Customer Question
My 2015 SRX power...

My 2015 SRX power liftgate does not open unless ignition is off? Difficult at airport curbsides!

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery lately?

No, battery is charging and putting out approx 14 amps

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your SRX yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing, just checked fuses.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The haptic seat sensor (lane departure warning) works sporatically although the beep function works fine. I bought the vehicle used recently with low miles. <16k.
