Reprogram a keyless entry remote control for a liftmaster

This is for the keyless entry that mounts on the side of the garage door. My neighbor recently bought the house and has ask me to help. She does not know the current passcode from the previous owners. How can I program a new passcode for her since I do not know the previous one. Also is there a way to do this without having to reprogram the other remotes?

MOST OF THE WIRELESS KEYPADS YOU DON'T NEED THE OLD CODE TO PROGRAM A NEW ONE.
JUST PRESS THE LEARN/PROGRAM BUTTON AND RELEASE YOU NOW HAVE 20 SECONDS FOR HER TO PUNCH IN THE CODE SHE WANTS AND PRESS AND HOLD ENTER. THE NEXT TIME SHE PRESSES THE BUTTON THE DOOR SHOULD WORK.

NOTE IT WILL WORK FOR ABOUT 20 SECONDS AFTER ENTER IS PRESSED THE FIRST TIME. AFTER THAT YOU NEED TO RE-ENTER THE CODE AND PRESS ENTER.
PROBLEM SOLVED HAPPY NEIGHBOR!!

Our remotes (2 for the car and a keyless entry) stopped working. We erased everything (and checked to make sure our remotes weren't working) and reprogrammed all remotes. They work, but our neighbor's...


Make sure your neighbor doesn't have a remote with a sticking switch. Often times a person will stick an extra remote in a drawer and then place something on it that holds the button down. Try programming your remotes this way just in case you didn't.

Press and hold the button down on the remote while you press and immediately release the smart/learn button. Sometimes it can help if you are in the garage when you program your remotes this way and it will drown out any distant signal.

The correct keypad for your opener is 139.53684. The 53876 keypad is an older technology and will not work correctly. If you program it you will find your remotes no longer work and if you reprogram your remotes the keypad will not work.

The Multi-Function Door Control works, but the Keyless Entry that is mounted on the outside of the garage does not.


If your hand held remotes still work and the batteries are good in the keypad then it has failed.

The door control does not require programming. Make sure one of the wires hasn't come loose and also try loosening the top screw on the door control. If it is too tight it can cause a problem.

Keylees entry and remote controls do not work at the same time


There are two types of technology with this operator (rolling code and non-rolling code). This operator will except one or the other but not both. It is not uncommon for a rolling code (Security+) remote or keyless to lose the "rolling"part of its technology and become a non-rolling code device so it is not compatable with the rolling code technology. You will need to replace the one remote or keyless that is not like the others.
