check the new light that was fitted it must have the 2 ultrasonic sensors and the small button. if it does not youve fitted a light from a car that did not have central locking so theres no receiver in it.
fiat dont carry the Alarm codes for the MK2 bravo which is what yours is. From new fiat put them on paper tags attached to the blue keys. But if your was working then stopped the next day i wouldnt bother getting the codes itll be a faulty unit wiring fault or fuse has blown. Youll need check why your central locking has stopped aswell as the alarm.
Thank you for the information. I didnt realise that owning a bravo could be so much fun So if the codes were attached to the keys when new what is the code that the fiat dealer acquired Would this be something to do with emergency starting procedure or something else Going back to my problem I have now had some success. When I bought the car three weeks ago the remote lockingunlocking worked but stopped

Hello again. Just to update on my problem. I have now had my keys read by Tony and have both the codes. The newer key that has never worked the remote lockunlock has the same code as the code supplied to the fiat dealer which the dealer tells me is the wrong one However the older key has a different number. This key did work the remote lockunlock but as I previously said the small switch on the circuit

Originally Posted by jug sorry i thought we recently covered this issue on the 1.4S and recommended that the owner fit the meta locking upgrade kit to give them central locking. i must be getting confused with another car. The meta locking upgrade kit turns the car from central locking to remote central locking via two additional blue fobs. Nothing to do with adding central locking in the first place as that would require door actuators in each door for plus a seperate CL ecu and wiring overhaul. Plus i have the bravo MK1 sales brochure and the S does come with central locking.

the bravo uses a negatively switched system (which is default on microscans) behind the glovebox there is a yellow relay this is the central locking relay. you can fit remote central locking easily if you solder the wires onto the appropriate pins on the relay and then refit the relay (easier than it sounds). which wires go on which pins i cant remember its over a year since i last fitted one on a
Push the button on the receiver if it flashes then power is getting there if not check for a fuse not installed. Press button on remote LED will flash if key is ok. If power to receiver is ok then pushing remote button should light the LED on receiver if not then key is out of sync. If it lights up then the problem is with the connectionspower to door lock actuator. Tony.

That aint going to work. You need the relay box the alarm unit etc. Your missing
Its not a standard fiat function so either your door pins are causing it too lock or the rods in the door are not setup correctly then i can only assume its not a fiat central locking issue. Consult the manufacturer of the central locking system.
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.
my advice would be dont buy the new blank keys from ebay. ive done that and im no better off. As jug says .. you have to have chips with codes on already. See if a local scrappie has some bravo blue keys then teach your car their codes. Laurie

stop at any point Originally Posted by blashyrkh Actually Its a good thing that the car unlocks by the handles.

Originally Posted by Most Easterly Pandas So once you start a journey you never come to a stop at any point No theyre deadlocks. bravo has them also and cannot be opened from inside once activated. There are warnings in the handbook saying they shouldnt be activated with people still inside the car. some manufacturers and fiat was one until recently dont use deadlocks as they are dangerous for people in the car when they are on.

Theyre only dangerous if youre stupid enough to activate them with someone in the car which you shouldnt. You should never be locking someone in the car when youre outside the car ever
your central locking isnt working. it could be the relay (yellow one behind glovebox). it could be the fuse in the fusebox on front of drivers right knee. even if the fuse looks ok try swapping it to be sure.
Unless alarm is installed By the way just curious why Mito to bravo Usually people go Guilietta
You could wire an alarm speaker very easily but then it would beep even when you lock the car from inside. Give a professional electrician enough time and he probably could find the lead that comes right out of the remote locking receptor and wire it to a relay that would bip only when locking and unlocking with a remote. But thats something only a pro who has time to waste can do safely.
have you asked your dealer It could be that they can switch it on. my chrysler delta which is just a stretched bravo really has the beeps and in the handbook it says it is market specific which suggests the facility exists but isnt always switched on depending on local regulations Could be wrong though Im no expert on bravos but most modern cars have facilities that can be switched onoff via the main dealer diagnostic computer
