Is the LED next to the switch blinking a number of times? There are multiple sensors and servos that work together and there is a module that controls the top operations and it throws codes when a failure is detected. To read the codes you need a special tool, it is cheaper to take it to a capable shop to diagnose the codes that purchasing the tool and learn how to diagnose yourself.
