Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Tahoe yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes I am, I have not tried anything yet, it just started this out of the blue

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

Battery Terminals are clean,

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Hello there, I am Cam.

I am Licensed technician at a GM dealership with more than 16 years experience. 
Like you, I am a user of this website and as such, any billing questions should be sent to customer service.

I ask that you please provide details and communicate with me so we can make your experience here worth 5 stars! I am around most days but not every minute of every day. If you reply while I am offline, I will respond when I am next online.

This is a software issue. The memory seat module has a glitch that develops in the software that reverses the operation.

The fix is to have the memory seat module updated at a shop that can do the programming. Ideally this is about a 40$ process.
