Ford Explorer: Seats / Memory Function

Ford Explorer 2020-2024 Owners Manual / Seats / Memory Function

WARNING: Before activating the memory seat, make sure that the area immediately surrounding the seat is clear of obstructions and that all occupants are clear of moving parts.

WARNING: Do not use the memory function when your vehicle is moving.

This feature recalls the position of the following:

  • Driver seat.
  • Power mirrors.
  • Optional power steering column.

The memory control is on the driver door.

Saving a PreSet Position

  1. Switch the ignition on.
  2. Adjust the memory features to your preferred position.
  3. Press and hold the preferred preset button until you hear a single tone.

You can save up to three preset memory positions. You can save a memory preset at any time.

Recalling a PreSet Position

Press and release the preset button associated with your preferred driving position. The memory features move to the position stored for that preset.

Note: You can only recall a preset memory position when the ignition is off, or when the transmission is in park (P) or neutral (N) and the vehicle is not moving if the ignition is on.

You can also recall a preset memory position by:

  • Pressing the unlock button on your remote control if it is linked to a preset position.
  • Unlocking the driver door handle if a linked remote control is present.

Note: Using a linked remote control to recall your memory position when the ignition is off moves the seat to the Easy Entry position.

Note: Pressing any active memory feature adjustment control, or any memory button during a memory recall, cancels the operation.

Linking a PreSet Position to your Remote Control

Your vehicle can save the preset memory positions for up to three remote controls.

  1. With the ignition on, move the memory features to the preferred positions.
  2. Press and hold the preferred preset button for about five seconds. A tone sounds after about two seconds. Continue holding until you hear a second tone.
  3. Within three seconds, press the lock button on the remote control you are linking.

To unlink a remote control, follow the same procedure – except in step 3, press the unlock button on the remote control.

Note: If more than one linked remote control or intelligent access key is in range, the memory function moves to the settings of the first key to recall a memory position.

Easy Entry and Exit Feature

If you enable the easy entry and exit feature, it moves the driver seat position rearward up to 2 in (5 cm) when you switch the ignition off.

The driver seat returns to the previous position when you switch the ignition on.

You can enable or disable this feature through the touchscreen. See Settings.
