Thumbs Up Alfa Romeo Spider hood and boot failures


I recently tried to open my boot with the key fob but it wouldn't open, but it did lock the doors. I then tried to put the hood down but it came up with the 'temporary hood failure' message. The windows were now stuck open.
The boot was opened via the cable in the storage unit behind the passenger seat but we were still unable to manually undo the hood. We then realised that the 'SET UP MENU' located on the indicator arm on the dash had accidentally been pressed and had shut down the boot opening and hood operation.
So if anyone is having this problem just go to the set up menu and 'UNLOCK BOOT' (the wording may vary but it pretty self explanatory) and that should allow the hood to operate. You should also be able to use your fob to open and close the boot.

Saved myself a few quid there!!!!!:
