OWNER S MANUAL ALFA Dear Customer, thank you for choosing Alfa Romeo. Your Alfa Brera has been designed to guarantee the safety, comfort and driving pleasure typical of Alfa Romeo. This booklet will help you to get to know the characteristics and operation of your car. The following pages contain all the indications necessary for you to be able to maintain the high standards of performance, quality, safety and respect for the environment which characterize your Alfa Brera. The enclosed Warranty Booklet also contains the regulations, the warranty certificate and a guide to the services offered by Alfa Romeo. Services which are essential and precious because, when you purchase an Alfa Romeo you are not only acquiring a car, but the tranquillity that comes from knowing that an efficient, willing and widespread organization is at your service for any assistance problems you may have. Have a good trip. This Owner Handbook describes all the versions of the Alfa Brera, so you should only consider the information concerning the trim level, engine and version purchased by you. MUST BE READ! REFUELLING K ENGINE STARTING Petrol engines: only refuel with unleaded petrol with octane rating (RON) not less than 95. Diesel engines: only refuel with diesel fuel conforming to the European specification EN590. The use of other products or mixtures may irreparably damage the engine with invalidation of the warranty due to the damage caused. Petrol engines: ensure that the handbrake is up, fully press the clutch pedal, without pressing the accelerator, put the gear lever neutral, fit the electronic key into the ignition device to stop limit, briefly press the START/STOP button. Diesel engines: ensure that the handbrake is up, fully press the clutch pedal, without pressing the accelerator, put the gear lever neutral, fit the electronic key down into the ignition device until it stops. The instrument panel warning light m will turn on, wait for the warning light m to turn off. The hotter the engine is, the quicker this will happen, briefly press the START/STOP button as soon as the warning light m turns on. PARKING ON FLAMMABLE MATERIAL While working, the catalyst develops a very high temperature. Do not park the car over grass, dry leaves, pine needles or any other inflammable materials: risk of fire. RESPECTING THE ENVIRONMENT A system for continuously monitoring emission system components to ensure greater environmental protection is fitted in your car. ELECTRICAL ACCESSORIES If, after buying the car, you decide to add electrical accessories (that will gradually drain the battery), contact Alfa Romeo Authorized Services. They can calculate the overall electrical requirement and check that the car s electric system can support the required load. CODE D (for versions/markets, where provided) Keep the code card in a safe place, not in the car. SCHEDULED SERVICING Correct maintenance of the car is essential for ensuring it stays in tip-top condition and safeguards its safety features, its environmental friendliness and low running costs for a long time to come. THE OWNER HBOOK CONTAINS information, tips and important warnings regarding the safe, correct driving of your car, and its maintenance. Pay particular attention to the symbols (personal safety) # (environmental protection) â (car well-being). Any queries concerning servicing should be forwarded to the showroom from which the car was purchased, the subsidiary company or to our branch offices or any point of the Alfa Romeo Network. Warranty Booklet The Warranty Booklet is delivered together with every new car and contains the regulations tied to the services given by Alfa Romeo Services and to the warranty conditions. Correctly carrying out the scheduled services specified by the manufacturer is the best way to maintain the performance, safety characteristics and low running costs of your car. It is also necessary to maintain warranty cover. Service guide This contains the Alfa Romeo Authorized Services. The services can be recognized by the presence of the Alfa Romeo badge and logo. The Alfa Romeo organization in Italy can be found in the telephone book under the letter A Alfa Romeo. Not all the models described in this booklet are available in all countries. Only some of the fittings described in this booklet are fitted as standard to the car. The list of available accessories should be requested from the Alfa Romeo Dealers. THE SYMBOLS USED IN THIS BOOKLET The symbols illustrated in these pages show the subjects which should, in particular, be closely studied. PERSONAL PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT Warning: partially or fully ignoring these rules may lead to serious injury. This indicates the correct procedures to be followed to prevent the car from damaging the environment. Warning: partially or fully ignoring these rules may lead to serious damage being caused to the car which, in some circumstances, may cause forfeiture of the warranty cover. The texts, illustrations and specifications given in this booklet refer to the car at the time of going to press. As part of our ongoing striving to improve our products, Alfa Romeo may introduce technical changes during production, therefore the specifications and fittings may be altered without prior notice. For details on this subject, please apply to the manufacturer s sales network.

