    Problem with liftgate button on RKE

    Has anyone had problems with opening the power liftgate from the RKE transmitter? Locking/unlocking works great, even from distance but I'm having a hard time with the power liftgate. Most of the times it does not respond when I push the button on the RKE.

    You do need to hold the button down for a couple seconds. It doesn't respond instantly like the lock/unlock buttons.

    Hold button down, your taillights will blink three times before it opens...if you are sitting in the car the car will chime three times...

    True, but if you hold the '07 RKE button down too long it will possibly open and then reverse or do nothing at all. The bulletin states about 1 second and if too long it thinks you have pressed twice. My experience with the remote operation of the tailgate is a mixed bag. Think this a problem only on the '07 model SRX, Acadia, & Saturn Outlook.
