I've followed all of the procedures spelled out in the Owner's Manual but to no avail.
The problem is that when I use the remote to lock and unlock the car, the driver's seat will return to some other position which it must have been taught/learned with a previous owner (someone who must have been considerably shorter than I am).
Following the manual, with the ignition on and having chosen my preferred seating position, I used the M, key, 1 and 2 buttons on the memory console (on the door sill) to set all 3 (key, 1 and 2) for that position (I am the only driver and use but one remote ignition key). Yet when I use the key remote to lock and then unlock the car, the seat finds that long-ago previous setting. Any of those 3 buttons will bring the seat to my favored position, but I cannot get the system to "forget" that old setting.
I've even followed the manual's steps for clearing the stored seat positions from memory (key button and #2 button pressed simultaneously and held for 5 seconds); then went and reset all 3 buttons (as per the above paragraph), but still the problem remains as described above.
Just a bit of a PITA every time I park and lock the car to have to use one of the buttons to put the seat back in my favored position. Anyone know of a work-around to get this resolved (short of visiting the stealership)?

Simply put: How do I go about purging/erasing the rogue seat position out so when I use the key-fob to lock/unlock the door it's not screwing my intentions??? Other than that one issue, everything else in this system is working as it should.

I had the same problem.  I found a thread,not too long ago, mentioning to take driver side sill plate off and look under seat memory pushbuttons to check for a disconnected plug. Yup, mine was unplugged. Whole thing took me 20 minutes to do with an ipad to display the dyi instructions, flat screw driver and hex heads. Now my keys and seats work flawlessly. Might be worth a try. Happy hunting!
