1.) Ensure You Have Your Key FOB Within Range of the Vehicle

In order for the rear door to open, the keyless entry device must be within a range of the vehicle’s sensor. However, there’s no need to remove the FOB from your pocket or purse.


2.) Kick Your Foot Gently Under the Center of the Car

Place your foot directly under the sensor without touching the vehicle. The sensor will pick up on your movement and open the door by itself!


3.) Step Away From the Rear of the Vehicle

Remain cautious of the door opening in front of you. Keep your head and limbs far enough away from the vehicle to prevent injury during this process. Also, ensure that other passengers are clear of the door before attempting to open it.


4.) Repeat Step Two to Close the Door

When you’re ready to close the trunk, simply repeat step two by place your foot under the center of the car.
