    Hi, I had the electric power steering colum replaced everything was fine then the ABS light came on the dashboard. Took it the garage to get plugged in and it came up that the left rear wheel sensor was the fault. So I had that replaced but it wasn't re-setting the computer. I took it to an...

    Hi Guys Recently the 147 has started displaying ABS, VDC System Failure errors when turning the cars ignition to MAR position, I have read on the forum that this could be an issue relating to the brake pedal switch, I just wanted to check if this could still be the issue even if the brake...

    Hi All, Changed both of my rear suspension as they fell to bits. There was quite a lot of hammering and swearing involved. After that, I now have the VDC and ABS fault whenever I turn my car on. Codes are on the attachment. I would like to guess, the one with invalid signal could be that I...

    Hey guys!! Wondering if you can help a brother out!! I have an Alfa 159 1.9 Diesel and I've had the front wheel bearing replaced in the garage. However the ABS, VDC and Hill Holder lifts are now on (unavailable). The garage said that it should reset after a few miles etc. Connected my scanner...

    Hi I have a VDC go to dealer message coming up, it started coming up once in a blue moon now its coming on every journey after 5 - 6 miles. I understand this to be an ABS fault, I have tried plugging in my code reader and am not getting any codes. In short is there anyway to narrow this down, or...

    Hello, Last week while i was driving (once while at 30kph, once while breaking) my front right wheel brake was engaged. The first time it happened i was driving on paving stones (wet and wavy) so i didn't understand what exactly happened (and no error was displayed). The second time on dry...

    Hi All, I took my family for a drive in our 147. While rounding a right-hand descending bend the VDC activated causing the brakes to be applied abruptly. I was nowhere near the limit of adhesion. This was really surprising and slightly unnerving as it upset the balance of the car mid-corner. I...

    I have been having troubles with the ABS ECU since I got my '02 156 1.9JTD. the first ECU was not working so I changed it. ABS works fine, but I still have problems with VDC, EBD and ASR, none are working. I had a faulty clock spring and a faulty steering wheel position sensor so I changed those...

    Hi All :) My beloved 147 has not been used much recently and has been flashing up this warning when 1st used but once warmed up it does not come back on when I restart. In simple terms how does the system work and what could be the possible causes? I know it could be anything from a poor...

    Hi all, I just bought a 2007 GT diesel. On the test drive nothing was showing up on the dash and all seemed good for the money so I purchased the car. When I got out onto the motorway after 5-6 miles the VDC failure warning came up on the dash. After the car has been turned off and back on...

    Just fitted a CC stalk yesterday, and now for some reason VDC Failure error keeps occuring. Resets on turning off. Have used knock off chinese ODB2 Bluetooth dongle and 'torque' on my android and doesn't show any faults. The slip-ring is self locating isn't it? which is usually the thing that...

    Hello everyone, as I posted on my previous topics, I bought a used 2002 Alfa romeo 156 1.9 jtd in a very bad condition, I have spent on it so far at least 1000$ from steering rack and C.V joints to door handles ... anyways I am pretty done with serious repairs now I'm left with electrical...

    Just started my Brera and got a warning to get the engine checked along with a message saying something about the VDC and that the hill holder wasn't working. The car took a couple of goes to start which is unusual. Drives as normal. Any idea what the problem could be?

Took this car to Alfa dealer and has been told that nothing wrong (unbelievable), not bad news though but yesterday driving home the message Hill holder VDC failure is on, the...

    Last week I served to avoid a lorry which was in the centre of the road. The near side wheels went onto a grass verge but, unluckily for me, hit a raised kerb around a drain. The impact bent the track rod which I was able to repair, however, I think I crushed the ABS cable when straightening the...
