Alfa Code System problems

Hey all,

I have a 1997 GTV T.Spark that is having a spot of bother .....

She seems to not want to move for me, No matter what key I use in the ignition the KeyCode light flashes and the injection warning light stays on.

Any suggestions before I send it off to the shop ?

I bet you had a flat battery recently didn't you?

Your keycode memory has reset itself, it's a common problem after battery discharge or short circuit. If you dig out your manual you will find a 4 digit security code on a seperate card and instructions on how to perform the "Emergency starting procedure". It's a pretty tedious procedure (I know from experience) but it'll get the car going.

Take the master key (the square shaped dark red one) down to your local Alfa dealer with the car and they can reprogram the system for you, shouldn't take them more than 15 minutes to sort it out...

Where has he been?

Try looking in your owners manual, it should say something about this.
I think you should enter the code manually using the gas pedal. The code is the one on the code card supplied with your car.
Hope this helps

Had something similiar recently when the code light stayed on but didnt flash. This happens on 155's, not sure about other models, anyway, changed the battery and its sorted.

Cheers guys, Yep had a flat battery the other day.

I'll dig out the little card thingy and give it a shot!
