Changed Batteries in garage door opener remote....now won't work

I have a Sears Craftsman Garage door opener from 1997 model # 41A4315-7D. The batteries went dead in the remote, so I changed the batteries. The remote calls for 2 batteries DL2016. They are supposed to be installed on top of each other. I have tried putting them in the remote in all the combinations possible; positive to positive, negative to negative, posivite to negative, etc. After installing the batteries in each combination, I tried resetting the codes and can not get any to take. HELP! There is a gree code search button on the back of the opener that I am pressing along with the remote button. The remote has the opener button and 2 smaller buttons (no idea what they do). Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    i do have the batteries in correctly, but can't get the codes to set. It is the original remote to the opener.

My suggestion would be to make sure that the codes to the opener match the remote and I would stop by a Sears service center for assistance or a Ace hardware store

How do I program my garage remote in my 2003 es300 Lexus?


You probably need to program the garage door opener,not the car.I have only had to program the Craftsman opener in my garage once(our 2005 Grand Caravan has a built in opener)The opener should have a programming button(my Craftsman opener's button is under one of the light covers).It will probably have the programming instructions near the button(in TINY print).You will want to have ALL of your garage remotes handy(to make sure they all still work after adding the car's remote-some openers have a maximum number of transmitters allowed.

My garage opener remote on my 2003 santa fe just stopped working. How can I fix it?


There is a battery in the remote.If the battery gets old the remote will stop working.Replace the battery and check.Also if your battery is new but still the problem is there then,try to open the garage door by keeping less distance between remote as well as the garage door.Also there is a sensor in the garage door.If that sensor is not functioning then this can be one issue.In some cases the internal remote circuit gets short,in that case the remote needs replacement.But does the garage door sensor light shows any sign of getting connection from remote when you press the remote button.Open the door and try to close the door with remote and check.As per the problem,in most cases its weak battery related problem,and replacing the battery solves the problem.You can try all the possibilities and see which one helps.Thanks.Helpmech.

Programming the garage door opener


I know what the problem is but never tried to resolve it. I have a 1998 XJ8 and went through the same problem. After numerous attempts to program the 4 channel built in opener I researched the problem and learned that the system in the car actually changes the code after every use. It's a security feature built in to the system. I simply started keeping my remote in the car.

There must be a way to disable the automatic randomizer so it retains the code from your remote opener everytime. Check with the dealer to see if it can be disabled and you will be in business. Please post the info if you get it.

Good Luck!

Remote garage door opener


1-800-355-3515

1. Position vehicle within 10 feet of garage door- engine off and battery on.

2. Press/hold 2 outside buttons of Homelink transceiver until red indicator starts flashing rapidly, then release button. This should take about 20 seconds. This erases any previously learned codes.

3. Press/hold remote control and press/hold button of Homelink transceiver simultaneously. Slowly move remote control from 5" away to 1" away from Homelink transceiver. Release both buttons after red indicator starts blinking rapidly. This should take about 5 seconds. I discovered that the Homelink in my TL is a bit faulty because it took much longer to accomplish this than when programming the Homelink in my MDX. My TL's Homelink may "unlearn" it's code in the future and the needed proximity of the TL to the garage door may be much closer than desired until I get the Homelink fixed.

4. Press training button on garage door opener unit until the indicator lights illuminates- this should be immediate.

5. Within 30 seconds press/hold the Homelink button for 2-3 seconds until the red indicator starts flashing rapidly. Repeat a second time. It should now be programmed. Check it by pressing the programmed button on the Homelink receiver.

6. When programming more than 1 garage door opener unit, disconnect power from unit before programming more units. By not doing this the programmed unit could conflict with the unprogrammed units commands.

Problems:

1. The Battery in the garage door remote may be too weak to program Homelink. However, the battery may be strong enough to operate the garage door. One of my remote controls had a weak battery- my system was installed today, fresh out of the box. I had to use the second remote control for the programming of Homelink on my 2 vehicles.

2. Antenna on the garage door opener unit must be hanging down, fully extended.
