Another Craftsman Remote Problem

Posted by moocow (My Page) on

Please help,

I have a 2003 Craftsman 1/2 HP GDO. The previous home owner installed it and I have did not receive the user's manual and was given only 1 remote. My father (who just recently installed 2 Craftsman GDO's at his home) tried to program his remote to open my door. Unfortunately, the outcome was not what we desired and now none of the remotes work, nor does my car homelink work. I have tried to follow the directions on the back of the door opener to reprogram and reset the codes, etc., but to no avail. I know that the GDO is receiving a signal from the remote because the green light on the back blinks when I hit the remote button. The GDO also works properly using the "door bell" wired to the GDO. Do you have any suggestions?

Beth try this. Press and hold the learn button on the back of the opener for 6 seconds. This will erase it's memory and you will be right where you are now. None of the remotes will work. Now, press and hold the button down on your remote and then press and immediately release the learn button on the opener. Let me know how this works and if you need help programming your cars homelink. Oh and by the way, your Dads remotes may not work with your opener.
