Arrrghhhh

Bought 51 plate 147 TS about 4 months ago but never have Windows going down.

Drivers side
  • Not lit
  • alfaOBD cannot connect to drivers door
  • CAN Status does not detect door unit
  • puddle light not working

Passenger side

Lit up but does not function


Looking at the drivers switch it appears to have scrap yard markings so has been replaced

Tried 3 alternative switches from various scrap yards and none of them are doing anything

Please help desperate for help here

Pulling my hair out and sweating in an extremely hot car

Have you checked the connection where the wiring plugs into the door from the A-post?

My wife's 147 has an intermittent speaker problem on the front passenger door, wiggling the connecting cable between the door and A pillar makes it work. (just lazy, haven't got around to sorting it)

Is this in the door hinge inside the covering with a blue clip on?

Can you remove that black covering ?

It's the only bit of rubber trunking between the A pillar and the door. Give it a wiggle and see if that helps. It may be a cut wire, or simply a dirty connection that could be resolved with electrical contact cleaner spray :thumbs:

Bad news :(


In an attempt to check the loom I unclipped it from the door.

Everything looked in order so tried to pay it back on , now the mount on the door has snapped and is going inside the door, unable to reconnect loom
