Selector lever position P must be engaged for touchless opening of the tailgate.

If the vehicle key is in the sensor area, the tailgate may open or close inadvertently if you unintentionally move your foot or if a foot movement is detected.

The sensor has an approximate range of 5 ft/1.50 m extending from the rear of the vehicle.

If the tailgate is opened with no-touch activation, locked doors are not unlocked.

You can configure if only the upper tailgate will open or if the upper and lower tailgate opens.

When closing, the upper and lower tailgate will always be closed.

Contactless opening and closing of the tailgate must be activated in the settings.
