Electric seats - moving back when existing

3713 Views 18 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  tadslc
Guys, I there a way to limit how far the seat moves back upon existing or just turn off that feature off?
I feel that at times I am being moved too far back and at other times it just slows me down getting in and out.

I could not find this in the manual in the info-dash.

Thanks

Depends how far the seat is forward when exiting car, back pass a point it won't move further back. If your driving position causes that seat to move back there is nothing to do for it. Sorry
Thank you.
Yes, it depends on how far or close you set your seating position. I love the feature as it makes exiting easier for us with replaced joints.

Use the remote start before getting in... that way you don't have to hit the brake to turn it on ;)
Once you set up your seat on one of the memory buttons - the seat stops going back when you turn the car off. In fact - I set up the second button so that I CAN move back now.

Once back in the car, if you hit the Start button without touching the brake pedal, the seat moves forward again.

That doesn't seem to be the case for me. I have set all 3 buttons and the seat still moves back. At least when I open the door.

Also, it seems that my passenger seat is broken. It's makes a horrible noise when elevating the seat and doesn't move very much. Sounds like the gears aren't meshed properly and about to strip.

Same for me, still moves....
Like I said if the seat is ahead of a certain position(you can play around to find it) the seat will move back. Behind that position it won't.
Great design, poor execution. Wish there was an off button. Should be an easy software fix...

Perhaps the Top Gear episode when Jeremy pretends he couldn't get out of the Q spooked Alfa?

I was hoping a software update would add that. That in the ONLY thing I find annoying.
Well and the side rear view mirror create a blind spot for me. Other than that I am good.

Agreed, I also find the side rear view mirror creates a major blind spot.

The mirror creates a blind spot (blocks forward view) or the mirror has a blind spot (inadequate rearward view)?

Your driving position (both up-down and fore-aft) will affect both.
please consult AAA for proper driving position.

Rearward vision is fine, driving position is fine. The mirror is so big it blocks a lot of my view like trying to see the curb out the drivers window just rearward of the A-pillar.
