Customer Question

Customer: I'm trying to program a new remote with three buttons. I've completed the steps you described in an earlier reply. However, When I pushed the remote the third time the motor head came on solid then blinked three times rapidly. The remote still does not work. I did change the remote to the Intellicode1 before I started. Any suggestions? The ultimate plan is to program my 2015 Subaru Legacy Homelink.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: The motor head was previously programmed for a Honda Odyssey and the original remotes stopped working but were replaced with the new remotes that work another door.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Consumer Electronics Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: sure. Your $18 is still cheaper than Lowe's new opener.
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Sorry but working with another customer..

How many remotes in total will there be on this unit as it takes a maximum of seven I think

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I understand. That is a concern. I'm afraid over the years we've likely programmed that many. There should just be the Subaru, the wall button, and perhaps one more. I've not had a hand held remote for years because my Honda was programmed back in 06.

You can delete all and start again... You will need all the remotes there to learn them in after...

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I've tried that also. When I did that is when the motor head would light solidly then flash3 times rapidly

You might have a faulty receiver by the sounds...

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Is that ghee motor head or the remote?
