We recently changed our pin code to our garage door. After doing so, our remotes no longer work. I though the remotes were synchronized to the frequency of the opener itself and that the pin code should not have effected the remotes. Help.

These remotes don't loose the programming code when a battery goes dead, most likely the remote or the board on the opener went bad, do any other remotes work? You can take the remote to an auto parts store and test it there. (They have a tester for key fobs)
You cannot change codes. If you erase all the codes from the memory and then reprogram everything you will be right back where you were. If you want to eliminate one remote so that it no longer will work with your unit you can locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. Press and hold this for 6 seconds. Now none of your remotes will work. To program it for your remotes you need to hold the button on a remote while you press and immediately release the smart/learn button. Do this for each remote.
Here are the directions to program your hardwired keypad.
First unplug the garage door opener from the electrical outlet. Next remove the nameplate from the console that the keypad plugs into and locate the program/operate switch. Flip the switch to program. Next, enter your desired four-digit PIN number into the keypad. Slide the switch back to operate and plug the garage door opener back in. The keypad should be programmed.
You might possibly have held the smart/learn button in too long and erased the code for the remote. Hold the button down on the remote and then press and immediately release the smart/learn button. This should program it for the remote. Now make sure the keypad is still working.
Open the back of the remote, change the order of the pin switches inside your remote. Then Go to receiver box ( on back on Motor) Open name plate to locate your learn button, Push the learn button, an LED light comes on for 30 seconds. During the 30 seconds, push the button on the remote and you are done
UNPLUG THE UNIT AND WAIT 5 MIN.
WHEN YOU PLUG IT BACK IN CLAER ALL CODES BY HOLDING DOWN THE PROGRAM BUTTON FOR 20 SECONDS.
NOW TRY TO PROGRAM EACH REMOTE AND KEYPAD - IF THERE IS STILL A PROBLEM CHANGE THE BATTERIES AND REPEAT THIS PROCEDURE.
Hi, The opener, remotes and keypads have a set of dip switches that you can use to change the code. You will find the switches when you open the remotes and keypad and are in the back cover ( depending on the model) of the opener itself. Make sure that the codes of all the switches are set exactly the same. If you need additional help let me know! Good Luck.

You need to sync both. I have a LiftMaster. If you want to change the code on your keypad you need to open up the garage door motor compartment where the light is (mine is in the back). Press the learn button, within 30 seconds enter the new code on your keypad and hold down the enter button for several seconds until the light on the opener blinks to tell you it has learned the code. Test the new code to see if it works. If the new keypad code works, then try the remote. My remote will not work after I reprogram the keypad. If the remote does not work (check battery) then climb back up the ladder and press the learn button on the garage door motor again, press the remote button and hold down until the light blinks again and the opener has learned the new code. This process works when I need to sync my remote and keypad. Good luck, I hope this helps.
