Alfa Romeo 156 will not start asking for code
I am in a bit of a pickle. I have emigrated to Australia and shipped my car over. I asked the moving company to disconnect the battery while they were shipping it. They did this and it was fine until it got to Australia. Then another company had to bring it to where I live. Then the problems start. Quarantine said the engine needed cleaning so the company informed me they would do it. I said make sure everything is dry before starting the engine again. They steam cleaned the engine and started the engine and everything worked so they say. However they could not move the car for a few days. When they came back to start it the car would not start, the code light came on then went off and the ignition did not even try. They said there had been freezing fog the night before but it's been living in England all it's life so I'm sure it can cope with that. Anyway the headlights and rear lights stayed on even though the key was not in the ignition. They can't have noticed this because they did not disconnect the battry and drained it. They then delivered it to me. I have replaced the battery and am now back to the original fault.
Summary - Car will not start, code light comes on then goes off, headlights and rear lights stay on unless I disconnect the battery (which I have)
Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated.
Best regards, Mark
