Q: Issues with the unlocking doors using a remote

asked by on

Hello. I don't know how to fix the problem I've been having with the door locks. After pessing the button the doors would unlock, but only if I hold the button. As sson as I let go off the button, the locks on the doors are up again. How can I fix this? Thank you.

Try to use another remote to see if the problem happens still with that remote.

Sometimes the remote button sticks and only holding the button will allow the other buttons to work. If another remote is being used, make sure the first remote is moved out of range and the battery removed.

Once the test is done, then you will know if the problem is with the remote and it needs to be replaced, or if the system has a more serious door lock issue that will require more testing with a mechanic. A mobile mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, can inspect your door lock issue for you and recommend the best path to repair.
