GTV key code problem

Hi Guys, the GTV is still dead.I can only assume for some reason the transponder on the ignition barrel isn't recognising the key since the car was jump stated and the battery changed. Can anyone advise me how to get the key re programmed or whatever it needs to start the car. I still have the key logo up on the dash. Is the key code the number on the key, dont suppose it will be, that would make it too simple.

GTV V6 Turbo

With the key light on it isn't going to fire up. I know mine is finickity in warm weather for whatever reason and takes several key in key out's until the light goes out. Might be a bad connection I suppose.

Try this:

with the key out of the ignition disconnect both battery terminals, hold them together for 10 seconds, leave for 1/2 hour, reconnect, try starting.

I'm guessing the times but from memory I think they should be ok.

General question. My beloved 1998 GTV 3.0 which was purchased new was written off in a car accident and has now gone to the Alfa garage in the sky! I still have all the keys (including valet and master key).

I am looking at purchasing a replacement GTV however owner only has one key. I know that I can clone the only key the current owner has so that I have a backup key, however, is it possible to reprogramme an ECU back to its virgin state, insert my old master key into the replacement GTV, thereby being the first key used and (subject to changing locks on door and ignition) have my old set of keys operate on the replacement GTV?

I have not seen this question raised in any of the threads or other forums. I realise I have previously posted this query in a wrong section
