Customer Question
My gate keep staying...

My gate keep staying open?

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

Its only 9 months old and its happened 3 times. I need to find out how I should reset it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes, because each time has cost me 250 dollars for a guy to come out and spend 2 minutes to reset it !!

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

That's all dear
