    Memory seat reprogram

    I received the reprogram of the memory seat function last week on my XTS and was not expecting the results. After a search of the update #12262 I found that it was due to user complaints about the automatic adjustment of the seat, steering wheel, and side mirrors. This was a feature that I personally enjoyed but now I have to press the memory button on the door panel to accomplish the full set of adjustments as it was when built. If other owners were not happy with that feature, they could have just disabled it in the settings menu. Cadillac could have surveyed a broader user base to receive feedback before moving ahead with the reprogramming. Hopefully Cadillac will rethink this feature and reinstate the functionality for those of us that want it back.

    Re: Memory seat reprogram

    You have to reprogram all your settings. I had to and everything works the way it did before the update. The only difference was that the remote I was using was #1 before the update and turned into #2 after. Try it and get back with us.

    I attempted to reset the memory seat function with both key fobs 3 times with each. I have the settings in CUE set to activate the memory seats with ignition on. The seat will move to the desired position but the steering wheel does not move and the drivers side mirror goes fully down and the passenger mirror goes straight up. The steering wheel and mirrors will adjust to the desired position once I press the memory seat button on the drivers door. This was not the case prior to update 12262. I prefer the original operation. The web site (http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums.../t-281892.html) has stated this is the desired performance after the update.

    Re: Memory seat reprogram

    I agree with the program seat update. I loved the function before where my seat programmed for exit and then on ignition start up. I am VERY disappointed that the seat memory only works on exit. It is very inconvenient to have to press the button each time to get my seat to desired position. Hope cadillac makes some adjustments to this!

    Re: Memory seat reprogram

    Do you have to do the memory seat update? I just bought my car today. Pick it up tomorrow.

    Why was their an update? Already my wife complained about the seat not going back when the car is shut off. In the Genesis, when you hit the start button without your foot on the brake pedal, the seat, wheel, etc goes to the memory 1 settings.

    Re: Memory seat reprogram

    I had exactly the same problem with the fob number switch after the update. Maybe that's why there is no number on the fobs. After resetting with the correct fob everything worked as before.

    Re: Memory seat reprogram

    That switching of the fobs had me very frustrated when I got home. After several resets I said to my myself: Self, maybe they switched the fob numbers on you. Sure enough that was the problem. All you members out there having a problem, do like Ernie and me save yourself a lot of grief and change to the other fob.

    Re: Memory seat reprogram

    I picked up a new 2014 XTS yesterday and am having trouble with the seat memory

    1. First of all, the manual says to “press and hold BOTH set and #1 at the same time” that obviously is wrong. If I press and release set and then press 1 I get one beep
    2. BUT there seems to be some OVERRIDING SETTING . is there a way to delete all seat memory settings and start over???
    3. The driving seat memory seems to work BUT DOESN’T auto go there when I start the car???
    4. I programmed the “exit” memory but it doesn’t go where I set it. INSTEAD it goes to some crazy setting with the seat way back AND TITLED FORWARD
    a. Yes, I have “easy exit” set to “on” on the panel
    b. And I’ve tried both keys. Same problem

    ----------

    so how does someone "reach out to you" without your email
    maybe this posting will work?

    Re: Memory seat reprogram

    I just went out and programmed my other fob. I started the car and hit the lock symbol on the fob. I then set my steering and seat positions to my liking. I press "set" on the door panel and the driver number and that's it. I don't press both buttons at the same time as you described. That's it. I still think one of the problems is that you don't know which fob is being programmed. #1 or #2. They used to note the number on the fobs. I'm surprised the salesperson didn't help you with this when you picked up the car. Mine did. I ran into the problem after the memory seat update that was performed which for some reason switched the fob numbers.

    One thing I should have mentioned. Go into Settings, Vehicle, Comfort and convenience, Auto Recall. At that point make sure "On AT Ignition" is checked. That will activate your settings when you start the car. Sorry I forgot to mention that.

    Re: Memory seat reprogram

    Because "on at ignition" is not checked. You selected "driver door open".
