I've had it for around 10 years... I opened it 2 weeks ago..opened like usual... tried to close it and it would not respond light turns on like it has heard the command from the remote unit but nothing happens, It's not the door sensor, I checked that. It's not a jammed belt, I checked that too. I can't find a reset button so I unplugged it overnight and plugged it back in, that didn't work. Do I just need a new unit?

That sounds like what happened to my neighbor.They came to the conclusion that someone tried to jam a screwdriver in the lock to open the door.As far as not openeing anymore,that happened to me and I had to replace the mechanism inside the door.I bought a used one for $5 and did it myself.A regular mechanic should be able to fix it however,you may end up needing to have 2 separate keys for your car if they replace the lock.1 for the ignition and other locks,and 1 for the drivers side lock.Call around a few places for a few estimates.Tell them the same as what you posted,they should be able to give a close estimate over the phone.Also,please read my tip about car keys.It is good free info.Good luck!

You can try programming but if it still doesn't work then your keypad is just bad. Locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. Press and immediately release it and then walk over to your keypad and key in your 4 digit code and press enter.
use a hair dryer to heat the gasket up and gently pull all the bends and wrinkles outs. this takes a tremindous amount of patients even with us techs, so work slowly. once you have that done and the gasket shift to form the door seal put a light coat of vasaline all the way aroung the gasket then push the door shut making sure you gasket is touching the door seal all the way around it mat take going over it again with the hair dryer with the door closed to get it to form correctly, once formed don't open the door for a min. of 4 to 8hrs if it can be avoided and after that make sure you close the door and it seals for the next week to 2 weeks which is about the time it take for it to cure properly
