Alfa 156 Alarm Issue Urgent


I went to go to work this morning and had a bit of a problem, the remote key fob wouldn't work so i stuck the key in the passenger door and unlocked the car. The moment i opened the door the alarm went off and wouldn't stop until i had shut the door.

This continued to happen each time i tried to open it, so i had to take day off work to try and sort it.

Now that its light i have tried again with the same issues - i have replaced the battery in the key fob, i have made sure all windows, doors, bonnet and boot are shut tight. I even got in while the alarm was going off and started the car but the alarm will not stop.

Any ideas - this is urgent as need a car to get to work?!

Any help is appreciated.

Most likely the button in the fob is broken so it doesn't turn the alarm off. (Common problem with this car.)

The only solution is to get a new key made or try and get that key repaired. You can't turn the alarm off any other way I'm afraid

I had exactly this problem, and it was the button in the fob. My local car audio dealer got it fixed. A new button fitted in fob. 50.00! I guess anyone who's good at soldering could fix it. There's instructions on this forum somewhere of how to do it.

there is also a member on here that repairs keys, but if you go on ebay there's many people advertise on there now for no fix no fee repairs, usually with a set fee of 30ish just search for keyfob repairs
