Car thinks it's been stolen - key CODE System error
Hi, I'm after some help
I serviced (Oil and Air filter change) my 156 JTS this morning and accidently jacked it up when it was locked. The alarm went off so I switched it off and finished the service.
Anyway I'm now assuming it thinks it's been stolen. It'll turn over but won't start, there's a new VDC error and the Alfa Romeo Code System Error light is constantly lit.
Currently I've tried:
> Leaving the ignition on for 30 seconds as per the handbook recommendation
> Trying to access the errors using my OBD sofware - it says the ignition has to be on.
Now going to try disconnecting the battery for a while - advised?
Any suggestions welcome, unfortunately I cannot use my spare key as I did the work at my parents house - no where near where I and the spare key live.
