Х open the driver's door and the SmartKey is in position 0 or 1 in the ignition lock

The steering wheel only moves upwards if it has not already reached the upper end stop.

The steering wheel is moved to the last selected position when:
Х the driver's door is closed Х you insert the SmartKey into the ignition lock
or
Х you press the Start/Stop button once on vehicles with KEYLESS-GO When you close the driver's door with the ignition switched on, the steering wheel is also automatically moved to the previously set position.
