Tell me what I did so that I don't do it again...

Got in my car this morning to go chase the little white ball and my seat was in wrong spot...and the mirrors...and the memory keys were blank...the blinker flash was different...EVERYTHING was reset except things like my radio station presets and my previous destinations.

And it was the same key that I've been using since I got it. So did I reset something somehow? I tried search, but didn't find anything on this topic.

Any ideas?

Happened to me once. Don't know why and hasn't reoccurred. All my preferences were gone. They reappeared after I turned off the car and got back in later.

Happened to me a few times early on for unidentified reason, and didn't happen again in 3 months. And, yes, I have been using the same fob since I got the car.

Do you have comfort acces? If so and you keep your key near the car it keeps it wake and it is losing battery charge.

To ensure that it will have enough charge to start, it will shutdown everything
and therefore losing memory.

Hmmmm...so does the fob battery last longer if you put it in the "ignition?"

I've had that happen to me once. Had to reset my seat positions etc and it hasn't happened again. Had my car around eight months now.
