Power Liftgate

border=0>

On vehicles with a power liftgate, the switch is on the driver door.

The vehicle must be in P (Park) to use the power feature.

The taillamps flash when the power liftgate moves.

WARNING
You or others could be injured if caught in the path of the power liftgate. Make sure there is no one in the way of the liftgate as it is opening and closing.

Choose the power liftgate mode by turning the dial on the switch until the indicator lines up with the desired position.

The three modes are:

MAX: The liftgate opens to the full open height.

3/4: The liftgate opens to a reduced height that can be set by the vehicle operator in a range of approximately three—quarters open to full open.

Use this setting to prevent the liftgate from opening into overhead obstructions such as a garage door or roof mounted cargo during power operation. The liftgate can still be manually opened all the way.

OFF: The liftgate only operates manually in this position.

Manual operation of a liftgate that also has power operation requires more effort than with a standard manual liftgate.

In either the MAX or the 3/4 mode, the liftgate can be power opened and closed by:

Pressing any liftgate button, or the touch pad switch while the liftgate is moving, stops it. Pressing the button or RKE switch again reverses the direction. There is a minimum distance that the power liftgate must already be open for the system to hold it open. If movement is stopped below that minimum, the liftgate closes.

Do not force the liftgate open or closed during a power cycle.

The power liftgate may be temporarily disabled under extreme temperatures or low battery conditions. If this occurs, the liftgate can still be operated manually.

If you shift the transmission out of P (Park) while the power function is in progress, the liftgate power function will continue to completion.

If you shift the transmission out of P (Park) and accelerate before the power liftgate latch is closed, the liftgate may reverse to the open position. Cargo could fall out of the vehicle. Always make sure the power liftgate is closed and latched before you drive away.

If you power open the liftgate and the liftgate support struts have lost pressure, the turn signals flash and a chime sounds. The liftgate stays open temporarily, then slowly closes. See your dealer for service before using the liftgate.
