I am now a new Alfa owner in a new country, so any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated as I seem to remember seeing you are on Gran Canaria like myself.
I have a key issue with only being given one red key and an alarm remote which flashes but does nothing (see photo).
Also could do mechanic on the island who knows about Alfa's and someone who could install a new soft top.
Look forward to hearing from you all being well.
Hi, Srthommo! And welcome to the island.
I always take my cars to a mechanic who worked in Alfa services for many years (officcial service is quite new and they were Kia three years ago. I really don't like them). He's in Las Palmas city, in the north (I presume you live in Maspalomas, don't know why
). If you want, I can PM you his phone number and address.
About soft top, I don't really know. Those things are hard to get, even more in an island (and even more in Canarias, due to our "peculiar" Customs).
You can make a copy of your key in lotsof locksmiths. I made two copies in MasterMinit (they have a shop in almost every mall of the island).
About you remote, when you press it, did it blink just one or repeated times? If just one, check batteries.
