Open both doors, actuate the windows up and down two times, close the dfoors, turn off the ignition, and they should be reset. Let me know if this works, or not. I will still be here. Thank you.

I have a 2006 lincoln ls sport and the drivers seat is stuck in one position there is only power to the lumbar


The dirver seat module is attached to the underside of the seat frame. It must be calibrated if replaced. The dealer can use a tool to get failure codes (DTCs) from teh module. 1/2 hour labor charge to extract codes.


Front Seats
The front seats have the following features:
  • Driver memory
  • Power lumbar (optional)
  • Manual lumbar
  • Horizontal, vertical front and rear tilt adjustments (driver)
  • Horizontal, vertical front tilt adjustment (passenger)
  • Power recline
  • Climate controlled (optional)
Adjustment of the seat may be accomplished with the seat control switch located on the side of the seat.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Principles of Operation
Driver Power Seat - Memory
NOTE: The memory power seat track may stall when operating at 0°C (32°F) or below. Once the vehicle's interior temperature rises above 0°C (32°F), normal operation should return.
The driver power seat is controlled by the driver seat module (DSM). The DSM does not need to be configured, however the driver seat does need to be calibrated when the DSM is installed. The driver seat control switch provides voltage to the DSM when activated. The NEUTRAL position of each driver seat control switch position is a ground state through the seat control switch contacts. A voltage input causes the DSM to power the appropriate motor until the input is removed. Ground is the normal state of the motor circuits through the DSM and is not switched to control the motors. The DSM internally switches the appropriate line from ground to power to adjust the motors.
As the seat is adjusted, the DSM constantly monitors the motor position sensors to record the current seat position. The DSM will remove power from the motor upon termination of the seat control switch input or if the DSM does not see movement from the motor by monitoring the position sensor. The DSM must be calibrated to the seat track it is controlling. For additional information, refer to Seat Calibration. Once the DSM is calibrated to the seat track, it will only allow movement within the calibrated range.
Seat Calibration
The DSM is calibrated using a diagnostic tool. The calibration procedure automatically powers the driver power seat through its full range of motion and records the FULL STOP positions by monitoring the motor position sensors. Once the FULL STOP positions or range of the seat have been recorded, the DSM will only operate within the calibrated range. Any input attempting to drive the seat beyond the calibrated range will be ignored. This calibration is used for all seat control functions including manual switch control and memory recall positioning. During the seat calibration, the DSM may identify a function that is inoperative, such as a position sensor not changing. If the DSM identifies a concern that has a related diagnostic trouble code (DTC), the DSM will set the related DTC at the end of the validation procedure.
The calibration procedure powers the seat track adjustments to the end of their travel, which is determined by the DSM sensing a change of state in the motor position sensors. If there is a concern with the seat track or motor position sensor that limits the travel, the DSM will interpret the stopping point as the end of travel and store the position. The DSM is not able to determine if the seat has moved to its FULL TRAVEL position. It is only capable of monitoring and storing the amount of travel seen by the position sensor changing states.
For additional information on carrying out the power seat calibration procedure, refer to the diagnostic tool operating manual.
Memory Seat
Memory seat positioning can be recalled with the memory switches on the driver door panel or a programmed remote keyless entry transmitter. In either case, the DSM receives a memory recall 1 or 2 command from the driver door module (DDM) over the SCP communication network. The memory recall switches are a hardwired input to the DDM. The DDM also receives the remote keyless entry transmitter signals. Once a valid memory recall command is received from the DDM, the DSM moves the driver seat to the position stored in memory by powering the appropriate motors and monitoring the motor position sensors until the position is reached.
This system allows automatic positioning of the driver seat to 2 programmable positions.
  • To program position 1, move the driver seat to the desired position using the seat control switch. Depress the set button. Within 5 seconds, depress button 1.
  • To program position 2, repeat the previous procedure using the set button and button 2.
  • To recall position 1, depress button 1. To recall position 2, depress button 2.
A position can only be recalled when the transmission selector is in PARK or NEUTRAL. A position may be programmed at any time.
Easy Exit/Easy Entry
The easy exit function moves the seat backwards about 2 inches when the ignition key is removed from the ignition switch. The DSM receives a key out command over the SCP communication network and powers the driver seat rearward. This function will not operate if the seat is less than the travel distance to the end of the track, or the function has been deactivated at the message center driver personality settings. The DSM will also cancel this operation if a valid input command is received, such as the seat control switch or memory recall request.
The DSM will record the current seat position before powering the seat for an easy exit function. This recorded position will be used to return the seat to this position on the easy entry operation. During easy entry operation, the seat is returned to the position previous to the easy exit operation. Easy entry operation will be cancelled if a valid input command is received by the DSM.
Passenger Power Seat
The passenger power seat motors are hardwired to the passenger seat control switch. The circuits are normally at ground through the seat control switch. The individual circuit is switched to power when the specific adjustment position is selected.

2001 lexus ls430: warning light is on with message "vsc off". When I press vsc button on dash, nothing changes. Would like to know the likely problem and solution. Thank you. Dennis


yaw sensor is out of calibration, most likely from hoisting vehicle in air. sensor needs to be calibrated before light will go out. jump pin 3 and 5 of dlc under driver side dash. connect jumper wire with ignition off, turn ignition on, vsc light should flash, let it flash for awhile (10 sec). turn ignition off and disconnect jumper wire.(do this with vehicle station on ground).

Passenger window won't work using the driver side control switch


Open the window with the local button and keep the button pressed for 3 seconds after it has fully opened. Then close the window and keep the button pressed for 3 seconds after it has fully closed. This calibrates the position of the window which it lost when you changed the battery. Good luck

How do i reset the tpms on a 08 implala SS after a tire rotation,without a owners manual


You have two minutes to match the first tire/wheel position, and five minutes overall to match all four tire/wheel positions. If it takes longer than two minutes, to match the first tire and wheel, or more than five minutes to match all four tire and wheel positions the matching process stops and you need to start over.
The TPMS sensor matching process is outlined below:
  1. Set the parking brake.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to ON/RUN with the engine off.
  3. Press the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter's lock and unlock buttons at the same time for approximately five seconds. The horn sounds twice to signal the receiver is in relearn mode and TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE message displays on the DIC screen.
  4. Start with the driver side front tire.
  5. Remove the valve cap from the valve cap stem. Activate the TPMS sensor by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure for five seconds, or until a horn chirp sounds. The horn chirp, which may take up to 30 seconds to sound, confirms that the sensor identification code has been matched to this tire and wheel position.
  6. Proceed to the passenger side front tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  7. Proceed to the passenger side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  8. Proceed to the driver side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5. The horn sounds two times to indicate the sensor identification code has been matched to the driver side rear tire, and the TPMS sensor matching process is no longer active. The TIRE LEARNING ACTIVE message on the DIC display screen goes off.
  9. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK/OFF.
  10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure level as indicated on the Tire and Loading Information label.
  11. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems.

Window goes up then down half way on drivers side


I know this answer is going to sound strange but I had exactly the same problem on a 2007 93 convertible. When you closed the window it would reach the top and then go back down half way. You could edge the window up slowly but as soon as it reached the top it opened again. This was solved by taking to a dealer and upgrading the software for the windows under the manufacturers warranty. There is a firmware update that adjusts the sensitivity for the sensors and solved the problem instantly and i've had no problems for over two months.
Hope this helps.
