Alfa Romeo 166 2002 ICS code unlock

Hi all,

I spent 150euro and countless hours trying to unlock my ICS (Internal Control System) of my car fabricated by Siemens VDO. Does anyone have a similar problem? I have guys offering to unlock it for Eur 100+ so since I already gave money to Alfa Romeo and they gave me the wrong code, I hope someone has a third option.

If not I will have to pay up again. :)
Thanks for the help. any suggestions welcome

SOURCE: i need the code for

Not possible to answer this directly since each radio can be different. If you can manage to remove the radio you will find the serial number and the manufacturer on the back plate. Take a note of these then on your computer search engine type - Car Radio Codes, there are several web sites which will send you your code on line once you give them the radio details you have just written down. Cost is normally £10 or about $16

SOURCE: My Alfa Romeo 156 won't start (Selespeed fault)

Had the same sort of problem with friend's 159 2.4 JTD two weeks ago, was towed to the dealers who fitted a new battery for a lot of money. (said the battery was stuffed) Same thing when his wife was shopping last Sat. Jumped started it and took it home, once started being a diesel it drove until switched off. Wouldn't start or even turn over,checked everything over 2 days, I'm a aircraft mech and he's an electrician. Sunday afternoon I said, Back to basics test for power to the starter solonoid - none,
He said, So the solonoid is stuffed,
I said, Test for earth at the starter,
He said, But the starter earths thru the motor.
I connected a jumper lead from the negative battery terminal onto a bolt on the motor, the motor started and ran straight away. Faulty earth strap. Apoligies from the dealer.
Moral of this story - I've owned 3 and currently own 2 Alfa's and all of them at some stage have had an earth problem.
Hook a direct earth from the battery to the engine.
Maybe this can help Howie.

Alfa Romeo 147 t-spark motor control system failure car just died in the middle of the road and won't start again.


Hello
The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant teperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL THE DIAGNOSIS & TESTING IS COMPLETED.

My 156 sportswagon is burning fuel badly i put 2 gallons in and only got 31 miles for this i can hear an air leak coming from top of engine would this be a likley cause for such poor fuel consumption it's...


an air leak would weaken the mix of fuel to air so giving you better fuel efficiency but a poor power output.
was my last answer not to your liking, re **** fuel consumption on all fiat/alpha cars.but it is true, ask any owner........14.7 average mpg.......£205 road tax.....(tax it for a year and quadruple its value...)

How do you reset alfa romeo 156 2.0 t-spark radio codes? Pleeaaase!


I just bought a '99 156 & had the same problem. As long as you have the 4 digit code then all you have to do is drive around for an hour (time the 60 mins!!) & providing you have switched the stereo "on" at the beginning the " - - - - " will appear on the front at 60mins. Then just type in the digits! The Alfa has this "anti theft" device on the stereo which also means every time the battery is disconnected you have to drive around for an hour before you do it again!

Button trouble


Haven't had that problem but I have lost access to the Traffic reports from my radio on a couple of occasions. In both cases, disconnecting the battery and re-initialising the system cured the problem - perhaps it resets the software.If the aircon switches have failed, you will probably need a new unit but it may be a software error!?! As an aside, does anyone know if Alfa have updated the software at any time and whether the existing system can be updated?
