Automatic Seat position??

So I've had my AH3 for almost a month now and while I love it, I do have one issue: I can't figure out how to get my seat to automatically adjust back to the memory position when I return to the car. I have comfort access if that matters. When I hit the "1" button on the seat memory the seat goes back to the set position, but if it's moved before I unlock it, it doesn't automatically return to my set position. I just need help from someone smarter than me! Any advice? Thanks!!

What # is your key?

You can set the seat position in the Idrive / Driver Profile.

But - the car is designed so that it only sets the key to that position if you've switched drivers. If you move the seat, get out, then get back in - the seat will stay in the same position. Not sure if that's the issue you're referring to. Not so much an issue IMO - I hated the fact that my Acura would auto adjust every time you unlocked it. Every time I would take people out to lunch and adjust the seat, it would automatically move back and crush their legs when we'd get back in.

HAHA, just thought it was so funny that I also moved from my old TL that did this same thing. Since I'm tall I would always move the seat up to let people sit behind me and after lunch, bam back goes the seat.

You need to make sure the settings are correct. Make sure that under "door locks", the first box is checked. It should be something like "Last Seat Position automatic" i think. But that will adjust the seat based on the key used to unlock the car.

Are all seat positions storable? What I am trying to say, is there any manual ones?

The memory won't store the lumbar support or the flanks on the sport seats. Those are always manual.
