Hi everyone,
I'm the proud owner of an 2001 Alfa 156 2.0TS Veloce which has served me reliably for the past 4 years. However, I've recently run into some strange electrical problems with courtesy lights remaining on after the doors are shut, fuses 12 & 13 blowing sporadically and the alarm going off randomly. Does any of this sound familiar? My local Alfa specialist has plugged the car into the Alfa diagnostic computer & nothing obvious is showing up so they're saying it's probably a short circuit which needs manually tracing (i.e. a couple of hours labour minimum). Ironically the symptoms seem to have temporarily stopped if I don't enable the alarm (i.e. lock it by turning the key rather than with the remote button) however I've noticed that the courtesy lights are now not coming at all - even when the doors are opened!!!

If anyone out there has any bright ideas as to where the problem might lie and how to fix it I'd be eternally grateful.

BR,
Peter

I am no expert when it comes to electrickary but an issue like this on any car could be a + connection on that circuit earthing out hence the blown fuses. The interior lights no longing working could now be a relay issue but I cannot be sure.
