Power-Presenting Door Handles – Quick Start

Available Power-Presenting Door Handles may enable one side of the door handle to pivot outward automatically as you approach. Grabbing onto the handle may unlock the vehicle under certain circumstances.

To open the door with the pivoting handles extended outward:

  1. Grab the extended end of the door handle.
  2. Pull the door open.

 

To open the door if the pivoting handles have not extended outward (and the vehicle is already unlocked or you have the key fob or a mobile phone enabled with Digital Key in range):

  1. Push inward on the end of the handle that normally extends outward.
    - This action triggers all the door handles to extend outward at the same time.
  2. Grab the extended end of the door handle.
  3. Pull the door open.

 

The door handles will pivot outward under these circumstances:

  • You unlock your vehicle
  • You open or close any door
  • With Vehicle Locator Lights enabled, you approach within approximately 10 feet (3-4 meters) of your vehicle, with your key fob or a mobile phone enabled with Digital Key in range
  • You stop and put the vehicle in PARK. (This happens only if Automatic Door Unlock is enabled in Settings)

 

The door handles will retract to their original position (flush with the door) under these circumstances:

  • You lock your door with either the key fob button, your mobile phone, the interior door lock switch or through passive locking
  • There has been no door activity for approximately 5 minutes
  • You shift out of PARK and begin driving

 

Passive Locking/Unlocking the vehicle using the driver or front-passenger door handles:

  1. Touch the small square at the front end of the driver or front-passenger door handle to lock.
  2. Grip the handle of the driver or front-passenger door handle to unlock. A sensor will detect your hand wrapped around the handle. It will then unlock the door if the key fob or a mobile phone enabled with Digital Key is in range.

 

Door handles that are extended outward do not necessarily mean the vehicle is unlocked. Upon your approach, the handles may extend outward, but you will still have to unlock the vehicle either by using your key fob or by touching the rear half of the handle surface of the driver or front-passenger door handle.

 

Note: The small square sensor that you touch to lock the vehicle is only on the driver and front-passenger door handles.
