Hyundai Tucson: Integrated memory system

Hyundai Tucson - Fourth generation (NX4) - (2020-2023) - Owner's Manual / Convenient features / Integrated memory system

The IMS, or Integrated Memory System,

The IMS, or Integrated Memory System, for the driver's seat is equipped on some models. This feature allows the driver to store and recall the following position settings with a simple button operation:

  • Driver's seat position


Never attempt to operate the integrated memory system while the vehicle is moving.

This could result in loss of control, and an accident causing death, serious injury, or property damage.


  • If the battery is disconnected, the memory settings will be erased.
  • If the Integrated Memory System does not operate normally, we recommend that you have the system inspected by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.

Storing memory positions

  1. Make sure that the vehicle is in the ON position and the vehicle drives below 1.86mph.
  2.  Adjust the driver's seat to the desired fore/aft position, seat height, and reclining position.
  3.  Press the SET button. The system will beep once and notify you 'Press button to save settings' on the cluster LCD display.
  4. Press one of the memory buttons (1 or 2) within 4 seconds. The system will beep twice when the memory has been successfully stored.
  5. 'Driver 1 (or 2) settings saved' will appear on the cluster LCD display. The message appears only for the driver's seat position memory setting.

Recalling memory positions

  1. Make sure that the vehicle is in the ON position and the gear selector is in P (Park).
  2. Press the desired button (1 or 2). The system will beep once and the driver's seat position and side view mirror position will be automatically adjusted to the stored positions.
  3.  'Driver 1 (or 2) settings applied' will appear on the cluster LCD display.


  • Note that while the memory settings are being recalled, if you press the SET button or the corresponding IMS memory button (1 or 2) for which the settings are being recalled, the IMS will temporarily deactivate. If you select the alternate IMS memory button (1 or 2), the IMS will activate according to the settings of the alternate button.

    For example, if you press the SET button or the number 1 button with the number 1 setting in operation, the IMS will temporarily deactivate.

    If you press the number 2 button, then the IMS memory settings according to number 2 will activate.

  • If you adjust the driver seat settings while the IMS is recalling the stored positions, the memory settings will not be applied.
