Billy :

Hello and welcome to JA!!!

Billy :

I'm Billy and i will assist you with this.

Billy :

The fault code P0606 would be triggering the warning light.

Billy :

The P0606 means that the ECM (engine control module) is faulty, and needs replacing.

Billy :

I would first try removing the battery cable for a few minutes, to reset the system.........

Billy :

Be aware that by doing so, you would need the radio code, if the radio is fitted with antitheft.

Billy :

However, if the warning light goes back on, and the fault code remains.........it means the ECM is faulty.............

Billy :

You may try reprogramming it, using an Alfa romeo scan tool, and if that does not work, you would need to replace the ECM.

Billy :

Good luck, hope the reset does the trick....

Billy :

JACUSTOMER-9zv2r5mf- :

the car sound like it is struggling to start?

Billy :

Well, a faulty ECM would cause this.........it would also cause various other symptoms or problems.

Billy :

However, the fault code you have clearly indicates an ECM failure........

Billy :

So i suggest you try resetting be removing battery cables.......and if that does not cure the problem........you would need to reprogram or even replace the ECM.

Billy :

That should be done at an alfa romeo specialist, as the reprogramming or replacing, would require specialized diagnostic tools (scan tools)

Billy :

Good luck!
