Volvo XC90: Key, locks and alarm / Operating the tailgate with a foot movement

(Option/accessory)

To make it easier to operate the tailgate when your hands are full, it can be opened and closed by moving your foot in a forward kicking motion under the rear bumper.

Volvo XC90. Operating the tailgate with a foot movement

The sensor is located to the left of center under the rear bumper1.

One of the vehicle's remote keys must be within range behind the vehicle, approx. 1 meter (3 feet), for opening and closing to be possible. This applies even if the vehicle is unlocked in order to prevent the trunk lid from inadvertently opening e.g. at a car wash.

Foot movement operation

Volvo XC90. Operating the tailgate with a foot movement

Kicking motion within the sensor's activation area.

  • Make one forward kicking motion with your foot under the left section of the rear bumper. Take a step back. Do not touch the bumper.
    • A brief audible signal will be heard when opening or closing is activated - the tailgate will open/close.

If several opening attempts have been made without the remote key in range behind the vehicle, foot movement operation will not be available for a short period of time.

Do not keep your foot under the vehicle in a kicking motion. This may prevent activation.

Interrupting opening or closing with a foot movement

  • Make one forward kicking motion while the tailgate is opening or closing to stop its movement.

The remote key does not need to be within range of the vehicle to interrupt opening or closing of the tailgate.

If the tailgate stops near the closed position, it will open the next time it is activated.

NOTE

There is a risk of reduced or lost function if there are large amounts of snow, ice, dirt, etc. on the rear bumper. Make sure to keep the bumper clean.

NOTE

Please note that the system could be inadvertently activated in a car wash or similar if the remote key is within range.

Vehicle with skid plate accessory*

If the vehicle is equipped with skid plate, the sensor is located towards the left corner of the bumper.
