Hi everyone, I'm a first time Jag owner, (long time coming) and I've had it 5 days now. When I first got it, the drivers seat and steering wheel moved backward and forwards when the key was put in and removed. I liked that, helped get in and out. I set the memory for my seat and saved it. Since then, they don't retract when the key is removed. What have I done wrong? All help is gratefully received.

There is a switch on the left side of the steering column make sure that is set to auto as that sets the drivers seat right back and down low when the key is removed. I inadvertently moved mine to column and found the seat did not move when the key was removed. It also moves the wheel up and in towards the dash if you have set it in a different position.

Thanks for the reply Dave. I have actually looked at that and found how that works. Nice touch. Saw it on youtube. My seat still doesn't move though. Almost wish I'd not adjusted it now. Wasn't that far off in the first place. Must be something simple I'm missing. I'll keep trying .

Chris,

Sometimes, it helps, once you are in position, with the door closed, to press the memory number button which is NOT your seat position and then press the button which IS your button. The seat moving slightly away and back seems to jog the memory and then the seat, column, and pedals should then auto retract when you remove the ignition key.

Doesn't always work but does on my car 90% of the time.

Hi Ryan, thanks for that. Have you used these people or is it just word of mouth? Somebody else had mentioned Elite and Performance on Stores Rd. I think C.I.B. look more likely. Anyway, its my first Jag so I hope S Types are ok. I've had a couple of Mercs previous. A C class then an E class. Both ok. The Jag is nicer to drive, by some way. My E 270 was a bit agricultural compared to this V6 diesel. What do you drive?
