Re: Remote locking / alarm
I have posted here on my key saga before. I don't have any solutions but share your experience.To summarize:
Remote for doors, not tailgate ( its a Sportwagon) stopped working, and key rattles. Pulled key apart and found surface mount switch had come unsoldered. Resoldered switch ( it's tricky - I've had training ). All OK. Then spare packs up altogether. Still flashes, but does not activate locks. BTW, I found that after removing key battery the led does stay on, but after 3 presses, goes back to normaL.
Then my original key stops working. Now I'm stuffed. There is supposed to be a code number you get when you buy the car in case you need a new key, but the form was never filled in for me. The dealer I bought the car from no longer sells or services Alfa but I found someone who may be able to help and is due to call me next week. The dealer is Alan Day.
In the meantime, Ryan, the NVQ student picks up my key from the desk: "Wow, you've got an Alfa, Cool!" he exclaims, then goes off for his fourteenth mid-morning snack.
The key has worked perfectly ever since...
