Homelink/Chamberlain opens wrong door sometimes

heimertMay 12, 2008

I have set up my car's homelink visor buttons with my Chamberlain garage door opener. Button 1 for one door, button 2 for the other. Same in wife's car. Her's works fine. On mine, button 1 sometimes opens door 1 and sometimes opens door 2. I already tried clearing memory and starting over and the problem remains (it's occasional not constant). Any ideas?

Does it work properly when it is programmed to open only one door? Maybe that will solve your problem.

Don -- I gave that a try, and thought it was the problem. I thought *maybe* pressing button 1 was also pressing button 2.

But, no. I deprogrammed door 2 and button 2. But Button 1 opens Door 1 and Door 2, now seemingly all the time. It's like they've gotten on to the same codes, even though surely that's a 1 in 1mil happening.

Follow-up, FWIW.

Called HomeLink. The trick is to reset the opener itself, not the remote or the car. Apparently once a button is programmed to activate an opener you can't deactivate it except by resetting the opener--reprogramming the Homelink button won't solve it nor will resetting/clearing the Homelink unit.
