159Ti Wont Start

Hi Guys new to this please go easy I have a 159TI 2.0 170BHP TD on a 10 plate. I had a problem around two months ago when my wife had driven the car home from work with no problem whatsoever parked up locked car with fob went back outside 5 minutes later car would not unlock with button completely dead!!? When I got home unlocked drivers door with integral key part tried fob in dash and nothing happened whatsoever. Had checked on here with other posts then opened bonnet and checked fuses beside battery as someone had said the fuse had blown on theirs for electronic steering lock ??? never even removed a fuse sat back in drivers seat put fob in and started no problem!!!!!??? No problem since then except i have noticed sometimes dash and lights dim when driving maybe when changing gear. Then two days ago wife opened car to put pram in boot then locked it. Ten minutes later went out same thing happened again stone dead doors would not open with fob but this time once i got in and put fob in lots of clicking from relays I guess like dead battery??? jump started with leads and seems to be ok except lights and dash dimming intermittently any thoughts would be appreciated just dont want to get stung putting it to alfa paying them to think about the problem.

159 2.0 JTDM Ti


Welcome to AO :WELCOME:, hopefully you get a solution, sounds a bit worrying as mine is exactly the same as yours, a 2.0 Ti 170 10 plate?
