I am interested to see what it would entail to add memory seating to the drivers seat in our Atlas. I found a part number for the trim/control bezel for the side of the seat that has the buttons in it but wondered if it would need to be coded into the system via VAGCOM? Any thoughts, anyone else try this or have any input? Thanks a million!

Part Number for Reference:
3CN881313AZA2

Picture of said part for clicks:

You will most certainly have to do some coding and that may not be possible with VCDS etc., may require the dealer to handle. Also, need to figure out if you need any other modules beyond the seat control bits.

I'm guessing there is a memory module somewhere that is needed. Since there are power seats with and without memory I am guessing there is more involved than just the trim piece with controls, and that there is a module required. You may have to search parts lists to find it.

I would call the dealer. I swapped seats in a few cars and on one occasion the dealer charged me a hundred bucks to get rid of a check engine light. I would find out if extra parts are involved in your project. It might be expensive.

I have already attempted to discuss with dealer service but as usual they are clueless! That is why I value the forums for cars so much as you can find folks out there sometimes who have already trial and error'ed the job you are looking to tackle. I figure the seat is already power now you just need some way to store and recall saved seating positions with the new seat control panel having the buttons to select the seating modes and most likely coding to enable what is in the computer that will allow the seat state to be saved. I really cannot see what else should need done but I am not expert especially with electrical or coding. If I ever do get around to attempting this though, I will certainly share my findings. Not having a job at the moment kind of puts a damper on this being a "needed" expense LOL!
