The hatch doesn't open and rise like some minivans. Pressing on the hatch open button just unlocks it, so you can open.I don't think that my remote is working. If I long press on the hatch open button, the turn signals flash after a few seconds but the hatch doesn't open.
Is that wrong?
P. S. Mine is a LE
NJ- that is what the remote button on the fob is for. Say you were inside the house, and wanted to let your kids get in the car without giving them the key-hit the remote. Or you wanted someone to retrieve something you left in the back, without walking back to car- the hatch remote. Or you didn't lock with the handle button, and now are away from car- use the remote to lock.. etc.I have no clue why that button is on the key fob. It serves no purpose unless you want someone else to open the hatch without the key fob in hand.
Maybe they set up the buttons that way for a future automatic opener.
I've been spoiled by auto opening hatch on my last 3 cars. :xThere is an automatic power liftgate available in some markets. You can buy it on AliExpress.com for about $400. They Key fob button will activate it to open and close and there is also a button on the dash next to the lane assist.
Info on last post is NOT accurate! All were actually from China. The Aliexpress price is the best, all products look identical.Actually this product is available from a US distributor. Natch it costs more than the one from China, but looks identical. I can't wait to see who is gonna be the 1st to order & install one of these and give their report :nerd:
I agree and this my biggest complaint about this vehicle. Seems so cheap to not have that convenience. Not to mention the car needs to be off to open hatch.OK, so the button is practically useless.
Every car, SUV or truck that I have owned in the past 10 or so years had that exact same button and it DID pop the hatch or trunk or rear door. It didn't open it, just popped the latch.
One other thing, there is no way to open the hatch on the NIRO from the drivers seat??? There isn't any button or switch or toggle etc. If you carry the keyfob in your pocket, you need to reach into your pocket to retrieve the remote to open the hatch. Not always easy.
Heck, my 1979 Dodge Colt had that feature and here we are almost 40 years later...
Oh well, thats not why I bought this car.
