156 Alarm Problem
Can anyone help with advice on the CODE alarm system of my 1999 156 2.0 T Spark? Yesterday, I went to unlock the car, pressed the button on the key and it beeped twice very quietly, but the central locking didn't go off. Further attempts produced nothing at all. The LED on the dashboard is off, but I don't want to open the door in case it sets off the alarm and I can't turn it off again.
The car hadn't been driven for about 7 days, although I have left it longer than this without problem. I have spoken to an Alfa dealer who said that it could be anything and until they get it on the diagnostic computer, they can't tell. But if the immobiliser is activated, I can't start the car anyway!
I have my local mechanic going to look today, but wondered if anyone else has had similar problems with these alarms. Any advice would be appreciated!
