Title: New Delta Hill holding device
Post by: Colin on 09 June, 2021, 07:54:11 AM
Acquired a "new" Delta Limited a few weeks ago to pacify Susan wife who wanted a "newish" 2nd car......she very pleased with it so temporarily not getting the usual "you have too many cars" routine quite as often....

Dealing with the following:

Non functioning SATNAV which says licence expired on maps and as a result have new (2017) SD card coming from Italy.

Two other issues which wondered if anyone on here could assist with/had experienced before:

CD player does not work-when CD inserted says "Unintelligible" and CD player not highlighted as an option on the menu....

Secondly whilst driving into junction 2 days ago advisory light/buzzer came on saying "Hill Start unavailable".  From a quick look on Chrysler forum an owner of nearly new Delta experienced and this was traced to brake sensor-any similar experiences?

Cheers

Colin

Hill Holder pops up occasionally on Alfa 159s. Possibly a poor battery earth is one option but that usually comes up with VDC faults too. Knackered battery on the 159 can cause all sorts of electrical issues and last culprit I'd suspect an ABS sensor somewhere?

Hello Colin,
The Hill-Assist feature can be disabled in the settings menu. Seems to work quite well but I turned mine off.

Hi Colin, good to hear your not Lancialess. In the dim and distant past,about 5 years ago, I had the same warning on my Giulietta which turned out to be the switch under the brake pedal needing adjustment.A bit awkward to access but worth a try.
Regards,
Dave.
