i have a liftmaster keypad and remote and my code all of a sudden won't work.....additional question...i have an apollo gate that the lift master is wired to ... how do i set up the remote to open the gate?


My first inclination is that your keypad and remote have been removed from the Logic board memory.
If you have the Opener's instruction manual, then go to the programming section for how to re-program your keypad and remote.
If you do not have your manual then you can go to the Liftmaster website and download / view the manual for your particular unit. You will need the model number for your unit. That can be found near the light fixture on the unit (if you have two light fixtures, then look for a data sticker that indicates Model number and Serial number. You may have to remove or lift the light cover in order to find it.)
This is the link to the Liftmaster website: http://www.liftmaster.com/consumerweb/service/manuals/instructionmanualslanding.htm
To answer your second question, I will need to know what model of gate opener you have, and also need to know if there is a separate Receiver box unit or not. Most Gate operators will have the receiver unit built into them. Some however do not, and an external one will be wired to the gate motor unit, and possibly mounted to a wall near the gate motor. question: do you use the same remote for the gate that you use for the Garage door opener or do you have a separate remote for each? If you do, I need the model number on the remote for the gate operator. That will tell me what kind of tx/rx you have and possibly where to locate the learn button.

left brake light dont work when brake peddel is applied


Replace the bulb,
1. Open the lift gate on the rear of your Blazer or drop it if you have the tail gate that folds down. Locate the screws on the inner edge of the lift gate frame. There are two screws--remove them with a Phillips screwdriver.
2. Slide the taillight assembly out of the rear of the truck, being careful to not break the locating tabs on the rear of the housing. Locate the bulb sockets on the rear of the taillight assembly.
3. Rotate the light bulb socket counterclockwise about a quarter turn to unlock it from the taillight assembly. Pull the socket straight out of the assembly with the bulb attached to it.
4. Remove the bulb from the socket by pulling it straight out of the socket. If you are removing the entire assembly from the truck, remove the remaining sockets from the rear of the taillight assembly, lay them aside and remove the assembly completely.
5. Reinstall everything in revers and don't for get to *** some grease to your socket before you place the new bulb in place and test the operation of the new bulb before you reinstall the tail light.
Thank you for using fixya and here is the bulb you need for the trail light.The 1999 Blazer uses a 3057 bulb available at most auto parts stores.

How do I replace the turn signal bulb on my 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee? It seems like I must remove alot of the front end to get at the bulb... is this true?


For the front turn signal:

There are two ways to get at the bulb.

Way 1) YOU NEED A SKINNY SHAFTED STAR SCREWDRIVER. This is how the manual describes it: Unscrew the 2 star screws holding the parking light housing on. One is on top, the other is between the parking light and the turn signal. This second screw can be very difficult to get to because the parking light and turn signal housing are very close. After the parking light housing is off, you can unscrew the turn signal housing. The screws should be located on top of the housing, underneath the parking light housing.

Way 2) This is the way I did mine: First, you have to take the headlight housing off. It should be pretty easy to pop off if you pry it the right way. It is held on by 1 square clip and 2 ball and socket clips. There is a small risk of breaking the ball and socket clips, as getting the headlamp housing off does require a little force, so be careful. You may want to take the headlight bulb out first, but isn't necessary. (Removing the right side bulb may require removing the battery) Once the headlamp housing is off, the turn signal bulbs should be very easy to get to.

To remove the bulb, simply turn the bulb socket and it will come out.


For the rear turn signal:


Open the lift gate.

There are 3 hex screws that hold each rear light assembly on. I'd recommend a hex screwdriver, as a socket wrench or box wrench would be very hard to use on the screws. Once the hex screws are off, just tug on the light assembly and it will come off. The bulbs are very easy to get to. The turn signal is the yellow one.

I need to replace my tail light on a Ford Edge. How do I do this?


open the lift gate, remove the 2 or 3 8mm hex screws on by the light housing, and then pull outward on the lens. Then grab the bulb socket and twist counter clockwise, turn about 90 degrees and pull out., pull the bulb out and then reverse to re-assemble. don't be afraid to use some force to get the lens out if you need to, but it shouldn't feel like the lens is going to break.
