I have a problem at the moment with the drivers side window operation. The electric windows packed in, The milage readout was flashing on the dashboard, I lost outside temperature readout & boot would not open either via dashboard button or through key fob.

I took it to my local garage & they plugged the old lap top in & found the drivers side switch to be faulty, I have been quoted a price of almost £200 to replace switch. I am having work done on Thursday.

Is this a common fault with switch on the Gt ?

The only thing I can imagine is if the windows close automatically when you lock the car using the remote. I had that on the Blazer, was like armageddon, hit the lock switch and everything would close and lock.

We don’t have any left at the moment

When you fit it you need to disconnect the battery fit the new switch then reconnect the battery then you won’t get a flashing speedo.

If you have a flashing speedo it car needs to be pluged into the Alfa Examiner and have a “proxy alignment” done, this basically configures all the electrical items in the car.
