Hi all, I'm new to this type of thing so be gentle!

I have a 156 2.0TS and the injection warning light came on the other day. I have replaced the MAF, a section of pipe that was split and re-set the ECU by disconnecting the battery, each time I have tried something the light has stayed off for one journey then come back on again - anyone have any ideas on what it could be? I live in the wilds and it's impractical to go to an Alfa dealer - anyone know of a garage in Carmarthen tha't could help - would rather d it myself if I can. Thanks. John

You need to get the fault codes read. Problem will be finding anyone with a code reader that works with the 156. What year is it? Assume it's pre-sept 2001, then you'll need one of the following:

Examiner (Alfa/Fiat diagnostic system from dealer or specialist that has licenced a copy)

AlfaDiag, a KKL VAGCOM interface cable and a laptop (About £50 for software/license and a cable can be purchased from ebay or rarebear [member on here]

FiatEcuScan, a KKL interface cable and a laptop: s/w is free to download.


Is the MAF new and a BOSCH unit? If not, it could still be faultly. Otherwise it could be a lot of things and only reading the fault codes will tell you what it is).

Hi Gary,

Thanks for that - I've been on e bay - not really sure what I need to buy, download - I've always had very simple cars in the past, never had to connect them to a lap top!
