Couple of things to keep in mind:
The doors must be unlocked for the dash switch to open the rear gate.
If the key is in the ignition and in the "on" or "acc" position, nothing will open the rear gate. Dash switch, remote, or exterior button. Likely a safety to prevent it from being opened accidentally while driving, would be nice if it would open when in Park... sometimes want to keep the engine and AC running and just have a quick open/close for a passenger.
If you get out of the car and lock the doors, then open the gate with the remote, this action UNLOCKS ALL of the doors.
The doors do not automatically relock when tou close the gate.
