Seat memory & key fobs?

We bought a 14 GC Limited about a month ago. It's my wife's car and she drives it 98% of the time. I've programmed the seats & mirrors into memory position 1 & 2. I wonder if there is a way to get the seats to move to the stored position if I unlock or if use the near field function to open the door. The way it works now is that I have to open the door and then press the #1 or #2 memory position. I'm a big guy and my wife is a small gal. A small nit, I know, but it take a few moments for the seat to adjust. I'd like to save those small few moments and have it begin to adjust if I use my fob.

Any pointers appreciated.

Yeah, there's a procedure in the user manual to link a key fob to a specific memory position.

To program your RKE transmitters, perform the following:


1. Remove the Key Fob from the ignition (or change the


ignition to OFF, for vehicles equipped with Keyless


Enter-N-Go).


2. Select desired memory profile (1) or (2).

refer to Programming The Memory Feature for instructions








on how to set a memory profile.

3. Once the profile has been recalled, press and release

NOTE: Your RKE transmitters can be unlinked to your








memory settings by following steps 1-4 above and pressing


the UNLOCK button (instead of LOCK) on the RKE


transmitter in Step 4.

The problem is you have to use unlock on your FOB and not the keyless entry for this to work.

Are you sure? That's not the case on our 2012.

Definitely not the case with my 2014 Limited. With the fob in my pocket, I unlock the door by touching the door handle and the memory setting ballet begins.

Now here's a question though, once you've got this setup. Say you're out for a drive and you make a few adjustments to your seat etc., then simply turn the truck off and hop out. While you're gone the wife goes for a drive with her FOB. Next time you come back with your FOB, does the seat go back to the position you last left it, or the position last explicitly stored in the Memory position associated with your FOB?


Basically when I make minor adjustments to my seat etc., will I need to explicitly re-store memory position 1 before getting out?

I'm pretty sure that I've made minor adjustments while going down the road and just hit "S" followed by "1" to store them in my profile. No need to hit "Lock" on the RKE again. The "Lock" on the RKE is what pairs an individual fob with a given profile setting in the memory. Once it's paired, I think as long as you remember to store ("S") the new settings in the car, they'll be remembered when you next get in the car.

One of the things that surprised me about my '11 Overland is that I *can* store setting changes while in motion. In my Magnum it gives an error message that the settings aren't available, unless you're at a stand still and in Park or Neutral. I always thought that was dumb.

But yes, you do need to specifically store minor adjustments.

Oh, and to that end, IF the memory system burps and leaves your wife's Sirius stations disolayed you can press the appropriate number on the door to change to your settings (if you're stopped, in Park), BUT be careful not to accidentally hit the S button first, or you may be manually reprogramming all your stations....ask how I know lol.

Actually - I have found that slight adjustments do require me to store in memory AND store to fob again. My wife found the same thing...

Defiantly not the case with my 2014 Summit, I have the FOB in the pocket and use keyless and nothing. If I push the button it works correctly.

Pushing the unlock button on the key fob works, but keyless entry does not? That's really strange...
