Do you see a "anti theft" light on?
Try another key.
Sounds like the anti theft is active.

What causes engine to cut out?


Maybe your coil pack. It can overheat and short out. Then it cools down and will work for a while till hot again.Could also be spark plugs and wires.

Car start but in like second it cut off


Just started the car and it cut straight out. It revved up like a normal start but instead of revs dropping to normal it cut out. I decided to try and drive it anyway to top up with petrol as light was on (But not near empty) and when I came to a stop it cut out. On starting it up this time the car revved up to the redline by itself and I had to quickly remove the key. It did this 3 more times then on the fourth start it decided to stay on but rev itself and kept reving between 1 and 2000 revs as seen in the video here I just took: YouTube - Alfa 156 constant reving


When I turn the car off it doesn't just cut out as usual either...now it sort of takes an extra few seconds as seen in this second video I just took: YouTube - Delay in turning off (The key is turned at 7 seconds)

I know the is a hole in my exhaust somewhere because there is alot of hot air coming from the drivers door area and its been like this for a few months now but surely a hole in an exhaust can't cause all this. Any ideas?

My car start for a few seconds then cut of with engine light coming on. Then when I try to start it again it wont start at all. The only way to start it again is to switch car off. Lock then unlock car,...


There seems to be an lurking error that comes into the ECU/ECM and so it prevents the engine to run as this seems to be a protection for further damage or prevention.
So you need to check the input parameters to the ECM , check the engine oil,oil filters the fuel filters and the oil pressure switch. The check engine light code must be confirmed and identifed to recitify the fault. Please take consensus with the service center before you finalise the fault.

- When was the last time this car had a tune-up? Could be as simple as that. New spark plugs/rotor/distributor cap/condenser might do the trick.

Other causes could be:
- bad fuel pump relay (definitely first on the list of things to check, and cheapest to fix)
- clogged/old fuel filter
- bad fuel pump

Car has been running fine. Parked and locked from the inside, not with remote. Few hours later unlocked with remote and car will not start, not even a click. Have checked all connections, wires, fuses...


I just wrote a repair for a guy to replace the passlock sensor, but it doesn't sound that extreme. Your key has a chip in it for the passlock security system, there are 13 different resistences for these chips. Make apsolutely sure the key you had cut, has the same coded resistence (eg. code 2 will turn the cylinder of a code 3 ignition, but will shut down in a few seconds.) If you have a code 2 key make sure you order a code 3 key before you have it cut. All 13 different keys can be cut to be able to turn in the ignition but only the right code will stay running.

Speedo will cut out when driving


Sounds like your "speed sensor" is failing. When it fails it will cause irregular shift patterns and engine idle speeds.
