Will Rear Hatch Sensor Work With Trailer Hitch Installed on 2018 Nissan Rogue  


You seem to indicate that the rear hatch sensor will still work on 2017 Rogue. Will it STILL WORK on 2018 rogue? Is there any tampering of the sensor necessary?


Expert Reply:

The rear hatch sensors will still be functional with the Trailer Hitch Receiver # E98846 installed on your 2018 Nissan Rogue. You will need to kick your foot to the sides of the receiver to activate the sensors but there is no tampering of the sensor necessary.

I have added a link to an install of this hitch for you to check out as well as a photo showing what it will look like when installed on your '18 Rogue.

I don't have any good recommendations for where you are in Florida, however any local mechanic with a good reputation will be able to handle this install without issue. Print off the install manual we have attached on the product page and bring it up with you - this should help you get an accurate estimate before dropping off the keys.
