Obstacle Detection Features

A warning chime will sound and the liftgate will automatically reverse direction to the full closed or open position if an obstacle is encountered during a power open or close cycle. After removing the obstacle the liftgate will resume normal operation.

If more obstacles are encountered on the same power cycle, the power function deactivates, and the liftgate must be opened or closed manually.

A message displays on the Driver Information Center (DIC) to indicate that the liftgate is open. See Driver Information Center (DIC) (Without DIC Buttons) on page 5‑30 or Driver Information Center (DIC) (With DIC Buttons) on page 5‑25.

After removing the obstacles, manually open the liftgate fully or close and latch the liftgate.

The liftgate will resume normal power operation.

The vehicle has pinch sensors located on the side edges of the liftgate. If an object is caught between the liftgate and the body of the vehicle and presses against a sensor, the liftgate will reverse direction and open fully. The liftgate will remain open until it is activated again or closed manually. Do not force the liftgate open or closed during a power cycle.
