147 JTD, car won't start up and "Immobilizer" shows up when lights are left on
For example, if my car stalls, which happens a lot lately because of the clutch, I guess. The car vibrates quite a bit on startup and stalls if I don't give it enough gas, quite more than I'm used to, but that's not the point. If the car stalls, I have to turn the lights off and try to start it otherwise it won't start at all until I take the key out, turn the lights off and start again. It shows me the "immobilizer active" or whatever on the dash, with a key icon. It's more of a nuisance than anything else. Wanted to get a new key made, since my remote functions don't work either, but I did not receive the code card. Currently figuring out if I should pay someone to de-code it or go straight to Alfa.
Do you think a new key will solve this Immobilizer problem? The car isn't stolen, or anything. The engine number and the chassis number are all according to the papers.
