One of my garage door remotes was stolen in a burglary yesterday.

Customer Question

One of my garage door remotes was stolen in a burglary yesterday. How can I reprogram the other one? The system is an Electrolift G5446. It only has one small red button on the actual opener unit and there is no indicator light.

Hi Terri........how old is the unit ?............do you have a manual for it ?..........do you have a square learn button on your opener?........usually it is under the lens cover..............you would press and hold that for 6 seconds ...........if you have another remote or a key less entry they should not be working that is how you would tell..........if you need help programming let me knowThankseddie

I don't know how old the unit is...it was here when I moved in. I do not have a manual. The only button is a small, round red button on the back of the unit.

There is no square learn button. I don't have a keyless entry and the burglar has the other remote...I'm hoping he doesn't come back to give it a try before I can change my remote.
