Battery Changed - now nothing works
I called the AA out last night due to flat battery on my 03 147. Was advised that battery was completely dead and a new one was fitted. As soon as the car was re-started I got the MCSF message on the dash and the car will not rev over 2000 rpm. After two hours of fruitless endeavours to understand the problem the car was towed to Alfa who cannot seem to diagnose the problem.
At first they said it needed a new throttle body(?) which will cost £700 but now they have fiited this and the same problem happens.
Any ideas? Looking like a very expensive flat battery.
For info car has only done 31k and has had timing belt replace in last month.
