2004 Lexus GX470 - Steering memory disabled after remote starting car with Function 6 (Door Lock) to Mode 2

0 votes
My steering memory function where once you put the key in the steering wheel will adust to the last memory position has stopped functioning after I changed Function 6 (Door Lock), Mode 2 (Unlock before remote-start & Lock after remote-start.).  I know the memory function still works in my car because once I put the key in, the key sense will trigger the steering wheel to the last memory position.  It worked before when Function 6 (Door lock) was at the default mode 1 (No).  I had to switch mode 2 as the factory alarm would be triggered when activated the remote start feature.  

When I am inside the car, and use the remote start feature, I can see the car unlocks and the steering wheels moves the steering wheel a little, then stops before the car is locked again and then the remotes start feature is activated.  I think the key sense signal is stopped once the car is locked again, and then the remote start is activated.  

How do I fix this issue or would this required an update and a reflash of the Evo One?

The vehicle might be recognizing the remote start startup as a different user, since it is not started with the key that has your programmed memory options. Normally, the fix is to setup your seats/steering wheel while the vehicle is running under remote start. This way, whenever you remote start, every will set itself the way you want it.

This method doesn't work, I have tried it.  I am pretty sure the problem is the keysense is disable after the factory alarm is disarmed before the remote start feature is activated.
