Why does a garage door opener with or without the door hooked open only a foot or two and then stop and does the same if the door is open and you try to close it?
Many garage door opener manufacturers, in order to make their product SAFER, have added a circuit in the motor, which measures the amount and changes in the operating electrical current. The purpose of this is to detect anything blocking the movement of the door [e.g., a child, a person, a pet, a vehicle, etc.] Even "dragging" bearings/bushing INSIDE the motor can cause this.
Upon detection, the door is supposed to stop, and, sometimes, even return to its previous stopped position [usually full open]. ANYTHING, which causes the door motor to "work harder," can trick that detector and cause the situation you describe.
If there is nothing blocking the door, I have found that "dragging" rollers, or bearings/bushings inside the motor,can cause the problem. If this is the cause in your case, then you probably can correct it.
First, carefully CLEAN all accumulated dust, dirt, lint, cobwebs, grease, etc from the tracks, the rollers, and the roller axles. Then carefully lubricate all roller bearings/axles with JUST 2 or 3 DROPS each of any clean oil. Do NOT overlubricate as this just encourages more accumulation of debris.
Another possibility is that some, or all, of the rollers and/or their bearings/bushings are worn out, causing the drag, and then it will be necessary to replace them. These parts are usually available at your local hardware stores, or home improvement warehouses like Lowe's, Home Depot, etc.
IF your problem is caused by "drag," then proper cleaning and lubrication will fix the problem. Also, drag can be caused by misalignment of any of the tracks, and or bending damage to the door or tracks. Good luck 1 j3h

Why does a garage door remote open and close door successfully inside of the garage but really hard to open the door out of the garage?
Your car brand won't make any difference. It might be related to the batteries in the remote and the distance to the electronics inside the garage when the opener is outside. You could be trying to open the door from too far away if it happens when you are driving up to the house. If it happens sitting in the driveway check your owners manual in the troubleshooting section. Contact the installer or manufacturer if… Read More

Garage door opens by itself as soon as hits the ground the sensors are perfectly alinged and nothing is blocking the sensors?
It seems likely that you have programmed the opener to continue closing beyond the point when the door was closed. When it hits the ground, and the motors feel resistance, the device is programmed to reverse the direction of the door for safety reasons (e.g. if a person is trapped under the door) There is probably a setting that will dictate how far the garage should close before it stops. There should be a sensitivity… Read More
