Body Computer Reprogramming

Finally replaced the body computer replaced to fix all those annoying problems (Indicators not working, window regulators sticking, and a few other electrical gremlins).

I found a good second hand Body Comp from a breakers yard (around 50),
tested it in the car, every thing works well, except the engine wont start (only turns over).
I knew this as its immobilised/programmed to other cars VIN number.

So after an hour of reprogramming, I'm back in business, ready for MOT tomorrow, & saved a fortune versus a new Body Computer from Alfa Dealers.

No way I was paying a ripoff 900 euros to dealer (got several quotes 700-900), car is worth about 2000 now she's 11 years old.

Thanks to Johan in Holland for reprogramming, he really know his stuff with the Alfa electronics, sat beside him as he worked his wizardry.
Hope this helps some others from spending a fortune.
