YOU MOST LIKELY HAVE THE WRONG REMOTE.

THEY HAVE CHANGED THE FREQUENCY OF THE OPENERS.

BE SURE TO CHECK THAT THE REMOTE YOU PURCHESD WILL WORK WITH YOUR OPENER.

IF THE LED NEXT TO THE PROGRAM BUTTON FLICKERS WHEN YOU PRESS THE REMOTE - IT IS SENDING A SIGNAL.

HOPE THIS HELPS

About a remote for a garage door opener, how to program it.Bought a new remote and programmed it and now the old one don't work. How do you reprogram the old one?


The same way you programed the second one.
DO NOT hold the learn button down, just press it once and release it. Then press the button on the garage door remote and it will program to the garage door opener. Do the same for anything else you want to program to the garage door opener. When you hold the learn button down it erases all of the learned codes and you have to start over.

Where is the "learn" button on the garage door opener? We are trying to install a new remote opener to this 1145lm opener.


It's on the back of the motor. Press the learn then the remote button. You should hear it click and the light bulb should flash.

Try this method for programming. Press and hold the button down on the remote while you press and immediately release the learn button. Do this for each remote.

Have you replaced the battery in the keypad? Try this:

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 the keypad and key in any 4 digit code you like and press enter.

Post back with your results.

If the learn button is 'amber' the model 956 remote should work with it. Try this method for programming just in case your aren't.

Hold the button down on the remote while your press and immediately release the learn button. Main light should flash.

There is always the possibility that the receiver has quit working.

Genie Compact 3-Button Remote control will only open 1 door/not 2


On some of the remotes you will find a toggle switch to change frequencies, this might help. Note all new openers are operating on a different frequency than slightly older ones due to military interference. Even though both might be intellicode they might not work together on the same remote. Sometimes some openers are harder to program than others. So lets try to program the harder one. You need to find and press the learn button on the motor head. Then press the button on the remote once. The led light by the learn button should not flash. If so try it over. The light should either stay lit or go out after the first press. If it does press it again and then a third time. If it ever flashes during the program process try again. The third or fourth time the motor should operate. If not you either have a bad remote or more than likely a bed logic board. Thanks BB

Program garage door opener in 2005 rx 330


There are 3 programmable Homelink buttons you can use for different remotes. Just to the right of the buttons there is an indicator light.

Decide which button you want to program. Point the none battery end of your remote 1"-3" away from the Homelink panel and press both the remote and desired Homelink button down and hold them down at the same time. After about 20 seconds, the Homelink indicator light will change from a slow flashing to a rapid flashing. You can then release both buttons,
If the garage door responds to the Homelink, your done! If not, your garage door uses a rolling codes transmitter and must be trained.
Find the training button on your garage door opener's transmitter (usually mounted on the ceiling). Press the training button and within 30 seconds press and release the programmed Homelink button twice. If the garage door opener operates, you're done! If not, press and release the Homelink button a third time and the garage door should respond. If it still does not, you may have a very old garage door opener with a none digital transmitter (like I did). In that case, you either need to buy a new opener or try to replace the transmitter with a modern digital unit (as I did). Advantage: cheaper than a whole new garage door opener.
Disadvantage: The newer openers incorporate safety features that my old opener does not have.

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.

Setting garage door opener


Most openers are programmed the same. You normally program the house garage opener to accept the new remote. Your garage opener will have a button to press to add in a new remote. Normally you press this and then press the remote in the car and hold until your lights on your opener flash or the garage door closes. (check your manual on your garage door opener)
