Alfa Key


Just bought my first Alfa gtv....and the key (shown in photo attached) is the only key that came with it. The remote central button on the side does not work, but hopefully that is only a case of changing the battery? Is there any way of getteing a new set of car keys cut with remote locking without having to take locks off my car or having to send my only key away (as need car to get around)!

Thanks in waiting,

To be honest I am fairly sure without the brown master key, you'll need the whole lot changed (i.e. locks, keys, the whole shabang) Are you sure it doesn't just need a battery? I am sure someone may be able to help more than I, but without that brown master, you are stuck I think.

The master key is for programming keys to deactivate the immobiliser, but you should be able to get keys cloned for that at your local locksmith.

I am not sure how to program them to operate the alarm and locking though, I think you would need to get it done by Alfa.

Has anyone swapped their 1980s separate fob and key for a key with the alarm in it. One of the flip out keys would be much better.

Is it possible?

rob, if you go to timpsons they can do normal non remote central locking keys for about 30 quid, cut and coded. that will mean you have a spare at least, but wont help you with the alarm bit. try a google search for abacus alarms, they seem to be the experts in these areas and may be able to advise you further.
