Chevrolet Silverado: Tailgate / Power Tailgate

Chevrolet Silverado 2019-2024 Owners Manual / Keys, Doors, and Windows / Doors / Tailgate / Power Tailgate

Warning

Make sure there is no one in the way of the power tailgate as it is opening and closing, and keep hands away from the tailgate hinges when in use. You or others could be injured if caught in the path of the power tailgate or tailgate hinges.

Caution

To avoid damage to the tailgate, make sure the area behind the tailgate is clear before opening it.

If equipped with a power open/close tailgate, the tailgate can be opened or closed in several ways. To open the tailgate, do one of the following:

  • Press twice quickly on the RKE transmitter until the tailgate moves. See Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) System Operation (Key Access) or Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) System Operation (Keyless Access). If equipped with Keyless Access, a locked tailgate can be opened if the RKE transmitter is within 1 m (3 ft).

  • Press on the center stack.

  • Press the touch pad on the tailgate handle after unlocking all doors.

To close the tailgate, do one of the following:

  • Press on the RKE transmitter once, then quickly press and hold until the tailgate completely closes. If is released prior to it being fully closed, the tailgate will reopen.
  • Press and hold on the center stack until the tailgate is fully closed. If is released prior to the tailgate being fully closed, it will reopen. A chime will sound when the tailgate is fully closed.
  • Press the touch pad on the tailgate handle.

A chime sounds and the taillamps flash during the closing operation. If the warning chime is not functioning, the tailgate will not power close. Power opening is still enabled. See your dealer for service.

The power tailgate may be temporarily disabled after repeated power cycling over a short period of time. If this occurs, the tailgate can still be operated manually.

The vehicle must be in P (Park) to operate the power tailgate. If the vehicle is shifted out of P (Park) while the power function is in progress, the tailgate will continue to completion. If the vehicle is accelerated while the tailgate is still closing, the tailgate may stop and reverse direction. Make sure the tailgate is closed and latched before driving.

Lift-to-Close Operation

To close the tailgate using the lift-to-close feature, lift the tailgate from the full-open position to at least 10 cm (4 in) and hold it momentarily. Then, the tailgate will start closing automatically. If the tailgate is lifted and close, then it will not close automatically.

Obstacle Detection

If the tailgate encounters an obstacle during a power open cycle, it will stop on the obstacle. After removing the obstruction, the tailgate can be allowed to open.

If the tailgate encounters an obstacle during the closing cycle, it will stop and reverse to full open.

If the tailgate encounters multiple obstacles, the power function will deactivate. After removing the obstructions, manually close the tailgate to resume normal power operation.

Manual Operation

The tailgate can be manually closed from the full-open position when the tailgate is lifted in a continuous motion. If the tailgate motion is stopped between the full-open and half-closed positions, the lift-to-close feature can engage and power close the tailgate. If the touch pad is pressed during power operation, the tailgate will stop and allow manual operation. The tailgate must be held after stopping, or it will continue to open.
