Hi guys. Sorry to introduce myself with a problem
I bought the gf a lovely 07 plate 147 1.6TS Collerzione. (Hope I spelt it right).
Trouble is I love it more than her. (Not the car more than her but I love........ Oh. Never mind. You'll get it
No. The thing is it keeps leaving her stranded with a key issue. I've searched the tinternet but can't find a similar problem.
The car unlocks just fine but when the key is in the ignition it will only turn to the MAR position then refuses to turn any further to start the car. It feels like when the steering lock is just off but jiggling the wheel doesn't help.
All the lights come on ok but that's as far as the key will turn.
She called the RAC today & they phoned an Alfa main dealer who suggested it might be the loop which recognises the key, the steering lock could be worn or the clutch could be faulty
The car is a manual by the way.
Apart from this fault the car is just lovely. Front suspension knocking a bit but I see this is an easy fix. Love the way it looks, drives, the way the dash lights up & it's so comfy.
Oh. And it's red.
Thanks in advance.
