Help... I have a 1/2 HP Craftsman Garage Door Opener, I believe its a Model 139.536 SRT3 I have been having trouble getting both the Keyless entry pad and the vehicle remote controls to operate together. Initially after installation everything worked great eventually the batteries wore out on the keypad opener and then on my vehicles remote, leaving the wife’s operating fine. Recently I've replaced the Keypad's 9V battery and followed the instructions in my owners manual to add/program the keyless entry> I followed the directions for "the Premium Console setup" (the one with a button to turn the light on and off.) OTE this was purchased afterwards to give me control of the openers light from the opener switch I don’t believe this should have any effect on the programming). This allows me to program the keyless entry pad but somehow disables the car remote. When I follow the steps to reset the car remote programming, the keyless pad stops operating..and back and forth. Can someone help me..PLEASE. I'm starting to feel like I’m trapped in some type of Laurel & Hardy routine...

Call 1-800-528-5236.

NOTE TO BOB VILA-PLEASE POST THIS NUMBER TO HELP REDUCE GREY HAIRS ALL OVER AMERICA.

It is the Craftsman tech help line and it is not on the owner's manual nor do the customer service people at ***** know about it. After Googling (forever)I found the number on gardenweb.com

Thankx wmcdonald2001. I've read similar postings on the gardenweb.com but failed to read enough to find that number. My wife will be thrilled that I've conquered that lingering item from the honey-do list and she'll no longer need to carry around the keypad in her car for a car remote, and hang it outside the garage when she wants "keyless" entry from the keypad. >;-)

(my 'not so funny in her eyes' resolution)
