  2. Once you have found the “learn” button, press and hold it until the LED light next to it begins to blink.
  3. Next, take your garage door remote control and press and hold the button that you wish to use to open your garage door.
  4. The LED light on the garage door opener unit should now be solid, indicating that the remote has been successfully programmed.
  5. You can now release both buttons and test the remote by pressing the button to open your garage door. If it opens, then you have successfully programmed the remote! If not, please repeat the steps above.
