If you save it to seat memory, would it stop moving? Or is it programmed to move up and way anytime any driver gets in and out?

When you turn off ignition the steering wheel rises to highest position so it's easier to get out and back in. So a built in feature. As a default on E53 the up/down movement for easy entry is set active but the in/out movement not active.

Ditto my 2002 4.4. Works currently, but has been inop in the past. Specifically for the time the seat controller was broken. Once I replaced that with an ebay unit the up/down as well as in/out started working again.

As does my 2001...sometimes, whenever it feels like it.

For the last few months, my steering wheel and drivers's seat will move around as I unlock the truck with my remote, but never move as I get out. Though I re-programmed the seat buttons several times, it still hunts for position for a few seconds. However, since I'm the sole driver, the wheel and the seat always are in my favored position before I sit down. ??? Doesn't matter if I use my original diamond key remote (with chip), or my E-bay key (without chip inside).

Another thing: the passenger-side mirror sometimes dips when backing, then resumes its' normal position going forward, but at other times, the resumed position is way-off. So, lately, I've disabled the mirror dip, so I don't have to reposition the mirror while driving...not a big deal.

Could you give a bit more specs. What error does NCS give you? Did you try to write VIN on it first?
