We just noticed on our 2020 Chevy equinox that the lift gate does not lock
when we lock the car....all doors are locked, however, the lift gate still opens.  
How do we get it to lock?

Thanks. I was hoping not to have to take it, but it appears inevitable


I have the same problem with my 2020 Chevrolet Equinox. We just discovered this tonight. Second issue and have only had for a month and a half. Contacting the dealership on tomorrow.

It's your proximity keys. Your keys must be at least 20 ft away from the vehicle. If you lock your doors, then walk to the back with y our keys on you, the hatch won't lock. It's to allow the use of the foot opener. To test this, lock the vehicle and leave your keys inside. Then go check your hatch. It should be locked.

When leave the car, walk about 20 feet than hit the lock button twice. The lift gate will lock. When u return to your car and get close to the car it will automatically unlock the lift gate. It all has too do with how close your fob is too the vehicle. It took me 4 days to figure this out. Should not be this hard. Trust me it works
