Put the key in the fob, point the car downhill, let it go for a few meters in 2nd gear whit clutch pressed. when the car gets to some speed release clutch and it will eventually start. this however doesnt mean that the battery is ok. you will have to run a few miles so that it can recharge a bit. if not, well, buy another one! All cars will start this way if theres no more problems than the battery being drained.
In the 159, as soon you put the key in the fob, "contact" phase is on, its just like that 1st twist you give on a key turning ignition, when all lights on dashboard lit and then progressively go of, and then you twist on to start, engine starts and key returns to "contact" position, this last twist is substituted by the button pusshing an holding until starting!
Key in the fob;
Stick 2nd gear, press clutch;
Push until a certain mementum is adquired;
Release clutch whit 2nd gear engaged, car will start and a smoke puff will be emitted!!!
Go on then, let us know how it went!
