Immobiliser chip - Alfa 147
I've tried searching for an answer to this, but although I can find loads of threads on keys and immobiliser issues, I cant actually find the answer I'm looking for!
The spare key on my 147 GTA was apparently 'deactivated' by Alfa Romeo when the previous owner thought he'd lost it. I have a fax from AR which has the codes etc, so took it to my Alfa specialist....they were able to programme the remote functions so that they work again, but said that the immobiliser cant be programmed again.
I assume that this is therefore just the transponder chip? Is it possible to buy the chip on its own from anywehere? If they're like most other cars they'll be a small glass cylinder, with code ID44 (or similar!). If anyone even knows the code that would help.
Thanks for your help.
