Ok crystal,calm down this is an easy one! first locate the smart button on your openers , next you will press and hold down the smart button until you see an indicator light above it shut off, while your holding that button the light will be solid ,Now your ready to program your remotes ,first programm one side by taking each of your four remotes and pressing the smart button on machine then pressing the button on the remote you want to program,by doing that you will notice the lightbulbs on your machine shut off and go back on , This is an indicator that your machine has accepted the code , now do it with the other three remotes , after you,ve programmed all four ,go over to the other machine and repeat the process but this time you have to choose another button on your remotes since you,ve programmed all four remotes to the same button on each remote ,just choose the bottom button on your remotes this time to keep them seperated , hope this helps you and it is as easy as 1-2-3 your owners manual will describe exactly the same ,i know because i,ve installed over 27,000 machines working as an installer for sears, please leave a nice feedback rating if i was able to help you, good luck,Sincerely Glenn Mayer

START BY CLEARING ALL THE CODES ON BOTH DOORS. - HOLD DOWN THE SQUARE PROGRAM BUTTON ON THE POWERHEAD FOR ABOUT 30 SECONDS.
NOW PROGRAM 1 BUTTON ON A REMOTE TO DOOR #1 IF YOU HAVE 3 BUTTON REMOTES YOU CAN PROGRAM ANOTHER BUTTON TO THE OTHER DOOR.

YOU CANNOT PROGRAM MORE THAN 4 REMOTES PER OPENER

HOPE THIS IS HELPFULL

Ken, you may have to reprogram transmitter after battery change, check your manual, if you do not have manual, Google search your make and model# manual.

Programming remote and in car garage door openers to the Craftsman AssureLink Garage Door opener - Model - 139.3043


The opener radio is not compatible with your homelink system. You need to buy a homelink repeater. Note: liftmaster and chaimberlain are the same, so if you see a reference to one of those names when searching for the repeater, dont worry, it'll work. As far as the second remote, check batteries. Then try programing again, using yellow button on the opener. Lastly, you can reset the programming and start over if all else fails. Hold down yellow button until light on button turns off. Good luck.

How do I program the garage door opener?


You post again, what the model is of the opener, the car model, it looks like this control is in a car.

Most times you need the garage door remote, then you have to hold a button and the remote button to sync the two.

What ever you are trying to program, if this is a car, you need the manual.


If you need more help, you need to post the model number of everything.


Not every car, every opener is the same at programing.

Imagine that, life simple.

Lost remote. i want to know if there is any way to clear the codes so the orig. remote dont work any more.


Locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit. Hold that button in for 6 seconds. No remotes will work at this time as the memory is erased. Now you need to program the remotes you have.

Where to buy remote control and reset My garage door opener also


To erase the memory of the opener so that your old remote will no longer work you need to locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit. Press and hold this button for 6 seconds. No remotes will now work.

To program the new remote when you get it, hold the button down on the remote and then press and immediately release the smart/learn button.

Call any local door opener repair company from the yellow pages and you should be able to buy a remote from them.

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.

How can I program a craftsman remote for my door


THE OTHER BUTTONS ARE FOR ADDITIONAL DOORS.

CHECK THE FREQ. (FREQUENCY) IF YOUR NEW REMOTE IS NOT THE SAME FREQ. IT WILL NOT WORK - YOU WILL NEED TO GET ONE THAT HAS THE SAME FREQ.. - THEY ARE AVAILABLE FROM YOU LOCAL GARAGE DOOR DEALER.

HOPE THIS HELPS

NOTE: THE FREQ. IS ON THE BACK OF THE REMOTE AND NEAR THE PROGRAM BUTTON ON THE POWERHEAD - THEY CHANGED FREQ A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO.

Door opener remotes not opening garage door.


You have to sync the remotes to the new code. For older remotes, you can open the remote and match the pin settings.

For newer remotes there's a button that you push in the back of the opener that sets in program mode (for Chamberlain). When you push the remote button, it will acknowledge the remote is programmed.

If this doesn't help, comment back on your particular model and we'll help you with the solution.
