I need help please!
Have changed all locks on the 145TS and fail to program the key set.
I have followed the description in the electronic manual, done it before successfully when programming new keys into the C.C.E.
I now had to change the whole key set as one lock was damaged, therefor moved the transponder from the old master key into the new one (this is currently the only key that operates the car)
The process to program the 2 keys fails with the result as follows:
- Insert master key (MK) and wait until code light goes out.
- Within 10 seconds remove MK - Insert key 1 and wait until code light goes out.
- Within 10 seconds remove key 1 - Insert key 2 and wait until code light goes out.
NOT okay - the light stays on
- I now should remove key 2 within 10 seconds and insert MK again within 10 seconds but this does not work out anymore as step 3 was NOT okay.
So no way to conclude with master key and finish the procedure !!
I tried it with different sequence of the key 1 and key 2 (swapped the two in the process) but same result. Meaning its not a faulty key but something else.
(Note: The system does not allow coding of only 1 key alone but requires 2 or more)
Has anybody an idea how to resolve this problem?
Any inputs appreciated as I do not have an Alfa dealer within reach of the next 500 kms and across the border in South Africa.
