      If one has 2 "IA"keys programmed and both people approach the vehicle, how does the car know who the driver will be? Do you have to push 1 or 2 on the door to set the seat?

      It doesn't. You have to press the memory buttons on the door to get the seat to the position you want. The only exception to this is using the door pillar keypad. If you have the seats #1 and #2 position's set and you program two codes into the keypad, the first code will correspond to the #1 positions and the second code to the #2. Unlocking the door with the keypad will then automatically make the seat go to the appropriate position depending on which code you used.

      What if you use the IA key designated for 1 or 2 to unlock the doors...will the seat move to the corresponding position? I would assume it should.

      True, I forgot about being able to program the IA key. However, the car still does not "know" which driver is unlocking the car (for purposes of moving the seat) unless you physically press the unlock button on the IA key (and have programmed the key fob beforehand). Unlocking the door by sticking your hand behind the handle with the key in your pocket will not move the seat.
