Memory feature

Memory feature  - Tilt/telescope steering wheel (if equipped) - Driver Controls - Lincoln MKX Owners Manual - Lincoln MKX

The steering column positions are saved when doing a memory set function and can be recalled along with the vehicle personality features when a memory position is selected through the remote entry transmitter, keyless entry keypad or memory switch on the instrument panel. Refer to Front seats in the Seating and Safety Restraints chapter.

If the steering column adjustment control is pressed during memory recall it will cancel the automatic operation and the column will respond to manual adjustment of the control.

WARNING: Never adjust the steering column when the vehicle is moving.

On vehicles with memory feature, to prevent damage to the steering column, the steering column is designed to set a stopping position just short of the end of the column position. If the steering column encounters an object while moving up or down, a new stopping position will be set. To reset the steering column to its normal stopping position:

Х After encountering the new stopping position, press the steering column control again to override.
Х Continue pressing the control until it reaches the end of the column position.
Х A new soft stop will be automatically set. The next time the steering column is tilted it will stop just short of the end of the column position.
