Alfa Romeo Blue and Me – 159 & Giulietta faced with faults

Alfa Romeo Blue&Me repair

Common faults with the Alfa Romeo Giulietta and 159 Blue and Me modules have been tormenting drivers for over a decade. Instead of impressing drivers with a host of functionality, all controlled by voice command, the Blue&Me system will leave you enraged, shouting into your dashboard. Internal malfunction of this module will prevent Bluetooth connection, cause the mileage to flash on the dashboard and can even drain your battery overnight. Using scan tools on the vehicle will usually show the Blue&Me module as ‘offline’ meaning that communication to the module via diagnostics is not possible.

 

The Alfa Romeo Blue&Me control module is known to fail due to manufacturing issues such as low quality components which had not been rectified. The module can also suffer from external causes of failure such as water ingress into the unit. The Fiat-Microsoft project was first introduced in 2006 and quickly became commonplace in newer models. The release of this module was intended to successfully integrate media, navigation and mobile communications with the vehicle. Instead, what it has successfully managed to do is to provide consumers another cause for concern about their car's systems. Rather than address these failures the parent company, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, quickly abandoned this system in favour of the Uconnect 5.0 system for future releases. And it’s not just Alfa Romeo owners that are feeling the pain, this module was installed into Fiat and Ford models.
