Easy, just hook up the second opener (button) like you did the first one, i.e, connect the two wires on the same place you did the first opener. The light will also illuminate. I did this when I first installed the garage door opener and really like the idea. I'm sure you will too.

What could be the problem with garage door opener?

Many openers have a short length of wire that serves as a primitive antenna; ensure the wire is hanging free.

The remote is a radio frequency transmitter, the other end in the garage has a tuned receiver.
Either one of these can drift from their original operating frequency which then can cause the system to fail.

Most modern openers are encoded so that they can resist operating with CBs and amateur radio signals and most require a one-time operation that allows the inside receiver to recognize (and remember) its dedicated remote by its frequency and the unique code the remote produces.

While this principle makes openers more secure, it also allows for more failures of the type you are having.

Take a look at the manuals available at the following site to see is there is one close enough to your model number to let you restore the programming between remote and receiver:

We tried to program an old chamberlain remote to our new craftsman opener through the door console--now the door console does not work--we reprogrammed the keyless entry and car remotes with the main unit...

The door control does not require programming. Make sure one of the wires hasn't come loose and also try loosening the top screw on the door control. If it is too tight it can cause a problem.

Older model keyless will not open new craftsman garage opener.

inside or on the back of the opener motor housing or sometimes on a remote receiver (an external box connected to the motor unit and a push button) is a set of switches ... if you take your opener apart you should also see a set of switches ... those have to be set the same way as the opener ... thats the code select ... make sure the battery is ok .. you can check with sears to see if your older remote is compatable ..

Craftsman remote

After you use the keyless if you press any button while the light on the keyless is still working the operator will run.
If that is not the issue try:
Clear all the codes in the operator. (push and hold the learn button @ 20 sec. LED will go off) reprogram each of your remotes including your keyless.

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.
