Outdoor keypad frequently doesnt work

Punch in codes on outside keyless pad, wont open unless i try it many many times. Seems worse in colder weather. Checked battery and it is fine. This is a Liftmaster unit. Has two doors with separate codes. Same issue for both.

    Problem started about four days ago. At first, the numbers on they keypad would still light up, but the garage door wouldn't open. Then there was nothing. I replaced the battery and still nothing. Any suggestions?

IF REPLACING THE BATTERY DOESN'T DO IT YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE KEYPAD.

NOTE: (IF YOU HAVE A ROLLING CODE SYSTEM) YOU WILL NEED TO REPROGRAM THE UNIT AFTER YOU CHANGE THE BATTERY.

HOPE THIS IS HELPFULL

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.

Just bought a new PD210DM opener but still have


I don't know this model. (in australia). the chamberlains here are probably the same. the 4 digit code you first put in the keypad is what you have to use. push the learn button on your operator then punch in your 4 digit No. Hold the enter button on your keypad until the light flashes on the operator.
That should code it in.

How can I reprogram my keyless pad?


If you mean wireless keypad it is like this. Locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. Press and immediately release this and then walk over to your keypad and key in your 4 digit code and press enter.

Craftsman outside keypad


On the back panel of the opener itself is a small pushbutton. Press the button and the indicator near it will light. While the indicator is lit, enter the new 4-digit code on your keypad and it will be set. (You are actually programming the receiver with the new code this way. The wireless keypad doesn't store a code.) The programming light goes off on its own.

Outside garage door key pad will not function in very cold weathe


Yes, that is an issue.  My suggestion is to replace the outside keyless with a wired keyless (Domino GD-1).  This will get your batteries inside so they can stay warm.
