Hey, my alfa romeo 147 started having an issue when the key gives contact but the electricity in the car is low. The wipers are moving slower than before and I cant rolll my windows down and up, untill I dont turn it on, then it works fine. But turning the car on is also slower, it kinda takes it a few seconds. It never happened before. Any thoughts?

You can’t roll windows up until you don’t turn it on...... what do you mean by that?

Sounds like battery is dying or poor connection on live or earth

Sounds like the windows and wipers are slow if the engine isn't running, which would imply when the alternator isn't running.

Which I think would also explain the slow starting, which might mean slow cranking and / or failure to fire up instantly (possibly poor spark etc. due to low charge?). Battery health would be a good first check.

Regards,
John.
