The drivers side seat moves forward once I open the door. Even though I have preset the memory to be the same on all three settings it still moves forward. I'm not sure if I hit set something by accident while getting out of the car or just age. Thanks
Did you just bought the car?
If it only happens after you disarm the car with your key remote,
It could be the key memory itself. The previous owner could have programmed his memory settings onto the key.
I think if that's the case, you need to get the dealer to reprogram it.
Then I'd guess you need a new memory module.
They tend to go screwy...mine's screwy with the steering settings but I manage to live with it coz' it's minor. I used to have the seats move when I disarm the car and open the door, but my mechanic removed the memory setting on the keyfob, set by the previous owner.
Really, disconnecting the battery worked? Maybe I need to do that to fix my memory setting's "amnesia". It seems to forget all my settings after a day or two, which irritates the crap out of me after my short fiance drives the car.
