Changing codes completely

Input the four-digit code on your wall control and press enter. The LED light will go off or blink to indicate that it has been programmed. For your remote, press and release the learn button. Within 30 seconds, press and hold the remote button that you would like to use for three seconds. The LED light will go off to indicate that the programming has been complete.

3. Test. Wait for 10 seconds to test out your code. Just enter the new code and wait for the garage door opener to activate.
