Garage door opens by itself. Maybe neighbor has same code?


This is generally caused by a bad wall control or the wiring going to it. Make sure there are no staples cutting through the insulation. You can temporarily remove both of these possibilities by removing the wire at terminal #1 on the rear of the motor unit. You can then hook that wire back up and remove one of the wires from the back of the wall control.

I live in a 4-unit condo building constructed in 2008. Recently, after I trained/programed a garage door opener incorporated in a new car I purchased, I discovered that my garage door started to be...


I would recommend this. I'm not sure this will work, but I think it will.
Try starting from scratch. Reprogram the unit to the car again, I think the codes change each time it is done. If not, it's not too difficult to try.

Garage door is opening when the neighbor open theirs with remot


You say you "setup the remote and the main box but doesn't solve." I think you mean you programmed the unit but I'm not sure. Anyway try holding the smart/learn button in for 10 seconds and this will erase the memory. None of the remotes should work. Now when you are sure the neighbor will not be using their opener, program your remotes. This may be what you did but I'm not sure.

My neighbors remote opens my door too!


Most usually this is caused by a bad wall control or the wiring going to it. You can eliminate both possibilities by removing the wire from terminal #1 on the motor unit. The wire is sometimes intermittently shorted by the staples used for installation. The wall control just goes bad. Post the model number of your opener.

Neighbor opening our garage door


Report this problem to the Manufactuer stating your model number of controller and remotes too and they may help solve your problem faster than getting offside with your neighbour,apart from that the remotes and motor controller may need replacing to give you more security and control over your own secure enviroment,

I have fitted many security devices,alarm panels,cameras,sensors,keypads,etc,
and never had to repair this type of fault as the supplier or manufactuer has always assisted with their products thru warantee or advice,

I have 20 years of experience in the industy in NZ,Thanks MISTERDJ

Garage door opened by neighbor


Have you seen the neighbor open your door? The reason I ask is because it is almost impossible. The most common cause of a door opening by itself is a bad wall control or the wiring leading to it. You can temporarily eliminate both possibilities by removing the wire from terminal 1 at the rear of the motor unit. Do this and ask your neighbor to bring over his remote and try it on your opener.
