Where is my blind spot monitor:
2018 Stelvio TI AWD. The window display says my car has the Driver Assistance Package option with Blind Spot Monitor listed. Manuel says to activate/deactivate go to Infotainment/ settings/ safety and Blind Spot will be listed. But it is not. I cannot find any other reference. The Driver Assistance Package option was $600. So where is it?

Do you get yellow triangles on your side mirrors when cars are following you in blind spots? if yes monitor's working. Don't remember seeing an option to deactivate it in settings.

Thanks. No lights on mirrors. No place in settings to activate/deactivate. It seems the car does not have the feature even though the windo sticker says I paid for it.

Have you tried turning lane departure system on-off. Its the silver button on the left column switch (turn signal). Wife was driving Stelvio past few day, didn't get a chance toexperiment.

What feature exactly? Please post the sticker.

See mine. Mine has the "Drivers Assistant Static package". This has the blind spot and cross path detection. If not small triangles in mirror, then you don't have it.

Just tried that to no results. Dealer technitions cannot explain other than the factory just did not install that feature. They want to open a case study. So we will see.

Mine has the same packages and all is there except the blind spot alert! My sticker shows the same package as the post above. I am attaching it.

Does your mirrors have the triangles in them? Does your vin match this vin on the paper?

No. Cannot see any outline where they should light up according to the pictures in the manual and they certainly do not light up when the car starts as theh are supposed to. Yes the vin matches on the car and on the window sticker and on the registration.

Then you need to ask the dealer what's up? Could well be a mistake and if you purchased new they need to give you a refund for that feature.

So far the dealer has been receptive but their techs have no clue. That was one of the features I really wanted, so I don't want money but a Stelvio with the blind spot feature as promised on the window sticker. I have seen a factory rep make comments on other forums, but how can I get them involved?

Go on the Giulia Forum, not sure any of those folks are here. It might just not be enabled? Not sure. Either way something is wrong. Take a pic of your mirror.

Brian, thank you for your posts. I was not aware of the rules you cited and apologize for violating them. Hopefully I will not violate any other rule while I am learning how to participate in the forums.
