  1. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Just taken delivery of my 60,000 mile sight unseen 1996 spider, and it has no code light, cranks but will not start. Apparently the car was parked for the winter in a garage, wheeled out for the spring, charged as the battery was completely flat, but the CODE light would not come on at all. At...
  2. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello All, I hope someone here can help? My 156 is currently stuck because of a broken immobiliser ring - the part that fits around the ignition barrel and plugs into the immobiliser box. So does anyone have a spare I can buy? Secondly, and a little more annoyingly, this is the 2nd immobiliser...

    Hi All, I have been offered a remapped ECU and immobiliser module quite cheap. If I swap these what do I need to do to my original key fob? Do I just need to swap the transponder to the new one or is it a lot more complicated? Thanks, BM
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Theres a 159 up for sale near me which im interested in but wont start and was listed as immobiliser fault because that's what the dash was displaying and when you press start nothing happened. Dead. But now he's saying that the immobiliser fault doesnt come up on the dash and when you press...
  5. Alfa 164 & 166
    Hi, I've a problem with the immobiliser on a 166 I'm buying. The car was starting fine but was parked up 2 weeks ago. We tried to jump start it as the battery was weak. No go and the key code sign is coming up on the dash. Any ideas/suggestions on what could be the problem?

    I have a used ECU but no key and no code box for it. I know someone can disable the immobiliser but I havent found anyone yet. Any ideas who i can try?

  8. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Had it in body shop for sills and front bumper respray, he went to start it this morning and it said immobiliser failure on the dash, sent my old man down to check the wires to ignition, all fine, showing VDC error now on the dash, not immobiliser. Guy said it also makes a ticking noise...
  9. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hello All, I have a 1995 Phase 1 Spider V6 12V import converted to RHD (916S1). The car has been great but now it has the immobiliser problem. I only have one normal key. Plus to change the locks, barrels and ECU is virtually impossible as this is such a rare car. I was advised to simply remove...
  10. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi, my Spider is currently off the road because it needs an immobiliser aerial - the one that fits to the ignition barrel. Has anybody got a spare one that they'd like to sell?
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Moved the early 1999 156 out of the shed and the key broke off in the ignition blocking the area with the car. Ended up breaking the ignition lock to move the car out of the way. For the moment i have taped the lock busted key together with the outer part of the lock. The inner part has a...
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    147 Immobiliser light come on, no start? Just spent a couple of days between the rain putting an alternator in a 2006 147 manual and the immobiliser light has come on and they car won't start. Don't have that key. Any clues? I have disconnected the battery before and never had a problem but...
  13. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I realise there's already plenty of threads on immobiliser faults, but bear with me ... My car decided to throw an immobiliser error whilst in heavy traffic yesterday. Emotions ran high trying to get it off the road, but I'm glad it did it in slow-moving town traffic rather than when...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Recently acquired a 147 Lusso 2.0TS with 40K ( all service history ) from 2005 via a private sale. When i got it home i put a new timing belt, balance belt, aux belt + tensioners and idlers and a variator along with the usual service, using genuine parts. All has run well for about 1000...
  15. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi chaps... Its playing up.. Randomly goes off whilst driving ,have disconnected the noise side of things but the hazards still come on. Cheers for search a pain on my phone and I won't be near a computer for 24 hrs.
  16. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    The immobiliser on my Spider keeps kicking in and car will not start. I disconnected the alarm and this cured the fault but it's now reappeared. It would not start this morning but started 1st time this afternoon. Any help please?
  17. Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi folks, A couple of years ago my Ph2 GTV (Cobra alarm) started occasionally (once every 4 months) not starting the fuel pump/turning over. The solution seemed to be go back into the office, have a brew for 15 minutes with the car on the naughty step, return and everything is fine again...
  18. Alfa MiTo
    Was just looking at the current 0% deal on the Mito Progression TwinAir - the brochure indicates there's no immobiliser or alarm. They're standard on the next model up, but a £200 factory option for the Progression. Is this true? No security at all?

    Looking for a supplier who doesn't charge too much. My keys look a bit ratty from ex ownership. Edit: "buy" rather than "by".
  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All - hoping some one might be able to shed some light on this for me as my car is currently immobile... Here's what happened - towards the end of a 50 mile journey, stuck in stop/start traffic, somehow I managed to stall the car. After stalling, it wouldn't start - instead bringing up...
