: Memory seats not working right

07-08-2012, 06:31 PM
I have the memory keys, sometimes they work sometimes they don't. I live in a house with a few roommates, sometimes I'll let someone use my car if they have a hot date or I just don't feel like moving it. They'll move my seats and when I hit either 1 or 2 on the seat it just bumps it. Anyway I can make these work or reset them so they'll work?

I've found that opening the door and punching the button I have programmed to my preference before closing the door works for me.

If someone fumbles with the buttons on the side of the seat trying to adjust it is way too easy to reset memory 1 or 2 to a new setting.

Yeah, but when someone has been messing with the seat and I hit the button, the seat one moves maybe an inch. I held it down to see if thats maybe what I had to and it slid the seat all the way forward, then up and reclined it all the way back.

We just bought 07 530XI and the different key fobs remember different settings. Used my wife's key yesterday and none of my settings were there. Used my key and they were all back.

I figured it out. I realized that the car has to be off to put the settings back to what they were.

I guess I should have made that clear in my first response. An edit of what I said before: I push the programmed button before closing the door, and before pushing the start button.
