With manual in hand, I climbed the ladder and slowly read the steps for reprogramming the remotes. It sounded complicated, but one step at a time, and I'd be fine.
First step done. Second step done. Third step done.
I was pleased as punch with my accomplishment, and all was well...for a while at least. Sadly, in a few weeks, I was right back where I started from. No matter how many times I reprogrammed the remotes, the garage door would NOT go down. Even the wall panel wasn't working without hands-on assistance.
Clearly, something besides programming was amiss, so I climbed the ladder again and closely examined the wiring. It HAD to be the wiring. Something wasn't connecting somewhere.
Sure enough, after a few wiggles, I located a loose wire. Aha!
Feeling empowered by my brilliance, I isolated the wire, figured out where it belonged and carefully secured it back in place. I couldn't wait to get off the ladder and give it a try.
Voilà! Worked like a charm.
