When temps are about 20 degrees or less, and we try to release the
tailgate, the little button inside the "handle" opening does not want
to activate the electric latch. Or the latch itself is "sticking". It
seems if we keep our fingers on the switch and "warm it up", then the
If temps are higher, no problem opening tailgate immediately.
There is no external key hole on this model, or dashboard switch.
Owner's manual has a procedure to release the lock from inside, but it
involves crawling into the cargo area, opening a tiny hatch, and
pushing a little lever you can hardly see. Testing this method, if
needed, has been unsuccessful. (And what if cargo area is full ? )
Anybody else have this problem, or a better alternate release method ?
