silver60 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 .

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?

Hope it's ok to link to another forum but this is about a complete a list as you will find.

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.

gweaver 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.

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

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

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.

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
