    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Greetings! I’m a frequent lurker and greatly appreciate all the information available here. Over the past few days I’ve been trying to locate the negative ground point on my 1982 Spider. I’ve search this site as well as checking in the trunk, under the parcel shelf and under the car with no...
  2. Diagnosing Why My Battery Keeps Dying

    Electrical, Chassis & Lighting
    Hey guys, new member here. I have a 1982 Spider Veloce that appears to be having some electrical issues. Something is draining the battery and I have no clue what or how to find it. It used to randomly sometimes not start and I would have to take out the key and retry multiple times and it would...

  4. Battery Tray- 1966 GTV

    GT (1963-1977)
    I'm restoring a 1966 Sprint GT Veloce with a really corroded battery tray. The base was rusted beyond saving, so I bought a replacement from Classic Alfa. What I received is the gray primer base shown in the photos. Is there a "correct" way to attach the old vertical shroud onto the...

    Electrical, Chassis & Lighting
    Hello, Kind of a basic question… I feel pretty good about mechanical stuff but electrical and electronic stuff I find just plain mysterious… So, 73 US spec GTV… :thumbup: My battery doesn't seem to hold a charge anymore.:scared: It's the same battery that was in the car when I bought it 4...
  6. Battery Drain From Wipers

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hi, I have a nagging problem that I can't seem to resolve. If I apply power to the wiper motor switch, it drains the battery overnight. I just put on a new switch, and finally figured out the whole Off, Slow, Fast issue, but it doesn't seem to fix the battery drain issue. This is truly...
  7. Two Battery Questions

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    ALFA ROMEO SPIDER VELOCE 2K 1984 Where would I get the positive terminal end, mine was super loose and had fallen off twice, on top of that my quick release for my negative end had broken in half, so I got two new temp lead ends, turns out I don't really need one for the negative, but still do...
  8. Basic problem: self-flattening battery

    164 & 168 (1991-1995)
    This is a very basic problem and not 164-specific other than the fact that the battery I'm having a problem with is currently in my 164. The battery charges up OK over a usual length of time - gassing is evident at the end of the charge, and the battery holds a terminal voltage of 12.6 volts...
  9. Battery Woes, Duralast not so good?

    Spider - 105 & 115 Series (1966-1994)
    Hello Everyone, I had red Duralast in my car (650) CCA and the car (73 SPICA Spider) had trouble starting in the morning. I now have a Yellow Duralast (750 CCA) and it was fine for about 2 weeks and now I'm having the same problem. Today it wouldn't even start in the evening. I recently (last...
  10. How to: Replace Battery on 147 GTA

    Production Alfas (1992-2016) - [CA/USA Excluded]
    I replaced the battery on my 147 GTA this weekend and for the sake of anyone else trying this - you must make sure that the battery is exactly the correct physical size. The battery is held in place by a strap that is not adjustable. If the battery is only slightly different in shape, the strap...
