If the indicator light of the remote control is not bright or dark after pressing the button, it may be the remote control battery is insufficient. After changing the battery, if still not bright, you should check whether the positive and negative polarity of the battery has been installed backwards and whether it has a good contact with the soleplate. If no problems with the above checking, and still not bright with the indicator light, then you should check whether the button can work well.

If no problem with the remote control, and it appeared after changing a new battery or guard against theft system components, you should match a new remote control according to the fixed program, and not all models need to be matched, different models have different rules. If there are two remote controls, you can first test whether the other one can work well, if there is response, it may because the password of the first one has been lost, and need to be matched. If it still can’t work after matching, there may be problems with the receiving host or the transmitting antenna. And if the host of the remote control is blocked or there is strong interference source, the host will not correctly receive electromagnetic waves from the remote control, and can't control central door lock.
