#12 of 16 2012 Chevy Equinox Power Liftgate
Aug 16, 2012 (2:57 pm)
Bought a 2012 Chevy Equinox LTZ 2 days ago. Today, the FOB in my pocket opened the power liftgate. Problems is, the doors were locked. The owner's manual says you need to unlock the car before being able to open the gate however, in my case, I am repeatedly able to open the liftgate with my FOB when the doors are locked. Thoughts?

My wifes 2012 Equinox LT2 Power Lift Gate opens with doors locked. One thing i noticed was you have to hold that button for a couple seconds to open Lift Gate.

It may be a mistake in manual, or the wording may be for manually opening liftgate without fob. (I found my liftgate open once in parking lot with doors locked, darn fob in my pocket getting buttons pushed without my knowledge or desire)

Whoops forgot to mention I have the Terrain. I just checked it. Locked it hit the fob button and it lifted. Shut it, tried to manually lift, no go

I see in the manual that, as jgentsch mentioned, the unlock button should be pressed first before the liftgate button with the key fob. We'd be happy to ask our Technical Assistance Center for more details on the operation of this feature if we could have somebody send us the last 8 digits of your VIN and question to socialmediagm.com (needed for documentation purposes as the question is submitted electronically).
