Hello,
Before I call the dealer... I noticed my memory on my electric tilt steering isn't working anymore. When I hit on of the memory buttons my seat and mirrors will move but not the wheel anymore. It works fine if I move it with the switch on the steering wheel itself.. Up/down and In/out.

...Any Ideas??

make sure the wheel is where you want it & shut the car off & pull the key wheel will go up, put key back in & should work..

Thanks, but no luck. I tried the setting where you take key out and seat will go back and wheel will go up. Seat goes back, wheel doesn't move.

I have had the same problem. The steering wheel will tilt up then back down to where it should be after the key is reinserted. But when I change drivers, the wheel does not change. I am going to tell the dealer when I take if for an oil change

Ever get it checked out? I have not yet. They need the car for a while to trouble shoot. Haven't had time yet.

BTW...we are just over the river from you.

Not yet, hope to do by next week. My Nav just started to lock up so am hoping to get this fixed at the same time.

Tilt steering

I sometimes have the same problem. When the wheel does not move down and forward to my driving position, I manually set it and then reset the preset button on the door. This works for a while, but no permanent solution.

Hyundai also having steering wheel tilt problems

My Borrego has also had intermittent steering wheel tilt problems. I came across this info concerning the same problem on the Hyundai Genesis (I'm sure most know Kia is a subsidiary of Hyundai). They also had a temporary fix.

My Borrego had/has same problem. 2 years ago the dealer replaced the safety limit switch to get the manual tilt switch on the steering column to work. 6 months later, the dealer replaced the entire steering column assy. (under warranty) to fix this issue. Dealer said there were no replacement parts for the tilt/telescope feature. They talked to the KIA Service Repr. who told them that KIA had NO PROBLEMS with this system. Now the same problem is SLOWLY coming back.
