  2. Re-programming a key fob for an Alfa 159

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello, I've seen similar forums, but not seen an answer to this: I have an Alfa 159 SW with 1 key. I can, as you'd expect, get hold of a key fob fairly easily, which will of course not work with my Alfa. Is it feasible to: 1. Re-programme the key fob to work with my car myself? 2. As...

  6. No key blade in 2nd key fob

    Alfa Giulia
    Did your spare key fob come with a key blade inside? Mine didn't and it's not even coded to the car so I am having it coded by Alfa Thames on Thursday. Just wondering if I should also cut another blade and if so - where can this be done?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi, The problem was with the high temperatures because my car was standing in the sun. In the evening, when the sheet cooled, it functioned for a while, and when it didn't, I was able to access the back door with diagnostics and solve the problem. Now I can't do it anymore. With the controls on...

    General Alfa Discussion
    Hi, long shot question here, but would anyone have one of these spare/for sale at all please? They are obviously the same fob shape as the normal flip out key, but have no buttons on the actual fob case, as they are considered an "emergency manual key" Thanks for looking and responding...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    So in the hot weather I’m quite partial to using the key to open the windows before I get in (press and hold the unlock button on the key). Unfortunately that feature stopped working earlier today. Tried a different key fob, new battery (still the original in there!) and also the window reset...
