Chazzy J, Me too, on my Advance, I think I used the Kick Tailgate 1 or 2X . It doesn't respond too well. Actually, it is silly but, this is what the car makers "think" are Luxurious items that Americans require. If I have a cart full of Groceries (man, whatta an expense that is now), I just use my Key Fob or for fun, actually push the button on the tailgate . Which reminds me of one thing I am disapointed with compard to my 2019 MDX. The rear cargo cover which covers the "hidden" lower compartment (A sunken living Room), when raised, comes off very easily. In the 2019, it was attached with hinges (for the lack of a better description) that allowed the raised cover to stay in place in the semi or fully raised position. It was great for putting in groceries or such - that was nice feature Acura took away.Gotta love teething pains. We appreciate you taking the time to update the thread!
For what it’s worth, I’ve read plenty about how unreliable the kick sensor is on the liftgate. It’s actually like 1 of 3 accessories I didn’t put on my A-Spec. I had it on my 2020 CX-9, while it worked well, I think I used it functionally all of 5 times in 2 years. Every other time it was just me and my daughter playing with it because she thought it was neat.
