Operating the tailgate with foot movement*
If the car is equipped with keyless locking and unlocking* then you can unlock the tailgate with a foot movement.
The function with both opening and closing of the tailgate is also available when the car is equipped with power operated tailgate*.
The foot-operated tailgate function is available in two versions:
- Opening and closing with foot movement
- Only unlocking with foot movement (lift up the tailgate manually to open it)
Note that the function for opening and closing with foot movement requires power operated tailgate*.
One of the car's remote control keys must be within range behind the car, approx. 1 metre (3 feet), for opening and closing to be possible. This also applies to an already unlocked car in order to avoid accidental opening e.g. in a car wash.
Opening and closing with foot movement
If several kicking motions take place without an approved remote control key being located behind the car, opening will not be possible until after a certain delay.
Do not leave your foot positioned under the car during the kicking motion. This could cause activation to fail.
Cancelling opening or closing with foot movement
The remote control key does not have to be in the vicinity of the car to cancel opening or closing of the tailgate.
If the tailgate is stopped close to closed position, the next activation will open the tailgate.
Cars with the skid plate* accessory
If the car is equipped with skid plate the sensor is located out on the left-hand corner of the bumper.
To activate opening or closing with a foot movement on a car equipped with skid plate, the kicking motion is made from the side of the car. One of the car's remote control keys must be within range (approx. 1 metre (3 feet)) for opening and closing to be possible.
