    Friday afternoon I left work, pointed my key at my car, pressed the wee button and...nothing. It would not open with the remote at all - nor the boot. battery on the key is fine as tested by AA man when I called them out. Opening the car with the key in the lock set of the alarm obviously but...
  2. Key remote

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Is there a way to increase the sensitivity range of a 147 remote key. With mine you have to be near or very close to the car to open/close. I change the battery too. Any help :mad:
  3. Central Locking Remote

    Alfa 155
    Bought the car, the remote doesn't work, I've changed the batteries which made no difference, i'm pretty sure it's the remote at fault but i've a couple of questions.... If the remote is left without power will it need re-programming? Can I reprogramme it? How much for a new one and will it...

  5. Remote on all keys not working

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Had a flat battery on my 147 2.0 this morning. Jump started it ok. Got to work and found none of the remote locking buttons on ANY of my keys work. Do they need to be programmed back into car? Can I do it? Can somebody tell me how (i need my cash for pressies for my wife!!!!) Thanks
  6. Remote window closing?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    As an experiment, I opened the drivers window and then got out and set the alarm. I thought the window was meant to close when the alarm/central locking gets activated from the key fob? Car is a 147 Lusso, '02. Any thoughts?

  8. 1999 156 Alarm / Remote Central Locking

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I have a 1999 156 1.8ti, but I have no clue if I have an alarm or remote central locking fitted. There is an LED on top of the dash (does not seem to do anything) and I have 1 key that has the LED and push button but it does absolutely nothing but flash. The main car battery was replaced as...

    Hi, I just realized that 147 Distinction should be fitted with remote control opening and closing of windows. How does it work? Cant find any on this in the owner's manual! Tormod
  10. Philips RC348 remote control for 145QV

    Alfa 145 & 146
    Hi all, I've been going mad for a while now trying to find a wired remote control unit for the Philips RC348 (factory fit) radio in my 145QV. The service lines on the manuals just ring through and the couple of ICE shops I've spoken to don't have a clue either. Does anybody have one of these...
  11. 156 Sportwagon - remote tailgate release

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Anyone else had problems opening their tailgate by remote? The solenoid is working but the connection to the tailgate release keeps popping out. I'm beginning to think that a zip-tie may be the only answer. Anyone?

  17. 147 remote control - key

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Be careful with your key. It costs € 176 to replace it (at least here in Greece). Sometimes it needs many seconds to negotiate with the computer and the red led on it flashes once only when the negotiation is succesful. If it seems like not working, replace the battery, mine lasted 10...
