Programming Your Mazda CX-5 or CX-9 Power Liftgate Height
Many trims of the newer CX-5 and CX-9 models have a power liftgate, maybe even a hands-free powerlift gate. If you have one of the former, however, then you’ll need to be able to reach the button to use the power closing feature. If the liftgate extends too high, then this process makes a convenience feature inconvenient. But did you know that you can change the height to which your CX-5 or CX-9 liftgate opens?
Here’s how to set a custom height for the power liftgate on your Mazda CX-5 or CX-9.
Programming the Height on a Mazda Liftgate
Reprogramming the height of your Mazda CX-5 or CX-9 liftgate is actually really easy. It’s just a thing that isn’t necessarily obvious.
- Press the liftgate button to open your liftgate
- Wait for it to open all the way and stop moving
- Manually move the liftgate to the desired height you’d like it to stop at
- Press and hold the liftgate button until it beeps
- Liftgate is now programmed to stop at the desired height
After you’ve finished this process, close the liftgate via its corresponding button. To verify that the process worked correctly, simply press the liftgate button to reopen the rear hatch. If it hasn’t worked, repeat these steps.
