Question about Sears Craftsman LiftMaster Chamberlain Garage Door Opener Wireless Keypad Model 976LM Security+

Remote/homelink and touchpad problem

Hi. I have the Chamberlin openers (2 of them). I also have remotes, and a keypad mounted outside. Finally, I have homelink in every one of (3 of them) my cars.Here's the problem I have. I can either get the keypad to work, or my remote transmitters to work, but not both of them. It seems that when I program the touch pad, my remote stops working, but the touchpad works fine. If I program the remote (and subsequently the homelink in the cars), then the remotes and homelink transmitters work, but not the touch pad. Please help!!!

    I have a Lift Master garage door openner and a Clicker brand wireless keypad mounted outside the garage door. I can either have the keypad work, or the HomeLink function in my car work but not both. What gives?

Your keypad is not the same "generation" as your remotes. You operator will work with your security plus remotes or your old keypad but not both. Yor cheapest solution is to replace your keypad.

How do I program a 2004 Ford Explorer (Eddie Bauer edition) automatic garage door opener?


Download the owners manual in PDF, and search for homelink. The instructions are somewhat long, so this would be an easier route.

URL for Ford's PDF version of owners manuals :
https://www.fleet.ford.com/maintenance/owners_manuals/default.asp

The outline is train a remote to the visor ( so the homelink gets the base code ) and then train the button on the homelink to the opener ( the visor has a different shared code, so it is a 2 step process ).

Takes about 5 min to do. Also make sure you do not have more than 6 remotes on the door you are programming, else it will push the 1st one off ( usually the case with Chamberlin, your mfgr could be more or less )

Craftsman 1/2hp garage opener Homelink must be under unit to work


Have you tired reprogramming the remotes to the opener?

The opener receiver board may have failed, which happens. You can order a new one from Sears or other places on the Internet, and they are fairly easy to replace.

Once replaced, you will need to program the receiver to you remotes again.

We have Craftsman 139.53684 gargage door opener with 2 remotes. Both remotes programmed and respond. Issue is after programming the 2 remotes, the homelink in the vehicles no longer respond. Can you not...


You must have an older vehicle or the homelink has reverted to an earlier technology and you will have exactly the situation you describe. You will just have to use the remotes that came with the opener.

Can i program homelink with out a remote


The only way to program Homelink without a garage door opener remote is if you have a keypad that allows access to your garage. I tried EVERYTHING and then realized I had the keypad which is wireless; I simply unscrewed the battery operated keypad from its location and held it 1"-3" from the Homelink buttons in my car. I then punched in my code and held the enter button on the keypad at the same time as the Homelink button I wished to program. It worked flawlessly. Good Luck!!!!

HomeLink works in vehicle... unable to program hand held or remot


When did your remote and keypad quit working? Was it when you programmed the Homelink? It sure sounds like you have a bad logic board.

I can not hook up Honda odissy 2007 Homelink system with LiftMast


Yes. But you need a remote transmitter that is programmed to open the Lift Master. Then you just follow the instructions in your home link and it should work.

Press the homelink outside 2 button at the same time and hold till fast blinking (all erased). Then press homelink button1 and hold while aiming the transmitter (2 inches away) and pressing appropriate button on the remote. Continue to hold both till fast flashing seed on the homelink. Release both. Then hold the next button on the homelink you want to program, aiming the remote again, and pressing and holding the appropriate button on the remote, until fast flashing, and then releasing again, ......

2 different openers stopped working by remote at the same time


Both the older genie and a newer chamberlain (3-4 yrs old) both run on 390Mhz frequency. sounds like you will have to change your receivers on both operators (365LM 315Mhz) then get 3 button remote so you can program both doors on one remote.
