Driving position memory

Your preferred driving position (the position of the driver's seat, steering
wheel and outside rear view mirrors) can be memorized and recalled with the touch of a button. It is also possible to set this function to activate automatically
when the doors are unlocked.

Linking driving position memory with door unlock operation

Record your driving position to button 1, 2 or 3 before performing the following:

The driving position is recalled when the driver's door is unlocked using the entry function or wireless remote control and the driver's door is opened.

Operating the driving position memory after turning the POWER switch off

Memorized positions (except for the steering wheel position) can be activated up
to 180 seconds after the drivers door is opened and another 60 seconds after it is
closed again, even after turning the POWER switch off.

Canceling the linked door unlock operation

1. Turn the POWER switch to ON mode and close the driver's door.

2. While pressing the SET button, press the drivers door lock switches (either lock or unlock) until the signal beeps.

Perform any of the following operations: Press the SET button.

Press button 1, 2 or 3.

Adjust the seat using the switches (only cancels seat position recall).

Adjust the steering wheel using the tilt and telescopic steering control switch
(only cancels steering wheel position recall).

Correct seat position

When the seat is in the most forward or most backward position, and the seat is
being moved in those directions, the system may not correctly recognize the current
position and the memorized position will not be correctly recalled.

When the power easy access system is activated

If a seat position is memorized, the driver seat will move back the set distance
from that memorized position.

CAUTION:
Seat adjustment caution
Take care during seat adjustment so that the seat does not strike the rear passenger
or squeeze your body against the steering wheel.
