How Do I Program My Garage Door Remote?

Although many modern garage door opener brands offer remote control functionality for their garage door models, the essential concepts of programming the devices are pretty similar. Whether you are replacing a broken remote on your own or contracting a professional garage door repair company, it would be helpful to have a guideline on how to program a garage door opener remote.

You can follow the instructions below to sync your new clicker to your garage door opener remotely.

Getting Started

First, find out if your remote works with a DIP(Dual Inline Package) switch or rolling code technology.

Programming Remotes With DIP Switch Codes

DIP switches work with older garage door openers. You can find DIP switches on the remote control, generally around the battery section. All you have to do is access them below the sliding cover. They typically resemble a short series of 8- 12 switches housed in a single compact enclosure. It is worth noting that these might be slide or on/off switches that rock(rocker switches).

The programming process aims to match the sequence of your controller’s switches with the receiver at the rear of the motorhead or mounted nearby.

Once those patterns match, and you’ve confirmed that the garage door is clear of any obstructions, click on the button that controls your garage door from your remote controller. When you do so, your door should move in the same manner to match the switch’s alignment.

What To Do If Your Door Doesn’t Move

You should closely look at the housing enclosing your controller in case your door doesn’t move. Note that some product manufacturers position their switches inversely. Therefore, you’ll need to flip all remote switches to the other direction to retest your controller.

Programming Remotes With Rolling Passcodes

For protection, modern remote controllers use the rolling codes technology, which makes their programming straightforward. However, they have various configuration features. You should therefore read the user manual that comes with your controller carefully before beginning the process.

Nonetheless, these steps are universal across most remote controllers in the market today.

 

  1. Find the “Learn” button on your remote.
  2. Get up your ladder cautiously to where you can access the bottom of your garage door opener device with the controller in your hand. After that, take out what encloses the lens to reach the Learn button (mostly purple or orange in colours).
  3. Check your garage door opener manual for a better graphic representation if you can’t still find the learn button.
  4. Once you locate the ‘learn’ button, press it to blink.
  5. When the light flashes in the opener, click on your controller’s ‘open’ button.
  6. You have a 30 second time limit to finish pairing your garage door and the remote controller.
  7. While most remotes pair instantly, you should give the procedure a minute to conclude. After that, check your garage door by pressing the ‘open’ key on your remote once again. You shall have successfully configured your controller if it unlocks.

My old garage door opener failed on Saturday afternoon. I called Titan Garage Doors in Coquitlam and was amazed to... learn that they could have someone available to look at it that day. Technician Adam was at my door shortly after 6:00 pm. An hour and a half later, I had a brand new opener installed, the spring rebalanced, and door joints lubricated. I was very pleased with the prompt and professional service. Titan will be my “go to” for all of my garage door needs going forward.read more

One of our two, relatively new, garage door springs broke after about 5 years. So googled and found Titan Garage Doors... to fix it. They turned up same day within 1.5 hours to fix it. Alex, the technician was a super nice and super skillful guy, and it was obvious he had done the job countless times. He had to work in cramped conditions because the cars were struck in the garage, but he did a great job. The final price for two new springs was C$420 including tax. I'm only taking a star off because the person on the phone initially -- not Alex -- said a different price range; $150 to $250 ish. They must replace pairs of springs all day long... so why not just quote the real prices charged over the phone? Summary: Loved Alex. Hated the phone person in retrospect.read more

My garage door spring snapped. Called these guys first thing in the morning. When the mechanic arrived 30 minutes... later, I was anticipating getting ridiculous quote like those locksmith scam (paid $260 for 1 minute of job because locksmith knows you are desperate about getting locked out). Later I realized garage door repair isn’t the same as locksmith. I was given a reasonable quote for one hour of labour and it includes the price of the spring. After the mechanic got the door fixed, I was able to pay by credit card and was given a receipt. And on top of that, there is warranty for their repair work. I hope I don’t have to called them any time soon, but if I have to I will. Highly recommended.read more

Very prompt service. The technician, Eli, was pleasant, courteous and professional. He assessed the problem that we... were having with our garage door opener, opened the unit up and showed me the parts that had failed. Upon my approval of his price quotation, he went to work replacing the defective/failed part which I was pleased to find out that he carried in his vehicle. Very happy with the experience and highly recommend this technician and the company.read more

I would NOT recommend this company! We called Titan to come and do a service, maintenance and any necessary repair on... our garage door. The technician showed up, spent maybe 10 minutes at our place, balanced the door, took his $120 bucks and basically that was it. We asked if there was anything else that needed to be done and we were told no. Our installer arrived the next day and we were told that some of the rollers and hinges would need to be replaced prior to the installation of our new garage door opener. We were not told by Titan that any of this needed to be done. Titan returned the next day to give us a quote for the rollers and hinges... They quoted $40 dollars for each hinge, and $15 per roller. We have 12 hinges/rollers! At this rate, we'd be better off buying a whole new door! We had another company come in and replace only what was broken for a fraction of the cost and they did an amazing job I would not recommend this company, unless you have money to burn and want to overspend!read more

I am very happy with the service. Adam from Titan Doors did a great job fixing my garage door. He found the problem... right away (broken spring) and replaced the part quickly which he already had with him. Arrived within half an hour of me calling at 9 in the morning and fixed it all before 11am! Garage opens smoother and quieter than it did before! Thank you!!read more
