Driving with long item and open tailgate

1678 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Jay
I have a Hybid SEL and recently carried an oversize item that kept me from latching the rear tailgate. On the short drive, the rear hatch open alarm would sound every time I came to a stop. I could not find a way to acknowledge the alarm or disable it for the drive.

Does anyone know how to stop the alarm from sounding?

Yes. Close the liftgate.

Always keep the liftgate completely
closed while the vehicle is in motion. If
it is left open or ajar, poisonous exhaust
gases containing carbon monoxide
(CO) may enter the vehicle and serious
illness or death may result.
