Alfa Romeo 147 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Alfa Romeo 147 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Alfa Romeo 147 2003: Why won't it start?

    Fuses don’t have any moving parts, so it shouldn’t be a fuse that’s making a ticking noise. But fuse boxes also often house relays which do have electro-magnetic contacts and a small armature that moves when the magnets are energised. That’s the probable cause of the ticking noise.

    That you’re hearing to ticking noise when you try to start the car, suggests to me that it’s a relay connected with the starting procedure; possibly something to do with powering up the fuel pump or even the starter-motor itself. But hearing it means that it’s working and the problem is somewhere downstream of the relay.

    You’ve told me that the car won’t start, but does that mean it cranks and won’t fire, or won’t even crank in the first place? Because those are two very different problems with a thousand potential causes.

    Yours is the first report of a premature clutch failure on the 147 we’ve had, so it would seem it could be a one-off. Have the clutch checked once it’s been removed to see if you can determine why it has failed. It could be a manufacturing fault, or it could be worn out, an inspection should be able to tell you which it is.
