My wife and I each have had an incident with our 2001 Suburban LT over the
weekend. While idling the electric seat starts to ride forward on it's own
(like it's resetting itself or something) and the seat position memory is
lost. It seems to happen randomly. In my wife's incident the clock on the
radio was also reset. When it happened to me the clock was fine.
I was using the power windows when my incident happened and I'm not sure
that had anything to do with it. It was also very cold over the weekend...
below zero both days so that may have something to do with it also.
Other than these two quick incidents the Suburban has run fine. Has anyone
heard of such a thing?
Well, my first impression is that GM still has problems with those Metripack
Being electrical related. A few questions need to be answered, since Im not
familiar with the later models. Does disconnecting the
battery reset the custom preferences? If so then I'd suspect any 12v feed to the
dash area. Particularly the Bulkhead connector. In
cold weather things really shrink, and you may have connector contact problems.
Otherwise, the brains that store the info (ECM?) may be bad.
2001? Sounds like a warranty job. Take advantage of it.
Hope that helps.
<<< 2001? Sounds like a warranty job.
Yes, I bought the vehicle used and have an extended warranty on it. I was
planning to bring it in to get checked out, but I thought I'd check first to
see what the group here had to say.

It happened again to me this morning. I was idling in a parking lot and was
raising my window back up and the seat started moving on me. It moved in
several positions... almost like I chose one of the seat presets or
Weird. My seats have a mind of their own. It seems to be related to the
Power Windows mechanism though...
