Re: Alfa164Diagnostics

Hello, I've been working on this for a few weeks now. I've got to the stage of connecting to the ECU and reading its details etc - but haven't managed to receive a single piece of data after that. I've read the whole thread but hoping somebody has an idea for why that's happening. Couple of hints i...

Re: Fuel pump not working

so the relay is clicking when turning on ignation ?
if yes,
is the fuse in the relay side ok ?
Is there 12v ?
If yes, check voltage on the connector on the top of the fuel tank. should be 12v there too.
If so, pump might have died.

just found some more info about programming a new FOB.
It's not an 164, but the system is exactly the same as the newer 164 systems with IR or RF

Re: Alfa164Diagnostics

it could be the port setup. You have to set the latency of the port as low as possible in devicemanager- port name properties. but i am aware of some car just random disconnect.. it is a very delicate communication and if the pc answers 1 ms too late, the ECU will disconnect.. so many errors possibl...

Othe rthing is my car died and does not want to start. It might be my ECU is gone...
It should connect to any 164 Bosch ECU. It could be that the TB is not recognized, but there should be a connection anyway.

Then, did you also use the brakecleaner at the bottom of the intake tubes ? there are 2 seals under there, 1 under the pipe and 1 under the plate between the pipe and intake. and they like to leak there too.
