156 Sportwagon key failure? help please
Hi, I've had my 2003 156 SW for 2 weeks and all seemed fine. This morning I went to use the car and the remote didn't work (red light on fob is flashing rapidly so battery seems ok). On previous Alfas I've been able to use the key instead so I unlocked car with the key and as soon as I opened the door the alarm went off. I don't have an alarm override key and couldn't see a deactivation point under fuse box cover for one either. In a panic I disconnected the battery, but realise now that makes no difference.
Alarm has finished its cycle now (sorry neighbours) but I don't know what to do to either deactivate it and drive with the key, or get the key working again. I have the code card and a spare key but unfortunately that was provided in small pieces.
Grateful for any advice..
