2002 Alfa 147


I am the owner of a 2002 Alfa 147 Selespeed. I have had the car from new so I know the car has a good service history and major accident free. The car has started giving me problems.

As I was driving the car died. When I tried to turn the car on the onboard computer went crazy. It shows me EBD system failure, ABS system failure, Immobilizer failure, VDC system failure, Selespeed system failure. The car windows did not want to work and the boot did not want to open. After a while the car did start and I managed to drive home. It was suggested that I replace the battery which I did. However the messages are popping up on the dashboard. The car starts and about 30sec later dies.
Please help, what could the problem be?
