  1. Car Washed - no windows / tailgate function!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I just sold my 147 to a local lad, who promptly had the car washed, and now he tells me the electric windows don't work, and the tailgate button no longer opens the boot! Poor guy! Not the introduction to Alfa Romeos he might have wanted! Sounds like a simple fuse to me, but what do I know...
