Sears wireless garage door opener

My wireless control unit will not function. I have tried to reset the code but when I press and hold the enter buton after pressing the learn button the lights do not blink to tell me the code has been learned.
The learn button blinks five times and pauses for about ten seconds and continues all the time. When I press the learn button to set the code it stays on for the 30 seconds it is supposed to but then goes back to the blinking and pause described above.

The blinking code indicates a problem with the opener. Are your wall button or remotes working properly?

yes, everything works except the wireless unit.
I unplugged the unit and the blinking stopped. I then removed the wireless unit from the outside and tried to program it from inside the garage. I was able to make it work if I held the wireless unit very close to the antenna, but it would not work from outside.

Have you replaced the battery in the keypad?

Yes, and just for good measure I checked the battery I repalced and the new one and they both were in the good.

I have to think your keypad has gone bad. Do you have a neighbor you can try it on?

I thought that might be the problem. I'll see if I can find someplace to test it and if it doesn't work, I'll buy a new one.

Thanks for your help!
