My unit passes this test but it is repeatedly telling the home base my door is open. So MyQ G0303 sends a signal. Opening the door. This leaves my door in a completely unknown state if I am not home to see it. Locked garage door from remotes and it and I still get messages (door open, door closed) I set the warning time to one minute and this is what is happening.
