Beginning with model years 2018 and above Alfa Romeo/Fiat vehicles are equipped with a new device called a security gateway module. The purpose of this module is to prevent CAN bus hacking over the 3G or LTE network. This Bypass plug allows you to bypass this module. This unit is required to access the Body control module, infotainment system and the ECM. This is also required to be used with our Euro+Drive Tuning system for vehicles produced 2018+.
- (ALL) Alfa Romeo Giulia 2.0L ( Manufactured 2018+)
- (ALL) Alfa Romeo Stelvio 2.0L (Manufactured 2018+)
NOTE: This SGW Module is located to the right, and just below the steering column. Simply disconnect the two connectors running into the SGW module and plug them into the bypass module. It is recommended to remove the bypass before going in for service/warranty work. This is not required (the system still functions as intended, but removing it will be less conspicuous).
Below are various instructions, both from customer attempt and factory documentation on the module itself.
