    The power driver's seat can be adjusted:

  • If the ignition key is in position I or II.
  • During a 10 minute period after the doors have been unlocked if the door remains open.
  • If the door is closed and the ignition key is not yet in the ignition, or if the key is in position 0, the seat can be adjusted or during a period of 40 seconds. The power passenger's seat can only be adjusted if the ignition key is in position I or II, or if the engine is running.

    Adjusting the seat
    Seat adjustment controls 1, 2, 3, and 4 on the side of the seat can be used to move the seat to the position of your choice.
