Well Happy 164 Transponder key

I left the car running with the red key in the ignition, when I came out the engine had stopped and the code light was showing on the dashboard. I have the code card, but cannot enter the code as the injector light does not show when the throttle is depressed. I dont have any other keys for the car, HELP
I have been told that I need to get another ecu & key from a breakers.

Re: 164 Transponder key

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I'm sorry I can't advise on this - my 164 is old enough not to have this type of key. Somebody will be along shortly with something helpful to say I'm sure.

Re: 164 Transponder key

was it not the very late ones that had the code key? My '95 just had a plain one...

Anyway, not sure what the solution is...getting a new ECU and lockset is a bit drastic and i'm sure there are companies out there that can make new keys or reprogramme old ones - have a search for alfa of fiat red key replacement on google maybe?
