3 Easy Steps to Use the Tailgate Kick Sensor

February 20th, 2020 by

Technology continues to make strides in all fields of manufacturing and that includes the automobile industry. With features like smart keys and the implementation of sensors, cars have reached new heights in terms of convenience and luxury. One such feature is found in Lexus vehicles. The Tailgate Kick Sensor is a feature that allows the driver or anyone holding the key to open the trunk door with just a wave of the foot. Here are 3 easy steps to use the Tailgate Kick Sensor.

Lexus has created a very convenient and simple way for the driver to open the trunk of his/her Lexus when his/her hands are too full, or otherwise occupied. The first step to using Lexus’s Tailgate Kick Sensor is to make sure that you have the key fob within the range necessary to open the car’s trunk. Whether it’s in your pocket or in your hand, the keyless entry device needs to be in reach of the car’s sensor. The benefit of the Tailgate Kick Sensor, though, is that you do not have to reach in your pocket to take out the key fob.

The next step is the easiest. After making sure you have the key on you, all you have to do is simply place one of your feet directly under the vehicle where the sensor lies. Make sure not to touch the vehicle and the car’s sensor will detect your movement, along with the key fob. After detecting both, the trunk door will automatically open for you.

The last step to using the Tailgate Kick Sensor is to simply step away from the door. Be careful of the trunk door opening when you are close to it. Be sure to keep your limbs and your head far enough away to prevent injury. Also, be wary of anyone else that may be around, especially children who may not be paying attention. If you wish to close the trunk door, simply repeat the previous step and place your foot under the sensor of the car. But it’s as simple as that.

The Tailgate Kick Sensor truly elevates convenience with the integration of new, modern technology. This is just one of the features that Lexus has to offer in its line of models.
