WARNING
● Make sure that all passengers have their hands, etc., inside the vehicle before closing the liftgate.

NOTE:
To open, close or reverse the power liftgate, the shift selector must be in P (Park).

Also, the power liftgate will not operate if battery voltage is low.

Power Open:

The power liftgate automatically moves from the fully closed position to the fully open position in approximately 5 – 8 seconds. The power open feature can be activated by the switch on the keyfob, the instrument panel switch and the liftgate request switch. The hazard lights flash and a chime sounds to indicate the power open sequence has been started.

● The liftgate can be opened by the instrument panel switch, liftgate request switch and the keyfob even if the vehicle is locked. The liftgate will individually unlock and open.

Once the liftgate is closed, its lock will align to the vehicle’s lock or unlock status.
● The keyfob button must be held for 0.5 second before the liftgate opens.
● The liftgate must be unlocked to open it with the liftgate opener switch A .

A warning chime will sound if the shift selector is moved out of P (Park) during a power open operation.

Power Close:

The power liftgate automatically moves from the fully open position to the secondary position.

When the liftgate reaches the secondary position, the cinching motor engages and pulls the liftgate to its primary latch position. Power close takes approximately 7 – 10 seconds. The power close feature can be activated by the switch on the keyfob, the instrument panel and the liftgate opener switch A . The hazard lights flash and a chime sounds to indicate the power close sequence has been started.

● If the liftgate opener switch A is activated while the cinching motor is engaged, the cinching motor will disengage and release the latch.
● The keyfob button must be held for 0.5 second before the liftgate closes.
● The switch on the liftgate can only be used to close the liftgate if the power liftgate main switch is in the ON position.

Reverse:

The power liftgate will reverse direction immediately during power open or power close if the keyfob, instrument panel or liftgate switch is pushed or if the liftgate opener switch A is pushed. A chime will sound to announce the reversal.

Auto Reverse:

If an obstacle is detected during power open or power close, a warning chime will sound and the liftgate will reverse direction and return to the full open or full close position. If a second obstacle is detected, the liftgate motion will stop and the liftgate will enter manual mode.

A pinch strip is mounted on each side of the liftgate. If an obstacle is detected by a pinch strip during power close, the liftgate will reverse direction and return to the full open position.

NOTE:
If the pinch strip is damaged or removed, the power close function will not operate.

WARNING
There are some small distances immediately before the closed position which cannot be detected. Make sure that all passengers have their hands, etc., inside the vehicle before closing the liftgate.

Manual Mode:

Manual Mode:

If power operation is not available, the liftgate may be operated manually. Power operation may not be available if the power liftgate main switch is in the ON position, if multiple obstacles have been detected in a single power cycle, or if battery voltage is low.
