    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    I've finally got around to finishing up a project I've had on the back burner for a long time. It's a decoder for the contents of the EEPROM used by the central locking receiver in the car. I've used it to get the unlock codes for my car so that new keys can be added. I've also managed to do...

    When I just got the car, it worked fine, and stopped working gradually about 10 days later. I replaced the battery but to no avail. Also, in the first few days of me buying the car, I took it to a car-electrician and he made me an anti-theft device sort of thing. He made me a hidden switch that...
