Have you checked the battery? Voltage might be too low. Had the same issue and just needed the battery swapped.

Was going to mention the same thing. My battery status would show full charge and jump down to 2 bars the moment I tried to operate the gate. Was a worn out battery!

Yip always check, replace battery if issue's persist or battery ageing.

I took battery from alarm which is fully charged showing like 13.4v
And still does the same thing

Checked all the leads are still good and well connected? Also had my battery leads making bad contact with the battery which caused havoc. Took them off, cleaned the connectors, tightened them and worked wonders. Or replace the connectors

i meant how old is the battery (the one from the alarm) even though voltage might be showing fine initially when current is pulled from it it will drop fast if it is old/under charged/damaged etc.

Dos is the origin sensor isn't it?
Check the magnet and sensor.




/edit I see it's the optical sensor not the magnet....
