    I just installed a new chamberlain keyless entry pad. I thought the old 10 year old craftsman pad was bad. I went through all set up instructions and keypad works fine. Now I can't get either of my car remotes to work. I tried clearing all codes by pushing red button smart/learn button on door opener and can still only get either the keypad or the car remote to work, but not both. Any suggestions?

Ok you need to reset the code on your keypad? Or put a new code in. Well ill tell you how to do both. Before you start make sure you have all the remotes with you. to clear the keypad you have to delete all the codes for all the remotes (No there is no other way :-/) To do this there is a little red button on your opener its self not the remote. Press and hold it till the light goes out.(apox 6-8 sec) Try one of the remote they should not work. Now to set everything back up. Press the red button again just once DONT NOT HOLD IT. a little ambered color light will come on and flash then press the remote untill you hear a click and the lights on the open should flash once. Repaet that for each remote. Ok now to set up your keypad press the red button again go to your keypad and type in your code and hold enter till you see the lights flash on the opener. Then type in your code again to make sure it worked. If you just wanted to program a new code for your keypad then just do that last step

I have a Craftsman keyless gargage door opener model 031D0431. We just moved in and would like directions on how to recode the keyless entry. One more question...if I recode the keyless entry, do I have...

Coding the keypad will not affect the remotes if you follow these directions.

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 a four digit code and press enter.

I have the 1/2 horsepower opener with the green (Sears)

Sometimes the sensors will be aligned closely enough that the logic board will turn on the receiving units light but it will act like yours. If you look real close at the light you will see that it is flickering ever so lightly. Tweak the sensor so the light is on steady.

Keyless remote will not learn new 4 digit code

Press and immediately release the smart/learn button and walk over to the keypad and key in your 4 digit code and press enter. If this doesn't do the job your keypad is probably bad.

Reset Craftsman keyless entry pad.

What you are asking for is not possible. You need to call a garage door repair technician. They will drill a hole through the door and using a special tool can pull the rope to release the door.

I have a craftsman garage door opener,i also bought a craftsman.

some door openers have a limited memory or a maximum number of remotes allowed this is usually 5-8 total entries. I works this way as you enter a device is progams into slot 1 on the memory then the next entry goes into memory 2 etc. if you exceed the number of memory slots then hte 1st one will be omited. You may have overridden your keyless if you have multiple remotes plus you car(s) may exceed your limit or you had several attempts with the keypad that used up the available slots. I recommend you try to reset the remotes now that you have successfully programed the keyless. If you find that reprogramming the remotes knocks out the new key pad then repeat the steps with all the remotes in sequence one after another. good luck

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.

Sears craftsman keyless entry for model 139.53684

If I am correct, there is a green button on the opener. Hold that down until it stop blinki ng. Once it has, pres the opener. It should read the code and work the next time you hit the opener remote.
If not, sorry. This has worked for me