Reconfigurable multifunction display Fig. 2/a TURBO BENZINA version A0F0330m 8 SYMBOLS Special coloured labels have been attached near or actually on some of the components of your car. These labels bear symbols that remind you of the precautions to be taken as regards that particular component. The plate summarising the symbols used fig. 3 can be found under the bonnet. fig. 3 A0F0138m THE ALFA ROMEO CODE SYSTEM To further protect you car from theft, it has been fitted with an engine immobilising system. This system is automatically activated when the electronic key is removed. An electronic device, in fact, is fitted in each electronic key grip. The device transmits a radio-frequency signal when the engine is started through a special aerial built into the ignition switch on the dashboard. The modulated signal, which changes each time the engine is started, is the password, by means of which the control unit recognises the electronic key and enables to start the engine. INDEX DASHBOARD OF THE LIGHTS 9 DASHBOARD OPERATION Each time the electronic key is fitted into the ignition switch, the Alfa Romeo CODE system control unit sends a recognition code to the engine control unit to deactivate the inhibitor. The code is sent only if the Alfa Romeo CODE system control unit has recognised the code transmitted from the electronic key. If when fitting the electronic key into the ignition device or starting engine the code has not been recognised correctly, a message + symbol will be shown on the display (see section Warning lights and messages ). In this case, the electronic key should be removed and refitted; if the lock continues, possibly try again with the other keys provided with the car. If it is still not possible to start the car contact Alfa Romeo Authorized Services. LIGHTS INDEX Message + symbol Y displaying when driving If message + symbol Y are displayed this means that the system is running a self-test (for example for a voltage drop). If message + symbol Y continue to stay on the display, contact Alfa Romeo Authorized Services. IMPORTANT Every electronic key has its own code, which must be memorised by the system control unit. To memorise new keys, up to a maximum of eight, apply solely to Alfa Romeo Authorized Services taking with you all the keys in your possession, the CODE card, a personal identity document and the car s possession documents. The codes of the keys not provided during the new memorising procedure are erased from the memory. This is to ensure that any lost or stolen keys can no longer be used to start the car. The electronic components inside the key may be damaged if the key is submitted to sharp knocks. OF THE If 2 seconds after fitting the electronic key into the ignition switch the message + symbol continue to be displayed, this means that the code of the keys has not been memorised, thus the car is not protected by the Alfa Romeo CODE system against attempted theft. In this case, contact an Alfa Romeo Authorized Service to have the key codes memorised. 10 ELECTRONIC KEY CODE D (for versions/markets, where provided) The CODE card fig. 4, delivered with the keys, contains the mechanical code A and the electronic one B. The code numbers on the CODE card must be kept in a safe place, not in the car. If the car changes owner, the new owner must be given the electronic key and the CODE card. fig. 4 A0F0023m ELECTRONIC KEY fig. 5 The car is delivered with two copies of the key with remote control. The electronic key operates the ignition switch. Button Á shall be used for central locking of doors, tailgate and fuel cap with alarm activation (for versions/markets, where provided). When doors are locked, door mirrors will fold (for versions/markets, where provided); mirrors will be brought automatically to driving position when refitting the ignition key. This function can be deactivated (see paragraph Rearview mirrors ). fig. 5 A0F0021m Button Ë shall be used for central opening of doors and fuel cap with alarm deactivation (for versions/markets, where provided). Button ` shall be used to open the tailgate. When unlocking the doors by pressing button Ë, if by 2.5 minutes no door or the boot is opened, the system will automatically lock the car again. When unlocking the doors, the driver's window will slightly open to facilitate door opening. If the door is not opened, the window will re-close automatically 3 minutes after. If the door is opened, the window will re-close when re-closing the door. INDEX DASHBOARD OF THE LIGHTS 11 DASHBOARD OF THE LIGHTS INDEX 12 fig. 6 A0F0022m The electronic key fig. 6 is fitted with a metal insert A, that can be extracted by pressing button B. The metal insert operates the following: central door locking/unlocking by operating the driver s door lock (with flat car battery only the driver s door will open); windows opening/closing; switch (for versions/markets, where provided) for deactivating the passenger s air bag and knees air bag (for versions/markets, where provided); safe-lock device (for versions/ markets, where provided); emergency unlocking of electronic key from ignition switch. IMPORTANT Never expose the electronic key to direct sunlight: risk of damages. IMPORTANT Remote control frequency may be disturbed by radio transmissions outside the car (e.g. mobile phones, hams, etc ). In this event remote control may be failing. Never leave the electronic key unattended to prevent anyone, especially children, from holding it and pressing button B-fig. 6 inadvertently. fig. 7 A0F0021m Replacing the battery of the electronic key If when pressing button Ë, Á, or `, control given is refused or failing, the battery should be replaced with an equivalent one that can be purchased at common stores. To be sure that the battery is to be replaced, try again to press buttons Ë, Á, or ` with another electronic key. When closing the tailgate again, protection sensors are restored and direction indicators will flash once. fig. 8 A0F0035m To change the battery fig. 8 proceed as follows: take out the metal insert A by pressing button B; remove the snap-fitted case B-fig. 9 (red) by levering with the metal insert A of the electronic key in the point shown in the figure; fig. 9 A0F0242m remove the battery D-fig. 8 