Boss BOL4 Garage door opener vacation mode

This garage door opener will not work with the remote controls. When a button is pressed, the light flashes 5 times. According to the Install manual the "VACATION" mode has been activated by the deluxe 3 function wall station. There is however no wall station attached to this unit and therefore it can not be turned off vacation mode. Any Ideas?

SOURCE: garage door went on "vacation"

Try to remove the power cord. Be careful if you have to climb a ladder! Reinsert.
Here are instructions for vacation mode:
If you have a three buttom wall panel, one of the small buttons should be the lock button, push this button and hold it for a couple of seconds until the LED on the wall panel stops blinking.

Good Luck!

Hold the button with the lock icon in for 3 seconds. This should toggle the unit off vacation mode and your remotes will work.

I have an opener stuck in vacation mode... the wall unit is one button, the remote is 3, but we bought this house and there are no markings on the buttons. How do I get it out of vacation mode?


Enter the existing Code and press * key. The light should flash twice. If the light does not flash twice you have the wrong code. Now enter the new code you want to use and press Enter. You should now be set to use the smart learn button on the back of your receiver.

Garage Door Remote Doesn't Work


Here’s a problem I’ve run into several times lately- the garage door opener remote no longer works. The good news is the solution has been very simple. Check your wall control.

Is the led solid or flashing? If it’s flashing you’re in luck. The wall control should have two buttons, one with a light symbol and one with a lock symbol. Press and hold the lock button for a few seconds then release. The led on the wall control should now be solid and your remotes will now function.

What’s that button for, you ask? Good question. It is a “vacation mode” setting so that when you’re gone the remote function is disabled decreasing the likelihood of break-in.

Most times no one pays much attention to the lock button; they are usually going for the light button and press lock by mistake.

Now if the wall control led was solid the whole time, this gets a little trickier. Grab a ladder and take a look at the side of the garage door opener where the wire hangs down, that’s the remote antenna. Near the antenna will be the “learn button” where you program the remotes. Right next to this button is an led. Now we can test the remote by pressing the button (on the remote not the learn button) and see if the led on the garage door opener lights up.

If the led lights up but there is no reaction from the opener it may be that the opener just needs to be reprogrammed. Sometimes the garage door opener gets a “brain freeze” and loses sync with the remote. Press the learn button and quickly release it, you now have 30 seconds to program your remote. Press and hold the remote button until you get a reaction from the opener, either the lights will flash or you will hear a click. Try your remote now to see if it works. If you are still having trouble the garage door opener’s logic board (where the learn button is located) may be faulty. This would be a very costly repair unless you are savvy enough to replace it yourself.)

If the led on the opener did not light up you may have a bad battery in the remote, the remote itself is bad or again the logic board is defective.

My access Master 350 will not open or close when using remotes


If the light in the wall control is flashing your opener is in the lock/vacation mode. Press and hold the button with the lock icon for 3 seconds. If this is not the case your logic board is bad.

Garage door remote won't open the garage door


The little button with a padlock on the wall control is a "vacation" lockout feature that disables the remotes. There should be a small LED on the wall control that is always on steady. When the padlock button is pressed and released the LED should be constantly blinking (indicating the vacation lockout mode is active) and your remotes should be disabled. The wall control will still operate the door. Pushing the padlock button again should make the LED stop blinking and restore the door to normal operation.
