As a relatively new Alfa owner, I'm getting to grips with all those little bits and pieces that other owners seem to be dealing with! But I need a bit of advice about the alarm on my 2001 156 2.0TS Sportwagon. When I lock the car with the remote, it beeps once and after a few moments the dash light starts to flash regularly, but also after about 5 secs the alarm beeps a second time. The handbook says it means it's done a self test on the system and there's a fault. In all other ways the alarm seems ok, in fact I set it off the other day by mistake and it worked perfectly well.
Also I can't lock off the rear electric windows from the driver's door control, is that likely to be the swtich?
Thanks for all the other threads, I find them incredibly useful
