Will likely need a little more info. I am presuming this is the wireless version since it's a Digi Code. However, my first thought is that the problem is not necessarily with the keypad. Most likely could be a programming issue. Have you tried to clear the memory on the Logic board on the Garage door opener and then re-program all of the openers, including the keypad?
Some Logic boards have a dedicated slot for one wireless Keypad that is made specifically for that brand of opener.
A helpful hint: When programming the keypad, have another person help you. Have them push the program button according to the programming instructions for your GDO Make.(Garage Door Opener)
Then you key in the required sequence for programming your keypad immediately after the programming button has been pressed. This reduces the amount of time the logic board wireless memory is in the learn state.
Sometimes stray radio transmissions operating at or near your openers frequency can inadvertantly be programmed into your openers logic board. Especially if there are other same manufacturers GDO units wireless remote transmitters in use within close proximity operating on the same frequency.
Another possible cause is in your hard-wired wall control button or wiring to it. There could be a short in the contacts causing the opener to operate, or a short in the wire to the wall control button. I've run into smashed wires that have had the outer insulation pierced and the metal staple shorts across both wires. (this is not good for the logic board, as it can damage sensitive circuitry on it. Causing more Costly repairs)
One way to isolate the issue is note when this occurs. Is it always the same time every day? Or is it completely random?
I hope these possible solutions help MASTER_TECH1

    to check if you have a short in the wiring to the wall button, disconnect the wires for the wall button at the motor head itself. Then note if the unit still opens and closes by itself or not.

    If it no longer operates by itself then the problem is either in the wire or the wall button.

    To check that, remove the wall button from the wall and disconnect the wires to it. Make sure they do not touch each other.

    Then, reconnect the wires back onto the motor head. IF the opener operates by itself again, then the problem is in the wiring.
    If not.
    Then reconnect the wall button. If the motor operates by itself again, then the problem is in the button.
    Hope this helps.

2006 Nissan Quest back door won't open.

f you can get the door open, at the top left corner of the door is a bar that attaches to the door that opens and closes it by use of a motor. It may have loosened itself off. If you can't get the door open at all make sure there is nothing that may have closed on the door itself, If there is something there such as a strap or something you will probably be fighting with it for a while but eventually it should work itself loose. The bar from the motor that attaches to the door may have came loose. My quest is doing the same thing. I went to tighten it down and it had already stripped itself off of the inside of the door frame. I was able to get the nut by closing the door and digging for it inside of the door frame. Of course all of the door panels were removed to do this. On the downside of this the nut was tack welded to the inside of the door frame, there is absolutely no way to get this nut back up in there unless I cut a small hole in the door where I can get the nut in there to tighten down.
I will try to get to fix it tomorrow if I can, the problem is I'm going to have to fix it somehow or the back door will be useless unless I feel like opening it from the emergency latch every time I need to open it.

Seems to be a faulty door wants to start but the computer thinks the door is still open and wont allowing it to continue, thus turning off. Try playing with the door latch before opening it up and looking within the latch.

The most common cause of this is a bad wall control or the wiring going to it. The wall control goes bad from use and the wiring sometimes has intermittent short caused by the staples the installer used.

Dryer door opens by itself after a few seconds

If you are drying very large loads the door could be popping open from weight against it, not the most likely source of problem. Most likely latch is getting worn out and needs replaced.

Garage Door opens by itself

Your garage door springs may be out of balance. Try this test: Remove power from the opener motor. Pull the red release rope so that the door is detached from the openers drive. Lift open the door by hand- it should open all the way freely. Next, pull the door back down, stopping it about chest-high. It should remain where you stopped it. IIf the door is difficult to move, or does not stay half open, the springs need replacement or adjustment.
