Just a warning. Friend of mine had her car (non-Alfa) stolen from in front of her house using one of those new gizmos that extend the keyless entry distance. Admittedly she did not protect her key fob buy why would any manufacturer offer this facility without a warning?
I had mine turned off...
A bit of a worry this morning, couldn't get in my car, pressed remote and nothing???
Got spare key with new battery, nothing!
Opened the key fob and opened the door the old fashioned way and alarm went off, couldn't switch off with key fob.
Car started fine and ran fine and when I returned it...
I'm a little scared about increased risk of theft with keyless entry (hackers send a signal similar to what the key does and steal the car).
However I would really like to have the convenience package. The driver-side glove compartment would be great for my glasses and the lighted door...
Hi, my passive entry system stopped working this morning, however I can still lock/unlock using the buttons on the fob.
I've changed the fob battery,checked the settings in infotainment and tried the spare, all to no avail.
Does anyone have a solution, or is it another trip to the dealer?
Experiencing sporadic passive entry operation on drivers door handle - car was very dirty, so thought it may have been down to this, but still occurs after a good wash.
Dealer visit due early jan so will raise with them, but just wondering if anyone else has had problems?
Thieves are using this new technique to steal cars
Looks like the tea-leaves can hijack the signal given out by the key fob and use it to unlock and start your car, if you have the keyless doodah.
Luckily my 145 is now un-nickable since it has an analogue locking system (aka "door locks") :)...

The code I've got for my Type 932 (by Alpine I'm told) includes the digits 0 and 8. However I was under the impression that the code was entered using the radio preset buttons (thus 1 to 6). Is my code wrong or is my assumption about entering it wrong?
Thanks in advance
I am thinking of investing in these Wide Car Ramps Low Entry 2.5 Tonne Pair: Amazon.co.uk: Car & Motorbike as the older I get the less safe I feel under the car when its up on axle stands. My thoughts are to drive the car up on these and then jack the rear up and place my other ramps under the...
