Its in the owner manual. Its also slower than **** to recognize your foot even if you have the fob close enough to the car. It quicker to just hit the button.

Mine operates very nicely - very quick to sense. I can walk up and immediately swipe my foot and it opens right away. I've never had to wait to sense the key and it always works. I also have a Ford Explorer wit the same feature and it does not work nearly as well as the Volvo.

Mine works great. Stand within a foot of the car, just left of the license plate, then stick either foot straight under the bumper then move it back away from the bumper. Mine works every time and more reliable than other cars I’ve had with the same feature.

This feature works OK on my car. Takes a little practice to know where to hit the sweet spot of the sensor. I also like that you can do the reverse: close the tailgate the same way. Comes in handy when I have my arms full.

The important thing is to then take a step back because if you're too close it won't open; it doesn't want to hit you.
Whoa. This was an awesome tip. No wonder I always had some issues with it opening from time to time. Now, (most times) when I stand back, it opens. I wish this was explained better to me when I got this AMAZING vehicle.

One other thing about this tailgate - it opens WAY faster than most cars on the road. I appreciate this.

Thank you for posting this.

The owner's manual is stunningly incomplete in explaining so many things about this car. I wonder if it's the Chinese influence? I have bought many things from China, and the directions are illogical and incomplete too.