from the case taking note of the bias (in the figure the positive pole is facing downwards); put the new battery into the case with the correct bias; put the case down into its seat and refit the metal insert. IMPORTANT Never touch the electric contacts of the key and prevent fluid or dust infiltration inside it. Used batteries are harmful to the environment. They should be disposed of as specified by law in the special containers provided, or take them to Alfa Romeo Authorized Services which will deal with their disposal. INDEX DASHBOARD OF THE LIGHTS 13 LIGHTS INDEX DASHBOARD OF THE SAFE LOCK DEVICE (for versions/markets, where provided) This safety system inhibits the operation of the car door handles. The safe lock device represents top protection against break in attempts. Activate it each time you park the car. Once the safe lock device has been actuated, doors cannot be opened from inside the car in any way whatsoever. For this reason, make sure there are no persons left inside the car. If the car battery is down, the safe lock device can be activated only using the metal insert of the electronic key on the driver s door revolving plug: in this case the safe lock device is active on front passenger s door. If the key battery is flat, the safe lock device can only be deactivated by unlocking the doors by turning the metal insert of the electronic key into the driver s door lock or by fitting the electronic key into the ignition device. 14 fig. 10 A0F0021m Device activation The device is automatically activated on every door in the following cases: turning twice the metal insert of the electronic key into the driver door to locking position; pressing twice the electronic key button Á. Device activation is signalled by three flashes of the led on the driver s door panel and, only if activated by pressing the electronic key button Á, of direction indicators. Should one of the doors be not perfectly closed, the safe lock device is not activated, thus preventing that a person getting into the car from the open door remains blocked inside the passenger s compartment when he/she closes the door. Device deactivation The device is deactivated automatically on every door in the following cases: when unlocking the doors ; when unlocking only the driver s door (where possible); when fitting the electronic key into the ignition switch. INDEX DASHBOARD OF THE LIGHTS 15 DASHBOARD OF THE The main functions that can be activated with the electronic key or with the emergency metals insert are the following: Electronic key Doors, tailgate and fuel cap unlocking Brief press on button Ë (*) Doors, tailgate and fuel cap locking Brief press on button Á Window opening Prolonged pressing (over 2 seconds) on button Ë Window closing Prolonged pressing (over 2 seconds) on button Á Safe lock (for versions/ markets, where provided) Double pressing (within 1 second) on button Á Tailgate opening Brief press on button ` LIGHTS INDEX 16 Emergency metal insert Direction indicators flashing Led on driver s door Electronic key rotation clockwise (*) 2 flashings Deterrence led off Electronic key rotation counter-clockwise 1 flashing Turning on fixed for 3 seconds, followed by deterrence led flashing Electronic key rotation for over 2 seconds clockwise 2 flashings Deterrence led off Electronic key rotation for over 2 seconds counter-clockwise 1 flashing Turning on fixed for 3 seconds, followed by deterrence led flashing Double electronic key rotation within 1 second counter-clockwise 3 flashings Double flashing, followed by deterrence led flashing (*) It is possible to set the option Unlocking front door only through the Setup Menu (see paragraph Reconfigurable multifunction display in this section). In this case pressing button Á and turning the metal insert of the electronic key counter-clockwise will unlock the driver s door only. To unlock all the doors, press twice button Ë within 1 second or turn twice the metal insert of the electronic key counter-clockwise. IMPORTANT Window opening operation is a consequence of a door unlocking control. Window closing operation is a consequence of a door locking control. 2 flashings ALARM (for versions/markets, where provided) WHEN THE ALARM IS TRIGGERED The alarm comes into action in the following cases: unlawful opening of doors, bonnet and boot (perimetral protection); attempt to start the engine with unauthorised electronic key; battery cable cutting; presence of moving bodies in the passenger s compartment (volumetric protection); abnormal raising/sloping of the car (for versions/markets, where provided); Volumetric and anti-raising protections can be cut off by operating the front ceiling light controls(see paragraph Volumetric protection/anti-raising sensor on the following pages). Depending on the markets, the triggering of the alarm will activate the siren and the hazard warning lights (for about 26 seconds). The methods of operation and the number of cycles may vary depending on the versions/markets. A maximum number of sound/sight cycles is however envisaged. Once the alarm cycle is over, the system will restore its normal operation. IMPORTANT Central door unlocking by the emergency electronic key will not deactivate the alarm, therefore with alarm on the siren will activate when opening one of the doors or the boot. To deactivate the siren see paragraph How to deactivate the alarm. IMPORTANT The engine immobiliser function is guaranteed by the Alfa Romeo CODE system, which is automatically activated when the electronic key is removed from the ignition device. fig. 11 A0F0034m HOW TO ACTIVATE THE ALARM With the doors, bonnet and boot shut and electronic key removed from ignition switch, point the electronic key in the direction of the car, then press and release the button Á. With the exception of certain markets, the system sounds a beep and the doors are locked. Engagement of the alarm is preceded by a self-diagnostic test characterised by a different flashing of the driver s door led A-fig. 11: if a fault is detected the system sounds a further warning beep. INDEX DASHBOARD OF THE LIGHTS 17 DASHBOARD OF THE LIGHTS INDEX Surveillance When the system has been turned on, the led A-fig. 11 will flash to indicate that the system is in the surv
