The procedure for a Selespeed isn't any different.
This is cut&pasted from a 2007 manual, but I think the procedure is the same:
If the Alfa Romeo CODE system is not able
to deactivate the engine inhibitor, warning
lightsYandUremain lit and the engine
cannot be started. To start the engine it is
necessary to follow the emergency starting
WARNING You are advised to carefully
read the entire procedure before carrying
If a mistake is made during the emergency
procedure, the ignition key should be turned
to STOP and the operations must be repeated
from the start (point 1).
1) Read the 5-figure electronic code on
the CODE card.
2) Turn the ignition key to the MAR position
3) Fully depress the accelerator pedal and
keep it pressed. The warning light Uwill
come on for eight seconds approximately
and will then go out; now release the accelerator
4) The warning light Ubegins to flash:
after it has flashed for the same number of
times as the first digit on the code of the
card, press completely and hold down the
accelerator pedal until the warning light U
comes on (for 4 seconds) and then goes out
again; now release the accelerator pedal.
5) The warning light U will begin to
flash: after it has flashed for the same number
of times as the second digit on the code
of the card, press completely and hold down
the accelerator pedal.
6) Repeat this procedure in the same way
for the other digits on the CODE card code.
7) After entering the last figure, keep the
accelerator pedal pressed. The warning light
Uturns on (for four seconds) and then goes
off; now release the accelerator pedal.
8) A quick flash of the warning light U
(for appr. 4 seconds) confirms that the operation
has taken place correctly.
9) Start the car turning the ignition key
from the MAR position to the AVV position
without returning the key to the STOP
Conversely, if the warning light Ustays
on, turn the ignition key to STOP and repeat
the procedure starting from point 1.
WARNING After emergency starting it
is advisable to turn to an Alfa Romeo Authorized
Service, because the procedure described
must be repeated each time the engine
