Re: ICS CODE for ALFA ROMEO 166
[QUOTE=Emoto]I recently imported a 166 from Japan. It was dead on arrival and it turned out to be a fried Air Bag ECU. $2,200 later I collected the car and the ICS didn't work. After a lot of heartache I was told the dealer would need to pull out the ICS and send the numbers to Italy in order to get the ICS working. But... they were fully booked and I had to wait 2 weeks. While I was waiting the car sat outside and the battery went flat. Scared to jumpstart (no more fried ECU's for me) I purchased a new battery.
To cut a long story short, after disconnecting the battery and fitting a new one I jumped in the car to drive it to the dealer. I was delighted to find the ICS had activated itself WITHOUT A CODE HAVING TO BE ENTERED!!! So for the people out there stressed about not having an ICS code, just disconnect your battery for 5 minutes.
My problem is not completely over, the ICS is in Japanese so I need to find out how to code it for English. If anyone knows, please advise.[/QUOTE
