1 Answer

Recently i replaced the battery to my keyless pad and i was succesful in re-programming it. The problem that i am having now is the garage door will not move when i enter the new programmed number on the keypad. As soon as i enter the code i programmed on the keypad, the lights flahes on the pad but the garage door does not open. Please help. I need to have some repairs done at my home this week, and this will give the repair technicians access to my home.

You need to reprogram. Press and release the Learn button and within 20 seconds type in 4 digit code and press and hold enter. The light on the opener should flash once or click if you have no light bulb. This should solve your problem

Need to reset/re-program it as specified in the user manual. When the keypad loses power during the battery change it loses the original settings and need to be reprogrammed. New keyless pad also need to be programmed to link with the receiver.

You can try programming it but first make sure the battery is good. 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 any 4 digit code you like and press enter.

Trouble with programing garage remotes and keyless entry pad


Either the keypad is the wrong model for your opener or it has reverted to an earlier technology and needs to be replaced. It is important that you get the model number off your motor unit so you can be sure you get the right keypad for your opener.

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.

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.
