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

1 Answer

Code Remote and other remotes do not all work at the same time.

I have a craftsman garage door opener. I can program both remotes and the car button. Then I have a remote opener that mounts outside the garage somewhere you put a 4 digit code into that should also open the door. I can get the car one and the 2 other remotes working but then when I program the code one the car and other remote ones quit working. Then I re program all of the remote ones the code one quits working. I have attempted several times to re program all and can't seem to get them all working. Either the remote ones work and the code one does not or the code one will work and the remote ones don not.

    No the one, keypad I have should work with the opener. It will work on its own. Just can't get them all to work at the same time.

Either your keypad has reverted to an earlier technology and will no longer work properly with your opener or you have the wrong keypad. Either way take the model number off the main unit and get the correct keypad.

Programing garage door opener


Hold the button on the remote and press and immediately release the smart/learn button. Do this for each of your remotes.

For the keypad press and immediately release the smart/learn button. Walk over to your keypad and key in your 4 digit code and press enter.

If these instructions don't work you have a bad logic board.

Make sure you are programming it like this. Press and hold the button on the remote and then press and immediately release the smart/learn button. Do this for each remote.

This problem was exposed on a popular news program some ten years ago. There's a number code inside the remote that you have to change, and set the garage door opener to the same code. It should solve the problem.

Cannot re-program remote transmitters for garage door opener


If both remotes quit at or about the same time then it is most likely the receiver that has quit. Especially if you have had electrical storms in the area. The receiver is part of your logic board.

Can not program both keypad & remote to operate at the same time


One of your units has reverted from "rolling code" to "billion code" and as you have found they will each work but will not work with each other. The problem is finding out which unit reverted. The most common one is the hand remote but that could be wrong.

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!!!!

Remote missing on old dominator garage door opener


This is the most complicated way I know of coding a remote and I am a tech. who does this all the time.
Turn power off. Wait 3 sec's & turn back on. Quickly press program button on back of box twice. Lights will flash, bottom light will stay on. Press program button twice, & No. 3 light will start flashing. Press and hold your remote button until light stops flashing. Code will be accepted.

I CAN NOT PROGRAM MY BUILT IN CAR REMOTE ON MY NEW 139.53985DM


didnt try everything cause if you did, it would work! Get two people and garage door opener. One read manual from car under Garage door" or Homelink while other pushes button. When manual says if this did not work or if you have security plus or rolling code, continue with other instructions. You will need a working remote and will need to pushh learn button on motor logic board.
