have you tried to resync your existing remotes? I know with the lift master they can be resynced and you can then set a second one to the same frequency. I can read the directions tonight if it will help.

This is a mid-70s door opener. You don't sync the remotes, you set the remote's dip-switches the same as the receiver.
However, the remote has to work at the same frequency as well. I bought a new 300mhz remote and set the switches correctly, but it won't work because the receiver is a different, unknown, frequency.

I did some searching on the receiver part number and found a note that the remote part number would be under the lens. If you have that number it may be of some help when dealing with customer service.

You might also look at the receiver board inside the box. The frequency may be stamped, stickered, or printed on the board someplace. Good luck.

What do you mean by "under the lens"? I cant find any writing inside the original remote.

Where is the receiver board inside the box? Do you mean the receiver, or the opener?

Well I called my friend Sterling, who is pretty good at figuring geeky things out. In one morning, he tracked down the numbers. I've been trying for 3 weeks.

Anyway, it's a 390MHz system he says. He also had me (over the phone) fuss with the switches on my not working remote, then reset it, and it now works again. It still doesn't work very well, but it didn't work well before, so...

A point of interest is that Sterling was the guy who designed, built and sold those "Carb Stix" synchronizers we all used back in the 70s & 80s.

So, thanks to you all for your help. Bike, now, no longer has to share its garage door remote with Car. So we're back at peace here on the home front.
AZgl1800 and flylow like this.

Back in the early 80's a friend made a little gadget that tied into a remote with the 10 position DIP switch, and after a few minutes would hit on the right combination, and open the garage door. Of anyone using that type of system.

After my remotes quit I bought a "Flash 2 Pass" system that works with any garage door opener. It cost about 100.00 but it also allows me to equip all of my vehicles with a transmitter. Best part is that since it works with all openers I can use it on a new system if my original opener fails beyond repair. I bought mine through wingstuff.com

I think Flash2Pass went out of business. It is hard to find any of their equipment anywhere except Ebay. About half of their website works.
I got a new Liftmaster opener a few weeks ago(old one damaged by a tornado) and it will not work with Flash2pass, so if you get a new opener, be careful which one you buy.

Which is why they no longer make those garage door openers, I suspect.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure FTP won't work on my mid-70s system. It's for the programmable sync type.
