How to program Car Key to memorize Seat and Miror

Does anyone program the two keys, each one with different Seat and Miror? For example, key#1 for the wife, which does memorize her seat and miror when key# 1 unlock the door, and key#2 for yourself setting. I don't seem can program it when I press on either key1 or 2, the seat still in same position either keys are pressed.

I'm pretty darn sure that only the dealer can do this. Here is something that might help:

or

Also, each key does not memorize a seat position. It only remembers the last position the seat was in when that key locked the car. Does that make sense?

The process is found in your manual.

Programming the keys to remember the last seat and mirror position is done at the dealer with the GT1 or DIS. Give your local dealer a visit and they should be able to take care of this for you.

What you need to do is the following:
1. Fill out the Car/Key Form and have the option programmed at the dealer
2. Use key #1 to open door, adjust seats, mirrors, steering wheels, A/C, etc.
3. Push M button on seat, then push one of the memory buttons
4. Close door with key #1
5. Use key #2 to open door, blah blah (repeat steps 2 to 4 above)
6. After you push M button for key #2, select a different memory button than the one you used in step #3

When you are done, each key should memorize the settings in your X5. For the Car/Key memory option, have the dealer activate the "Driver's Seat Position Memory" option (see form here: http://www.xoutpost.com/showthread.php?t=9519). I would choose "Active (when opening the driver's door)".

What year is your X5? These instructions are on page 49 of the 2004 manual and they do work. I have done it more than once and no dealer was ever required to program seats. My wifes key goes dead once ina a while in which case she has to use it a few days in the ignition to recharge it. Read and follow the direction carefully.
