If you re-splice the hot wire your roof may have to go through the learn procedure
every time you shut your car off.
Sounds right, the suggestion would be for you to resplice the red/white wire to a trigger that turns off with the ignition instead of the retained power circuit that it seems to be on at the moment. That would be why it currently activates with the door being opened.
I always suggest soldering and heat shrink tubing whenever possible. It is one of the best connections you can make. Always make sure you insulate any power wires as good as possible.
