Let it sit for a day without the battery. Push all of the buttons on remote while battery less to discharge any and all caps.

If it still does not work with new batteries then the RC has gone to remote heaven and needs to be replaced as I had to do.

HomeLink works in vehicle... unable to program hand held or remot

When did your remote and keypad quit working? Was it when you programmed the Homelink? It sure sounds like you have a bad logic board.

Led light constantly stays on remote rcr4358

First off, put in brand new batteries. Not just batteries that are kind of new, i mean BRAND SPANKING NEW batteries right out of the packet.

If you still have a problem:

~hold down the DVD-VCR button-> the red led will stay lit.

~holding down the DVD-VCR button press the number 2 --> the red led will turn off

~Release the DVD-VCR button--> the red led blinks 4 times and turns off.
Hope that helps!

Change code on keyless entry. Now the remote does not work.

Did you clear the codes existing in the unit? (Press and hold the learn button; LED light will stay lit for approx. 6 seconds.) If you have remotes that have dipswitches, pop the battery cover off and make certain that all switches are set identically in each remote. Now, press the learn button on the main unit and immediately release. While its LED light is lit, press the button on ONE of the remotes only. They will ALL be programmed at this point. Now, press the learn button once more (quickly and release) and enter your number code on your keypad and press enter. It should be programmed now, too.
I was having a similiar problem, and this turned out to be the solution. Before, I was programming both remotes, not knowing as I did so that by programming one, and then another, I was UNprogramming the the first as well as the keypad.
I hope this works for you. It did for me.
