    How to tell if I have Easy Exit or not?????

    this is a 2010 CTS...it has the memory seats which so far work fine. I only have the one FOB as of now, dealer to get me another one. When I go to the DIC and Easy Exit which is showing On. But the next screen is Easy Exit Setup which only has No Change or Off????? So when I push the middle button all I get is a single beep and nothing, the same when I just turn motor off and open door, nothing. Don't know maybe I am missing something....Thanks..in the mean time I'll keep searching

    Re: How to tell if I have Easy Exit or not?????

    Here's what the 2008 CTS Owner Manual has to say about it:

    Easy Exit Recall
    If your vehicle has this feature, it allows you to select
    your preference for the automatic easy exit seat feature.
    See Memory Seat and Mirrors on page 1-6 for more
    information.
    Press the customization button until Easy Exit Recall
    appears on the DIC display. Press the set/reset button
    once to access the settings for this feature. Then
    press the menu up/down button to scroll through the
    following settings:
    Door Button Only: No automatic seat exit recall will
    occur. The recall will only occur after pressing the easy
    exit seat button.
    Button And Automatic (Keyless Access default): If
    the features are enabled though the Easy Exit Setup
    menu, the driverís seat will move back, and if the vehicle
    has the power tilt wheel and telescopic steering feature,
    the power steering column will move up and forward
    when the vehicle is parked and the driver door is opened,
    or after pressing the easy exit seat button.
    The automatic easy exit seat movement will only occur
    one time after the driver door is opened. If the automatic
    movement has already occurred, and you close and then
    open the driver door, the seat and steering column will
    stay in the original exit position, unless a memory recall
    took place prior to opening the driver door again.
    Button And Automatic (Key Access default): If the
    features are enabled though the Easy Exit Setup menu,
    the driverís seat will move back, and if the vehicle
    has the power tilt wheel and telescopic steering feature,
    the power steering column will move up and forward
    when the key is removed from the ignition or after
    pressing the easy exit seat button. The automatic easy
    exit seat movement will only occur one time after
    the key is removed from the ignition. If the automatic
    movement has already occurred, and you put the
    key back in the ignition and remove it again, the seat
    and steering column will stay in the original exit position,
    unless a memory recall took place prior to removing
    the key again.
    No Change: No change will be made to this feature.
    The current setting will remain.
    To select a setting, press the set/reset button while the
    desired setting is displayed on the DIC.
    Easy Exit Setup
    If your vehicle has this feature, it allows you to select
    which areas will recall with the automatic easy exit seat
    feature. It also allows you to turn off the automatic
    easy exit feature. See Memory Seat and Mirrors
    on page 1-6 and ďEasy Exit RecallĒ earlier for more
    information.
    Press the customization button until Easy Exit Setup
    appears on the DIC display. Press the set/reset button
    once to access the settings for this feature. Then
    press the menu up/down button to scroll through the
    following settings:
    Off: No automatic seat exit will recall.
    Seat Only: The driverís seat will recall.
    Tilt Only: The steering wheel tilt feature will recall.
    Telescope Only: The steering column telescope
    feature will recall.
    Seat/Tilt: The driverís seat and the steering wheel tilt
    feature will recall.
    Seat/Telescope: The driverís seat and the steering
    column telescope feature will recall.
    Tilt/Telescope: The steering wheel tilt and steering
    column telescope features will recall.
    All (default): The driverís seat and the steering wheel
    tilt and steering column telescope features will recall,
    if your vehicle has this option.
    No Change: No change will be made to this feature.
    The current setting will remain.
    To select a setting, press the set/reset button while the
    desired setting is displayed on the DIC.

    Easy exit is a pain in the bungus! Way slow!

    I guess if you need the room to exit, that's one thing, but otherwise not for me.

    Re: How to tell if I have Easy Exit or not?????

    Steelpony5555 - Not sure what's happening with your Vehicle Personalization settings, but you may be able to resolve the issue by selecting Restore Factory Defaults in Personalization and hitting enter. Following that "reset" step the full list of Easy Exit options may then appear on your DIC screen.
    Below is a copy/paste of a GM service document that may be applicable to your vehicle /the issue you're facing.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Service Information 2010 Cadillac CTS | CTS VIN D Service Manual

    #PIC5227A: Memory Seat Automatic Easy Exit Function Inoperative - (Oct 20, 2009)

    Subject: Memory seat Automatic Easy Exit Function Inoperative

    Models: 2009 - 2010 Cadillac CTS without power tilt and telescoping steering column
    2010 - Cadillac CTS Wagon without power tilt and telescoping steering column

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This PI was superseded to update models and model years. Please discard PIC5227.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.

    Condition/Concern:
    A customer may comment that their Memory Seat Automatic Easy Exit feature is inoperative

    Recommendation/Instructions:
    Due to a software change on a memory equipped vehicle (without power Tilt/Telescopic steering) if you select Easy Exit Setup Off there is no way to turn the Easy Exit Setup function back on. To default the "Easy Exit Setup All" to on status, you must go back into personalization and select Restore Factory Defaults.
