Anyone know how to program this? My test drive car had this working, and my Ti has this working on the factory default #2 and #3 seat memory positions. I programmed memory position #1 to my liking, but no longer does that one have the easy exit feature of sliding back a few inches when the driver door is opened.. At 6'2" the extra couple of inches helps.. Thanks

I thought the sliding back on opening the door was the default, i wanted to disable this feature but could not figure out how - are you saying if I program #1 then it will not slide back on open ?

Agree!
Would love to disable this feature and also the folding side view mirrors. Would also like to be able to permanently disable the start/stop feature, although I can live with pushing the button every time I start the car.
If every one knows, please share. Thanks.

The car I did the test drive in did not have this function. Is it standard on all cars?

Yes, these are the 3 annoying standard features i found so far on my Giulia after a few weeks ownership - all 3 would be easily fixed by a software update if we only can get Alfa to listen and make that change.

Hum. If it is standard, I would have noticed it as I hate this feature being very short I cannot reach anything with the seat back. I bet the engine was already running when I got in to drive.

I am not so fond of this feature and have been trying to find a solution to shut it off.
I ended contacting the sales rep who asked his alfa tech. He got back to me today saying that there is no way to turn off the feature, but it may be available in a future update. I asked him to pass the request on to his Alfa rep.

Regarding it not sliding back... I think it is similar to a Maserati where the seat only moves back if it is more than .9 inches from the rear stop.

Chipps
it slides back when you get out, not when you get in to drive.

Does the seat remain back to allow easy entry then return to the driving position when the driver enters and the door shuts???

Paul
It slides back for easy entry/exit for the driver, but does move back to the driving position until the engine is started. It makes rear seat entry behind the driver's seat very difficult, unless your back seat passenger can wait til the car is running to get in.

Has anyone figured out how to reactivate easy entry/exit ? I also reprogrammed my memory seat #1, and it no longer does the easy exit/entry too. It does make it harder to get in the car. Has anyone tried reprogramming #2 and #3? Does it deactivate easy entry on those too or is this just a bug for memory #1? I hate to program those and never get this feature back.

Hi Alfa Longhorn, I haven't figured it out.. yet. I may have to stop by the dealer to check on another issue, and will ask them. My settings #2 and #3 auto slide, but as with you those are the factory settings..

Reactivate easy entry / exit feature

Mine worked only 1st adjustment, made some minor adjustments, reset memory #1 and the feature no longer functions on #1 but it still functions on memory #2.

Has anyone figured out how to reactivate easy entry/ exit?

I think the seat goes back if it is forward a certain amount from the rear. Once if you are tall and program it and its back behind what ever is the the position the logic decides if does not need to go back.
Does it make any sense?

Yes, that makes a lot of sense.

At 5'6" I'm vertically challenged so not sure about this hypothesis. But if there is a limit switch it should be possible to adjust.

There seems to be a lot of difference of opinions on the memory seats. Some people say setting the seat memory stops this, others say they can program the stereo channel to a memory position. It's all quite strange to me that there would be any difference between cars.
