The owner's manual should be your best friend.

 

Seat memory recall thru the D.I.C.

 

Yes, it can be turned off.

Some people don't have a manual.

 

And yeah...It's programmed to move to that position somewhere. Probably in the DIC, but it also may be slaved to which key FOB you're using.

Memory Seat, Mirrors, and Pedals

Your vehicle may have the memory package.

 

The controls for this feature are located on the driver's door panel, and are used to program and recall memory settings for the driver's seat, outside mirrors, and the adjustable throttle and brake pedal.

 

To save your positions in memory, do the following:

 

Adjust the driver's seat, including the seatback recliner and lumbar, both outside mirrors, and the throttle and brake pedals to a comfortable position.

See Outside Power Mirrors and Adjustable Throttle and Brake Pedal for more information.

 

Not all mirrors will have the ability to save and recall their positions.

 

Not all adjustable throttles and brake pedals will have the ability to save and recall their positions.

 

Press and hold button 1 until two beeps are heard indicating that the position has been stored.

A second seating, mirror, and throttle and brake pedal position can be programmed by repeating the above steps and pressing button 2.

 

To recall the memory positions, the vehicle must be in PARK (P). Press and release either button 1 or button 2 corresponding to the desired driving position. The seat, outside mirrors, and adjustable throttle and brake pedals will move to the position previously stored. You will hear a single beep.

 

If you use the remote keyless entry transmitter to enter your vehicle and the remote recall memory feature is on, automatic seat, adjustable mirror, and adjustable pedal movements will occur. See "MEMORY SEAT RECALL" under DIC Vehicle Customization for more information.

 

To stop recall movement of the memory function at any time, press one of the power seat controls, memory buttons, power mirror buttons, or adjustable pedal switch.

 

If something has blocked the driver’s seat and/or the adjustable pedals while recalling a memory position, the driver’s seat and/or the adjustable pedals recall may stop working. If this happens, remove the obstruction and press the appropriate control for the area that is not responding for two seconds. Try recalling the memory position again by pressing the appropriate memory button. If the memory position is still not recalling, see your dealer for service.

 

Easy Exit Seat

The control for this feature is located on the driver’s door panel between buttons 1 and 2.

 

With the vehicle in PARK (P), the driver's seat exit position can be recalled by pressing the exit button. You will hear a single beep, and the driver’s seat will move back.

 

If the easy exit seat feature is programmed in the Driver Information Center (DIC), automatic seat movement will occur when the key is removed from the ignition. See "EASY EXIT SEAT" under DIC Vehicle Customization for more information.

 

The memory seat and easy exit features can also be programmed using the DIC.

 

For programming information, see DIC Vehicle Customization .

EASY EXIT SEAT

If your vehicle has this feature, it allows you to select your preference for the automatic easy exit seat feature. See Memory Seat, Mirrors, and Pedals for more information.

 

Press the customization button until EASY EXIT SEAT appears on the DIC display. Press the set/reset button once to access the settings for this feature. Then press the customization button to scroll through the following settings:

 

OFF (default): No automatic seat exit recall will occur.

 

ON: The driver's seat will move back when the key is removed from the ignition. 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 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.

 

 

Choose one of the available settings and press the set/reset button while it is displayed on the DIC to select it.

 

MEMORY SEAT RECALL

If your vehicle has this feature, it allows you to select your preference for the remote memory seat recall feature. See Memory Seat, Mirrors, and Pedals for more information.

 

Press the customization button until MEMORY SEAT RECALL appears on the DIC display. Press the set/reset button once to access the settings for this feature. Then press the customization button to scroll through the following settings:

 

OFF (default): No remote memory seat recall will occur.

 

ON: The driver's seat and, on some vehicles, the outside mirrors will automatically move to the stored driving position when the unlock button on the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter is pressed. On some vehicles with the adjustable throttle and brake pedal feature, the pedals will also automatically move. See "Relearn Remote Key" under DIC Operation and Displays for more information on matching transmitters to driver ID numbers.

 

NO CHANGE: No change will be made to this feature. The current setting will remain.

 

 

Choose one of the available settings and press the set/reset button while it is displayed on the DIC to select it.

Good luck. Even after dealer reprogramming to fix something under warranty, my 2004 Tahoe frequently (once a month?) resets to some mode where yes, the seat goes all the way forward when you unlock the car and put the key in. This is opposite from the "easy exit" mode where the seat is supposed to go all the way back.

 

We quit using key number 2 LONG ago because the vehicle would often get confused (our main complaint to the dealer but the reprogramming really didn't fix much). Now, when I reprogram the settings for driver 1, I reprogram the setting for driver 2 at the same time. That seems to help keep the settings for driver 1 intact.

 

On a related note, the electric folding mirrors also never really worked right. The passenger side mirror wouldn't return to exactly the same position, which meant it would slowly drift away from the desired setting. I haven't used the retraction feature for about two years because of that.

Maybe it needs reprogrammed again,Heres a bulletin on it...........

Subject: Memory Seat May Not Return to Requested Position (Reprogram Driver Seat Module) #04-08-50-016C - (08/12/2005)

 

 

 

Models: 2003-2005 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Escalade EXT

 

2003-2005 Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe

 

2003-2005 GMC Sierra, Yukon, Yukon XL, Yukon Denali

 

All with Seat FRT, Individual (Non BKT) (RPO AN3)

 

2003-2005 HUMMER H2 with Seat, Front Bucket Deluxe (RPO AR9)

 

 

This bulletin is being revised to update the correction information. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 04-08-50-016B (Section 08 -- Body and Accessories).

 

Condition:

Some customers may comment that with repeated cycling of the memory seat between the 'exit' and one of the 'presets', the position of the seat may "creep" forward or rearward out of expected adjustment.

 

Cause:

There is a coding deficiency in the software for the memory seat module.

 

Correction:

Technicians are to reprogram the driver seat module with an updated software calibration. The previous bulletin stated to use a service calibration that was released with TIS satellite data update version 4.5. Feedback has proved that calibration to be ineffective in eliminating the memory seat creep condition. An updated service calibration was released with TIS satellite data update version 6.5 available June 13, 2005. This new calibration has additional memory seat creep protection. As always, make sure your Tech 2® is updated with the latest software version.

 

Important: After programming is complete, move the seat all the way rearward and down, then bump the seat slightly forward and up. This position will be just off the end of travel hard stops. Reset both memory seat exit positions at this position. Having the seat set at just off the hard stops will aid in reducing the creep condition.
