Long story short, when I got back into my car after work, the seat didn't move back to my setting, and the side-view-mirrors were way off.

Short story long, when I got to work earlier in the day, I alarm went off. It turned off after a couple of minutes. Later in the day a couple of friends got in and tried out the seats, and later on when I got back in, the seat wouldn't go back to where I had set it and the mirrors were way off.

Not sure what's going on, does anyone have any idea what might have made this happen?

Cheers

OT but this is a peeve of mine whenever I take a car to the shop. I'm exactly average height. Unless the mechanic is 6'7" or 4'2" and planning to drive cross country leave my seat settings alone. :mad:
This bugs me too. I once had my tires rotated and the installer moved both my seat and mirrors when he moved it to the bay - which was only 20 feet away! What they did not know was the controller was broken and I couldn't easily restore the settings. They said it was a "rule" and they had to. I call baloney.

The good news is... unless the seat button memory has been lost or changed... you can press the start button and then the seat button before getting into the car.

My wife is 4-2 and has the seat all the way up and all the way forward. There is no way I can even get into the car without first moving the seat back.

I like that the seat retreats when the driver wants to exit, however, i'm not sure if i like it happening after i go to open the door; i think it should happen when you press the start/stop button to stop the car.

On the topic of seat movement, anyone else notice that the seat doesn't go exactly back to the memory position when you get in? I felt that the seat was a little further back than it should be, so I pressed the memory button, and the seat moved forward. Only moved a small amount, maybe a centimeter, but still...

I tested on mine, it goes back exactly to the position of the preset. If I then push the preset button, nada.

Ive been having this wierd issue! Dont know if i should take it to the dealer or not...

Basically every time i adjust my mirrors and seat and store it into memory, the setting for the seat is remembered, the passenger side mirror is remembered, but the driver side mirror is not! It somehow is reverting to a "standard" position every time i press the memory button, and that position is not one that i set and points up to the sky LOL. Tried to set all 3 memory buttons and the driver mirror doesnt seem to be remembered.

Any ideas?? TIA

I keep comng to to thought that, while a few of us really have repairable issues, maybe what the rest are experiencing is a lack of knowing the right way to operate features. Whether it is the seat retracting or the defogging, perhaps we just are not thinking the way the designers/engineers were thinking?? (Except of course the ACP/AA issue lol)

I'd suggest a trip to your dealer. Clearly something is amiss.

Clearly this is some of the issue. But I think between the collective brain-power on this forum, most of the issues are actual issues. I'd take this forum over FCA and its "quality control" or "design thought" any day.
