Buick Encore: Memory Seats

Memory Seats

If equipped, the MEM, 1, and 2 buttons on the outboard side of the driver seat are used to manually save and recall the driver seat and outside mirror positions. These manually stored positions are referred to as Button Memory positions.

The vehicle will also automatically save driver seat and outside mirror positions to the current driver Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter when the ignition is turned off. These automatically stored positions are referred to as RKE Memory positions. See Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) System Operation

Storing Button Memory Positions

To save positions into Button Memory:

  1. Adjust the driver seat and outside mirrors to the desired driving positions.
  2. Press and hold MEM (Memory) and 1 at the same time until a beep sounds.
  3. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 for a second driver using 2.

Recalling Button Memory Positions

To recall the Button Memory positions, press and hold 1 or 2. The driver seat and outside mirrors move to the positions stored to those buttons when pressed.

Releasing 1 or 2 before the stored positions are reached stops the recall.

If something has blocked the driver seat while recalling a memory position, the recall may stop.

Remove the obstruction; then press and hold the appropriate manual control for the memory item that is not recalling for two seconds. Try recalling the memory position again by pressing the appropriate memory button. If the memory position is still not recalling, see your dealer for service.

Recalling RKE Memory Positions

The RKE memory feature can recall the driver seat and outside mirrors to previously stored RKE Memory positions when entering the vehicle.

Every time the ignition is turned off, the positions of the driver seat and outside mirrors are automatically stored to the RKE transmitter that was used to start the vehicle. These positions and settings are called RKE Memory positions and may be different than the previously mentioned Button Memory positions saved to the 1 or 2 buttons.

  • On vehicles with RKE, press on the RKE transmitter and open the driver door.
  • On vehicles with Keyless Access, press the lock/unlock button on the outside driver door handle and open the door. The RKE transmitter must be present for the recall to activate.
  • If the driver door is already open, press   on the RKE transmitter to activate the recall.

This feature can be turned on or off.

See Vehicle Personalization

To stop recall movement, press one of the memory, power mirror, or power seat controls.

If something has blocked the driver seat while recalling a memory position, the recall may stop.

Remove the obstruction; then press and hold the appropriate manual control for the memory item that is not recalling for two seconds. Try recalling the memory position again by opening the driver door and pressing the RKE transmitter button. If the memory position is still not recalling, see your dealer for service.

Easy Exit Driver Seat

This feature moves the seat rearward allowing the driver more room to exit the vehicle.

To activate, turn off the ignition and open the driver door. If the driver door is already open, turning off the ignition will activate the recall.

This feature can be turned on or off.

To stop recall movement, press one of the memory, power mirror, or power seat controls.

If something has blocked the driver seat while recalling the exit position, the recall may stop. Remove the obstruction; then press and hold the power seat control rearward for two seconds.
