I get to post the first problem

I have the Lariat Ultimate package with the memory seats. It is supposed to have the easy exit/entry driver seat option. When you pull the key out- the seat moves back some. When you insert the key- the seat moves forward to your programmed spot.

I cannot get this work for the life of me.

The OM says the option can be programmed via the LCD information center. Not. It is not in the menu choices. The manual continues to say that if you do not have the LCD info center, then the option can be programmed via a procedure of cycling the ignition on/off 3 times, then moving the seat forward or backwards. I can't get it to work. One time the seat moved back, and that was it. Nothing more.

Want to bet this will be the first re-flash?

I have tried it at least 5-6 times. The manual says:

The easy entry/exit feature can be turned off or on through the vehicle
message center (if equipped). If your vehicle does not have a message
center, the feature can be turned off or on through the following process:
1. Put the key into the ignition (The driver seat may move forward if the
easy entry/exit feature is activated).
2. Place the ignition key into the on position (do not start the vehicle).
When the vehicle is in the on position, the interior and exterior lights,
the climate controls, and the radio are functional without the engine
started. See Programming remote transmitters for ignition switch
diagram.
3. Turn the ignition key to the off position.
4. Cycle the ignition key between the off position and the on position a
total of three times ending with the ignition in the off position.
5. Engage the forward or rearward seat switch.
6. Remove the ignition key from the ignition switch. (The driver seat
may move rearward if the easy entry/exit feature is activated).
Steps 2 through 6 must be performed within a 20 second period. The
easy entry/exit feature will be deactivated. Repeating the above process
will also reactivate the easy entry/exit feature.

Maybe you could do what your doing but maybe not move the seat backwards and forwards at all? And just leave it as it is? Or maybe only move it forward OR only move it backwards? Or at the same time?

Or, (not trying to be a smarta$$ at all) you could call or swing by your dealer andget them to look at it and help you out. Could be something came unplugged or something.

the key cycle has to be done fast. Less then three seconds. Have you tried it that way? Also don't do it to fast. Has to take more then two seconds.

Same problem my buddy is having with his f250 ultimate lariat..and he took it to the dealer and all the salesman could not figure it out nor could the service dept...so needless to say they will call him when they find a solution!
