Power Liftgate - If Equipped

The power liftgate may be opened by pushing the electronic liftgate release (refer to "Keyless Enter-N-Go" located in "Things To Know Before Starting") or by pushing the LIFTGATE button on the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter.

Push the LIFTGATE button on the RKE transmitter twice within five seconds to open the power liftgate. Once the liftgate is open, pushing the button twice within five seconds a second time will close the liftgate.

The power liftgate may also be opened or closed by pushing the LIFTGATE button located on the left side of the steering wheel on the instrument panel, or closed by pushing the LIFTGATE button located on left rear trim panel, near the liftgate opening. Push the LIFTGATE button located on left rear trim panel once will close the liftgate only. This button cannot be used to open the liftgate.

When the LIFTGATE button on the RKE transmitter is pushed two times, the turn signals will flash twice to signal that the liftgate is opening or closing (if Flash Lamps with Lock is enabled in the Uconnect settings), and the liftgate chime will be audible. Refer to Uconnect Settings in Understanding Your Instrument Panel" for further information.

NOTE:

  • In the event of a power malfunction to the liftgate, an emergency liftgate latch release can be used to open the liftgate. The emergency liftgate latch release can be accessed through a snap-in cover located on the liftgate trim panel.
  • If liftgate is left open for an extended period of time, the liftgate may need to be closed manually to reset power liftgate functionality.

WARNING!

During power operation, personal injury or cargo damage may occur. Ensure the liftgate travel path is clear. Make sure the liftgate is closed and latched before driving away.

NOTE:

  • The power liftgate buttons will not operate if the vehicle is in gear or the vehicle speed is above 0 mph (0 km/h).
  • The power liftgate will not operate in temperatures below −22F (−30C) or temperatures above 150F (65C). Be sure to remove any buildup of snow or ice from the liftgate before pushing any of the power liftgate switches.
  • If anything obstructs the power liftgate while it is closing or opening, the liftgate will automatically reverse to the closed or open position, provided it meets sufficient resistance.
  • There are also pinch sensors attached to the side of the liftgate. Light pressure anywhere along these strips will cause the liftgate to return to the open position.
  • The power liftgate must be in the full open position for rear liftgate close button on the left rear trim, near the liftgate opening to operate. If the liftgate is not fully open, push the Liftgate button on the Key Fob to fully open the liftgate and then push it again to close.
  • If the electronic liftgate release is pushed while the power liftgate is closing, the liftgate will reverse to the full open position.
  • If the electronic liftgate release is pushed while the power liftgate is opening, the liftgate motor will disengage to allow manual operation.
  • If the power liftgate encounters multiple obstructions within the same cycle, the system will automatically stop and the liftgate must be opened or closed manually.
  • If your liftgate is power closing and you put the vehicle in gear, the liftgate will continue to power close. However, vehicle movement may result in a detection of an obstruction.

WARNING!

  • Driving with the liftgate open can allow poisonous exhaust gases into your vehicle. You and your passengers could be injured by these fumes. Keep the liftgate closed when you are operating the vehicle.
  • If you are required to drive with the liftgate open, make sure that all windows are closed, and the climate control blower switch is set at high speed.

    Do not use the recirculation mode.
