Flashing Engine Control System warning light
I hope somebody might be able to help me. My GT has been unused in the garage for the past three months, I disconnected the battery and then charged it up ready to use again. However, when I try to turn the key in the ignition, the little yellow engine warning light flashes continuously, and the engine wont start or even turn. There is also a fast clicking sound, and some of the other internal lights are flashing too. The lights, heater, windows etc dont respond. I noticed that the keys will open the boot but will not lock or unlock the car on the remote, only manually.
I have tried looking through the manual but cannot really see my problem described anywhere. I phoned the local Alfa dealers, who basically said they need the car put on their diagnostic equipment, and they were unable to offer any guidance as to what the problem might be. Before I get someone to try and tow me out of my garage and onto the back of a tow truck (which will not be easy) I wondered whether anyone might be able to suggest anything that might have happened and that I might be able to try and remedy myself. Any suggestions would be appreciated
