How to Manually Unlock a Nissan Murano Liftgate

by Leonardo R. Grabkowski

The liftgate on the Nissan Murano is normally unlocked by pushing the "Unlock" button twice on either your keyless remote or your driver-side door panel switch. The liftgate does not have its own door lock cylinder for you to insert a key into. However, when the battery is dead in the vehicle, the automatic method of unlocking the liftgate will not work. Fortunately, Nissan provides an alternate procedure that allows you to manually unlock the liftgate.

Grab your key and approach the Nissan Murano's driver-side door.

Insert the key into the key cylinder on the driver-side door handle.

Turn the key to the right (toward the lift gate) twice quickly. This manually unlocks the liftgate. Move in front of the liftgate and open it using the handle.
