Power liftgate Non-Opening or Closing Conditions
Automatic stop and Reverse

If, during power opening or closing, the liftgate is blocked by an object or part of someone’s body, the power liftgate will detect the resistance and it will stop movement or move to the full open position to allow the object to be cleared.

However, if an object is thin or soft, or the liftgate is near the latched position, the automatic stop and reversal may not detect the resistance and the closing operation will continue. If the power liftgate is forced by a strong impact, the automatic stop and reversal may operate.

If the automatic stop and reverse feature operates more than twice during one opening or closing operation, the power liftgate may stop at that position.

If this occurs, close the liftgate manually and operate the liftgate automatically again.

WARNING

To prevent serious injury and damage take the following precautions when operating the power liftgate :

- Keep all faces, hands, arms, body parts and other objects away from the path of the power liftgate.
- Do not intentionally place any body parts or objects in the path of the power liftgate to make sure the automatic stop and reversal operates.
- Do not allow children to play with the power liftgate.
