Default C5 'Set Memory Seat

I'm a first time user of this forum, just bought my 2002 corvette last week and can't figure out how to set the memory position when the key is removed from the ignition. Both keys (#1 & #2) have different settings after the keys have been removed. Previous owner had the #1 key set to retract all the way to the back position. I've read the manual numerous times and no instrutions that I can find. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Very easy, All you have to do is set up the seats, mirrors, air, radio the way you want and then hold the #1 button on the drivers door for fob 1 and button #2 on the door for fob 2, Hold the button till it flashes.
The seat will always move back for easy exit and enter unless you turn it off in the DIC.

Bill has it nailed. By the way, mine has to be locked and then unlocked for the positioning feature to occur.

Good information. I have had my Corvette for the whole summer and am still learning new things about it through this forum. I didn't know the climate setting was saved as well with the seat position and mirrors. Now moving into the colder months every time I turn on the car, "damn it why is the AC on? I know I turned it off last time."

now I know.

I don't want it to retract all the way back, key #2 doesn't. It retracts to about half the distance key #1 does. So I'm assuming you can set it to retract as far as you want.

As I said above, You have to turn off that feature in the DIC and then it won't move when you get in or out.
I think it is called easy entry, You have to turn it off.
I thought the drivers side went back farther because of the steering wheel.

I don't want to disable it, I want to use this feature. I just don't want it to retract all the way.

No setting that I know of. Mine is different from the pass side also, Never been an issue for me.

OK, When I bought my vette in 2013 It didn't have a key fob with it, So I bought one off ebay, but only one, So when I originally programmed it to work with my car...Is it the #1 or the #2 key fob? My car wont tell me...lol, I'm guessing it's the #1 fob. I don't remember what the DIC told me when I programmed the fob. Just trying to program my memory settings as you described here, Thanks, CorvetteBob

CorvetteBob, I believe it will be #1. I don't think it'll move to #2 until number 1 is programmed.

You can program up to three key fobs. Their "number" is determined by the order of sequence they're programmed. Since you've only programmed one fob, it's Number One.

I turned my feature off because I could not figure out how to keep it from moving all te way back. The memory feature on my C6 allows me to set the exit position anywhere.

With the seat all the way back on the C5 I can not fully depress the clutch to start the car.
