4. with in 10 seconds, unbuckle, rebuckle 3 times. leaving the seat belt buckled the third time.

5. Turn off ignition. you should hear a chime confiring the change.


I figured, I was just trying to find the method I tried on my 18í and couldnt find it again

Quick question about the security bypass cable- any suggestions as to how to unplug the green and white plugs? Taking the truck in tomorrow, don't want to leave anything hanging around they might find and start asking questions. I tried pulling them out, there appears to be some sort of safety lock or something to keep them from coming out. Can't really see up under the dash well enough to know what I'm dealing with.

When I installed mine I believe it was just a push tab that has to be depressed. You can see them at the back of the connector in the pic.

Use a very thin small flat screwdriver or Pic. Insert on the Top slot and push the tab down.

OK, thanks for that. I'll try that tonight- hopefully I can see well enough to find the slot.

Success! Had to contort myself in to rather uncomfortable positions, but I managed to get a probe in and release the tabs. Half tempted to just remove the tabs, since I would only use Alfa when the truck's parked, so I don't know if I need such a secure connection.
Thanks again for helping me figure that out.

Used the Alfa to bleed the brakes in the ABS computer best way to bleed the brakes works awesome . Took about 3 minutes open the bleed valve and it does the rest .

This sounds like something that needs a 'How To'. Does Alfa walk you through the process, or did you find instructions somewhere? Speaking of instructions, does anyone know if/where there's a reasonably complete 'How To' for all the various Alfa functions? Granted, I don't need to do too much now, but it might be nice to add a few features down the road- rain sensing wipers and whatnot.

As far as bleeding the brakes it will tell you what to do . If it doesnt like what your doing within the perimeters it will abort test it will tell you what to do . Then you start over and depress the the brake pedal and open the bleed valve on the caliper, once the process starts the pedal will drop to the floor and the ABS pump will do its thing and start the bleeding process then it will push back on your foot hard and you must hold slight pressure then it will complete its process and tell you front brakes are bleed then to close the bleed valves then it will ask you to start the same process on the rear brakes .

I just look at that function in Alfa. It says the procedure is done After you manually bleed the brakes? Is that what you did?

You only need to do a manual bleed process unless your changing the fluid. The ABS pump will start running and push the air out if your changing the pads or calipers basically opening the line the ABS pump will push all the air out . It will pump the brakes and do some weird stuff but it works great .
