Don't push down on key, this takes it to lock position, just turn it to the left without pushing key in, while holding left, jiggle seat, sholuld pop loose.

Unlock seat yamahy vity 2009

This is the answer as per the owners manual. Place the scooter on the centre stand.Insert the key into the main switch, and then turn it anticlockwise to the first OPEN position. If the main switch is in the LOCK position, turn the key anticlockwise to the second OPEN position. Do not push inward when turning the key from OFF to OPEN or from LOCK to OPEN. Lift the seat up from the back end. As this system is electronic, obviously you have to have the battery connected and charged up, otherwise you cannot open it without specialised knowledge. Hope this helps.

Hi i have a nissan terrano 2 extreme, i changed the battery in the key fob and it hasnt worked since how do i re-code the key fob please.

do you have the owners manual? Usually you have to turn the key back and forth a series of times. I know Ford has to be 10 times back and forth in less than 30 seconds. Then you aim the fob at the reciever on the dash. The owners manual should tell you. Ill give you a general nissan recode, im not sure if it will work for your Nissan.
. Place your key in the ignition and switch from the LOCK position to the ON position 6 times within 10 seconds ending with the key in the LOCK position
If done correctly the indicators should flash 2 times
2. Press and hold the UNLOCK button (black on P11) on your keyfob and while keeping it pressed then push the LOCK button (Red on P11) 3 times then release the UNLOCK button.
If done correctly the indicators should flash 2 times
3. To reprogram a further key/keyfob remove the key and put your second key in the ignition (or hold your fob close to the ignition barrel) leaving it in the LOCK position and repeat step 2.
Once done turn your ignition on and then back off to exit the coding procedure.
Test your keyfob(s) work ok. (do not leave your key in the car while doing this procedure incase you need to manually open the door with the key)

The middle row seat slides forward to the middle position (and several other positions as well.)

Remove middle row seats. Lift handle under 3rd row seat cushion on passenger side. Raise seat cushion up until it locks up. Then lift the lever on the passenger side of seat and pull seat forward until it locks in place.

I have no owners manual for my 2000 Mercedes S500. How do you change the radio station presets? What are the 1,2,3 numbers on the seat bottoms and how to use them? What is the ESP button for on the dash?...

To set the stations you just tune in to the station and hold the preset number button until it locks in. The numbers on the seat bottoms are presets for the seats. Put the seat into what ever position, you should also have a round green button, push that then push a number. Change the seat position and when you hit that number/hold the button it should go back to that position. ESP is traction control on the vehicle, it allows to disable it for snow at low speeds when wheel rotation is needed when known slippage will most likely occur.

Replaced the battery in my '04 MaximaSL. Everything works except...the driver seat nor the steering wheel won't retract when exiting the car now. The pers. settings are still set correctly...

Turns out, reading the owners manual works well...if you put the key in the "Lock" position, open and close the driver door 2 or 3 times, and all is well!
