OPENING AND CLOSING THE POWERED TRUNK

WARNING

Before operating the powered trunk, make sure that anyone in the vicinity does not have any body part in a position where it could be trapped. Note that the soft-close action does not incorporate object detection. Death or serious injury could occur, even with an object detection system.

While the trunk is open, the locking latch is exposed. Do not attempt to manually close the latch, as it may also automatically soft-close and trap items or body parts.

CAUTION

Make sure there is sufficient space above and at the rear of the vehicle, before operating the trunk. Insufficient opening space may result in damage to the vehicle.

CAUTION

Do not operate the trunk if a cycle rack is fitted to the trunk. Remove any cycles and/or racks before operating the trunk.

To open the powered trunk, press the interior release switch, or the smart key button. A second press during the opening stops movement. Press again to continue opening. To close the trunk when it is fully open, press the interior switch, the close switch on the inside of the trunk, or the smart key button.

When it reaches its lowest position, the trunk automatically soft-closes to the fully closed position.

If an object is detected that would interfere with the trunk closing, movement stops and then reverses to the fully open position, if able to do so. An audible warning is given to indicate a mislock. Remove any obstructions and press the switch again to close the trunk.

NOTES

If a valid smart key cannot be detected within 39 in (1 m) of the rear of the vehicle, an audible warning sounds to indicate a mislock and the trunk re-opens after approximately 3 seconds.

NOTES

If the smart key is inadvertently left inside the trunk and the vehicle is locked and the alarm set, an audible warning sounds to indicate a mislock and the trunk re-opens after approximately 3 seconds.

NOTES

Make sure the trunk is fully closed before leaving the vehicle unattended. Visible and audible warnings indicate if the vehicle is locked and the alarm armed. If there are no visible or audible warnings upon closing the trunk, the vehicle may be unprotected.
