    Hi all, I just bought a red 2005 GT 3.2 v6, really happy with it! However, there is a slight niggle. When starting the car, the "low battery charge" message pops up. However, it disappears as soon as I apply a little throttle and the message does not come back until I switch off the engine and...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello every one, I am facing a voltage drop issue with my 156 2.5 v6, the drop happens when i turn on the A/C, when the raditor fans start the voltage drop from 14 to 12,1 and with more load like all the lights on,radio,...etc the voltage drops to 11,9 this is driving me crazy, when there is no...
  3. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi! I have a 166 2.5 and noticed since I bought the car half a year ago and especially after some servicing done to the car, that the odometer light blinks a bit at idle. Initially, I changed the battery with a new one, but the flickering continues. I then put the OBD + Multiecuscan and got...
  4. Alfa Giulia
    Just wanted to share with you some interesting observations on the battery voltage as I have been driving around with a voltmeter in the 12V outlet in the ashtray of my Giulia Super 2.0 TB 200 hp ( Dec 2016 ) After starting the engine and driving off the voltmeter shows 12.8-13.0V. The voltage...
  5. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello, I recently purchased a 159 3.2 Q4 with 227.000 km on the clock. Production date 2008. I got it for a good price but had to do a lot of work on it : - new front and rear shocks (coils + springs + bearings on top) - new front upper wishbones - one spark plug coil - new radiator +...
  6. Alfa Giulietta
    1.4MA was struggling to start but once going runs fine. Now it won't start but makes a clicking noise. Video - https://youtu.be/1pNAUGLFZgM Voltage across terminals is 13volts. About to order a new battery but thought I'd see if anyone recognises the problem. No fault codes. 2012 model...
  7. Alfa Giulietta
    Been looking back over ancient posts to try and find some help with my 'you gonna hit something' rear sensor issue. 2010 Giulietta Veloce who's rear sensors the other day decided to stay permanently on when selecting reverse. Experienced the frost warnings before but this time all was dry and...
  8. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    I'm trying to decide if there is an issue. To give background, I did a major overhaul on engine 9k miles ago due to gasket failure. Head was skimmed, decoked along with injector cleaning. Obviously I did the usual Goetze piston rings with deglaze, bottom end shells etc whilst doing so. I have...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    A quick check of the battery on a 1.9 16v JTD measures 12.4v across the terminals when sitting without engine running, when running I'm getting 14.2v. Immediately after switching off on a hot engine the voltage reads 13.5v. 12.4v seems low to me and I'm thinking this battery is quickly dying -...
  10. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I have a problem with my 3.2 Brera that is driving me crazy :banghead: Normally at idle, but sometimes when pulling away or at low-ish speed the engine drops in rpm and the stereo cuts out and restarts. Sometimes it almost dies with a really bad jolt then recovers itself. Sometimes at idle it...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just bought this car , too good to wreck but major elec issues. Seles pump not getting current ? Checked fuses and changed relays but nothing at the plug. I changed the relay at the pass foot well and tried another 147 ECU but no good.
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi I've got a 159 1.9jtdm with possible voltage issues. At idle I can hear the engine note peak and drop every say 3 seconds. The lights both in and out plusate the same. Battery was old anyway so have already changed that for a new one yesterday but hasn't solved the issue. On my multimeter...
  13. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hi guys I have a '72 105 GTJ with a single pair of headlights. The high beam wire has 12v with no load When I connect the bulb the voltage drops to zero. I'm thinking a broken wire that can't handle the invreased load, but does anyone have any other ideas? Regards, Richard
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I'm a new 147 owner and have an odd issue. I get a battery low message while driving and the car will eventually shut down. If I put a tester onto my battery while idling it goes right up to 14v from 12v while off. However it will gradually drop by about 0.01v every 5 seconds The...
  15. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, first time poster here. I spend most of my time on 80's Kawasaki forums so this is a whole new world for me. My wife wanted a European hatchback so instead of a Golf I talked her into a 147. She bought a 2010 147 2.0 Selespeed, Blackline, it's so beautiful! I took it for a drive last...
  16. The Classic Alfa Romeos
    Hello, I have an 83 Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce and this morning on the way to work, the tach started to go from 0-30 and back again. The battery light also came on. I am just wondering, voltage regulator - alternator - or worse? Any suggestions are more than welcome. Newbie status here... Thanks.
  17. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    First of all...are the regulator and rectifier one and the same component? And where are they? I have an alternator from a breaker that I'd planned on fitting this weekend (to hopefully solve the pulsing headlight/dash issue) but I was wondering if it's worth trying those 2 parts first. I'm...
  18. Engines (TS, JTS, JTD & V6)
    Hi all, question could anybody supply me with a MAF voltage for a 147 TS1.6 under full load. Reason I've installed a turbo and have decided to fit a AEM FIC and need some base data to clamp the MAF, only problem with it fitted cannot get a true figure. Regards
  19. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    What would the ideal voltage be for a car at rest. I recently charged it up over a couple of days and used it for a short run. The next morning the voltage showed as 12.3V. This seemed a bit low. I am thinking that a new battery might be due as this one ( a Yuasa) has a few years on it. Doug
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm experiencing variation in the voltage on all electrical devices. All bulbs are pulsating when engine is working and everything is fine with engine turned of. Measuring the voltage giving results of amplitude changes in range from 14,3 -15,6 V DC. Two weeks ago I have changed the aux belt...
