Kick Sensor - Try this.
There is an ultrasonic sensor on each side of the rear bumper that for me seems to trigger the rear liftgate.
So it's really looking at your shin, and if you kick with your right leg, you need to stand is a different position depending on which side of the car you are on.
I could not figure out why it would work for on the driver's side, but not the passenger side. And I'm guessing that if disable proximity sensing, that might disable it, but I have not tried that.
See what results you get when you aim at this sensor:
Jaguar i-Pace FE Photon Red 20" wheels, "Leaper"
Two Chevrolet Volts in service
24.2 kW x 480v 3ph solar array self-installed.
