Cannot program a new key
I bought a nice 147 Lusso in August and really love the car. Only came with one, key fully working but I thought a bit of a risk if I lost it etc.
So I did the right thing and paid £148 for a new key - Car booked in to be programmed with the dealer - problem code not accepted - Dealer in contact with Alfa Tech - checked it out with diagnostic equipment no faults found?
Dealer re applied for a key code using the two different suppliers of the info - Same code came back. This code is not accepted with accelerator method either?
Dealer not sure why, can only suggest the ECU / Body Computer was changed at some point or the wrong code was recorded during manufacturing - The new key does fit the locks.
The Dealer Bauer Millett in Manchester have been pretty good and have spent two days trying to resolve - In the end I walked away with my key and the code but non working.
Anyone got any ideas - nothing in the car history suggests that the ECU -Comp & Immobiliser having been swapped.
Can anyone offer any suggestions for a solution? or best way forward?
Thanks for any help.
