Question about 2007 Kia Sedona 3.8
When I press the button nothing happens,Have to open door manually
Automatic sliding doors use optical or motion detection sensors to activate their motorized opening and closing functions. These sensors are mounted over the automatic door. The sensors use either infrared or microwave technology to observe motion.------------------------------------------------------------------------------

i just had to have this fixed on my 07 sedona on the bottom arm for the doors there are litle lock solinoids that go bad i would take it to a dealer to have it checked for the switch you can turn the power off to the doors and open them manualy but they are hard to open because you are pulling the cable instead of the motor doing it and this will not hurt the doors

it is probably the motor inside or the wired sliding pulleys and broken off. You have to strip the door.

So, you get out your remote control to your garage door opener and, then get your owners manual to your new car. You need to follow the instructions from the manufacturer to be able to program the remote control to the car.
Ok, you have followed the instructions from the car manufacturer and you press the button for the garage door to go up.......and nothing happens. So, then you think you have missed a step on the programing. Well, what most instruction manuals leave out is the step from programing the car/truck/van to the garage door machine itself. On the back side of your garage door opener is a panel called the logic board. The logic board is the computer or brain of the machine. Most new garage door openers now are a mulit-code machine. By that, i mean it uses several signals each time you press the button on your remote control. This is for security, so your code can't be stolen by a code-grabber.
Now, comes the step of programing the vehicle to your garage door opener. Once you have followed the instructions of programing your vehicle, you now have to "teach" the car to the garage door opener. You will need some help doing this. You will have to get someone to press the button in your vehicle and hold it down, while someone else has to press the learn button on the back your your garage door opener mounted on the ceiling. The learn button on the back of your machine will be square if using a liftmaster machine. Craftsman, Liftmaster, Chamberlain are all the same. Their learn buttons are square, and usually are yellow, red/orange, or purple. If using a Genie, it has a button that says "learn button".
The person pushing the button on the machine will only have to push and release the learn button. DO NOT hold this button down. If you do, it erases all of the programing in the machine, and you have to re-program all the remote controls that you have. You will have to read my other hub to find out how to do that. You will probably say a few words you shouldn't either. :-) Programing the vehicle to the machine only takes a second, and when the machine accepts the code, the light bulb on the machine should flash for a brief moment, and you should hear audible click. Yep, it's that easy! I dont know why the auto makers leave that step out. Anyway, i hope this helps, and if you have any questions.. leave them in my comments and i will try to walk you through it. See the photo above and you will see the typical logic board...the square red/orange learn button is easy to see. Just remember to press and release
