939 Series (159, Brera and Brera Spider) / Re: 159 TI too low
« Last post by kaleuclint on Today at 02:42:01 PM »
About to purchase a trolley jack and it'll be a low profile one obviously.

The 1750TBi is regarded as bulletproof, but it certainly has coolant issues:
  • Two cracked header tanks
  • Water pump bearing failure
  • Radiator hose failure
Bulletproof but maybe not waterproof?
a 009 GTV4 Twin Spark ar11670005582 Build 8/1979
Hi everyone,

Just recently bought my first car, a 2001 156 2.0L sport twin spark. The only thing wrong with her is that the yellow key code light stays up, the previous owner knew of this issue and tried to fix it, he couldn't. I have two immobiliser ECU boxs (The blue ones, code-606 73 131). I've read that it could be a faulty two pin connector (Where is should be reading 8 Ohms), mine reads 4.8Ohms. Is this a problem?

So far:
-I've bought a brand new battery (Didn't come with one)
-I've done an emergency start, which was successful and she sounds great.
-I've checked all the fuses, they're fine.
-I've swapped between both of my ECU's, no result.
-I've left the key in ignition for some time to see if the error goes away (I've read that could work)

I'm not quite sure on what to do now, I've also read that reprogramming the key/s to the immobiliser should work. If so, can I do it myself, or do I have to ship off my stuff somewhere else. But I am wondering if there is a simpler fix; before I bought her, she was sitting in a garage for up to a year and a half...

I'm looking for the cheapest route, as a 17y/o student who only works at Maccas. If anyone can help, that would be very much appreciated!

Kind Regards,
Zacariah  :)

Also maybe of interest - I saw a trailer this week for the new series of Wheeler Dealers (Foxtel), in which they restore a white 164 in California.

An excellent series by Canadian restoration specialists 'The Guild of Automotive Restorers'.  The fourth series includes the restoration of a 1946 C62500 Pininfarina.
The series is not cheesy or confrontational like some of the other American redneck "CAR" shows on Seven MATE
