First things first, get it towed to a garage that know about Alfas!
That would require a boat
They are authorised service agents for Vauxhall, Ford and Citroen and carry out warranty work for Fiat and Alfa on behalf of D Mackenzie Motors in Inverness (nearest Alfa/Fiat dealer) - so they are the best I have locally. The last time I had to have an Alfa towed in to a garage was in 1997 when the rear wheel bearing collapsed on my 33!
No easily accessible garage space at home just now, otherwise I would have taken it home for diagnosis. It just means that I will have to drive the v6 to the airport on Monday and leave the GT for the missus to take her to work on Tuesday
The lack of connectivity between each of three OBD2 readers and the ECU suggests a wiring issue. Hopefully it is just a bad connection and it can be easily tracked down.
