Jeep Cherokee (KL): Driver memory seat

This feature allows the driver to store up to two different memory profiles, for easy recall through a memory switch. Each memory profile contains desired position settings for the driver seat and side mirrors and a set of desired radio station presets.

The memory switch is located on the driver's side door panel. The switch contains 3 buttons, a S (SET) button to activate the memory save function, the number (1) memory button and the number (2) memory button. The memory switch allows the driver to recall either of the two pre-programmed memory profiles by pushing the appropriate number button on the switch.

Programming The Memory Feature

To create a new memory profile, perform the following:

NOTE: Saving a new memory profile will erase an existing profile from memory.

1. Cycle the vehicle's ignition to the ON position.

2. Adjust all memory profile settings to desired preferences (i.e., seat, side mirror and radio station presets).

3. Push and release the SET button on the memory switch, then push the number (1) button within five seconds. The Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) or Driver Information Display (DID), will display which memory position is being set.

If desired, a second memory profile can be stored into memory as follows: 1. Cycle the vehicle's ignition to the ON position.

2. Adjust all memory profile settings to desired preferences (i.e., seat, side mirror and radio station presets).

3. Push and release the SET button on the memory switch, then push the number (2) button within five seconds. The EVIC/DID will display which memory position is being set.

NOTE:

  • Memory profiles can be set without the vehicle in PARK, but the vehicle must be in PARK to recall a memory profile.
  • To set a memory profile to your RKE transmitter, refer to "Linking And Unlinking The Remote Keyless Entry Transmitter To Memory" in this section.

Linking And Unlinking The Remote Keyless Entry Transmitter To Memory

Your Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitters can be programmed to recall one of two pre-programmed memory profiles with a push of the UNLOCK button on the RKE transmitter.

NOTE: Before programming your RKE transmitters you must select the "Memory To FOB" feature through the Uconnect system screen. Refer to "Uconnect Settings" in "Understanding Your Instrument Panel" for further information.

To program your RKE transmitters, perform the following: 1. Cycle the vehicle's ignition to the OFF position.

2. Select the desired memory profile 1 or 2.

NOTE: If a memory profile has not already been set, refer to Programming The Memory Feature in this section for instructions on how to set a memory profile.

3. Push and release the SET button on the memory switch, then within five seconds push and release the button labeled 1 or 2 accordingly. "Memory Profile Set" (1 or 2) will display in the EVIC/DID.

4. Push and release the LOCK button on the RKE transmitter within 10 seconds.

NOTE: Your RKE transmitters can be unlinked to your memory settings by pushing the SET (S) button, followed by pushing the UNLOCK button on the RKE transmitter within 10 seconds.

Memory Position Recall

NOTE: The vehicle must be in PARK to recall memory positions. If a recall is attempted when the vehicle is not in PARK, a message will display in the EVIC/DID.

To recall the memory settings for driver one, push MEMORY button number 1 or the UNLOCK button on the RKE transmitter linked to memory position 1.

To recall the memory settings for driver two, push MEMORY button number 2 or the UNLOCK button on the RKE transmitter linked to memory position 2.

Arecall can be cancelled by pushing any of the MEMORY buttons (S, 1, or 2) during a recall. When a recall is cancelled, the driver seat will stop moving. A delay of one second will occur before another recall can be selected.

Easy Entry/Exit Seat

This feature provides automatic driver seat positioning to enhance driver mobility when entering and exiting the vehicle.

The distance the driver seat moves depends on where you have the driver seat positioned when you cycle the vehicle's ignition to the OFF position.

  • When you cycle the vehicle's ignition to the OFF position, the driver seat will move about 2.4 in (60 mm) rearward if the driver seat position is greater than or equal to 2.7 in (67.7 mm) forward of the rear stop.

The seat will return to its previously set position when you cycle the vehicle's ignition to the ACC or RUN position.

  • The Easy Entry/Easy Exit feature is disabled when the driver seat position is less than 0.9 in (22.7 mm) forward of the rear stop. At this position, there is no benefit to the driver by moving the seat for Easy Exit or Easy Entry.

Each stored memory setting will have an associated Easy Entry and Easy Exit position.

NOTE: The Easy Entry/Exit feature is not enabled when the vehicle is delivered from the factory. The Easy Entry/Exit feature is enabled (or later disabled) through the programmable features in the Uconnect system. Refer to "Uconnect Settings/Customer Programmable Features" in "Understanding Your Instrument Panel" for further information.
