  2. Fuel gauge stops half way, but empty light works okay.

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    It stops at half way down. The fuel level warning light comes on and it fills all the way back up. So one bit works. When I disconnect the sender the warning light comes on, but the gauge sits at half way. It shows just under full after 80 miles and then around a quarter after 180. Grounding...
  3. 159 radio works when it wants too

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi I was wondering if someone could help me. My 159 CD/radio works like any other Italian car, when it wants to. So some days the radio/cd player won't play anything and then when I have reach my destination and turned the engine off its decides to start working!!! So I decided to remove the...
  4. No heat from aircon heater but fan works

    Alfa Giulietta
    I have a 12 plate Giulietta 1.4 MultiAir 170 and I have a problem with the heater/air con system. I do not get any heat coming out regardless of how high I set the required temperature. The fan works at all speeds, I can change between each vent and the air con works (i.e really cold air comes...

    Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi everybody, i have a 3.0 166, but the heater fan has stopped working sometimes, it usually goes when the engines cold, but if you like goto a shop and restart it the fan wont spin. Sometimes if you turn it back off for a few mins then restart it the fan will work as normal. I've changed the...
  6. 147 GTA - Works in progress

    Alfa GTA
    Hello, I would like to share with you the restoration work of my Alfa Romeo 147 GTA. I was looking for a Rosso Alfa or white Bianco Nuvola GTA 147 to resore for about a year, when at the beginning of September I finally found it, about an hour from my house (I'm living in Lecco, near Milano)...
  7. Car and Driver claims RWD Giulietta in the works

    General Alfa Discussion Well this may well turn out to be another piece of speculative nonsense which is typical for auto websites but I do hope that it is true. RWD or FWD, AR needs a great hatchback in its line up and current model is getting a...
  8. Cheap parking sensor that works!

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Had the 'parking help not available' on my 06 Brera, and the dreadful audible every time I engaged reverse. Found which sensor wasn't working by touch and listening for clicks and pulses. It was one of the 'inner' (closest to number plate). Took a punt on a cheap sensor on Ebay £7.55...
  9. DNA - Only D & A works

    Alfa Giulia
    Dear All, Did a search and could not find ANYTHING on DNA. Basically when you turn the DNA control from D to N on the display it goes from D to A! Then switching from N to A the display stays on A. Then switch from A to N the display goes from A to D. etc etc etc.. So in summary the N seems...
  10. No bluetooth display, but B and M still works?!

    ICE & Blue&Me
    As title suggests. My bluetooth symbol and Vodafone display in the centre of the dash has gone. The phone says it is hooking up, the calls still come and go from the B and M but no display. Random. Anyone have any ideas on this one? Cheers.
  11. Air con works again

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I just had my air con done with the local specialist, he recovered 205g and 1cc of oil. He pressure and vacum tested and he found the o ring missing on compressor where the two pipes join, silly ol me forgot to put it back when I changed all the pipes, condenser and dryer. Cost me £45 and he...
  12. Which diagnostic tool works with an 05 156 JTS?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As it says I looked at the Alfadiag site but couldn't see clearly if the 50 JTS was covered and the Fiatwhateritis download site asks for a logon. I assume this model is fully OBD II compliant? One more thing, how do I get one of Rarebear's leads? Do I just PM him?
  13. Alloy whel cleaner that actually works

    Car Detailing
    I'm not a detailing expert by any means, but have just finished going at it with Autoglym HD wax (hard work!) and I decided that I'd try and clean the wheels up after all the salt etc of the last couple of months. I had been using a Simoniz cleaner and brake dust repellent which was supposed to...
  14. Selespeed works when off, But not when the engine is on

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, my Selespeed goes into gear all the time when you change with the engine off. But as soon as you turn the engine on it selects gears when it wants to. Is there a reason for this? regards geogre
  15. Vortex Exhaust - it works!!

    Tuning & Upgrades
    Right so you may know I had a S/S straight through Catback system from Torque Exhausts with 2 centre silencers and reduced width 2.25" centre pipe. That system really pushed up my low end torque by a hell of a lot using increased back pressure, but this stiffled my high end to the point that...
  16. off on my works do in Camden

    Way Off Topic
    Wish me luck! I think I will end the night in a gutter :D :thumbs:
  17. 2 Key Fobb'd Keys For Alarm, Both Light, One Works

    Alfa 145 & 146
    HELP! The mrs is now coming to work with me in my car and going to leave the car 10 mins later than me, so i thought i would give her the other key to the car so she can remote lock it and activate the alarm. I get back to the car before her, a good 1/2 hour and so will sit in the car and...
  18. MultiAir V8 in the works for Alfa

    General Alfa Discussion
    Alfa Romeo is secretly working on a high-powered, fuel-sipping V8. Though details are scarce, sources insist on dampening expectations of a huge-capacity, US-style engine. Instead, the engine should be a relatively small-capacity motor, fitted with the Fiat Group's MultiAir inlet valve...
  19. Poltergoost in the works..

    Alfa 155
    My old beast seems to have collected some water on the back of the fusebox during the recent rain. Either it's leaked in from somewhere or it was just very heavy condensation (the whole car was more than usually "condensed" inside .. ). Any road up.. no surprise that the electrics have gone...
  20. Giving my Ti the full works

    Car Detailing
    I've been a busy boy today. First off I washed the car, then whilst still yet I clayed it with Bilt Hamber soft clay, using a mixture of shampoo and lots of water through my hose gun as lube, then I washed it again and dried it. Then for some AG SRP applied with those excellent palm pads...
