Setting the Power Liftgate Intermediate Mode

Cadillac CTS / Cadillac CTS Owners Manual / Keys, Doors, and Windows / Doors / Liftgate / Setting the Power Liftgate Intermediate Mode

To change the liftgate stop position:

1. Turn the liftgate switch to either the MAX, or the ¾ mode position and power open the liftgate.

2. Stop the liftgate movement at the desired height by pressing any button that operates the power liftgate, or the touch pad.

Manually adjust the liftgate position if required.

3. Press and hold the button on the liftgate adjacent to the latch until the turn signals flash and a beep sounds to indicate that the new setting is recorded.

When power opened with the ¾ mode selected, the liftgate stops at the new set position.

If an audible and visual response is not received when setting the intermediate stop position, the liftgate height is below the ¾ open height minimum, approximately 1.52m(5 ft) at the edge of the liftgate.
