It is possible to set the maximum height to which a powered upper tailgate will open. This is useful in parking areas with very low roofs, or just for ease of use.

  1. Open the upper tailgate to the position you want to set as the maximum height. Press either upper tailgate mounted button to stop movement, or position the upper tailgate manually.

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

  3. To set the opening height: Press and hold the tailgate close button, mounted on the upper tailgate, until you hear a chime.

  4. Press and release the tailgate close button to close the tailgate. Open the tailgate again to check the upper tailgate opens to programmed height. See OPENING AND CLOSING THE POWERED TAILGATE.


If, after performing part 3 of the process, the upper, or upper and lower tailgates close automatically, the required height has not been set. Repeat the process making sure that all of the steps are adhered to.

To reset the maximum opening height to full, repeat the process. Manually move the upper tailgate to the fully open position before pressing and holding the tailgate close button.

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

To reset maximum tailgate opening hight:

  1. Manually close the tailgate.

  2. Press a tailgate release button.

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

  4. Press and release the tailgate close button.

  5. Allow the tailgate to power close fully.

The tailgate's programmed position memory will now be restored.
