Re: AAOS 3.1.9

Mine updated without any problems in 20 minutes last evening. I haven't driven anywhere since, though... The release notes are somewhat underwhelming!

Re: Driver's seat moving back automatically

If you give the memory button 1 or 2 a short press with the door OPEN it does the complete seat and mirror adjustment. Maybe you are touching the button when exiting the car? Interesting... I'll give that a try. It's possible I've accidentally caught the button as I've pushed the door open. Thanks ...

Re: Driver's seat moving back automatically

I have two keys, but only ever use one of them (my wife doesn't drive - "Why keep a dog and bark yourself! :D "). In order to have the seat adjust its position, I have to press and hold the relevant memory button until the seat has arrived at its programmed position. I can't just give the ...

Re: Driver's seat moving back automatically

If you have power seats ( You do! ) then the seat settings are retained by the key fob. Newer cars seem to have 2 memories while the older ones had 3. I've had 2 Volvo cars that did this, but......... I never really could make it work for me 🤪. If you have the seat controls fitted you should have b...

Driver's seat moving back automatically

On three occasions over the last week, when I switched off the engine and opened the door, the driver's seat moved back to the rear stops (but didn't lower itself). It's never done this before. I can't get it to repeat this on demand. I believe you can specify similar functionality on some models in...

Re: New software update 3.0.3

Someone posted on another thread that they'd tried to get it done but as he'd got the latest over the air version they wouldn't do it. I guess most of us got this flawed update so are having to wait for the next OTA one. Talking of flaws mine's starting doing a few odd things. Did a journey of abou...

Re: Opening Tailgate With Foot Movement

They told me the sensor is placed just below the parking sensor, the one to the left of the licence plate. Waving the foot doesn't help, but a short kick does it every time. And yes, it helps if you are having your car keys with you. Can't tell how many times my wife tried to open it with a foot mo...

Re: Unlock Notification

It amuses (and surprises) my passengers when I say, "I'm hot," and I get the reply, "Perhaps you should go for a swim."
