I just packed my 2012 QX56 and closed the lift gate

Customer Question
Hi there. I just...

Hi there. I just packed my 2012 QX56 and closed the lift gate manually. Now the automatic buttons won't open the lift gate. Is there a way to reset so the automatic opener works? Thanks!

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your QX56 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. I haven't done anything except press the buttons (on the remote and inside the car).

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

That's it!

It was working fine, but packed the car full for the beach and closed manually. Now there's nothing. There must be a way to reset somehow?
Infiniti Mechanic: 3pac2222, ASE Certified Technician replied 4 months ago

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
