ST. CHARLES, Mo. -- Residents of Westhampton View Court in St. Charles County have solved their garage door mystery.

Shortly after Christmas, garage door openers stopped working at the five homes on the cul-de-sac, drawing significant media attention.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that two neighbors figured out that a transformer for one of their landscape lights was emitting a signal that interfered with the frequency controlling the garage doors.
