E61 Steering Wheel Memory Phenomena

Hello, Iím new to the forum and had a question about the steering wheel memory settings. Iím pretty tall and have to set my wheel telescoped closest to me and would like to bring it up as wellÖ

Interestingly the wheel will only go up if I toggle the adjuster stalk twice (once+release, second+hold) for it to go up at all. That wouldnít bother me that much except every time I turn the car off and remove the key, the wheel goes back down to its low starting position but remains telescoped out.

Iíve tried with no success:
∑ changing the key settings in iDrive related to seat memory

∑ trying variations of memory setting positions with the seat/wheel


Any help is greatly appreciated!!!

Here is a video depicting the issue:

Every once in a while, my steering wheel doesn't go all the way up when I turn off the ignition. I don't remember if I found it on this forum or not, but I remember reading somewhere about a "reset" procedure. Move the wheel all the way up, all the way down, all the way in, then all the way out. I know my issue isn't the same as yours, but this procedure seems to at least temporarily work for me. You might want to try if no one else has any better suggestions.

That was it Polecat, thanks!!!

To fix:

Adj to full up
Attempt to adj up again and (will likely go up further)
Adj up and hold 10sec

Adj to full down
Attempt to adj down again and (will likely go down further)
Adj down and hold 10sec

Done + happy
