It wold probably be easier to disconnect the battery for a bit then reconnect and see if it will go back further. If not there might be something in the track stopping it.

My 2009 Hummer SUT's easy exit seat recall doesn't work properly. The seat will go back but will not lower, recline, or do any other memory function. The chime will only chime once instead of twice when...

I have read that there may be an issue with the seat motor control unit. Check with your dealer on a recall or tech bulletin. It may need to be reprogrammed to work properly.
Although this is for a 2004 it may carry over to the 2009 model:
Document ID# 1694588
2004 Chevrolet Tahoe - 4WD


Subject: Memory Seat May Not Return to Requested Position (Reprogram Driver Seat Module) #04-08-50-016C - (08/12/2005)

Models: 2003-2005 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Escalade EXT

2003-2005 Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe

2003-2005 GMC Sierra, Yukon, Yukon XL, Yukon Denali

All with Seat FRT, Individual (Non BKT) (RPO AN3)

2003-2005 HUMMER H2 with Seat, Front Bucket Deluxe (RPO AR9)

This bulletin is being revised to update the correction information. Please discard Corporate Bulletin Number 04-08-50-016B (Section 08 -- Body and Accessories).

Some customers may comment that with repeated cycling of the memory seat between the 'exit' and one of the 'presets', the position of the seat may "creep" forward or rearward out of expected adjustment.

There is a coding deficiency in the software for the memory seat module.

Technicians are to reprogram the driver seat module with an updated software calibration. The previous bulletin stated to use a service calibration that was released with TIS satellite data update version 4.5. Feedback has proved that calibration to be ineffective in eliminating the memory seat creep condition. An updated service calibration was released with TIS satellite data update version 6.5 available June 13, 2005. This new calibration has additional memory seat creep protection. As always, make sure your Tech 2® is updated with the latest software version.

Important: After programming is complete, move the seat all the way rearward and down, then bump the seat slightly forward and up. This position will be just off the end of travel hard stops. Reset both memory seat exit positions at this position. Having the seat set at just off the hard stops will aid in reducing the creep condition.

How do you turn off the passenger side airbag of a 2005 Sierra??

if there isn't a key switch in the dash, then the airbag has a sensor in the passenger seat which measures the weight of the occupant in that seat and if occupant is to light in weight the airbag will be shut off automatically. otherwise if occupant is heavier than 110 lbs the airbag should then be on.

I have a 2005 gmc sierra with heated leather. my heated seats quit working. when i turn them on they light up like normal but they shut off in about 30 seconds. checked all fuses and they are fine. any...

the heated elements are no good. this problem is common. you will need to replace the elements in the seat because the link is broken in it. it is not an easy fix since the whole seat has to be taken right apart and the part replaced.

Heater problems

Probably passenger temp actuator. Make sure connectors are fully seated on right I/P junction block. If they are, it's more than likely a faulty actuator. Dash pad and air distribution ductwork have to be removed to access actuator.
