Alfa Romeo 147


I just purchased an Alfa 147 02 reg.
It only came with the black key that does not work the central locking or boot.
Thinking this might be a cheap fix a bought a new Battery for the key, but just me luck, still it does not work.
Any suggestions as to how this can be reprogrammed will be great.

Cheers Dave

Re: Dave

If there is no resistance when pushing the button the key then the key micro switch is broken.

A main dealer will charge you £150 for a new key. I would just either resolder the micro switch or get Chris to do it from here. If that is the problem.

Hi Dave - welcome.

Strange name for a thread though.

Re: Dave

Many thanks for your responses.
Unfortunately the key does not work the alarm either. The red light flashes and there is some resistance in the buttons.
Someone told me that certain cars need programming again?? not sure if this is the case or problem.
Any cheaper options to try 1st would be great.
