Morning all

I cant open the boot with my key, but the brown master will open it. So im stuck with popping it from the glovebox which is quite annoying.

Any reason my normal keys wouldnt work?

The guy i bought it off said 'this is correct as per the manual'. To which i thought, my old gtv opened on the key.
Turns out i have the manual for a spider :rolleyes:

Davids suggestion sounds right unless your " normal " key opens the doors. ( Mechanically and not with the fob. )

If this is in fact the case a trip to your local Key Man pronto would seem to be in order. In the past I have had mechanically broken keys, you really want to be prepared for this.

I thought the "Valet" key worked all the locks except for the boot & glovebox?

I think that you are correct David.

If so my idea is total rubbish !

As I don't have a Valet key I can't check either.

Sorry for any confusion caused, it's still early ( for me ) and my brain must still be in bed.......

Not the valet key (i dont have one!)
Its the normal one with the blipper. I've never actually tried the key in the door locks.

Ill part with the manual as soon as i get hold of the tin top version.

What about your Master Key?

You said it worked in the boot lock, what about the door locks AND the ignition...?

I was gonna say that sounds odd...

my valet key won't turn the door locks or the glove box but not the boot. my brown key and the other key however would do all 3.

my previous ts valet key didn't have remote locking and would do the doors, boot but not the glove box.

hey ho, the joys of alfas!
