Programming the memory


Three seat positions can be programmed. To program a seat position:

1 Adjust the seat to the desired position.

2 Hold down the MEM button.

3 While holding down the MEM button, press button 1 to program the current position of the seat.

Buttons 2 and 3 can be programmed in the same way.

To move the seat to a programmed position, press and hold down button 1, 2 or 3 until the seat moves to the preset position and stops.

As a safety precaution, the seat will stop automatically if the button is released before the seat has reached the programmed position.

NOTE: The seat has an overload protector which engages if an object blocks the movement of the seat. If this happens, remove the object and wait 20 seconds before operating the seat again.

* Only the driver's seat is equipped with the memory function.

Electrically operated seats - general information

Adjusting the front seats:

Passengers's seat: The passenger's seat can only be adjusted if the ignition key is in position I or II (see page 48).

Driver's seat: The driver's seat can be adjusted if the ignition key is in position I or II (see page 48). However, it can also be adjusted:
· Within 40 seconds after the ignition has been switched off (even if the key has been removed from the ignition switch).
· Within 40 seconds after the driver's door has been unlocked with the key or remote control and opened. The key does not have to be in the ignition switch during this period.

Remote keyless entry system and driver's seat

The remote control transmitter also controls the electrically operated driver's seat in the following way:

  • Adjust the seat to your preferences.
  • When you leave your car, lock it using the remote control
  • The next time you unlock the driver's door with the same remote control (the one you used to lock the doors with) and open the driver's door, the driver's seat will automatically move to the position in which you left it.
    The seat will move to this position even if someone else has adjusted them since you last drove the car.

    NOTE:

  • This feature will work in the same way with all of the remote control transmitters (up to 3) that you use with your car.
  • This feature will not function if you lock your car with the key.

    pg. 54 Folding rear seat backrests, Carrying long loads




    Backrest controls (on opposite sides of trunk)

    Folding rear seat backrest The rear seat backrest is split into two sections. Each section can be folded independently to allow you to transport long objects.

    To fold down the backrest(s):
    · Pull the release control handle(s) in the trunk to release the backrest(s) (see illustration above). If the outboard rear head restraints are folded down, they should be returned to the upright position before folding the backrest down. It may be necessary to manually adjust the center head restraint.
    · Fold the backrest down.

    WARNING!
    All S80 cars feature 60/40 split fold-down rear seats. This function is performed by handles inside the trunk, and also provides a means for children and adults to enter the passenger compartment in the event they become locked inside the trunk. Adults are advised to familiarize them-selves with the operation and location of the release handles. To fold down the rear seats from inside the trunk, pull the release control handles located on either side of the trunk.

    WARNING!

    · Keep vehicle doors and the luggage compartment locked and keep keys out of a child's reach. Unsupervised children could lock themselves in an open trunk and risk injury. Children should be taught not to play in vehicles.
    · On hot days, the temperature in the trunk or vehicle interior can rise very quickly. Exposure of people to these high temperatures for even a short period of time can cause heat-related injury or death. Small children are particularly at risk.


    WARNING!

    · When the backrest is returned to the upright position, check that it is properly locked in place. Return the head restraints to the upright position.
    · Long loads should always be securely anchored to help avoid injury in the event of a sudden stop.
    · Always turn the engine off and apply the parking brake when loading/unloading the vehicle.
    · Place the transmission in the P (PARK) position to help prevent inadvertent movement of the gear selector.
