Reprogram A Garage Door Keyless Entry Pad

For additional security, many households have installed garage door keyless entry systems.  Usually, these systems consist of keypads with programmable passwords, giving you extra protection from burglary.  If a keypad is lost or stolen, it's advised that you change your garage door keyless entry pad password. Follow these easy steps to quickly reprogram your entry pad.

Step 1 – Check the Manual

The first step to re-program your garage door keyless entry pad is to check your owner’s manual. Many times these manuals will have step-by-step instructions on how to re-program your pad.

Step 2 – Access Code

While all manufacturers’ garage door keyless entry pads are slightly different, there is still a general process to re-program your device.

After flipping up the protective casing, insert your access code. This access code is usually a 3 digit number which allows you to change your password. Since this access code is different for all companies, you should check you owner's manual, or call your manufacturer to ask for the code.

Step 3 – Log In

After you have successfully entered the access code, you will need to enter your old password. This is a very useful safety measure to ensure that the person changing the password is the actual owner. However, some people try to re-program their passwords because they don’t remember what it was previously. If this is the case, you should contact your manufacturer and they may be able to assist you.

Step 4 – Input New Password

The next step is to decide on your new password. Simply key in whatever you would like to change your password to and press "Enter" or "OK" on the device.

Re-programming your garage door keyless entry pad shouldn't be a difficult or lengthy process. If you have any problems along the way, make sure to contact your manufacturer.
