Re: Recaro seats in a Q4

As I don't have those type of seats in my Q4, I don't know, but since they were available options, they must fit. Probably some spacers are needed at different locations, most likely towards the center console.

Re: Holiday drive with 164

Re: Can someone please translate these codes 164Q4

Well, without knowing exactly how the module and the adapter were connected to the car, it is difficult to comment the error codes. Based on what the display is showign, I am guessing that the tester is not connected to the ECU. Are there any expected error codes for the Motronic on the car? I am no...

Re: Can someone please translate these codes 164Q4

It would be helpful, if you provided photos of how you have connected things, both regarding plugs and connectors.

Otherwise, it will just be a lot of guessing.

Re: Can someone please translate these codes 164Q4

I assume you are aware that there are different diagnostic plugs in the car for the different units, e.g. Engine, 4WD, ABS ECU etc?

Since you are using MA44A, I guess it is a 1995 or later Q4?

Re: Can someone please translate these codes 164Q4

So which Marelli module are giving you these codes? I would assume it is not MA12A for 4WD.

I have attached the Marelli module content for the 4WD, but it is in German. I hope you can use that to decode the Spanish text.

Re: Calibrating steering Angle sensor

I assume you have the Marelli module, since you have some kind of reading - is it angle (%)? Have a look here, maybe this can help: http://www.alfaromeo164register.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1408 http://www.alfaromeo164register.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2061 http://www.alfaromeo164register.com/vi...
