Lift gate will only unlock using key

Recommended Posts

Hello, hoping someone can tell me if this is normal or not! I just got a '19 TC wagon, really liking it so far!

 

The rear lift gate will not unlock using the power locks on the driver or passenger doors. only the 4 doors will lock/unlock, but not the hatch. There is no trunk release that I can see inside the car? When I unlock the hatch with the keyfob, I can relock the hatch using the interior lock switches.

 

Am i missing something?

 

Thanks,

Ted

The rear lift gate on my 2016 unlocks with the door buttons.

so i messed around with it today and discovered that if i press the unlock button on the drivers door twice quickly, it will unlock the hatch. would appreciate any 2019 owners confirming this is the normal behavior.

 

Thanks,

Ted

Check the owners manual. Single and double press options can be user configured for the key fob. This may be configurable in the 2019s.

On my 2016 a single press of the key fob unlocks the drivers door, a double click unlocks all doors including the hatch.  My key fob also has a separate button for the rear lift gate which unlocks just the rear lift gate.  As Don said I believe it can be changed.

of course, RTFM!! I'll look into that, thank you!! I was a bit salty my key doesnt have the trunk release. It just has lock/unlock (behaves how you described) and a lock button for the rear sliding doors?? i have no idea what the intended use is..
