power seat moved by itself while i was driving on 2008 Mercury Mountaineer

I was driving last nite and was coming to a light with a car in front of me so I was applying brake, all of a sudden the interior dome light came on and my driver seat moved all the way back by itself. Was so dangerous as I could hardly reach the brake almost hit the car in front of me. It was almost like my system thought that I had parked the car and turned the car off but I was driving..HElp! What causes this

Sounds like your Seat Memory Computer went a little crazy, better go to a shop and have this checked out before you DO have an accident. http://repairpal.com/directory?address=08872&car_brand_names=Mercury

how do i turn the memory recall off? every time i hit the unlock button it reverts back to seat one and it never did this before until the dealer replaced the battery in my '07 mountaineer?
