Default Why didn't anyone tell me about this feature??? :oP

Ok, so I am reading the owner's manual for a second time and, this time, I am reading everything and going slow (and taking notes). Even if the topic heading seems basic and I say to myself "I know everything about this topic, I couldn't possibly learn anything new", I am still reading it!

Well, I guess I missed it the first time but you know how we have the door handle sensor to unlock the door with your hand while the key fob stays in your pocket? And then there is the button on the handle to lock all four doors? Well, I thought the handle unlock sensor was only for that particular door (driver or passenger front). I learned tonight that if you unlock one of the front doors with the hand sensor but then press the "lock" button within 60 seconds, all four doors unlock!! :celebrate:

I used to either 1.) use the fob buttons to open all four doors or 2.) open the front door and hit the unlock button. Now I can truly leave the fob in my pocket.

I am soooo stoked!

Perhaps most of you guys know about this already but if just one person learns about this feature from this thread, then it was worth creating the thread. I think I remember someone complaining about not being able to open all four doors in the 'What I don't like about my Q50' thread. So, hopefully this helps some.

Well, actually you can simply change that setting in the intouch system. You can unlock all four doors at the same time by touching any one of the four doors' unlock sensors.

Thanks elf. I will definitely look into that. I thought only the two front doors had the sensors?

Hmm
Not quite sure about US spec. My car is a 2016 silver sports, and I'm in Australia. All four of my doors have sensors.
Maybe you can check it in the manual book of intouch system.

Heres another feature that will blow your mind. Press the unlock button once, and then press and hold onto it for 10-15 seconds. Watch what happens and be in amazement

The US version of the Q50 does not have door lock sensors in the rear doors, only the front doors. However, whether you have two or four door lock sensors, you can go into the Menu settings and select whether the door sensor unlocks just that door or unlocks all doors.

Go to:

Menu > Settings > Vehicle > Selective Door Unlock

When this is enabled, only the door lock with the door sensor is unlocked. When disabled, all doors will unlock when a door sensor is touched.

All the touch sensitive door handle sensors can be turned on or off also.

Menu > Settings > Vehicle > Touch Sensitive Door Sensor

I used that yesterday after the car sat in the sun for a few hours. The only thing I don't like about that is you can't close all the windows and sunroof at the same time after using that. You have to close everything by activating the individual window and sunroof switches. I'm sure this is done to prevent someone from getting their arm or some other body part accidently pinned by one of the windows or sunroof even though there already is an auto-reverse function that detects something caught in the window as it is closing and automatically lowers the window.

Aye love that feature since I found out they had it even on my 02 altima, black car with black interior and the A/C didn't really work...
I measured the interior temperature on a particularly hot day when I forgot to open the sun-roof, she hit 76C (168F) after sitting
out in the sun all day.

My roommate at the time actually tried to bake cookies on his dash that day... It nearly worked.

Yeap. Guess Nissan/Infiniti had this feature in alot of their vehicles. My 02 Pathfinder had it as well. Also worked putting the key in the door cylinder and turning right and holding it right worked as well.
