My garage door opener will work using the button on the wall in the garage, but the remote for the car will not work. I have changed the battery and still does not work. How do I determine if my problem is in the remote or the operator? Classic Drive Model 3012.
First try resetting your opener by unplugging the opener power head from the wall outlet. Wait 2 minutes and plug back in. Try your remote controls.
If that doesn't work try to reprogram your remote control to the power head using the steps below:
Programming Transmitter to Power Head Unit
Press the PROGRAM button located on the garage door motor head unit once. The PROGRAM STATUS light on the motor head unit will turn on and remain lit for one minute, indicating that it is ready to learn the Transmitter code.
Press the button on transmitter. The PROGRAM STATUS light will turn off indicating a successful learn.
Press the same button on the Transmitter once more to operate the door.
If you are unsuccessful in programing the transmitter to the motor head unit or if the button does not operate the door you probably have a faulty motor control board. A replacement board is found on this webpage: Wayne Dalton Classic Drive Control Board
