Neighbors in car remote opens my garage door.

I own a craftsman 139.53515SR garage door opener. My neighbors is a overhead. I have repeatedly changed the codes on my opener and handhelds, her in car remote picks up our signial everytime. Even if she is gone when I change it. I have tried erasing, unplugging, reprograming so only the original remote works and still hers works for mine.

Does your system have a radio conversion on it? If it does not, you may need to think about doing that. If you have the original radio system on this opener (where the little dip switches determine the coding) then it's just time to consider the conversion because the radio has failed.

If you have the type of radio where there is a learn button to do the programming then make sure to clear the codes and then try programming. If you've tried that already then the radio may have just failed.

Let me know a little bit more about the radio and we'll see what it looks like and go from there.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!
