Default Memory seats

I'm pretty sure I read the instructions right on how to program the seat settings for each driver. I set my seat adjustment for myself and hit M, (hold)then 1. It chimed. I had my wife set her seat adjustment and hit M, then 2. It chimed. When I got in to set mine back, I hit 1 and all the seat did was move forward. If I kept holding 1 it would move forward just as the bar for the forward/back button would do.
I must be missing something........help appreciated.

Hi
Do you not have to press M + 1 at the same time to set it? Ignore me if you did and I misread your post!

quick question, and sorry to hijack your post for a sec.

Can I install the memory buttons on a seat that does not have the memory seats? If so is it pretty easy to do?

Hi

It's not just the button, as there's the actual memory unit under the seat. You'd need to compare the wiring diagrams as well to see if further wiring would be needed in addition to the unit. For example the memory needs a permanent power supply which the normal electric seats don't.

Pull the seat off and have a look it may already be pre-wired; you will need the memory module ($1000); if it's wired already pick up a module, memory button and seat trim on ebay.
