Vehicle customization

Changing of the power back door opening angle (if equipped)

The opening angle setting can be changed through operation of either the power back door switch or the audio system screen.

However, if the engine switch is on and the power back door switch is used to change the opening angle setting, the changed opening angle will not be reflected on the audio system screen until the engine switch is turned off and then on again.

When customizing on the audio system screen

Stop the vehicle in a safe place, apply the parking brake, and shift the shift lever to p. Also, to prevent battery discharge, leave the engine running while customizing the features.


During customization

As the engine needs to be running during customization, ensure that the vehicle is parked in a place with adequate ventilation. In a closed area such as a garage, exhaust gases including harmful carbon monoxide (co) may collect and enter the vehicle. This may lead to death or a serious health hazard.



During customization

To prevent battery discharge, ensure that the engine is running while customizing features.
