Is this a Lutron Maestro? Check your breakers to see if any are tripped, otherwise the dimmer needs to be replaced. The internal transformer has blown most likely

The directional lights on my TT stopped working this week. The lights will flash once and then stop. Anyone have a clue why this would happen?

The hazard switches on some Audi models includes a relay for the turn signals. This was true on my Allroad and A6, but I haven't needed to replace on my TT yet. Part is easy to replace, but about 50 to 75 dollars.

My lift-master garage opener works just fine from wall button, but will only open but not close from any remotes (from car or original remotes) If I open it with remote and immediately close with wall...

We have the same model and similar difficulties. We were told it's a bad antena. Not sure if there is anything we can do about this. Sometimes it works with the remotes, sometimes not. Always works with the wall switch, because that's wired.

The green light on the wall switch is blinking constantly yet it works to open/close the door. The remote does not work. Any suggestions?

Press and hold the lock button on the wall control for 3 seconds. The light will stop blinking and your remotes will work.

I have an older model, say 15 years, Chamberlain Liftmaster 32555LM 1/2 HP Garage door opener and everything works but the wall mounted button behind the white plastic square window. The little green...

The lighted switch is powered by the opener itself. This has the handy feature that, if the light is on, you know you're connected to the opener.

You're seeing the opposite -- no light, which means no connection, which means the button doesn't activate the opener.

There should only be two wires going from the opener to the wall switch, and they're typically 22 or 26 GA solid wires, like telephone wiring.

Given the age of your system, odds are good that one of the wires has broken off at one of the ends -- either inside the wall switch or at the back of the opener. If that's the case, just strip off a little more insulation and screw the wire down again.

If you don't see anything broken, then try this:
When you have the wall switch open and you're looking at the wires, try shorting them with a screwdriver (or just touch the wires together for a moment)
They're low voltage (24V) so you won't get a shock from them.
Shorting them should activate the opener, just as if you'd pressed the button.
If that works, but the light is still not coming on, then you've just got a broken switch. Most hardware stores or home-improvement stores will sell you a replacement for a very low price. Truth be told, you can also just put a doorbell switch on there -- they're based on the same voltage/light/switch system.

How to dissable a pre-existing dimmer switch

You don't want to disassemble the dimmer ... you want to remove the dimmer and replace it with a toggle switch

Get a switch at the hardware store or at the big box place. You only need a standard wall toggle switch - color to suit your taste ... gray, ivory, white, brown or red usually. Expect to pay less than $3.00 and maybe as little as 75 cents.

It is simple ...

turn off the power to the light at your circuit panel.

Remove the knob (pull it off) - remove two little screws that hold the cover plate on. There may be a nut under the knob ... remove it (leftie - loosie -- righty - tighty)

Remove the two screws that hold the dimmer in the box,

Pull the dimmer out.

loosen the screws that hold the wires onto the dimmer ... you may have wire nuts holding the wires together. if so, remove them

set the dimmer aside.

you should be working with two black wires in the wall. What ever is attached to the dimmer is the wires you will be using. It does not make any difference which colored wire goes on which brass screw - more below - except the green ... the green goes only on the ground screw.

put one wire from the wall on one brass screw

put the other wire from the wall on the other brass screw.

put the bare wire (or green wire) on the green screw on the switch frame.

arrange the wires behind the switch and screw two screws into the wall box ... make sure the switch is straight.

put the cover on -- two screws ...

turn on the power.

If you have more question, attach to this post.

Thanks for using

I think I've accidentally activated the lock feature...

does logic board on motor have a small pushbutton or dip slide switches? If pushbutton, push it for 10 seconds. let do. panel light stop blinking? Unit somehow got into lock mode, even though you do not have lock button. If this has stopped light from blinking, you now have to code remotes and or keypad back in. Push the little buton for 1 second and push a remote. Light bulbs on unit should blink. Take next remote (or keypad) and repeat this sequence for each one. Let me know. If you have safety beams, liftmaster should help you. w/o beams they will not support.
