Problem with META alarm key fobs on Spider
I've a problem with the alarm/central locking on my Spider (1998). It has the "META" alarm system.
Back in November both fobs worked fine, but since then I have been trying to sell the car, so I cleaned and polished it up and kept in my garage. In the meantime the battery has gone flat or almost flat 3 or 4 times, and one time when I went to start the car the alarm went off. Once charged the car starts fine.
THE PROBLEM NOW is that the keyfobs don't seems to work in arming the alarm or locking the car. I have tried new batteries in the fobs but that has made no difference.
I was wondering if I might have "unset" something by letting the battery go flat? Or when the alarm went off unexpectedly on an almost flat battery whether is has got its wires crossed (and needs rebooting!?)
- Anyone got any ideas or similar experiences?
- Who would be better to help, Alfa dealer or Car Alarm specialist?
