Sometimes, I can get into trouble on an Agent Visual Inspection if I mention garage door opener. Buyers and their agents have thought that means a remote and they do not understand it is an opener attached to the ceiling of the garage. You have your garage door opener and your garage door remote. But it's even less clear when you're reading programming instructions from Liftmaster, which employ other words.
I tried all afternoon on Sunday to get my remote control to work properly. It stopped functioning. After everything I did, including replacing the battery and attempting to reprogram, I concluded it was the garage door remote itself. It was 27 years old.
Of course, the first place I looked for an answer was inside my SUV. It has features I have not familiarized myself with due to lack of interest. But no HomeLink for me. You can read more about my adventure in my personal blog today at this link: When Your Garage Door Remote Stops Working.
