Re: Croma owners......

Hi Jadento, good place to research the remap/tuning box is alfaowner.com. The 1910 is very common in Alfas.
There are issues with the DPF with some systems. (particulate filter regeneration).

The car thinks that one of your doors / bonnet / tailgate is open, that's why - the lack of beep may indicate an alarm fault, possibly related. Needs looking into.

HTH.

Re: Croma owners......

Yep, mines a 150 multijet 56 plate with 35,000 on the clock and have experienced the following: failed on day one- so say low battery voltage. Running problems for at lease 3 years which garages said they couldn't diagnose as no fault showing, tyre wear front wheels which has not been curable, alternator burnt out 2 mths out of warranty, EGR valve went 3 ths out of warranty. Just waiting for the next expensive fault !!!!!

Re: Croma owners......

I've had my 1.9 JTD Dynamic for a year now.
Good points so far. Fantastic fuel economy - especially on the motorway, plenty of room inside, rarity value - i.e. not a rep's bland mobile,
Bad points. Can't get a decent set of non Fiat (dealer price too high) floor mats that fit, rear brake pads making grating noise -though not more than 50% worn & discs look ok,
Otherwise not bad, could not fault this car for everyday use, the lads at work have me down as an old man now though.

Re: Croma owners......

Hi everybody,

just bought my first Croma, it's a 03/2008 1.9 JTD MultiJet 16V Elegance GPS 150 ch with 22500 kms and deep blue colour.
No problem so far, lots of pleasure to drive it (i had Renault ScÚnic and Peugeot 206 before this one).
One thing : i'm still looking for firmware version of Connect Nav+ (doesn't display on Fiat startup screen) and don't know if there is an hidden menu (like Stilo).

Re: Croma owners......

Wow! March 2008 is a Mark II Croma and I'm not sure I've seen one here before. I don't think there are any MarkII Croma's here in the UK.

I think we could be asking you more questions than you ask us! :-)

As for Connect Nav+ I have no info/advice. As you say the Stilo used to display the version in the bottom right corner of the display.

All I can suggest is that you completely explore all menus available.
