RAV4 Excel 2020 - how to set seat memory?

Recommended Posts

Just taken delivery of a new RAV4 Excel and can't get seat memory to work. I've followed the instructions in the manual to press SET then 1 or 2 until buzzer sounds. There's a beep, then if I move the seat and try to recall the position nothing happens except a beep when I press the button. What am I doing wrong? Car is in Park with engine on.

It can be a bit fiddly, I noticed that the drivers door needs to shut to do it as well (?).

Set the seat to the desired position and then press and hold 'set' as well as the number you want until you hear the beep.

Apparently you can set each remote to a different drivers position as well, but I'm not sure if I can be bothered!

Just discovered the solution on another thread:

Adjust seat all the way forward, all the way back, all the way up, all the way down, all the way back reclined, all the way back to vertical, tip front of seat all the way up then all the way down. Between each step hold the switch in that position for 3 seconds.

Lo and behold, seat memory now works. Mind you, very sloppy PDI from dealer.
