Hello I just bought a 2012 MDX base package. It has a power liftgate with buttons in the driver side door and a button on the inside of the liftgate to close it. I’m wondering if there’s anyway to open the liftgate from outside the vehicle using power function. It seems that when I pull the button on the outside of the liftgate is just a manual open thing. Wasn’t sure if there was a way to change this to be power opening or if I could get a remote with a power open button so I can use the future from outside The vehicle.

Thank you!

Your FOB should have a tailgate button. Hold it down and the tailgate will open.

My fob just has door lock and unlock buttons =[
Interesting. I wonder if the FOBs you got were eBay replacements? The 2012 manual on owners.acura.com leads me to believe the power-tailgate-equipped MDX had FOBs with power tailgate buttons.



You may want to consider buying new FOBs on eBay so you can have the button:

My 11 has a button on the remotes for the lift gate, but it is also easy to open without power...just pull the lever and open, no worries..,
