The install went fine, all the senors are aimed properly and remotes are all synced. I can open and close the garage just fine from inside the garage but when I close it and im in the driveway the remotes don't work at all. I have to get right next to the door and even then they work only 1 in maybe 30 trys. I read there may be a frequency issue or something with too much metal or motion sensors, is this true? Is there a fix or way around this all? If not then I can't believe craftsman put their name on it. Any suggestions would be appreciated!!

The main light flashing 10 times is the sign of a door sensor problem. Check to see if the small light on each sensors is lit and not flickering. If you cannot get both lights to come on your sensors or the wiring to them is bad.
If the remote opens and closes while inside the garage but not outside , there are a few things it could be. Assuming it was working fine before..
1. weak battery in remote.
2. remote itself could be bad. (unless you have more than 1 remote acting the same)
3. Logic board in opener is going bad causing limited range.Is the wire that hangs down from the opener straightened out? That is your remote antenna.Some people have coiled or even cut it off..reducing range.
4. Less likely but this can happen- interference from another electronic device, wireless routers, cell phone, new appliances etc.. can reduce remote range. Any new electronics recently purchased?
Sounds like "cross talk" interfence from the other operator. You can get a plugin external reciever that should work with your current remotes. Try to get as much distance as you can between the working operator and the new reciever.
