The alarm has been known to come on without your knowledge. Happened to me and left me right up s h i t creak. Is the little key light on on the dash.?

The key(code) thing on the dash is staying on.. if i turn it on and off 10-15 times it will go out and i can start is there anything i can do to fix this ? I was following a funrual car at 8 mph at the time it stoped.

So u can see how it looked with me nice suit under a alfa lol

have a search for checking the key code receiver thing in or around the ignition lock.............I'm sure I've read that it can be loose causing the problems you describe.

That might be the master key, cant remember if the early 156 had those ........... the previous models had a dark red master key
