Alfa 156 won't start.....help....stuck
Hi, I'll try and explain this as simple as possible.
Car started fine this morning, drove to work, no problems. Got in the car tonight and tried to start it and it just turn over the starter motor and would not start.
I grabbed the other key, tried again and it sounded like a starter motor dieing. You know, sounds normal and then gradually slows to nothing.
I checked the battery and there is a green light for good, black for bad. It was black, so I was thinking, battery problem.
I can still lock and unlock and mobbilise the alarm with both keys no problems there.
I checked the manual and it says if the code and key light come on when the key is turned to AVM and the light is on by the 8 on the rpm counter then it's a key code problem.
So, I did out the code card, 4 digits and follow the instructions in the book using the accelerator method.
Tried the key again and it just did the same again, starter motor just slowed and stopped.
So I thought, jump leads, let's try that. Hooked it up, revved up the donor car, tried to start mine and it sounded sweet again, starter motor was turning over, but the car just would not start.
So, I don't have any other master keys or anything like that, so please someone tell me there is a good dealer in Southampton, Eastley area that can sort this out for me or someone who can give me some ideas on how to sort this out?
Many, many thanks for any ideas or suggestions, I'm proper stressed as my wife is due to give birth in less than 4 weeks and I need the car!
