Do the wireless garage door keypads go bad & other problem?


I have a problem where the keypad does not work. The light doesn't come on to let you know its even getting power. I just put in a new battery to make sure but nothing.

My garage door works fine with both cars Homelink and the push button remote by the door going into the house.

I can't get the keypad to do anything.

Also, one side of my garage door sensors is red and the other is green but everything seems to work fine. I thought that if any were red then there was something wrong.

Ideas for either problem?

Alright I found out that one of the LED's is supposed to be red and the other is green, so I'm fine on this problem. I thought they were both supposed to be green.

Are you sure a button is not stuck "in" on key pad?

Its not, I took it off to check and you can hear it "click" like it should as you open it but I'll look a little closer at the button paying attention to how it acts.

Battery good???? If yes, keypads do go bad, like everything else.

LED colors may depend on the manufacturer, some have one red, one green, some have both same color. The important part is that both are lit.

Those keyboards being outside are sensitive to moisture(humidity) and salt air, in Fl I know you have both. I maintain a property on the ocean in SC, those keypads and wireless door bell buttons last a year.

I have been doing garage doors and opts for 6 years and sounds like you have a bad keypad. Depending on year and model you can get a new one or a universal one.

I figured out what the problem was. I took the keypad apart and found that one of the battery terminal wires was lose from the circuit board. I went to Radio Shack and bought a new battery terminal (9volt) removed the old one and soldered the new one to the circuit board and everything works perfectly.
