Re: V6 Spider not starting
Thank you to all the above who thoughtfully gave their time and advice re my non starting issue.
Further to the problem, had it towed to Alfa mechanics shop and naturally she started straight away, I felt this was the worst possible scenario, obviusly there is a clear and present problem and this did not help to find it, when scanned the AMF showed up, due to high cost here, ($1000AUD - Alfa, $750 Bosch) am loath to buy a new one just on a hunch as mechanic agrees that this should not stop vehicle from starting, my experience tells me AMF problems are more evident under acceleration or load and that it is extremely rare for this to stop it starting, however this experience is with Saabs so I am happy to be corrected.
When I was having the non starting issues, whilst turning key over the red alarm light became alight, then obviously went out after turning key off, would this lend itself to possible immobiliser issue, as in the key itself, is it possible to disable immobiliser?
Obviously very frustrated here as I can not find the difference that makes the difference, and of course now there will be a lack of complete trust which is not ideal.
Sorry for long rant, again thanks for any advice offered
