Adjust the power seat(s) with the two controls at the side of the seat as follows:

Automatic seat adjustment

To move the seat to the position in which you left it:

1. Unlock the driver's door with the same remote key (the one used to lock the doors)
2. Open the driver's door within 2 minutes.

The driver's seat will automatically move to the position in which you left it.

Х The seat will move to this position even if someone else has moved it to a different seating position and locked the vehicle with a different remote key.
Х This feature will work in the same way with all of the remote key transmitters (up to 3) that you use with your vehicle.
Х This feature will not function if you lock your vehicle with the key.

Х Because the driver's seat can be adjusted with the ignition off, children should never be left unattended in the vehicle.
Х Movement of the seat can be STOPPED at any time by pressing any button on the power seat control panel.
Х Do not adjust the seat while driving.
Х The seat should be adjusted so that the brake pedal can be depressed fully. In addition, position the seat as far rearward as comfort and control allow.
Х The seat rails on the floor must not be obstructed in any way when the seat is in motion.

Programming the memory

Programming the memory

Three different seating and door mirror positions can be stored in the driver seat's memory.

The following example explains how button 1 can be programmed. Buttons 2 and 3 can be programmed in the same way.

To program (store) a seat position in button 1:

1. Move the seat to the desired position using the seat adjustment controls.
2. Press and hold down the MEM (memory) button
3. With the MEM button depressed, press button 1 briefly to store the seat's current position.

To move the seat to the position that it was in when button 1 was programmed:

Press and hold down button 1 until the seat stops moving.

As a safety precaution, the seat will stop automatically if the button is released before the seat has reached the preset position.
