No, you have to use your hand to pop the hatch open. The keyfob just unlocks it.ZBoy said:Is there ANY way to open the hatch from the keyfob on the Murano S?
It reallllly annoys me that we have to use the little button underneath to open the hatch. Carrying groceries or what not... and having to set down whatever to open it.. well.. sucks!
Same thing on all the MOs. The hatch is more of a 5th door than a "trunk lid". Your doors don't pop open when you push the button on the FOB, do they?ZBoy said:
How about the SLs and SEs? This true with those too? Is it just a keyfob issue or was Nissan just that dumb?
True but my doors also dont open up, and they arent used for cargo...special-k said:

What the heck a Lexus?Corin said:Remember, it's a nissan. Not a lexus. Very few SUVs actually have the ability to OPEN the rear hatch with the key fob, and it's usually an added option that you have to pay for. No, the MO does not have that option. It unlocks with the key fob, does not open with the key fob.
Some people appear to be a little too spoiled these days...
I never noticed that... but it is true my old 4runner didnt open with the keyfob.TheGymKid said:I didn't like the fact the glass didn't go down either when I bought it... after test driving the 4runner where it did. At this point, I haven't thought of it since then. To many other great options for me to complain about the ones it didn't have. By the way, one less thing for me to have to worry about breaking in 10 years from now. (Motor on the rear window).
Also, Nissan calls it a LIFTGATE... not a hatch or trunk. Anyone else ever catch that one?
I dont want a fully motorized hatch... just one that opens when I press a button.Eric L. said:The automatic opening hatches all eventually fail, leaving you with a heavy rear door that can't support itself.
Ah now that is a good point. On my Maxima, the trunk would also open (but not go up) with the keyfob. Maybe Nissan was too cheap to supply the Murano with the keyfob with the trunk button on it.ZBoy said:

right now, if you press the black button, it opens!
And that little black button on the 05s requires no force...

Nope, the Z has the same rubber button as the 05 MOs do.Eric L. said:The 350Z probably has a remote trunk open button in the cabin somewhere (maybe on the door, like my Maxima). The Murano has no such remote switch, so no key fob no matter how its programmed will open the rear hatch.
But even so, you'd still have to lift the hatch open. Doesn't really seem to solve your problem, does it? I mean, the only place to grab the hatch is in the handle area anyway, and on the 05 at least the release button is right there at the fingertips, so I fail to see the benefit of a remote release.ZBoy said:
Also, on the 05s its not a manual lever, its an electronic switch. If the keyfob reciever could be programmed to trigger that when a certain button is pushed it should open by itself (not close though, but thats cool).
zebelkhan said:Wait a minute! If you have so many things in your hand that you cannot press a button and open the gate, will you not have the same problem pushing the button on the key fob?
Of course, ONLY being able to use the fob WOULD suck!pcs15394 said:This is funny, I had a vehicle where the rear liftgate would only open with the fob, there was no other means of opening other than from the inside release in the center stack area. Lots of owners complained that there was no rear latch handle. Just funny going from one extreme to the next. Having had a vehicle where I needed the fob to open it all the time to now having one where the fob is not absolutely necessary unless locked, I have to say I don't miss the fob route. It was a real pain digging around for the fob to get the rear "liftgate" open while carrying items from the house to the car. Of course having both options would be great.
