Thanks for your help!
1. I use either the wall button or the keyless entry pad to close the door.
Dave Yes, opening the door works from all devices.
ThanksThat is an interesting situation as the Keyless entry can close the door but no remotes.That rules out a safety sensor situation.Now, when you "re learned" the remotes, did you erase all memory on the opener and then setup the 2 remotes and the keypad again?If not, just trying to redo the remotes without memory erasure actually did not "relearn them" because they are already in the memory.Many times a clearing and then adding everything back as new clears up problems such as this.Only add 1 remote and do the testing prior to adding another of the keyless pad.Just post if this is the way you already tried.
What is the Make and Model of the opener?
Okay, back now. I did a full system reset and then re-learned one remote. It works fine inside the garage, but when I get about 15 feet away from the opener, it quits working. I re-learned the keypad, and it works fine. It's about 15 feet from the opener as well. The wire hangs down in a spiral from the opener, and it's been that way since it was installed. How do we determine if it's the opener (base unit) or the remotes? I guess I could unscrew the keyless pad from the wall and take it further away to see if it still works, but I'm not sure if it's meant to work beyond 15 feet or so.
Eureka! One of my opener bulbs had burned out, so I put in two new LED bulbs. I removed them, and both car remotes work flawlessly now. Thanks a million, Tommy!
You too, Tommy!
