Chevrolet Equinox Owners Manual: Memory Seats

Memory Seats

If equipped, memory seats allow two drivers to store and recall their unique seat positions for driving the vehicle, and a shared exit position for getting out of the vehicle. Other feature positions may also be set, such as power mirrors and power steering wheel, if equipped. Memory positions are linked to RKE transmitter 1 or 2 for automatic memory recalls.

Before storing, adjust all available memory feature positions. Turn the ignition on and then press and release SET; a beep will sound.

Then immediately press and hold 1, 2, or(Exit) on the driver door until two beeps sound. To manually recall these positions, press and hold 1, 2, oruntil the saved position is reached.

The vehicle identifies the current driver's RKE transmitter number (1-8). See Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) System Operation. Only RKE transmitters 1 and 2 can be used for automatic memory recalls.

A Driver Information Center (DIC) welcome message indicating the transmitter number may display for the first few ignition cycles following a transmitter change. For Auto Memory Recall to work properly, save the positions to the memory button (1 or 2) matching the RKE transmitter number displayed in the DIC welcome message. Carry the linked RKE transmitter when entering the vehicle.
