Does my warranty reinstate now Chris? haha.
Hmm. Repeat customer discount good enough?
Ok here is an update
The dealer has had a look at the car and it is an import. They have looked around and it has the alarm light and the reciever in the boot so they think it has the alarm and remote locking.
The question is does the alarm etc work and that is why i don'e have the remote key. The decision now is do I buy a key and hop all works or do i get an aftermarket system with fob etc.
What are you thoughts on this?
Also the dealer made out that i would need to keys and get them coded for the car approx £300 why do i need two keys? do my keys i have now stop working after a new key has been coded?
The keys you currently have must have the correct transponder in them to work the immobiliser. If you can transfer the blade and the transponder to a second-hand key with the alarm remote in it then no need for a new key
Trouble is it isn`t easy to transfer the blade on the red keys
it involves somewhat destructive methods. What would help is a picture of your key as a starting point. Also, take a look at the blade of the key - does it have a number on it, near the body? It should have a number 2, hopefully.
Of course, an alternative is to make your own fob from a second hand key. Slice the blade off and it would be quite neat and no messing about with your original keys, just hang it off the same keyring
You will still have to pay to have car coded to accept the remote in the key, but that is about £30 from a car specialist or £60 from Alfa. Sorry but I know some people who have used such specialists but I can`t ever remember who they are! It`s a lot cheaper than new keys!
