How do I make my remote for my garage door opener operate both my new garage door opener and my older garage door opener?

by Manage My Life Last activity date:

My home has 2 garage doors, and last week I replaced one of the garage door openers with the new Craftsman AssureLink Internet ¾ HP (model number 139.3043). After installing it, I programed the remote and it works. Then, using the same remote I went to program my older Craftsman ¾ garage door opener (model 139.53997D) and I was not able to complete the function. So, I tried to program the older remotes to control the new garage door and again I was not able to complete this task. I was however able to problem the older remotes to open and close the older garage door and I was able to program the new remotes to open and close the new garage door. BUT I don’t want to carry 2 remotes in each car. I would like to be able to program 1 remote to open and close both my new garage door and older garage door openers.

Second question, on the new garage door, when I press the learn button the yellow lite says lit. If I press it again then the yellow lite blinks, finally if I press it a third time it goes off. What is happening when the yellow lite is blinking?

To get one remote to open both the new and the old garage door openers, you will need to buy a new Craftsman universal remote. The part number of the universal remote is 139.30498. This remote will operate your old and new openers.

When the yellow led is blinking after 2 presses, it is in a programming mode that is not currently being used. This will be used for further programming to be done with the gateway. The technology is not currently being used.

The radio frequency was changed in 2005 and your openers are most likely on different frequencies. They will not work with one another. Always parking in the same garage is one solution.
