WOW EVAN! YOU ROCK!!! Thank you so very, very much for taking the time to provide such a humongous full and detailed set of instructions (even with photos) on how to do this. This is so much appreciated. I also hope that what you have been so very kind to share with me helps many others out there that have this same problems.

Thanks a MILLION!!! I can’t thank you enough.

Nick

All in a days work mano! I was bored anyway haha figured I'd do a bit of a mini write-up hope it works out for ya! Oh yeah, adjust your mirrors BEFORE you unplug the connector. Or just adjust them by hand once you've unplugged it. Otherwise, you're stuck with mirrors that are at all sorts of weird angles

Hey, what are forums for anyway?

his seat will still randomly adjust even if the mirrors are disconnected, easiest way to stop both from happening is to just unplug the memory button connector, everything will still work but it will no longer try to adjust the seats/mirrors to a preset location and you can do the whole job in about 5 min, you dont even have to disconnect any door wiring, just reach behind the panel and unplug the memory button

The front drivers side door panel. Loosen or remove the panel and unplug this switch:

MyKeyB,
thank you for providing more information on this fix. I still have not got around to working on this project, since I have been very busy working as of late, however I’m going to get my brother to help me to remove the door panel (when I have some free time), since my brother is very mechanically inclined and I’m not. Yet I was just wondering, if I unplug the switch (as shown in you photo), will I still have power to use the power buttons to adjust my side mirrors and seat? As I’m only “guessing” that by unplugging that switch, it just stops the automatic memory adjustments AND does not cut the power to use the electric adjustment buttons for the mirrors and seats?

Nick

Yep. The seats and mirrors will still work. Only thing you lose is the memory function.

Success?

I wanted to know if it worked for you? I would also like to know if that kills the electric adjustment to the mirrors. Meaning do I have to adjust them manually if my wife drive the jeep? Thanks.

Now I see the things I missed, great thread, really helped me a lot!!!

If you haven't already answered your own qhestion, then yes, it worked like a charm! I was worried about it killing the electric adjustments too, but no, they still work. I just don't get the annoying ghost-adjustments that happened every time I unlocked the vehicle haha
