    Key Fob - Seat Memory 'Link'?

    I have a 2013 SRX. Does a specific key fob have a(ny) association with one of the seat memory choices (1 or 2)? If there is, how does one tell which key fob is associated with which seat memory? (my fobs do not have a digit on them as I have had in other vehicles)

    -tnx,

    Jeff

    no. seat memory (buttons on the side of the seat) are different that remotes. The remotes just go back to whatever position seats were in when that remote left the car. so, you basically have 4 seat positions; 2 buttons and 2 remotes.

    Ahhh...understood. So I just set the seat(s) and as long as I use the same fob I'm good.

    These cars are different when it comes to the memory settings. As Huey Driver said, the car will remember all of the various settings for that particular remote when the car is shut off. It will do that for each remote and is totally independent of the memory buttons on the seat. You actually have 4 different memory settings, 2 for the buttons located on the seat and one each for each remote.

    How can I get my wife's key fob to remember her settings and my key fob to remember mine. Now, no matter
    Which key fob I use it will always go to memory 1.

    Re: Key Fob - Seat Memory 'Link'?

    There is no correlation with the FOBs and the Memory 1 and 2 on the seat. They are totally independent. To set your FOB, get in the car, set the seat positions then exit the car with the FOB making sure to close the door. Do the same for the other FOB. The Memory 1 and 2 can be set by positioning the seat and holding down the Mem button and pressing 1 or 2 at the same time. You will hear a chime indicating it's set.

    What I do is Set Memory 1 then exit the car with my FOB. That has Memory 1 and the FOB at the same settings.

    Does the automatic memory recall on cue personalization menu be "on when driver door open" or off.

    Thanks

    Re: Key Fob - Seat Memory 'Link'?

    I know this is a rather old thread but my question sort-of dovetails with this.

    We have a 2014 Cadillac SRX Luxury. I lost the remote part to one of my keys (not a great design…button pushes in too easy and it’s gone ). I purchased a new remote and programmed it to my vehicle and the SRX recognized it as Remote #3. This remote replaces remote #2 which used to move my seat to the presets defined and stored as #2. My question is how can I tell the car to use seating presets #2 when remote #3 is used? Or, is there a way for me to tell the car that this new remote is #2?

    That is the way the early 2013 SRX's were delivered, but in January 2013, Cadillac downgraded the memory function and eliminated the auto update associated with each FOB. The memory updates are now manual only by updating the buttons. The buttons associate with each FOB, but are not marked. It is left up to the owner to discover the association between buttons and FOB.

    This change was a disservice to customers who liked the auto updates. The auto programming worked well when the owner understood the concept, but I suppose dealers had a difficult time explaining the functionality to customers, so they removed the automatic functionality without forewarning the customer.

    THIS WAS A BAD MOVE BY CADILLAC. THEY SHOULD HAVE WARNED CUSTOMERS WHAT WAS ABOUT TO HAPPEN. I ASKED MY DEALER TO BACK OUT THE UPDATE, BUT THEY SAID THEY COULD NOT.
