  1. fuel pump wire

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello everyone. Want to change something in the car and i need the cable that goes to the fuel pump, +12V voltage. I have so far been able to determine that this should be a black cable (below / next to the driver's seat). I'm still not sure because the cable is also connected to the ground...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi Today as it was the first subzero day of the season, my Alfa had some frost around the window edges. As I pulled into a mall parking lot, where you need to grab a ticket to enter, the window wouldn't go down. I'll try to explain what happened. Clicked the switch for the window to go down...

    I am installing a voltage conditioner to stop the ICS getting over voltage, however the wire I believe to be the main power feed, Brown with a white stripe, is always live.

    Lots of my previous cars..including my Jeep have foot well lights that go on and off with the courtesy lights.

  8. Has anyone successfully tried the wonky idle fix by cutting ABS wire?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Here's the original thread for a 156 TwinSpark whose problems are eerily similar to what I and a ton of fellow GTV owners have been having: Has anyone managed to implement this? I haven't found a similar wire in the GTV's instrument cluster wiring diagram, but perhaps a GTV-specific fix has...

    Hi :) I'm going to fit a dash cam soon, it has a reverse camera too so I'm going to have to tap in a signal wire to the reverse switch.. Anyone know of the simplest place please? I'm guessing either under gear stock or reverse lights themselves but unsure :) Cheers, Justin

    Alfa Giulia
    Hello everyone, I am trying to add an active subwoofer to my 2018 Giulia 2.0TB base model. Thanks to a lot of threads i managed to come up with a plan to do so. The easiest way would be to borrow a signal from one of the rear door speakers using a high level to line converter. I plan on using a...
  14. Dash cam hard wire

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all, I’m contemplating a dash cam and wondering if anyone has hard-wired one yet? Would be good to know how you routed cables and where you added an earth connection. Would presume it would wire into the cigarette lighter fuse.

  16. Spider's web of wire's!!

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Another query somebody might have the answer to. The battery has failed so it's not a big problem to buy a new one and fit it, is it? Well in my Spider, YES! The previous owner obviously wanted to upgrade the stereo system and purchased a Focal IBUS 2.1 Under Seat Subwoofer. Only slight problem...

    Need to start off by saying I know little about cars. My rear screen washer currently isn’t working, looked at the engine to see if anything is not connected and found this close to the screen wash. Where is this supposed to be connected to? Any help would be appreciated.
  18. Ignition wiring diagram/schematic? (brown wire)

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi all, Recently I purchased a non-running MiTo, been doing some troubleshooting and your forum was really helpful, but now i'm stuck. If the key is turned, the starter doesn't move. Putting 12v on the starter directly makes it move. I traced back the wire from te starter relay and ended up...

    Hi, I was trying to install line level adapter with remote wire for my amplifier. I accidentally crossed + and - and there was a little spark. Now to red(+) wire from the stereo does not bring 12 V but something like 1. I checked all the fuses and they were all ok. Also when trying to open...
  20. Left Door Speaker not working

    Alfa MiTo
    Hi! Anybody knows how to fix the left door loudspeaker not working issue? No sound comes out of it. It feels unconnected. Is is possible that the wire is broken between the door and the body, like it happens when the boot open wires? Thanks.
