code 2 spare key
I am after a spare key for my 156 v reg (1999), when I bought the car it only came with one key. As I understand it I don't need the master key to have spares cut like with my 146, but I have read in other posts that I may need codes to make it all work.
I have a red key with one button to lock/alarm unlock/disabale alarm and if possible I want one that works with all the same functionality.
it seems the most people have had to go to a dealer to get this done and it can cost anywhere between £75 and £175 to get this sorted which seems quite a lot to me.
what I was hopping was that there are other places that this can be done, I saw a post with a mention to somwhere in warrington near Ikea that might be able to do it but no link.
as far a I can make out I need a key, the blade of the key being cut with the right profile then the code from alfa to program the key to the car, then the alarm button functionality configured to the car.
is it possible to go anywhere else to have a spare cut that has all the functionality or does it have to be an alfa dealer?
