United-States Universal Garage Door Opener

O.K. I give up! How do you program the universal garage door opener? Before some helpful chap tells me to read the manual, I did that. Followed the directions. I believe I have a alternating frequency opener (SEARS Craftsman) and I've gotten to the point to where I have the fast flashing light when I press button one. How do I actually complete the process to get it to actually open the door now? I tried the press 3 times thing, but no dice. PLEASE HELP.

On mine, it wasn't an alternating code, but the doggone door just wouldn't open.

I finally opened a small panel on the side of the door opener and discovered a button there and additional instructions: you have to tell the garage door opener about each new remote, by pressing a button on the opener while pressing the button on the remote, i.e. the mirror, after you teach it the original remote's code.

Success - I programmed all three mirror buttons, just because I could! Had to program each button from the remote, then press each button while pressing the button on the opener - apparently, each button presents itself as a different new remote control.

I remember how frustrating it was when I programmed mine a few months back. My memory doesn't work like it once did so I can't tell you exactly what I did to get it the UGO working, but I do remember saying to my wife after walking in from the garage "Why do they bother to print these manuals?"

She just smiled. It was the youwantedamini smile.

You saved my butt. I was pulling my hair out and I was getting the youboughtthemini look that waterway4 mentioned from the wife. Checked the opener right after I read your message and there was the stupid button. I found out the procedure is follow the regular steps in the manual, then when the light flashes on the mirror, hit the learn button on the opener, then hit the button on the mirror again. Like magic, opens and closes the door.

You are the MAN.

Thanks again,

Manual is not straight forward, but the directions are not wrong. Follow the fixed directions, then follow the alternating instructions (which is what you guys inadvertently did) - it works. It would help if the manual referred to the button on the opener as the "LEARN" button, since that is what it is called.

OLDRICK - in spite of my paragraph above, I don't think I would have figured it out from the manual w/o reading your post - so thanks a bunch - I was among the ranks of the frustrated...

Universal garage door opener

Here is what happened to me and how I got it to work. I have a Genie garage door opener for what that matters.

The video doesn't mention a few things. I held down the first and third buttons until the LED blinked. I then pointed the remote control towards the mirror about 5 or six inches away and clicked and held down the button on the remote while I simultaneously held the first button on the mirror (my choice of button). The LED flashes slowly at first then quickly. Then I released both the remote control button and the mirror button.

Then I went to the garage door opener and pressed the "learn" button, went back to my car and again pointed the remote control simultaneously held down the first button on the mirror (the one previously chosen). The LED flashes slowly at first and then quickly. Then I let go of both button.

That's it. It learned and it programmed.

Hope this helps. If I think of anything else, I will add to it when I think of it. So it took a combonation of the video, the MINI manual, and a little thinking on my own to go along with patient perservence.

Hope this helps,

God Bless.

Hate to say it (b/c forums like this have saved me at least $2500; VW TDI fuel pump head gasket replacement), but I followed the directions in the Mini owner's manual. It worked.
Of course, I had to do it twice. The first time I pushed the mirror button 3 times, but too quickly.
(I have a Genie Intellicode opener)

You can program these remotes directly to the motor to open the garage door, and they feature two or three buttons that you can set to open multiple doors.
Remote can be reprogrammed in the same way should the signal be lost or a remote broken.
