Easy-Access/Easy-Out Feature Questions?

I purchased a, what I believe is a Job 2 (Build date 10-22-2011, Kentucky Truck Plant) 2011 Ford F-350 Lariat Diesel, with just about every option installed; however, when following the manuals instructions to enable the "Easy-access/easy-out feature" for the drivers seat, the process never seems to work (Instructions below).

Quote:
Easy-access/easy-out feature (if equipped)

The easy entry feature can be turned off or on through the vehicle
message center. Refer to Message center in the Instrument Cluster
chapter.

The easy entry feature automatically moves the driver’s seat 2 inches
(5 cm) forward when:
• the transmission is in P (Park)
• the key is inserted into the ignition cylinder
(If the seat is located less than 2 inches [5 cm] from the front of the seat
track, the seat will travel up to 1⁄4 inch (6 mm) to the front of the seat
track).

The easy out feature automatically moves the driver’s seat 2 inches
(5 cm) backward when:
• the transmission is in P (Park)
• the key is removed from the ignition cylinder
(If the seat is located less than 2 inches (5 cm) from the rear of the seat
track, the seat will travel up to 1⁄4 inch (6 mm) to the rear of the seat
track).

If the memory setting is programmed through the remote transmitter,
upon unlocking the door via remote entry system, the seat position will
travel to the desired memory setting less 2 inches (5 cm). Once entering
the vehicle and inserting the key in the ignition while in P (Park), the
easy entry feature will move the seat an additional 2 inches (5 cm) to
the desired memory location. See Locks and Security for activating the
memory seat feature through the remote entry system.
I was at Pacifico Ford this morning for an oil change and to address this issue and the technicians basically told me that my vehicle may or may not be equipped for this feature and that they we're sure how to find out if it was.

Question# 1: Does anyone out here have this feature on their truck and if so, when was the vehicle made (Build date and factory)?

Question# 2: How do I find out if I, in-fact do have this feature?

Question# 3: How to I access it or advise my dealer accordingly?

Aside from this issue; I am also have issues getting my dealer (Pacifico Ford) to research firmware updates on my truck via OASIS. I have a rough shifting issue, which I know was covered under a previous TSB 10-23-9 and there have also been later releases as well.

Question# 4: Can anyone recommend a good DIESEL Ford Dealer in Southern NJ?

Thanks in advance...

Jerry

My build date is 5/11 F350 Lariat CrewCab fully loaded and the easy-access and easy out feature does work. As soon as I put the key in the seat moves forward and when I remove the key the seat moves rearward.
No idea on how to check the computer to see if you have it or if it can be disabled or enabled.

you really shouldn't post your VIN# out in the public eye

Thanks for the tip on the VIN, I just removed it. I was aware how the feature worked as I have had this on numerous other Ford's I've owned and I do enjoy and find it VERY handy, especially running emergency scenes and needing to jump in and out of the truck quickly.

Hopefully someone else can shed some additional light on the topic.

Thanks for the comment...

Regards,

Jerry

To enable it or disable it should be under the vehicle settings on the screen in the dash. I disabled mine because I run with my seat all the way back so it really does me no good. Hope this helps. Let me know if you can NOT find it and I will check on mine exactly what sceen it is on.

I finally heard back from Ford engineering today on this issue. They've told me that only mid-production Job 2 trucks actually included this feature. The mid-production job 2 trucks began coming off the assembly lines on or around 11-15-2010; mine wad built on 10-07-2010... According to the engineers, the vehicle cannot be upgraded to include this option without replacing the seat module and the instrument cluster. This sucks, not sure why my manual says it should be there...

do you have the 2 switches on the drivers door to move the seat to its set position. should do the same thing except you have to hit the switch when you remove or insert the key.

Micheletti,

That's funny! When we enter a new year I have a hard time changing the year and as the year gets later I have a hard time typing the previous year. Good catch and thanks for pointing that out; I went ahead and edited the years to reflect 2010 instead of 2011... I too would love a future built truck; make it a King Ranch this time; the leather makes all the difference!

Somebody tell me why it's a bad idea to post your VIN. It's not like it's your Social Security number. If anybody wants it they just have to look in the window of your truck. I'm sure if anything bad could be done with a VIN they the manufacturer wouldn't make it visible from outside the vehicle. Maybe I'm wrong.

As for the OP. Glad to hear you figured it out. I had my dealer sitting in my truck for 2 hours trying to get it to work a week after I bought it. I had just kind of forgotten about it until now.

Same here!! It has instructions in my manual (truck built 7/10), but I can't figure it out.
