How do you make your seat go back automatically upon exit?

I followed the instructions in the manual but could not get it to work. If I remember right you are supposed to hold down the set button on the driver side door for the seat memory and then hold the seat backwards button at the same time but mine does not work. Any help guys?

Hit the menu button on the steering wheel (upper compass) and scroll until you get to the seat exit screen and click the left arrow button to on, I just figured this out this morning among many other settings including turning off the horn when locking, rain sensor, lights on with the wipers, auto lock, headlight delay, etc.etc. Why don't ALL cars have personal settings like this.

You'll have to reprogram trhe EVIC to permit the seat to move back. Somehow, it probably got changed. Another possibility is that the seat is too far back so that it can't move. There is a position in the backward state whereby it will not move backward farther.

the seat didn't move back and steering didn't move up when you turned the key to the off position? Try the menu option again, maybe it didn't get selected.

I looked at page 95 about the seat glide but I think thats for cars without evic. Try page 158. I did mine through the menu, put key on acc. turned it on with the > arrow on steering wheel ,pulled key out and viola!

My seat goes rearward on exit but my steering wheel remains in the same position. Are you sure yours retracts at the same time as the seat moves rearward?

Mine works only sporadically. I think if you keep your seat less than 2" to extreme back position to begin with it does not retract when you take out the key. If you change your seat setting manually during driving it will stay in that position and not move back. That's just my unscientific research.
MY steering wheel column adjutment ALWAYS works, however.

NCG, I took my 300C in the other day for the same problem. It needed a new seat module. I got the car back today and guess what. The seat wont go back on its own and neither will the steering column! I went through the manual to see if I was freakin out and doing something wrong. It appears that I am doing the right things, I dont get it. I love the new cars from Chrysler, but I still hate their dealerships.

Like anything electronic, stuff happens. But the problem may be as simple as the glide and steering controls not enabled in the EVIC.

Suggest first check the EVIC, Personal Settings and be certain they are enabled. Another reason the glide won't work is that the seat is adjusted too far back. Also, be sure that the settings for the seat, once enabled, must be saved on the appropriate setting switch on the driver's door. Your owner's manual is quite clear on how to do this. But be sure to follow the directions on the yellow addendum for memory controls.

It certainly appears as if your dealer should have reset things properly since apparently that is the reason for the work you had done. Remember, the customer controls their continuance of the 5* rating. Don't be afraid to speak up via the Regional Rep and/or DC itself. They DO listen to valid customer complaints. On the other hand, also be sure where the problem is -- you or them. :^))

I have this problem as well.
As I said, stuff happens to electronics, but suggest you follow what was suggested in the earlier post. Most of the time that covers the problem.

Usually someone forgets to reset the seat, etc., memory.

Miles,
It's them, I went back to the dealer and had about 5 service guys there trying to figure it out, with 3 owners manuals being passed around all of us! They couldn't figure it out so I'm taking it back in after they fix one of the other cars on the lot that has the same problem. They are going to use that as a guinea pig, then call me when they figured it out. I have to say, this dealer I think will be my new favorite spot. They treated me great when I went back in. They were more than polite and helpful, sometimes you just have to be understanding that they can only do what they know to do, and on a new model we all have to work together to figure these things out! :)
