No more alarm beep

Hi, thanks for this.

It worked a treat on my 159 2.4 JTDM, no more noisy beep :-)

Brera 3.2 Q4 SV

I can repeat the sense relief now that the beeps are off. On my LHD Brera (bought and first registered in Italy), the reprogramming works but there are no "4 slow beeps" on releasing the rear fog button, or a beep pre press to program - I realised eventually you just have to have faith! And I did check beep volume and button volume were set high in the dash computer. Anyway, the point is it worked. Thanks!

Does this also disable the indicators flashing on lock/unlock?

No, at least on the Dutch setting, only the beeping.

Thank you , thank you , thank you, worked on my Brera. Note to anybody else, the OUT / IN / OUT needs to be very quick

good to get rid of those irritating beeps when locking up late at night.

do you have any other programmable treats?

Try using an OBD dongle and the AlfaOBD app for Anrdoid. It has the alarm country change procedure build in.

My 'new' 2.2 Brera S - love it - beeps twice on pressing 'open' on the keypad. If you don't open the driver's door immediately another beep is heard. Opening the door after the third beep activates the alarm - and the neighbours! The trick I have learned is to open the door immediately after the second beep; the third beep seems to indicate that the alarm has reset itself. I don't mind the beeps, but I would like a longer delay before resetting occurs. Also I would like to have the flashing indicators illuminated when activating/deactivating the alarm - the later is helpful for finding the car in a large car park. The dealer I bought from doesn't know how to deal with the situation which, looking at the service record, was complained of by the previous owner. Any clever ideas would be appreciated!

That sounds like someone's already messed about with it - what you describe isn't standard.
From what I can gather each market had slightly different settings - perhaps yours has been set up for what was standard in a different country.
I've got rid of the beeps altogether but still have flashing indicators.

SHHHHHHHHH

It does appear to have been a relay, Autolusso tested it for 4 hours without getting it to break down and all they could find was a relay near the battery that was getting hotter than it should have been, they changed it over and not had a problem since....touch wood (Im now grabbing every bit of wood I can find to touch for good luck...luckily I'm a carpenter LOL)
Laurence did say he wasn't over confident that this relay was the problem but to try it, must be a good couple of months now and all is well.
My confidence is growing again but its always there in the back of my mind, should I take this route or that, where could I pull in if the electrics go etc

Maybe it was just an 'Alfaism'

Anyone got this to work on an early 166? Mine has a pull switch below steering wheel to pull the key out (some sort of anti car jacking device I was told by the previous owner) not sure this is standard on all 166's. Very annoying as you need both hands to pull the key out every time you get out hence having to push the rear fog light button with my big toe! By putting the key in and out according to the instructions I'm assuming he means to the MAR position?

Bye, bye Brera

A couple years ago, I used the magic recipe to cancel the beeps on my Brera. Last week, after sitting idle for six weeks, my battery went flat ... I mean DEAD.

After getting jumped, I noticed the lock/unlock beeps had returned. (Must be the default position - I also had to punch the code into my radio.)

Anyway, like so many others here, it took me three attempts before the magic trick worked. Glad to be beep-free once more.

I used to feel the need to pull the door handle to test, but the lights still flash and the mirrors fold, so I'm confident it locks now.

This raises two issues - number one, do you want your alarm to stop going off after just three cycles? Number two, what effect might this potentially have on your insurance? Chances of your insurer finding out you've changed it are slim but...

Am I right or misreading it? Also, is UK setting 5, or 2? Either way, I've silenced the beeps for now and sure my neighbours will appreciate...
