Meant all Odysseus are automatic haha

I replaced the roller/trolly and lined it up correctly. Hit the button to close the door and it moved slightly then beeped. I stopped it immediately. Now the motor doesn't even seem to turn on and I cannot close it manually. I have changed the roller once before and it worked fine for a couple years.

Are you suggesting to replace the whole remote control assembly? I had the middle roller off last night and hit the button and the door began to open but wanted to fall since the middle roller was not there to support. But as soon as I fastened the roller to the door, the activation switch would no longer work. So would that mean the control assembly functioning properly and some how the middle track is seized? I can't even get it to move when I release the two white tabs that give you slack to get the roller off the door.

But shouldn't that middle roller move manually? I don't want to buy a part, spend the time to replace it and then it not fix the door
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
The manual says all you have to do is turn off the automatic switch and the door can open and close manually. The remote control assembly can completely seize that guide cable that opens and closes the door?

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
