My highlander 2008, the doors can be locked and open with key and remote but cannot open the trunk with key and remote


To make the rear door open, you have to hold the button for a while. If the battery is weak, that will drain the power and the door will not open. Try the other remote and see if it works. At that point, I would replace the batteries in both remotes anyway.
That would be the fastest and cheapest way to eliminate one possible problem.
If the inside open button works to open the door, I would say the mechanism is working fine and it is the batteries.
I had to replace the batteries in both my remotes at the 3 year mark. That should be about now, the second time, for yours.

I bought a new Chamberlain garage door remote control (Model 953EV/EVC) but my garage door opener is date 1991. Can I get this remote to sync with it? I have one remote dated 1993 that came with the...


The 953EV/EVC remote is designed to work with garage door openers at 315MHz (more or less). Your older unit doesn't work at that frequency. I'm not positive but it could be 300MHz.

You need a retrofit unit to use the new remote. See https://aclickawayremotes.com/Liftmaster/355LM-2-315-Mhz-Garage-Door-Opener-Conversion-Kit/index.html for one that works with Chamberlain units.

I hope this helps.

My remote key will not open the doors


I have to ask this question. Have you changed the battery? if the battery is good have you tried any other remotes. If one remote works and the other does not. The remote is probably bad. If all remotes do not work then the cars ecu for the door control could be bad or as simple as a fuse.

My garage opener remote on my 2003 santa fe just stopped working. How can I fix it?


There is a battery in the remote.If the battery gets old the remote will stop working.Replace the battery and check.Also if your battery is new but still the problem is there then,try to open the garage door by keeping less distance between remote as well as the garage door.Also there is a sensor in the garage door.If that sensor is not functioning then this can be one issue.In some cases the internal remote circuit gets short,in that case the remote needs replacement.But does the garage door sensor light shows any sign of getting connection from remote when you press the remote button.Open the door and try to close the door with remote and check.As per the problem,in most cases its weak battery related problem,and replacing the battery solves the problem.You can try all the possibilities and see which one helps.Thanks.Helpmech.

Cant get 2 remotes for garage door openers working at same time


You have a remote that has reverted to an earlier technology. The only way out of this is to purchase the same exact model number called for by your opener and go through the programming. You will find the new one will work with one of the old ones. Remove the battery from the one that isn't and drop it in the garbage.
