Re: Alfa code problems!

What is the purpose of this bonnet earth strap?

Hi,

I was told that this connects the bonnet to the body at the left side hinge. First, what exactly is the purpose of this braided earth strap? I could not find this on cardisc manual as well. I have the keycode light on. Could this be the reason?

Thank you

Re: Unidiag and the 164; a way to communicate with your car

Those computers can be used to diagnose faults in those systems; sometimes by means of flashingcodes and sometimes the use of the Magneti Marelli Tester was needed. T...
