Righto - help needed! Ill try and explain the best I can.
Been having some issues with the immobiliser (I think). BTW car does not have a META alarm, just the euro spec std Alfa immobiliser/alarm.
Occasionally the car will not start - CODE light stays on and engine will not fire, it just turns over (aerial problem on steering column?) Without fail, opening and closing the bonnet will clear the problem - weird huh!
OK, occasionally the same thing will happen, but instead of the code light its the injector light that stays on - again solved by opening and closing the bonnet
This only happens when the car is restarted shortly after turning it off, i.e. in a petrol station or supermarket. If the car has been left overnight it starts fine.
Ive turned the immobiliser off using the key on the module but its not made any difference. I've been living with the problem since Xmas as although its annoying there's not been a time (YET) when ive not been able to get it going.
Reason for this long winded post is that today and yesterday the problem has changed slightly again - car starts and runs (roughly) for 10 secs or so and then dies - try again 2mins later and its fine. Arrggghhh!
Bunging it on a code tester would be ideal but I live/work in Luxembourg and getting any work done here is an absolute last resort, ill be back in the UK on the 10th March. Having said all of the above once the car is running its as sweet as a nut, indeed I have done 10000km in the last 6 weeks in it - its just getting it going that's the problem.
So any ANY help you can offer is really appreciated. Sorry for the ramble!
