key code

Hi All,
I bought an used Alfa Romeo 146 recently. Currently I cant start my car due to this ALFA romeo code system warning light. This light along with injection failure warning stays on. I guess this is due to code recognition failure. I had the problem couple of days ago and was intermitent and those lights went off when RAC guy came down to fix.
Can some one advise me please?

Re: key code

In 95% of cases where the CODE light comes on and the engine won't start it's due to bad wiring and corrosion in the fuses/relay contacts that are in the box just in front of the battery (and to the left on pre-facelift cars).

Before investigating anything else as being the cause, clean up all those fuse and relay connections really well. See the following post for the cleaning procedure...
