AnswerOpen and read your owner's manual. AnswerI am looking for the answer to the same question.Before the same answer is posted let me expand further.

Tha users manual tells you to use the key control located below the dash, however it states in a sub note that the UK model does not have the key control feature but does not go on to explain an alternative method.

I have tried disconnecting the battery but this was no help.

Some other cars such as VW have an override via the ignition key in the drivers door lock and a sequence of left and right turns.

Any ideas appreciated.

Why does Alfa Romeo 147 selespeed only go into 1st and 2nd gear?

The usual reason either the hydraulic pump on the Selespeed gearbox or the actuators - both need Alfa specialist care and rarely solve the problem fully or for very long.

What does 'Civil blood' mean in Romeo and Juliet?

"Two households, both alike in dignity

In fair Verona where we lay our scene,

From ancient grudge break to new mutiny

Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean."

The word "civil" means "from the city" (Latin civitate), as in "civil servant". It can also mean polite or well-behaved, as "keep a civil tongue in your head." Using the first meaning, the phrase is quite literal, where the blood of the city (or rather the blood of the people of the city) makes their hands dirty. But there is also a play on the second meaning, so that the phrase can also be taken to mean, where the blood of the people of the city makes their well-behaved hands dirty--in other words, their good behaviour is tarnished with their blood.

How reliable are Alfa Romeo Spiders?

Alfa Romeos in general, and especially models prior to the year 2000, are not considered to be very reliable cars. The Spider model is not an exception to this rule, although the current-generation Alfa Spider, based on the Brera coupe, is relatively more reliable. But hey, if you consider yourself a real 'Alfisti', the reliability issues shouldn't bother you.

Can you winterize an Alfa Romeo Spider?

Just put on a good set of winter tires and check your heater system, that's it! It all depends, of course, on your climate. If you live in a place with a cold and snowy winter, you might want to put away the Alfa for the season and take it back out when the snow has melted. The Spider won't be very warm and won't handle the snow very well, and the dampness could cause more rust and deterioration.

What does the symbols on Alfa Romeo sign mean?

the red cross is for milan and the serpent is eating a saracen aparently milan was big at the time of the crusades

In 1910 a draughtsman named Romano Cattaneo was given the job of coming up with a badge for a new Milan-based company, ALFA. The story goes that as he was waiting for a tram at the Piazza Castello terminus in Milan, he gained inspiration from the great Visconti family's red cross and biscione (human child-bearing serpent) coat of arms emblazoned over the great door of Castello Sforzesco. In 1918 after the company was purchased by Nicola Romeo, the badge was redesigned with the help of Giuseppe Merosi, including now the City of Milan's emblem and that of the Visconti family in a circular motif, bordered by a dark blue metallic ring containing the inscription "ALFA - ROMEO" and "MILANO" separated by two Savoy dynasty knots to honour the Kingdom of Italy. After the victory of the P2 in the inaugural Automobile World Championship in 1925, Alfa added a laurel wreath around the logo. In 1946 after the victory of the Italian Republic Savoy knots were replaced with two curvy lines. The name "MILANO", the hyphen and the Savoy knots (lines) were eliminated when Alfa Romeo opened the factory at Pomigliano d'Arco, Naples in early 1970s.
