Hi there,

You will need to reset and reprogram the car remote separately.

Please let me know the model number of the car remote so I can assist you further.

No this doesn't help. It's rental property; which means that every past tenant will always have access. There has got to be a way to clear all codes and reset the main opener so that no one can acces.

Any other suggestions?
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

Ok, so there is no way to change the remote in the vehicles at this point, however on most Craftsman Openers you can reset the garage door opener memory. Let me know the model number of the opener so I can assist you further.

The model is craftsman 41A-4315-7D

I've reset the garage door openers memory. By holding the learn button until light goes out. Repeated twice. Same results. Remotes won't open it but cars will.
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

41A-4315-7D is the model number for the circuit board of the garage door opener, not the model of the opener itself. I assume you have one of the 1/2 HP models.

You will need to clear or erase all previous codes, according to the procedure in your owner's manual.

Let me know the model number of the opener if you need further guidance on clearing the old codes.
