In the previous how-to video tutorial we shared with you, we learned the functions and features of the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio key fob, including the hidden key inside of the fob. This slightly longer video picks up where the former left off, and explains how to use the keyless start and passive entry features.
Passive entry allows users to enter, start, and shut off the Stelvio without even touching the key fob, so long as the fob is within 5-feet of the vehicle. Sensors in the exterior door handle are used to detect the fob, and they unlock the door automatically when you grab said door handle.
The doors can also be locked by pushing the small button on the door handle, or you can do it the old-fashioned way and use the interior lock button. If you do use the door handle button, make sure that you don’t accidentally unlock the vehicle by touching the aforementioned sensors on the inside of the door handle.
The video also goes over how to use the keyless start feature as well. So, if you plan on purchasing a 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio, you may want to give this video a watch.
