Entrance position do not drive message

Yesterday when i was driving i accidentally pushed the "E" button on the door (right above the 1 and 2 memory seat positions) and the seat and the steering wheel moved as they should but since i was driving i got this error message on the dash saying "Entrance position do not drive" and i cant seem to get rid of it.

i did a search on this forum and found nothing, i did search google and found some people moved the steering wheel to the extremes; up, down, in, out. And i tried that and it did not work.

this happened to me on another occasion a few months ago, i was on a red light and i moved my steering wheel up and i got the message but it did go away a few days later and i don't know what i did to make it go away. Anyone know a sure way to get rid of the message?

I got that error sometimes when the car had the convenience entry feature turned on. To correct it I had to tilt it up all the way, down all the way, up all the way and hold it. There was no magical way to get the error to go away, and sometimes it took several tries, and sometimes it would not tilt back down at all. It would clear up eventually and does not come back unless that auto entry tilt thing is turned on (usually someone else turns it on by mistake). Good luck.

I tried moving the steering wheel in all kinds of positions and it didn't work. and yesterday when i left work to get something to eat i get in the car and the message was gone without me doing anything. After i eat i start messing with the wheel again and i get the message again then i just moved the steering wheel around and turn the convenience thing on and off and it went away again lol. im glad it's not there anymore but sux that there isn't a for sure solution for resolving the issue.

anyways this issue was gone but of course i get another one, my car started riding low on the way home then all the way down when i parked it now it won't raise back up grrr. but thats on another thread i started lol.

It will go off on its own after a number of drive cycles.

I've had a similar issue. Last winter the battery went flat and then when the monkeys from my towing company jumped it the Entrance Position message popped up and hasn't gone away. The seat motors work fine and move in every direction. The steering wheel on the other hand has been more tricky. Since that day that message has not gone away. The steering wheel moves up and in but not out and down. Then the other day I got mad at it and jiggled the knob and shut the car off and restarted it and the message went away and the steering wheel moved in all directions for the entire day. Then that night I took the battery off because it has a habit of going flat in the cold and when i started the car and retried what I did the previous day nothing happened. It is the most bizarre thing ever...
