My new 156 - key problems

Hello, Just got a 156 JTD yesterday, and it's great. One thing though, one of the keys doesn't work. Replaced the battery, the little LED flashes but doesn't unlock the car or disarm the alarm. Any ideas anyone?

Re: My new 156 - key problems

you need to get the keys recoded, shouldn't cost a lot but you will need to get a Key Card Code.

If you live in the UK and you don't have one, it's because the insurance companies has some silly rule about NOT supplying the KeyCode with new Alfa's.

It shouldn't cost much, mine only cost me a tenner for the card and about 60 pounds for the recoding.

Good luck

Sounds like a similar tail to mine.
Justin is right - cost me £10 for the card and £47 labour

may sound silly, but I had the same issue and gave the fob a gentle tap and it worked again. I reckon that the contact on the button can move and needs the tap to relocate it.
