I own a 1999 Cadillac Seville STS. The glove box will not open and the Dealer says he may breeak it trying to open it to replace the lock assembly, and if so, I will be responsible for the cost of an entire new glove box, not just the lock. (Several hundred dollars) He also said this was a common problem. If so, I think it should be Cadillac's problem, not mine, but meanwhile I'll just leave it shut. PROBLEM: I can't get my owner's manual and the computer goes bonkers from time to time automatically reseting seats, steering wheel, etc. when the key is turned off or on. I NEED THE INSTRUCTIONS ON RESETTING THE AUTOMATIC CONTROLS FOR SEATS, LOCKS, STEERING WHEEL, ETC., HAVING SET THEM ONLY ONCE 10 YEARS AGO. Thanks.

Hi, my name isXXXXX reset the meory seats, put it in the positon you desire, then push the set button and 1 within 5 seconds. As for the glove box, if the lock wont open, then you will have to remove it anyway you can, and that usually ends up breaking it, I would find one at a salvage yard first, before you attemp to remove it.Tim

I managed to get a satisfactory setting on the seat and will accept the charge. However, I have some questions left unanswered regarding the resetting seats, steering wheel, locks, etc, from time to time.

There are two buttons on my dash to the right of the steering wheel-(1) Info Reset and (2) On Off.

There are two other buttons on the driver's door 1--- Exit

2--- Memory Set

 

I remember the Salesman at the Dealership using all of these buttons to customize my settings, and for the second driver, my wife. I would like to know how to reset these settings (and to be honest, without the manual now locked in the glove box, I don't even remember all of the settings available). If you could forward that information in a form that I can print out, I will keep it for future use. Thanks.
