The keyless entry is not repairable. If it is not working, the only option is to replace it. I have looked up the keyless entry and posted a link for it below. Please let me know if you need further assistance on the opener.

Your opener is flashing the code for RPM sensor or motor overload. The RPM sensor is a small printed circuit board just in front of the motor. It is held in place by 2 plastic fingers. The wiring has a quick disconnect. Just by looking at it you will see how easy it will be to replace.

With what you have stated I do not believe the problem is with the rpm sensor. Usually when a garage door open will not work and the lights flash for five seconds it is because the safety sensors have a problem. I have provided you with an image below showing how to troubleshoot the safety sensors. To determine if the sensors are the problem, make sure nothing in the path of the door travel. Then push and hold the wall button in the garage. If the door goes all the way down, when you hold the button, the problem is in the safety sensors. If you follow the trouble shooting in the image below and the open still does not work I would suspect either faulty sensors or broken wires to the sensors.

If you need further assistance, please submit more details below.
