Post trunk button not working

Hey guys,

I was wondering if any of you have or had similar issue...

Out of the blue, yesterday, the button beside the rear view camera to open the trunk sopped working.... not completely though... let me explain...
Prior to yesterday when pressed, the button would unlock and fully open the trunk or back door or whatever it is called in PF
Now, it only unlocks the trunk but does not open it... It has to be done manually.
Same thing with the button that's mounted on the back door trim

When I use the remote or the button inside the car below the steering wheel, all works the way it should.

I am due for service in the next couple of weeks, so if I don't find the solution, I will ask service guys to fix it.
I was just wondering if anyone had similar issue.

This post might provide some insight:

It might be a calibration issue as suggested. Definitely bring it into your dealer for inspection. It's under warranty.

Thanks for the link... I will try to see if the calibration helps...
It is pretty odd though that one day it was working fine and the next not at all

Electronic gremlins. I get them with my Bimmer all the time.

I bet Bavarian-engineered gremlins are more persistent and thorough then the garden variety kind.

So there is a bank of buttons on the dash by the drivers left knee. One of those buttons is Power Door On/Off. With the button set to the off position the rear door behaves exactly as you have described. Set it to on and it will go back to "normal" behavior. It can be easy to accidentally hit this button when getting in and out of the vehicle.

regarding the bank of buttons by the drivers left knee. Will all Pathfinders 2013+ have these even SV models?

I cant find the button to open the trunk from the driver position...Unless there isnt one.

That button is available only if you have power liftgate, which I don't believe the SV has.
