Alfa Romeo GT

Thumbs Up Alarm Beep Silencing

First post. Just bought an 09 GT.

This is interesting (to me). I had an 09 Honda Civic 2.2 Diesel. I've just given over the Honda and a packet of cash for my Black GT. After a week in the driving seat I would say that the Honda had better performance (marginally), better economy (slightly) and was more practical (lots), yet I couldn't be more pleased with my beautiful Alfa. Never thought that wow factor could replace so much of the other stuff. To think I nearly bought a BMW.

One big thing for me was the alarm beeps. After searching posts, all credit to Electrostar who posted the following in relation to the procedure for a 147 (I think). I tried it, and the second time round it worked on my GT (first fail must have been my error). The trick is to fool the car into thinking it is in Holland, where con and use regs require the arming and disarming to be silent.

Ignition to on. Set hazards on. Press down rear fog light button and hold it down.

Key off, less than 2 seconds, key on less than 1 second, key off.

You should get 5 beeps.

Release fog light switch. Press and release 4 times (4 is the Holland code area, 2 would be back to the UK). Each press gives a beep.

Within 10 seconds, ignition to on position.

If you get 4 beeps, job done, ignition off.

Get out of your car and test it. Smile, jump around and punch the air shouting 'yes'.

I have read on some threads that this doesn't work across the model range but if it works on a 147 and a GT I suspect user error.

So. Now the car thinks I'm in Holland. Hopefully it won't automatically take me to the nearest brothel/cannabis café.

This only works on the GT and the 147 as they are essentially the same car.
