Hi all,
Is there any one out there who can help me.
I need to replace one of my blue keys as the alarm button works intermittently.
I have the red key and a small silver plastic tag with a letter and 4 numbers on it. I think I am missing the 2 round keys that disable the alarm.
Is it still possible to program a new key to operate the alarm without the 2 round keys??
Fiat told me i also need an alarm code which was on the tiniest bit of paper wrapped around the original keys. The manual mentions nothing about this.:confused:
Any help would be appreciated.

Fiat can get the alarm code for you if you have your V5. (£20ish) You can then program a new blue key using the button on the front interior light cluster. There is a risk though that your alarm has timed out for security reasons. It is then a dealer job.

Thanks polecat. I am now even more confused.
My alarm still works as i have one fully functional blue key and the one that is playing up still works sometimes.
I need 2 keys as i need to use the car while my wife is at work so it saves picking up and dropping off keys.
My main dealer says that i need the alarm code but a smaller local fiat specialist says i don't.
I also looked in the fuse box area this morning and i do not have an alarm disable key switch in there. (now i know why i don't have the little round keys!)
Nothing seems to add up with the manual for the car and what i am being told.
Can some one please help me sort out what i need and what i don't.
If anyone has an old blue alarm key with a good microswitch i could just swap that over and my problem is solved.
