I'm going to look into this problem along with the Fiat code2 keys. It will be in principal by programming the BSI, similar to what Minirib suggests. I've got some of the kit together for basic BSI programming.
To get back to the original problem, it sounds like Fiat cannot do it without a BSI.
I could be wrong, however I think the Fiat supplied keys are precoded, which means that the keys supplied could have the wrong code put into them?. Entering the ID into BSI will not alter that, they will still not work.
It could be worth a try to have the BSI eeprom area copied to file, then erased, thats probably what a new BSI looks like, then give it to Fiat and see what happens.
All the above is conjecture, so not gospel!
Ooops! sorry, I meant Alfa, not Fiat
