Yes...you are using the wrong code.

Post the radio make+model and ALL the letters+numbers on any labels, barcodes or stamped in the metal case.

Hi, my Alfa 147 select speed losers power and revs when driving up a hill, also after driving for 30 mins it starts to heat up a little.


losing power going up hill is a sign of low cylinder compression ,that and ther over heating points to the head gasket being blown , i'd suggest getting the cylinder compressions tested and the coolant checked for any sign of contamination from the engine gases etc , this will require specialist garage equipment , keep me posted if you wish

Alfa 147 won't fire


The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

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.

Alfa 147 80000 miles on an 02 plate when warm the idling noise is louder for about 30 secs then dissapears doesn't happen when cold!


If in all other respects the engine seems to be fine, then it's most likely piston slap. It's a sign of a worn engine and the only cure is a rebuild, but in itself, piston slap is just an annoyance rather than a problem. The piston bores are tighter when the engine is cold and so the pistons are more tightly constrained and less able to slap.

But at 80k miles you really shouldn't have piston slap yet, even on an Alfa. I suggest that you take the car to an experienced mechanic to get the oil pressure checked: it could be that the oil pump is failing and if that goes completely you will be looking at a replacement engine due to consequential damage. Used Alfa 147's of that age are usually dirt cheap though, so if you do need a donor engine it may prove to be more cost effective to sell yours for spares and buy another 147.

To code engine immobiliser on alfa romeo 147


(1) look behind fuse box (2 x 10mm bolts then ease it downwards), look for black box with green sticker behind fusebox, unplug and replug wires (white plugs) several times, they suffer from corroded connections. (2) wiggle wires around that box and fuse-box. (3) take it to Alfa dealer for check-up, if parts and re-code needed usually around £250.
