Have you ever tried to open your garage door the remote wasn’t working? It could be that you need to replace the battery or re-program the remote. Replacing the battery isn’t that difficult, but re-programming the remote may be a bit more tricky. Here’s how you program your garage door remote if you aren’t able to open the door:
1. Look at the Manual to Replace The Batteries
Your remote should be able to tell you how to open the remote to change out the batteries. It’s best to start with replacing the batteries before you re-program it. Also, the remote may need to have both of these things done in order for it work again.
Test the remote once you have changed the batteries. If it is still not working, then you can use the following instructions to re-program it.
2. Find The Code Button On The Opener
The garage door opener is the automatic part that is located in the middle of the ceiling. There is a button on the unit that is located above the antenna wire. You’ll likely need to use a ladder to reach this.
3. Press The Button
You’ll need to press the button on the unit one time when you are ready to re-program your remote. Make sure you have the remote in your hand when you do this so the transmitter and receiver are close to each other.
4. Press The Remote
After you’ve pushed the button on the receiver, you’ll need to push the button on the remote. Press it three times in a row so that it will re-program it to the opener. Once you have done this, try and open or close your door with the remote.
What if The Programming Doesn’t Take?
If you have changed the batteries and tried to re-program the remote, but it still doesn’t work, you may need to sync the two together. This can be done by taking the batteries out of the remote again. Leave them out for about a minute. While the batteries are out, unplug the opener for a minute.
Once a minute has passed, put the batteries back in the remote and plug in the opener. This can reset the two and open lines of communication again. If it still is not working, then try and re-program it again using the steps outlined above.
