Allister ARD-IIA Garage Opener Light stays on

I bought a house with an Allister ARD-IIA garage door opener. When I open the garage door, the light on the opener comes on and stays on. It never goes out.

I know this is an old system, but does anyone know what the issue might be?

There was a really old thread on this forum (2003) about the issue but no one posted a resolution.

Does anyone have any ideas?

It is probably a bad control board. Not the whole board but the section timing out the light. Problem is, you can't just get that section and may not even be able to find a complete board.

Your best bet may be to watch for sales in December and January and retire your old opener.
