Re: On 4 occasions we found the door open! Installed in...
Sometimes the down force is set too light and the door opens as it gets to end of travel. Are you sure it was closed and stopped when you found it opened? Or just heading down as u drove off. Also, the wall remote if wired could have a staple that penetrated the wiring, that shorts out and opens door intermittently.

Do any doors lock/unlock with remote keyless entry ?
The doors do not lock/unlock using the remote transmitter
Remote transmitter battery.
Remote transmitter programming.
High power devices.
TV/radio transmission towers.
Vehicle security module.
Go To Pinpoint Test C .
Pinpoint Test C: The Doors Do Not Lock/Unlock Using The Remote Transmitter Normal Operation
Remote locking and unlocking of the doors is accomplished by the vehicle security module receiving a command message from the remote transmitter. The vehicle security module processes the command and sends a signal directly to the door lock actuators.
All remote transmitters must be present to begin diagnosis of the remote keyless entry (RKE) system.
Aftermarket or dealer-installed systems may adversely effect the RKE system operation. These systems should be disconnected before diagnosing any RKE concerns.

If an obvious cause for an observed or reported concern is found, correct the cause (if possible) before proceeding to the next step.
If the cause is not visually evident, connect the diagnostic tool to the vehicle to be tested from the diagnostic tool menu. If the diagnostic tool does not communicate with the vehicle:
Check that the program card is correctly installed.
Check the connections to the vehicle.
Check the ignition switch position.
If the diagnostic tool still does not communicate with the vehicle, refer to the diagnostic tool operating manual.
Carry out the diagnostic tool data link test. If the diagnostic tool responds with:
SCP+, SCP- OR UBP circuits fault; all electronic control units no response/not equipped, refer to Section 418-00 .
No response/not equipped for vehicle security module, refer to Section 418-00 .
System passed, retrieve and record the continuous diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs), erase the continuous DTCs, and carry out the self-test diagnostics for the vehicle security module.
If the DTCs retrieved are related to the concern, go to the Vehicle Security Module Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics.
If DTCs are retrieved that are not found in the following Vehicle Security Module Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index, refer to the Master Vehicle Security Module Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index in Section 418-00 .
If no DTCs related to the concern are retrieved, proceed to the Symptom Chart to continue diagnostics.
Opening the drivers door with the key is supposed to shut down the factory security but the drivers key cylinder usually goes bad. You will have to unlock the rear tail gate lock cylinder with the key and that will shut down the factory security, before opening the drivers door.Your other option is to have an aftermarket keyless entry system installed, which will open the doors remotely while shut down the factory security at the same time.
You can try programming it but first make sure the battery is good. Locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. Press and immediately release this and then walk over to your keypad and key in any 4 digit code you like and press enter.
Yes, you purchased the wrong wireless. You must get a Genie keyless and there are two types of Genie keyless (GWKP & GWK-BL) depending on which Genie operator you have. You might think about a wired keyless entry (Domino GD-1). Then if you change your operator you don't have to change your keyless.
