Drivers Seat Ghost

Post by DVF2001 » Tue Feb 23, 2016 11:31 am

I think I may have a ghost in my 2004 XC70. Occasionally when I get in the car I find the drivers seat completely to the rear. I am the only driver and this sometimes happens overnight while the car is locked all night. When this happens I just push the memory button and the seat returns to normal. Thankfully this never happens while driving, only when parked but I have never witnessed it happening. I'm wondering if anyone else has had this experience.

Do you use the second key? Sounds like two keys are used with the car, and each has a seat position memory.

The following is from the Owners manual:

Remote keyless entry system and driver's seat

The remote control transmitter also controls the electrically operated driver's seat in the following way:
Adjust the seat to your preferences.
When you leave your car, lock it using the remote control.
The next time you unlock the driver's door with the same remote control(the one you used to lock the doors with) and open the driver's door, the driver's seat will automatically move to the position in which you left it.
The seat will move to this position even if someone else has adjusted it since you last unlocked the car with the same remote control.

NOTE:
This feature will work in the same way with all of the remote control transmitters (up to 3) that you use with your car.
This feature will not function if you lock your car with the key.
Les is more.

Thanks for the reply. I didn't realize that the key fob did that. I normally unlock the car with the key fob and then use the valet key to start the car because when I get to work, I park in a parking lot that has a valet park the car. When I leave at the end of the day, I use the key fob and the key on the fob. I will try just using the key fob and see if that solves the problem.
