Do you mean you can't get it to tilt by releasing the lever, or once it's tilted, it won't go forward.

Am I the only one here that would really just love a manual slide system like older cars??? The motorized slide is so painfully slow that it makes me twitch waiting on it.

He’s saying his levers are broken and can’t even tilt the back of the seat.

Yeah I’m just answering the previous member’s post asking whether he’s talking about a hardware mechanical issue or the seat moving forward automatically - software issue.

From comments it appears the mechanical release is broken inside the seat. Car in South Africa with no local dealer. Any ideas how to fix it?

I bought my GTS 12/18, they put in a new battery and I had tried the auto forward on the driver seat and it worked fine but I didnít try the passenger sid until this week and it didnít work. I tried the reset instructions listed above several times but the seat didnít move forward, all other seat functions work. What should I check next?

Iíve tried the various methods of resetting the seats auto movement forward but to no avail. The passenger seat works fine with switches with full movement. I guess Iíll have the dealership look at when I bring the car in for itís annual service. Any idea what is wrong and cost to fix?

I just did mine the other day. the passengers side is quite tricky to do, it took me 7 or 8 tries. you really need to be quick with it. i thought I was doing it wrong at first. if everything else on the seat works than i’m pretty sure you just aren’t doing it correctly. I sat in the passenger seat with door closed, had the key turned to the ON position then when I turned it off I opened the door, got out and followed the instructions as fast as possible. the forward and backward movements on the seat button should take about a half second on each one. don’t want to do it too quickly where it won’t register but also need to be fast.

I just had this after my ecu recall. Why i have no idea but timing was annoying. Let me put it simple.

1. Key in and turn on, lower drivers window
2. Close door, reach in and turn off but leave key in
3. Open door
4. Push not super quick but just quick forward back 3 times (so it is f,b,f,b,f,b)
5. Lift chrome seat lever and tilt lumbar forward

It should go back and front and back by itself to recalibrate. Viola...the easy entry lever should work again.

This also works if passenger side is acting up too which was my situation. I just had to dash around the car to get to the pass seat control in time. Sneakers on ppl. Hahaha

Whomever developed the reset function needs to be taken to the gallows. Oh wait...it's a Maserati! The function was probably developed late on a Friday afternoon, after the engineers had finished their 6th bottle of wine!

The passenger seat in my 2013 convertible refuses to move forward when the seat back is tilted forward and after attempting the reset function about 10 times, I've given up. Fortunately, we don't let anyone ride in the back seat so it's not a big deal. the driver's seat function works perfectly.

Ok, what a coincidence! My 2012 GTS has exactly the same issue and like jw38, I have tried the insane reset procedure so many times
my neighbor wonders why I’m running around the car doing the reset dance!��. There has to be something that is being missed!

don’t run around it. start by sitting in the passenger seat with the key on and door closed. turn the key off open the door and do the steps
