Locked my keys in the boot!

Can't believe I did this! Initially thought "s**t!"... Then I remembered it is an Alfa!

Cure -

1) Unlock car with an old Fiat key.

2) Attempt to pop boot with glovebox switch. Solenoid actuates but doesn't pop boot.

3) Attempt to unlock boot using said Fiat key. Eventually remove key complete with barrel from lock assembly. Insert screwdriver into lock assembly. Turn 90 degrees clockwise.... POP!

Glad you're back in your car.

Still, the security is better than my Volvo.... it's taken to unlocking itself by magic. An Alfa would never do that....

Re: Locked my keys in the boot!

Someone from work has a marvellous X5, when it gets hot and stuffy, it decided to open the front windows when locked in a car park, it hasnt done it when raining yet,

I love it when he asks why i bought an alfa when they have such a bad reputation for wiring faults.

Obviously the Germans are a little shoddy also...
