Hi I'm sorry I, was working with another question on the same issue but your sis NOT the door lock!
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.
Yours is a bit different. Yours needs a new main control board to solve this problem, also available from the same source I sent to you.Make sure when you call for that, they give you one with a pre programmed IC already installed!
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.
Otherwise you will need a tech to come out and do that for you at an additional expense.Its easy to change out, but TIP (take a few pics of the wiring clips so you know exactly where they go on the new board.Tech MichaelPlease don't forget to rate kindly, once you do that, I will be notified and will send you a confirmation so you knwo how to get in touch with me when you have the board;-)
