Strange remote start , maybe bug

Normal behavior
  1. I use remote start to start the car
  2. I get close to the car
  3. Open the front door with the handle.
  4. get into the car, press the brake and start the car, the seat and steering wheel are adjusting
If I open the rear door first with the handle before step 3 above and then continue the front seat and steering wheel will not move and adjust to driver 1.

Can someone confirm this?

That happens with my MDX Sport Hybrid too.

Similar things. The RLX SH behaves differently than my '17 MDX non-SH when in remote start mode. Similarly, the auto unlock mode behaves differently as well, even without the remote start on. My wife and I played with the settings, and I found just the other day that part of my problem is that my (Driver 2) key's auto unlock only did the driver's door, which created a bunch of odd behavior. When I changed the setting to unlock all doors, behavior got a lot better in these strange 1-off scenarios. I'll look more closely at what happens when in terms of the seat/wheel position with different scenarios. But it is different - and probably a "feature" and not a "bug"... ;-)

Very Interesting. This happens to me sometimes and I've never narrowed it down.

The other night it was definitely when I opened the passenger door first and then opened the driver's door and got in the driver's seat.

However, it happened without pre-starting the car. I had to stop the car, put it in park and hit the driver 1 button to get the seat/steering wheel to go to preset settings.

I'm always forgetting our other car the TLX doesn't have rear door lock/unlock sensors.
