warning lights, temps normal and all seemed ok under bonnet. turned off/back on and all is fine and has been since. thinking this is a one-off electrical mix-up? I know D...
  18. 07Brera Blue and Me keeps switching to tuner or aux

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    despite having no aux-in...unless a 2007 B&M is more subtle than the 2011 B&M in a Giulietta. Once it has switched to aux I cannot forward to next track, I have lost all control...I can't even switch it back to CD then Media Player. Sometimes if I remove the USB stick and re-insert it will...
  19. Car stereo suddenly stopped switching on...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    So I changed the standard fit stereo a few months ago for a cheapo kenwood as that plays AAC straight off a usb stick. Worked ok apart from the dicky turn on due to stupidly cheap buttons. It has to be pressed and held in just the right way or it won't go on. Off it isn't so fussy. Change source...
  20. wipers and heated seats not switching off?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    newbie here, so please go easy on me if I ask something dumb! Picked up my Alfa GT 1.9JTD 2005 yesterday, and I notice that the wipers and the heated seats don't switch off with the ignition. Lights, stereo etc are all fine, but the car can be locked and the wipers still going! Obviously this...
