I had a shop remove the factory hitch on my Woodland, which was blocking the sensors. The kick activation for the rear hatch doesn’t work. Is there a setting somewhere that I need to change? Has anyone else had this issue?

I believe having the factory hitch installed deletes the kick sensor.

I have a Woodland too. Why did you remove the hitch, and did you replace it with anything else? I'm thinking of moving to a 2 inch hitch.

We have an extremely steep driveway and it has been gouging out concrete. We don’t plan on using it any time soon.

Looks like it's on / enabled to me
From further research, the sensor is disabled at the factory when they install the hitch. I'm going to call the techs and see if this is just a setting that can be turned on or if the sensors are installed at all.

Thought I read that Sienna owners that had after market hitches installed had the sensor moved to one side by which ever company they used.

Hopefully something simple as that for you, i.e. Toyota did install sensor but de-activated so need to move to one side.

any update on this? I’m picking up my Woodland tomorrow and thinking of swapping out the factory hitch for the Torklift or similar aftermarket for the extra clearance and looks. And was wondering if I’d be able to then make the kick sensor work if they didn’t take it out at the factory.

From what I have seen, the kick sensor is not installed on the Woodland.
