GMC Terrain: Doors / Hands-Free Operation

The liftgate may be operated with a kicking motion under the rear bumper between the left exhaust pipe and the license plate.

The RKE transmitter must be within 1 m (3 ft) of the rear bumper to operate the power liftgate hands-free.

The hands-free feature will not work while the liftgate is moving. To stop the liftgate while in motion use one of the liftgate buttons.

The hands-free feature can be customized. See Vehicle Personalization. Choose from the following:

On-Open and Close : The kicking motion is activated to both open and close the liftgate.

On-Open Only : The kicking motion is activated to only open the liftgate.

Off : The feature is disabled.

Kick Motion

Caution

Attempting to move the liftgate too quickly and with excessive force may result in damage to the vehicle.

To operate, kick your foot straight up in one swift motion under the rear bumper between the left exhaust pipe and the license plate, then pull it back.

Caution

Splashing water may cause the liftgate to open. Keep the RKE transmitter away from the rear bumper detection area or turn the liftgate mode to OFF when cleaning or working near the rear bumper to avoid accidental opening.

  • Do not sweep your foot side to side.
  • Do not keep your foot under the bumper; the liftgate will not activate.
  • Do not touch the liftgate until it has stopped moving.
  • This feature may be temporarily disabled under some conditions. If the liftgate does not respond to the kick, open or close the liftgate by another method or start the vehicle. The feature will be re-enabled.

When closing the liftgate using this feature, there will be a short delay. The taillamps will flash and a chime will sound. Step away from the liftgate before it starts moving.
