Queensland / Re: 2002 Twin Spark Spider. Air bag warning light module
« Last post by Guzzisti on October 31, 2020, 07:40:14 PM »
Hi Baz,
Many thanks for your reply and advice. My Spider is now back on the road😃
A couple of days after posting the repairer/dealer contacted me saying the module in question could not be repaired due to possible litigation should the air bag fail in an accident situation. They have since sourced a replacement module . I am not sure if it is new or otherwise.
All is working well. Thanks again.

Did you get an owners manual with the car?

All that information is contained within.

If you don't, an owners manual can be downloaded from here -

Hi
Thank you so much for your help guys.
specimenX it worked perfectly with the badge set up
Thank you so much.

kaleuclint thank you for the link and for explaining the 2 different cars you have with the difference in boot release and with the USB charger idea.

Another 2 questions.

On the roof light panel, I have a light that flashes when I insert the key in with a backwards facing person .it turns off after a few seconds.is that a warning light for child restraint? Trying to upload pics but saying files to large.

And on the right side of the steering wheel the panel with the dial for lifting and lowering the headlights, there is a km button what's that for? also a P button that does nothing when I press it ?

Then 2 buttons far right of the panel with headlight symbol. The top one is fog light that works but the bottom does nothing.

Kind regards Maria

My 2.2 had the internal boot release button; my Ti has the badge-push.  You get one or the other.

I have two cigarette lighters somewhere, and two ashtrays, but no idea where I put them.  First things I remove.  If you're not a smoker Maria (a practice forbidden in all my cars), just get yourself a USB charger instead.  Much more useful and better for everyone.

You might want to look at this thread:

159s have lots of features not revealed in the owners manual, but what you get depends upon the year.

I am sure if they have one,  they would be able to ship/freight to Portugal.

Good move to hang in there with the 32's.  Although the 34mm diameter is 6.25% greater than the 32mm, the "theoretical" choke area of the 34mm is 13% greater!  No point having "theoretically" 13% more flow potential if your not going to use it!  Besides..............there is no substitute for gas velocity!

That's the one. You'll know if its equipped with push button as the badge will have a "spring" to it. If it does have a spring to it and still not opening follow the instructions detailed in this thread regarding Independant boot release and set to on. Once enabled, lock the car with FOB, then unlock immediately with FOB again. You should now be able to push the badge to open boot.

"Alfettaman" was breaking up a 75 a little while ago.  I grabbed some bits.  The car appeared very rust free.
Try searching Buy/Swap/Sell.

I would be looking to get a replacement bailey channel, rather than repairing it, if at all possible.
