The remotes do not work the solenoids at all. I've been fairly quick or even slow programming just to get the remotes to work, but to no avail. It is a 4 channel unit but I am using (or trying to) only 2 channels. There is no reset buton indicated anywhere. The paper clip, you mention, is used to set the transmitter to receive the codes and turn the LED on. From there you press the fob button, holding it until it chirps again. That's when everything shuts down and I cannot set the second button. Even then, the 1st button does not energize the 1st relay which in turn sets off the solenoid. I know that the relays work the solenoids as when I ground the relay it sets off the solenoid. Any other thoughts?
