TAILGATE OPENING HEIGHT

The maximum opening height for the tailgate can be set as required. Setting a maximum height is useful in parking areas with very low roofs, or just for ease of use.

To set the maximum opening height:

  1. Open the powered tailgate to the position required as the maximum height. Press any tailgate release button to stop movement at the required position. The final position can be achieved manually, if required.

  2. Make sure the tailgate is stationary for at least 3 seconds.

  3. Press and hold the tailgate close button for longer than 5 seconds, or until an audible confirmation is heard, to set the required opening height. Release the tailgate close button.

  4. Close the tailgate, then open again to check that it opens to the set height.

  5. The maximum opening height is now set.

NOTES

If, after performing part 3 of the process, the tailgate closes automatically, the required height has not been set. Repeat the process, making sure that all steps are adhered to. See OPENING AND CLOSING THE POWERED TAILGATE

To reset the maximum opening height, repeat the process, but when the tailgate reaches its current set height, manually move it to the fully open position before pressing and holding the tailgate close button. If the tailgate closes automatically, the required height has not been set. Repeat the process, making sure that all steps are adhered to.

The tailgate may lose its position memory if there are multiple object detections, or if the battery voltage is low. Powered operation may also be inhibited.

To reset the tailgate:

  1. Manually close the tailgate.

  2. Press the tailgate release button.

  3. Allow the tailgate to fully open or open to the previously set position.

  4. Press and release the tailgate release button.

  5. Allow the tailgate to power-close fully. The tailgate's programmed memory is restored.
