Question about Sears Craftsman LiftMaster Chamberlain Garage Door Opener Wireless Keypad Model 976LM Security+

1 Answer

Keypad code will close the door but not open it.

Our keypad entry and remotes have been working fine for about 5 years. Now when we enter the code into the keypad it will only close the door. The door will not open by using the keypad. We have already replaced the batteries. Any suggestions?

Tried to reprogram security code for outdoor key pad on 1/2hp craftsman garage door opener according to instructions online, pressed learn button- put in new 4 digit code-held enter. Lights did not flash...


Seems you've done everything right. Press and immediately release the smart/learn button and then walk over and key in a 4 digit code and press enter. If you are sure the battery in the keypad is good then I think your keypad is on the fritz or the wrong one for that opener.

Model 940CB/67LMTrouble free for 10-12 years. Now with a new battery after code + enter it will flash about 60 times very fast will not open the door. The door opener works fine with the button on the wall...


You can try programming it but I have a feeling it is bad.

Locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit. Press and immediately release this and then walk over to your keypad and key in your 4 digit code and press enter.

If this doesn't work you will need a new keypad.

Craftsman Model 139.53684 Keyless entry doesn't work


The remotes and keypad use the receiver which is part of the logic board.'t The button on the wall is hardwired and doesn't use the receiver. You might pull the logic board and check for bad connections on the printed circuit.

    Need to reprogram key less entry. 2002 Ford explorer sport.


    Keyless Entry Keypad FAQ Ford Explorer
    The keypad can be operated with the factory set 5-digit entry code
    You can use the keyless entry keypad to
    • Lock or unlock the doors without using a key.
    • Open the liftgate window.
    • Activate or deactivate the autolock feature.

    Where the code can be found
    • This code is located on the owner's wallet card in the glove box
    • Is available from your authorized dealer via scan code
    • Is marked on the computer module

    Computer Module location
    • 1995 thru 2001 is located in the jack storage compartment in the rear of your Explorer. First remove the panel to the jack storage compartment. Towards the front of this area you should see a metal box this is your auto-lock module(way up front next to your rear left passenger seat). On the back side of this is your 5 digit code factory preset code. It is hard to get to. To see it you will have to loosen, pull, use a flashlight or a mirror but it can be done.

    • 2002 thru 2007 is in the right panel behind the middle row window. It is below the seat belt mechanism. You have to pull out the top plastic panel off, then loosen the lower panel to be able to see the face of the computer module. The code is on a sticker on the face of the module.

    Programming a personal entry code The factory set code cannot be reprogrammed but you can create your own 5�digit personal entry code. When pressing the controls on the keypad, press the middle of the controls to ensure a good activation.
    Up to three personal entry codes may be programmed to the vehicle. To create your own personal entry code:

    • 1. Enter the factory set code.
    • 2. Within five seconds press the 1 � 2 on the keypad.
    • 3. Enter your personal 5-digit code. Each number must be entered within five seconds of each other.
    • 4. Press 1 � 2, 3 � 4 or 5 � 6 to indicate which of the three personal entry code positions you wish to use.
    • 5. The doors will again lock then unlock to confirm that your personal key code has been programmed to the module.
    Tips:

    • Do not set a code that uses five of the same number.
    • Do not use five numbers in sequential order.
    • The factory set code will work even if you have set your own personal code.
    • If you program a code to a position that already contains a set code, the previously-set code will be erased.

    Erasing personal code
    • 1. Enter the factory set 5�digit code.
    • 2. Within five seconds, press the 1 � 2 on the keypad and release.
    • 3. Press and hold the 1 � 2 for two seconds. This must be done within five seconds of completing Step 2.
    All personal codes are now erased and only the factory set 5�digit code will work.

    Anti-scan feature If the wrong code has been entered 7 times (35 consecutive button presses), the keypad will go into an anti-scan mode. This mode disables the keypad for one minute and the keypad lamp will flash.

    The anti-scan feature will turn off after
    • One minute of keypad inactivity.
    • Pressing the UNLOCK control on the remote entry transmitter.
