Question about Miscellaneous
It is not that easy. instead of using sensors use a tennis ball on a string hanging from the ceiling and when the car is in the garage the correct distance, the ball touches the windshield. The sensors on a garage door opener cannot be installed in a parallel fashion. You could try series on them if you know which side is sender and which is receiver.. Send side wont need to be wired in series.

stop adjusting. you are doing right thing. unit will not run down w/o eyes so removing wiring did nothing. you gave clue when yu said they were folloded. buy new set of eyes.

You cannot bypass the sensors but you can try reversing their position so that the sun isn't hitting the receiving unit. You can also move them back from the door or use something like the tube inside a roll of toilet tissue to shade the lens.

Tips for a great answer:
reversing sensors must be connected and aligned correctly before the
garage door opener will close. An obstruction in the path of the
sensor will also cause your door to not close.
This sensor is an electronic
beam, which is sent between two sending and receiving "eyes".
These eyes face each other and are located just inside your garage
door. They may need to be adjusted so the beam from the sending eye
is properly detected by the receiving eye. Once the receiving eye
"sees" the beam from the sending eye, a green indicator light
will glow on the top of the eye. Tweak them a bit. If both lights do not come on you have bad sensors.
