156 alarm problem
Hi, just regesterd on behalf of my dad who owns a Alfa 156 1.6 2000 model (which he loves ot bits!!)
recently he had problems with the alarm and one of his key fogs wasent working so he assumed the battery died and then used the spare for a few days however this one has died as well!!!
so he bought 2 new batteries...and asked me to fit then, fine i thought no problem, popped both batteries out but then got distracted and left it about 20min before fitting the new batteris, now of course neither key fob works with the car at all!!
luckily the alarm wasent activated but it means for the moment he can only use his key and not the alarm.
he spoke to a local garage who assured him that he needed a key card and he could get the fobs re programmed. sounds simple enough
IF WE HAD THE KEY CARD!! yep thats right no key card, so what are his options ?
is it possible to have the alarm re coded and get a new key card?
any ideas how much this might cost?
is there any other way around it? anything we need to try ?
any help or advice would be highly apriciated!!
thanks in advance!!
