    Anyone know what causes the homelink to sometimes "Skipping Auto close". It seems to happen to me about 50% of the time. I know it's something I am doing, just no clue what that might be.

    No. But, mine seems to be fairly sensitive on open or close. Not sure if it's the strength being sent to opener, or possibly a directional problem. Mine is NOT skipping, at least from what it appears. I'm not sure how I would know; it either opens/closes when I expect, or it doesn't. Skipping would be a different issue altogether I would think... :confused:

    I got rid of the auto close and auto open for home link as a couple of times it tried to decapitate my car as I was about to pull in. I just like when it pops up and gives me the option to open or close.

    damn. as Much as I like tech on the car, I hate it for the non functional surprises.

    I had a similar incident when my gate auto-closed on me as I was existing. Scratched up around the rear wheel just above to where the clear bra was applied. So I too have turned off the auto-close option now.

    I thought summon would open my garage door, but it almost hit my garage door while backing out.

    I too get the skip warning often. ..I think it's caused by a delay with loading the kids in the drive way.
