Manual Operation of Power Liftgate

Cadillac SRX / Cadillac SRX Owners Manual / Keys, Doors, and Windows / Doors / Manual Operation of Power Liftgate

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

With the power liftgate disabled and all of the doors unlocked, the liftgate can be manually opened and closed. The effort required to operate a power liftgate is greater than the effort required to operate a non-power liftgate.

To open the liftgate, press the touch pad on the handle on the outside of the liftgate, and lift the gate open.

To close the liftgate, use the pull cup to lower the liftgate and close.

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 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.
