FIAT BRAVO Radio staying on when car ignition switches off

Just wondered if anyone knew why my radio decides to stay on when the car is switched off. Is this meant to be the case and can i make it so it doesnt do this Any help appreciated. Thanks.

FIAT BRAVA 182 Help I have no Red Key for my Fiat bravo 1.4 98

Good afternoon all I have a massive problem.............I bought a fiat bravo 1.4 and was given just 2 blue keys. It started well and i drove it home fine. As i went to start it up the next morning a yellow light showed up on the dash with a key and writing on it saying code. I have since found out that i need a red key to get it up and running again but i dont have one.............. Ive got a friend

mistakenly believe that the immob has a fault. if it still happens with the battery fully charged the problem is probably with the immob for example -faulty aerial on ignition switch -faulty code box -faulty ecu -wiring fault depending on what the fault is you may be in trouble. the red key is the only key that you can use to teach the code box blue key codes. the red key can not be replaced. a fiat

FIAT BRAVA 182 Bravo replacement keys

Had my bravo a few months now and needed to get a blue key cut. Dealer was going to charge me 30 quid for the blank. Then i would have to take the blank to get cut. Then i would have to take this back to the dealer to get it programmed to my car. Went to a local key cutter dude charged me 25 quid. Cut the key programmed it using my red key with a machine that coppied the data and pushed it into the new key. It worked first time. So - my advice. Dont get stuff like this from the dealer.

key which was copied from the red key basically the transponder was read from the red key by a transponder programmer and then put into a blank clone key which took the red keys transponder code. IF the red key is used for starting this will not damage anything the reason it is not recommended is that every time the red master key is used the key code ecu is expecting you to programme a new key. fiat

FIAT BRAVA 182 Black Switch behind ignition replace help

hi guys you might have read some idiots tried to knick my car but immobiliser stopped them. What dicks. I need to get a new ignition barrel. was gona go for a barrel and door handles off a mareva if possible would the barrel fit its a 2.0 hgt 155. if not will have to get barrel and locks off a bravo. Now do i need them off another 2.0 hgt 155 or any bravo will keep the chip from the one blue key ive

any bravo brava or marea can be used as a donor for the barrel and switch. replacement is easier than you expect. you can grind the tumblers down on the new barrel (with your old key inserted in the barrel) then it will match your old key. that way you dont need to replace your other locks (doors boot govebox).

in the following pic the bits you can see sticking out the side of the barrel need to be ground away so they are flush with the barrel (with key inserted). there are tumblers sticking out on both sides. assuming you wont have the car raised on a lift and instead you will have it jacked up and on axle stands then you can support the engine with a jack under the sump . use a chock of wood to prevent

HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED (great site to) Ok here the problem went out the other night and lost my blue key and now i only have a red key for my car now reading these forums i have found a wealth of info but many threads contridicting others please answer my questions as follows. My car being a Y REG (2000) fiat bravo 1.2 ( ) Can i make 2 NEW blue keys from the red key (NOT COPIES) as i have allready

Heres a test for checking the red key is in fact a red key. switch ignition on with red key immobiliser should come on then go out. switch ignition off then straight away switch ignition back on with red key if the key is a master (red) key then the immobiliser remains lit.

FIAT STILO Stilo Starter Turns non stop-no key in ignition

My Stilo 1.9 Diesel TD Sport - Strange fault I was away from the car for some hours - parked on my drive way - key out of ignition and locked. When i returned - the car all by itself had moved into the side of my house. Apparently the Starter motor had engaged and moved the car forward slowly. It was in gear with the hand break on. It completely discharged the battery in doing so. Recharged the battery

on the starter relay If the starter is no longer engaged then the problem is within the ignition switch. This is very likely as youre also getting dashboard lights going on and off There should only be 12v at pin 3 on connector A at the ignition switch or on the brown white wire at the starter relay when the ign key is at the start position __________________ 02 Stilo 1.6 Dynamic 3 door 99 bravo

FIAT BRAVA 182 my fiat bravo 1.8 hlx wont start rac reckons its the key chip - best fix

i do not have another key other than the standard blue one do i need to have ecu wiped and new keys can the ecu have the immobiliser function disabled could it be something else wrong cranks over but do not attempt to start rac checked to see if fuel getting thru and tested the crank sensor he reckons the injection is not working thus blaming the key there is no key light on dash at all and the injectors

when you switch the ignition on does the key code light illuminate for a few secs then switch off if that is the case then your key and immob are fine. find out if the fuel pump is working and if there is a spark on the plugs.

FIAT BRAVA 182 Bravo red key problem

Deep joy Have just managed to introduce a replacement red key as a master in immobiliser and added the obligatory 2 blue keys. One small step for (a) man........ Tony.

the code they requested is the emergency start code this will bypass the immob. you can request it from the dealer however you usually dont need it if you have the red key unless there is a fault with the immob. if the key code light is remaining lit it means the immob is not switching off so the engine will not start. this happens when the blue key codes are lost by the codebox which can happen when

FIAT BRAVA 182 Bravo key fobalarm central locking fault

[COLORBlue]Hi I have a problem with my alarm system via the key fobs on fiat bravo 1.6 16v. Pressing the key fob failed to open the car. I opened the door with the key and the alarm sounded and turning the ignition and even starting the car did not stop it. I closed the door and relocked the door with the key the alarm stopped itself after a few moments. Obviously i cant drive the car with the alarm

sometimes when the keyfob battery goes flat the alarm forgets the keyfob. your alarm can have up to 8 keys programmed into it. you need to try programming your key back into the alarm. before attempting this make sure the alarm is turned on at the master switch (with little key in fusebox yours is like this already) and off with the remote (you cant do this yet so try disconnecting battery for half

FIAT BRAVO Unable to turn the ignition.

