    Disabling the auto seat & steering wheel thing...

    53 reg W203 C32 AMG. When you get in the car the seat & steering wheel go to your position & when you get out they go back. Can this be de activated at all? Only had the car a few weeks & it's doing my head in. Complete waste of my time & battery.... :wallbash: Cheers.

    I'm shortly taking my E220 W212 across the channel on a ferry. They usually ask you to disable the alarm and any internal motion/tow away sensors. I seem to recall years ago there was a button to do this for my W210, possibly also for my W211, but after a cursory look at my current set of...
