Here is what I did to mine; the CR has two micro switches and can be programmed to different GDO. I tucked it under the left front pocket holding in place by a piece velcro; in the picture you can see the 4 wires coming out the switches into a small plug glued to the back of case, from there run to the push button switch installed by the throttle. Also the black and red wires supply from the accessory fuse power to eliminate the OEM battery, the zener diode and limiting resistor takes care for over voltage when the motor is revved up keeping it at constant 12 V, otherwise those sensitive equipment could smoke (don't ask me how I know). I have one sliding gate at home and two at work, and manage all with this simple thing.

Thanks for the pics. I took a piece of wire to simulate the switch circuit and held one end on one leg, then touched another. When the opener operated, I knew I had found the right 2. Fun times in the garage.

My shop overhead door has an opener on it, but it don't work anymore. never has since I bought this place 4 years ago.

I think it is time to find out why and get it fixed. I would love to be able to have that door open when I come in from a long ride.

Hi John:
You may start looking if the electricity bill has been paid. LOL
sorry, I couldn't resist.
Mosy probably is the CR, does the main unit have a sort of test button? where you can start it? If it does, and it works from there you'll know the problem is on the CR.; that's just a thought, and where I would start looking!

It is a screw drive where the door is pulled along with a rubbing block.

the screw turns, but the block don't move. So, the threads in the block are most likely stripped out. I suspect some enterprising person figured it is a screw drive and needs grease

the grease collected dirt, and the dirt chewed up the threads.
just a guesstimate...

Could it be that the door was manually locked in the down position and someone hit the up button. Whatever the reason it's not working and we need to find the fix.

I don't remember now Charlie, I remember seeing the motor run, and the screw shaft turning.

So if the unit is working then will be easy to replace the sliding block with a new one and then open the door while sitting on your bike.