Ive just started to have an intermittent problem with not being able to turn the key in the ignition barrel and the brake pedal is very stiff. Last time I took the handbrake off and pushed the car back about a foot got back in and it started again. Does anyone know if this is the brakes sticking or a problem with the immobilizer

Its not the steering lock as I can get the electrics on as far as the glow plugs warming up and the steering moves freely. It also happens very intermittently. The key wont go any further untill several attempts at switching completely off and on again before I can get the engine started. There is also no problem between the seat and the steering wheel.

oh dear another unsuspecting buyer stung with the fiat key game. youve got a bit of a problem there. the easiest (and cheapest) long term solution is to get the ignition lock reset so it will accept the old red key. any lock can be reconfigured to accept any key. you want the ignition to match the door so this is a good thing to do anyway. with the ignition working on the old red key you than have

Hey all im looking at getting a diesel bravo but the car has only the red keys but no blue keys if i get to random keys from any other bravos and just get blanks cut could i programme any other codes to the ecu

there should only be 1 red key. check that it is an original fiat key. to check that the red key is really the red key and not a clone of a blue key you should switch the ignition on and check that the key code light goes out then switch ignition off and back on within 5 secs. the key code light should now remain illuminated if it does not then you havent used the red key. assuming it is the red key

It doesnt stop the car starting or anything but I thought Id ask you guys to see what this means. If I switch the ignition on and off a few times it goes. Any ideas Thanks

use the red key and have this kedy code light problem usually becuase they buy the car and dont understand the difference between red and blue keys or because the car only has a red key or because blue keys were lost so red is copied. the solution is to get 2 blue keys they must have different codes to each other and the red key. what keys do you have what colour are they are they all original fiat

Hi I have a 2001 1.2 80SX bravo and I only have the red master key. Ive read various posts on here regarding the easiest way to get some new blue keys but i want to know whether my car would originally have had remote central locking It does have central locking but there is no remote button on the master key does this mean it never had remote locking or is it just the blue slave keys that have remote

the 1.2 never had remote central locking only models with an alarm had the remote feature check near the sunroof switch there should be 2 ultrasonic sensors only if you have them there then you should have remote locking. the ecu learns blue key codes it cannot code blue keys. how would the car code them exactly it only has a reader for keys not a writer. coding an uncoded blue key using the cars ignition is not possible. the reader will not recognise any code meaning the ecu will not know there is a coded key in the igniton so it wont work. in the past i have copied codes from cinq keys and used them on new keys for a bravo. timpsons copied the key codes over for me at no extra cost when i had the keys cut there.

FIAT BRAVA 182 Blue and Red Key

Hi I hope no one asked the same question I could not find it. I bought a fiat Brava reg 51 1.6 and I have red key to open doors and a blue key for the ignition they wont work otherwise. Also have a pair of spares (1 blue and 1 red) with a small paper tag with a letter and 4 numbers included. I have never used them. I noticed the spare Red and blue key are similar to the Blue I used to turn on the car

since you have 3 original keys that fit the ignition switch adn only 1 key for the door it suggests someone has replaced the door lock barrel (maybe both doors have you checked) probably after a break in attempt. you can grind the tumblers down on the door lock barrel so it works with the 3 original keys then you wont need that red key for the door and everything will be back to normal. to grind the

FIAT BRAVA 182 Bravo LED

Hi have just aquired a p reg bravo. Bit confused in between the fog light and rear window heater switch there is an LED the guy I got it from didnt even notice it before and doesnt know what it is for. Does any one know if it would be an after market alarm or is it something that comes with the car from new. If so what is it for. Dont have an alarm fob and it doesnt flash when I lock the car.

No there are bravos without the LED. It is the LED for the standard fit alarm however it could be put in with an aftermarket alarm aswell. Afterall its where it is normally so why not fit it there. However alarms could of been fitted to cars that where display models at the dealership or fitted as an option. Its not strange for this to be the case. However they will be on fobs and not the key.

FIAT BRAVA 182 Does the Brava 2000 HSX 100 1.6 Need Red Key

Ive read a lot about this red key and how it may be necessary. Ive also read that fiat doesnt use this red key system anymore. can anyone confirm if the brava 2000 x reg uses the red key system

have you checked if it really is a red key (and not a blue clone) if you insert it in the ignition and switch ignition on wait till code light goes off then switch ignition off and back on again the key code light should now remain illuminated (instead of switching off like it normally does). if it doesnt stay illuminated then you dont have a red key.

as custard says the answer to your question is the orange key code light on the dash. when you switch the ignition on the light should come on then go off after a few seconds. if it stays on it means the immobiliser is staying on so your fuel pump wont work. if the code light is staying on the most ocmmon causes are -aerial around ignition barrel is faulty or its connector is loose -codebox (near interior

you get 3 keys when new 2 blue slave keys and 1 red master key. to find out if the red key you have is actually the master insert it in the ignition barrel and switch the ignition on. the orange key code light will illuminate and then go out. turn the ignition off and then back on the key code light should stay on this time. if it doesnt then you dont have the correct master key and you wont be able to program other keys into the immob.
