HOW TO USE MEMORY SEATS

Difficulty Level: Novice  |  Time Required: 5 Minutes  |  Tools Required: None  |  Related Parts, Products, Services or Technology: Up to two drivers can set memory settings using the seat memory buttons — the settings are matched with each of the vehicle’s key fobs. The Driver Information Center (DIC) will show which driver number the key fob is associated with when the vehicle is started.
 

Note: After you’ve used the same key fob when starting and turning off the vehicle multiple times, the system will stop showing you the message.  

Make sure to keep the other key fob outside of the vehicle while setting preferences. 

Memory seats, if equipped, let you set and recall your preferred seat position. You may be able to set other features, too, such as outside mirrors or steering column. Here’s how to store and recall your settings. 


To Set Memory Seat Positions 

With the key fob in the vehicle, ignition ON or in ACCESSORY mode, and the vehicle in PARK

  1. The Driver Information Center will show whether the vehicle detects key fob 1 or 2.2. 
  2. Adjust the driver seat, outside mirrors and tilt/telescoping steering column to the desired positions. (Check your vehicle information to see which memory features are included.) 
  3. Press and release the SET button. A beep will sound.
  4. Immediately after you release the SET button, press and hold memory button 1 or 2 depending on the fob number you saw in the DIC. You will hear two beeps to confirm the seat position was set.

Repeat these steps for a second driver using the other key fob. 

Once set, the seats and other memory features will move to their stored settings when: 

  1. The corresponding memory button is pushed. 

    OR
  2. The ignition is turned ON. (The seats and other features will move to the settings matched to the key fob in use). Note: Auto Memory Recall must be enabled (see below).  

To Set an Exit Position 

You can set your memory features to provide more clearance when exiting the vehicle.  

  1. Adjust your seat, steering column and mirrors to positions that allow for comfortable clearance. 
  2. Press and release the SET button. A beep will sound. 
  3. Immediately press and hold the EXIT button until you hear two beeps. 
  4. Seat exit positions are associated with the vehicle and not a particular key fob, so they will be the same for both drivers.

Once set, your memory features will move to the Exit position when your ignition is turned OFF and you open the driver’s door. Note: Easy Exit must be enabled (see below).  

Enabling Auto Memory Recall and Easy Exit 

On your vehicle’s infotainment display, go to Settings > Vehicle > Seating Position. 

  1. Enable Seat Entry Memory. 
  2. Enable Seat Easy Exit.

Q&As

WHEN SHOULD I HAVE MY TIRES ROTATED?

As part of a newly revised maintenance schedule, owners of 2011 model year or newer GM vehicles are advised to see their dealer for a tire rotation every 7,500 miles.

HOW DO I PROPERLY STORE TIRES?

Tires age when the vehicle remains parked for extended periods of time. If a vehicle will be stored for a month or more, park it in a cool, dry and clean area away from direct sunlight to slow the aging process. The area should be free of grease, gasoline or other substances that can deteriorate rubber. This also applies to unmounted tires.

Parking for an extended period can also cause flat spots that may result in vibrations while driving. When storing a vehicle for more than a month, remove the tires or raise the vehicle to reduce the weight from the tires.

DO I NEED A WHEEL ALIGNMENT?

Proper wheel alignment is key to the life of your tires. If your vehicle is misaligned, it can cause your tires to wear unevenly, and you may experience handling problems such as pulling or abnormal vibration.

Tires and wheels are aligned and balanced at the factory to help provide best overall performance. Adjustments to wheel alignment and tire balancing are not necessary on a regular basis. Consider a wheel alignment check if there is unusual tire wear or if your GMC vehicle is significantly pulling to one side or the other.

A tire that is out of balance often affects ride quality and can shorten the life of tires, bearings, shocks and other suspension components. If the vehicle is vibrating when driving on a smooth road, the tires and wheels may need to be rebalanced.
