Liftgate

Warning

Exhaust gases can enter the vehicle if it is driven with the liftgate, hatch/trunk open, or with any objects that pass through the seal between the body and the hatch/trunk or liftgate. Engine exhaust contains carbon monoxide (CO) which cannot be seen or smelled. It can cause unconsciousness and even death.

If the vehicle must be driven with the liftgate or hatch/trunk open:

  • Close all of the windows.
  • Fully open the air outlets on or under the instrument panel.
  • Adjust the climate control system to a setting that brings in only outside air and set the fan speed to the highest setting. See “Climate Control Systems” in the Index.
  • If the vehicle is equipped with a power liftgate, disable the power liftgate function.

For more information about carbon monoxide, see Engine Exhaust.

Caution

To avoid damage to the liftgate or liftgate glass, make sure the area above and behind the liftgate is clear before opening it.

To open the liftgate, press Buick Encore. Doors on the power door lock switch or press Buick Encore. Doors on the RKE transmitter to unlock all doors. See Power Door Locks 0 15 and Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) System Operation.
