?84 Alfa Spider - electrical isssue

I have a ’84 Alfa Spider. When I turn on my lights at night fuse #10 blows – 8amp. It controls dashboard, right rear parking light, left front parking light, trunk lights and the left hazard light. I have searched for a bad light or frayed wire to no avail. I also checked the fuse bloc and it seems fine there. Any help would be appreciated..

    You have a shorted wiring harness, no magic fix just hard work.

Maybe the switch itself is bad/shorted?

Not getting gas to engine. Where do I find the fuel pump FUSE and/or RELAY??


Generally a FPR failure won't cause a non-start. Both your Fuel pump fuse and relay are under the package shelf, behind the front seats on the right hand side. The shelf has three screws that are kinda hard to see and some Velcro holding it down. Also thick your inertial switch. The white button should be up.

I have 1986 Alfa Spider that won't start. Car has been sitting for a year. I replaced battery, fuel tank, fuel sender unit, both fuel pumps. I seems that the in tank pumps is not getting any po


Could be the main or fuel run relay located in the compartment under the luggage rack, passenger side, main relay also, fuse for the fuel relay 8amp. Electronic Control Unit is also located there.

Could be electrical, Hook up a timing light, three leads: Power, Ground, and one that goes around the wire to #1 cyl. Turn the engine over and see if there's firing. Note: u can check all 4 spark plugs this way.

Fuse lead goes to pin 30 of the fuel relay, u can jump 30 across to 57 and check for the pumps running, if not, change-I suggest both relays, main and fuel run relays. Both pumps get their 12v DC from the fuel run relay, both should be running when you switch ignition switch to on, then a tachymetric signal is fed from the coil to the relay to keep it running.
