NOTE:
• Disconnect the center shoulder belt from the small buckle and lower the head restraints before attempting to fold/stow the power third row seats.
• To abort seat operation while seat is in motion, press a different seat position selector switch to stop the seat.
Once the seat stops moving, then the desired position can be selected.
• The third row power seat system includes obstacle detection for safe operation. When the system detects an obstacle, the motors will stop and reverse the motion a short distance to move the seat away from the obstacle. Should this occur, remove the obstacle and press the button again, for the desired position.
