Anyone know how to get the remote door/boot opener working again??
Tried new batteries.
Tried suggested sequence of unlock door - press remote
to reactivate - still will not work.
Can't see red light in remote hand unit when button pushed - should you be able to see this?
Very much appreciated to someone who knows the secrete.
Thanks again Del
