147 T-Spark 1.6

Hello from South Africa

Hi all, as from Sat 14th July, I too became the proud owner of an Alfa Romeo, a black 147 T-Spark 1.6 yr 2002 purchased in Cape Town, South Africa. The car was surprisingly affordable for its looks, engine drove really well, perfect deal. Next day, the car wouldn't start though. I keep getting the immobiliser failure message. I only got one key (which is literally falling apart) and no code card from the car dealer so not too sure what to do. They are coming to collect tomorrow but they seem really clueless as how to get things going. I would like to hear from anyone who had the same problem (no keys, no code). If anyone in South Africa reads this pls let me know who yr trusted authorised service dealer is.
Best wishes!

Re: Hello from South Africa

Hi Juliet,
sorry to hear about your car (was it the one from Sch* Fiat/Alfa)

Good to see another SA person on board.
Did you check the battery in the remote?
I have unfortunately had no dealing (services) with any of the Cape Town Dealers.
Do a search for your problem or post it in the 147 tech section, they should be able to help you.
Maybe then you could tell the garage what to look for.

Hope you get it sorted, keep us posted
