147 not accepting key code.
I'm hoping someone can give me some helpful advice.
When I purchased my car, it only had one key so I ordered a new key from the stealers.
Got them to code the new key to the car, gave them the original key, new key and the code card.
They came back and told me the car is not accepting the code from my code card and so I went home with a new, non functional key.
My thoughts are that either my code card has somehow been mixed up with someone elses sometime during my cars history or the body computer/ECU has been changed at some point.
On AlfaDiag , it shows the ECU has done approximately 175000km's yet the speedometer shows 184000km's , could this indicate that the ECU has been changed before?
Does anyone have any ideas on how I could resolve this and have two functioning keys without spending too much?
Thanx in advance for any help!
