Comfort memory is activated at time of ignition-on,
I certainly agree that it would seem the Dealer did not install the remote start properly.
However, unless I am misunderstanding what you are trying to state above, there is one small correction to be made, dealing only
with the one sentence quoted above.
In the MKZ, the "Memory Seat" function is not activated at the time of "ignition on".
In a properly programmed and operating system, the "Memory Seats" will move into position after one of three actions, and none require the ignition to be switched to he "On" position.
First, if the IKT's have been programmed to the seat positions by the vehicle owner: In a properly working system, pressing the IKT unlock button should signal the seat to move to the programmed seat position. The key does not need to be in the ignition nor turned to the "Ignition On" position for this to work (if working properly). This is the function which 70GT500 seems to have lost.
Second, if the IKT's have not
been programmed to the "Memory Seat" positions by the vehicle owner: Pressing the unlock button on the IKT's will only unlock the door and have no affect on the seat positions. When the driver places the key in the ignition, the seat will move to the last programmed seating position, assuming the memory buttons have been programmed previously and one of the programmed seat positions is currently in use. Again, the key (and ignition) does not
need to be turned to the "On" position. Merely inserting the key into the ignition activates the "Memory Seat" function.
Third, pushing either the "1" or "2" seat memory button on the drivers door.
Again, I think the trouble is simply either confusion in your "Memory Seat" function description (or very possibly me misunderstanding what you were trying to say
Since everything seemed to have worked fine until the remote start installation, I certainly do not disagree with your diagnosis.
Hopefully 70GT will let us know the outcome.
