Manual Operation of Power Liftgate

To change the liftgate to manual operation, turn the mode selector switch to OFF.

With the power liftgate disabled and all of the doors unlocked, the liftgate can be manually opened and closed. Manual operation of a vehicle with a power liftgate requires more effort than a standard non-power liftgate.

To open the liftgate, press the touch pad on the handle on the outside of the liftgate and lift. To close the liftgate, use the pull cup. With the power liftgate disabled, the liftgate electric latch will still power latch once contact is made with the striker. Always close the liftgate before driving.

If the RKE button is pressed while power operation is disabled, the turn signals will flash and the liftgate will not move.

The liftgate has an electric latch.

If the battery is disconnected or has low voltage, the liftgate will not open. The liftgate will resume operation when the battery is reconnected and charged.
