Hello & Help!!

Hi folks,

seems a shame to be a new member and have to report a prob with my 2001 156...though having read some of the previous posts, this is not as surprising as it first seemed!

I've had mine for over a year but last august it started playing up - or rather, not playing at all. When I go to start the engine, the buzzers sounds for 4 seconds, the code light does not go off and the red bonnet light keeps flashing. Needless to say, the engine does not turn over.

After this it's a matter of luck when the engine will restart - sometimes after a couple of hours, other times days!

I've taken it to an alfa dealer (3 times) and a couple of independent auto sparkies. After several hundred pounds and lots of 'repairs', the problem persists.

Any help and advice offered gratefully received.
