Syncing garage door opener with keyless keypad and car

by Manage My Life Last activity date:

I have a Craftsman Garage Door Opener (Model # 139.53962SRT1) which is about 10 years old. I recently purchased a new car and wanted to have the ability to open the garage door using the car's own garage door opening buttons. I could not find the remote that went with the original garage door opener so I went to Sears the other day and purchased a new remote. I was able to "teach" the new remote by pushing the red button on my garage door opener. I then took the remote into my car and "taught" the car. The car was able to open the garage door by pushing the button that came with the car. The only problem is that by doing this, I somehow knocked out the abilty for the keyless keypad entry to work. When I went back to "teach" the keyless keypad, I got that to work but then the car remote and the Sears remote stopped working. The manual does not address how all these things sync in tandem. Can you tell me what I am doing wrong? I had hoped to be able to also program a second car and then give the remote to the driver of a third car. Thank you for your help.

Try clearing out all of the remote codes and starting over. To clear the codes, press the "learn" button on the back of the main opener unit and hold it down until the LED next to it goes out (about 4 seconds). Now, only the wall control should operate the door. Go through the procedure to program in the handheld remote and the car remote, then see what happens when you program in the keypad device. If the keypad device causes the car to not work then most likely the keypad device has failed.

Let me know what you find.
