How to Program Your Car to a Liftmaster Garage Door Operator

Entry Systems Tech Talks: Programming Your Car to a Liftmaster Operator

In the second video of our new Tech Talks series, Jonathan, our Manager of Garage Door Operations, explains how to program your car to a Liftmaster operator using your car’s existing garage door opener buttons.

It is important for you to have easy access to your home. One great way to make your life that much more convenient is to program your car directly to your garage door operator! This will allow you another means of access into your garage and allow you to give your current garage door remote to another family member or keep it in a second car. Why not connect the technology you already have in place and make your life a little easier?

If you’ve never programmed your car’s garage door buttons, now is the time. It can be a little confusing the first time, but this video from an Entry Systems professional will allow you to DIY (do it yourself) in just a minute or two.

Here’s an overview:

Many cars these days have HomeLink buttons installed which allow you to easily program your car to open and close your garage door using a Liftmaster operator.

A car’s HomeLink usually has a small symbol of a house and three buttons, and it is most commonly placed on the roof right above the windshield on either driver’s side or in the middle.

It should look something like this:

Make sure you also have a currently programmed garage door remote so you can transfer it over to your car’s HomeLink buttons.

Now follow these simple steps:

1- Decide which car button you want to program. Press that button & make sure the light flashes slow. If the light is solid or flashes fast, hold it down until it starts flashing slow (it could take up to 30 seconds to reset).

2- Take the handheld garage door remote that is already programmed. Hold down that remote’s button at the same time as you hold down your car button until the car button’s light starts flashing fast.

(With some newer cars this is all you have to do! Press your car’s button, and if the garage door opens you are done! If the door doesn’t open, however, continue to the next step.)

3- Find the “learn button” on your garage door operator (that’s the button on the machine which pulls your door open). Push that button down quickly (just once!).

4- Now go back to your car and hold down the button you chose to program. The lights on your motor should blink once.

5- Press your car’s programmed button & your garage door should now open. You’re all done!

It’s really that easy. We’d love to hear any questions you might have, video ideas you’d love to see, or any other general feedback. Make sure to subscribe to our channel and keep up with the content we produce!

As always, if you live in the Orange County, California area we would love to be your go-to garage door service company. Check out our website to learn more about us, give us a call at (949) 495-0835 or stop by our showroom in Laguna Hills!

Here’s an overview:

The Liftmaster 877MAX keypad can program multiple garage doors and automated gates. It works with any color “learn button” on your garage door operator (that’s the button on the machine which pulls your door open).

Programming your 877MAX keypad is easy.

2- Enter the four digit code of your choice on the keypad.

3- Press the “learn button” on your garage door operator & the light next to the button will come on.

4- Hit the “Enter” button on your keypad. You will press it a certain number of times depending on the color of your “learn button.”

For a green “learn button”: 4 times

Are you Prepared for a Power Outage? – LiftMaster Battery Backup

This weekend my fiance and I went to visit my parents who live in San Diego.  We arrived Friday evening.  Traffic had been pretty heavy so we were looking forward to relaxing and watching some TV with my mom.  As we were watching we had an unexpected power outage.  My dad works in the evening and was on his way home from work.  Our first thought, after we accessed some candles for light, was wondering how he was going to get in the garage without any power.  Thankfully we had an Entry Systems employee with us and he knew exactly what to do!  He disengaged the motor and lifted the door manually.  The first thing he said was, “Don’t you wish you had a battery backup for your motor?”

Unfortunately my parent’s house was not equipped with a battery backup to use in a time like this.  We saw this weekend how unexpectedly things can change and helpful it would have been to have that battery backup.  Make sure you are prepared for the next power outage by adding a LiftMaster battery backup to your garage door opener!

With a battery back-up on your operator you won't end up stuck in the next power outage.

The LiftMaster 8550 and 8500 both have battery back up capabilities. For more information about garage door openers, click here.

Rain, Rain, Go Away

We’ve had a good deal of rain lately here in Southern California.  Compared to the rest of the country it’s not very much, but we have been in a drought so when it rains for 2 days day we consider that to be a “good deal” of rain.  Personally, I like the change in the weather.  I was able to go home after work, light a fire, and enjoy a cozy evening with hot chocolate and Christmas tree lights.  I know the rain can cause many problems for people, though too.  One of those problems has to do with your garage door.

If your garage door is a roll-up, sectional door you have a type of springs called torsion springs.  These springs twist as your garage door closes, storing up energy, and then releasing energy and untwisting to open the door.  Without these springs your door is extremely heavy and almost impossible to lift.  Torsion springs don’t like the rain so when it rains they often break leaving your garage door stuck closed and your car trapped inside.  That’s when you frantically call Entry Systems to schedule a time for a technician to come out to fix it.

Most people don’t think twice about their garage door until it breaks. But the fact of the matter is that torsion springs only last about 10,000 cycles, or 5-8 years.  There are a few things you can do to help increase the life of your torsion springs, preventing extreme inconvenience and unexpected expenses.  We recommend having your garage door system serviced annually.  There are many parts that can wear out which can cause damage and unnecessary strain to your door and motor.  It is also important to keep your rollers, track, and springs well lubricated.  This will help your door open and close smoothly and quietly, and will prolong the life of your garage door and it’s operating system. Garage door maintenance can be dangerous so it may be best if you leave it up to the professionals.  We are happy to help and make sure you are able to get in and out of your garage and to work on time!

The torsion springs in your garage cause the door to open and close and can cause stress when broken.

Entry Systems to the Rescue

Entry Systems to the Rescue

When you have an Entry Systems technician show up at your house you might receive more than you are expecting.  Our technicians are very well trained in everything having to do with garage doors.  They are good guys who genuinely want to help our customers.  Sometimes the opportunity to help with something other than the garage door presents itself.  This story is an example of that.

Not long ago we received a call from a customer requesting service for their garage door.  We added her to the schedule and when the time came, we sent our technician out to see what was going on with her garage and how he could help.  As he was doing the adjustments, the customer’s husband came out to the garage to check on how things were proceeding.  While he was talking with our technician, he became faint and passed out on the garage floor.  His wife became hysterical and our technician immediately began to assess the situation and decide what he could do to help.  Not every one knows this, but this particular technician is a certified paramedic and worked as a reserve fire fighter before coming to work for Entry Systems.  He sat the man up in a chair and had the man’s wife call 9-1-1.  When the paramedics arrived they were impressed with our technician’s knowledge and how he handled the situation.  He never did tell them he is a certified paramedic.

At Entry Systems we take pride in our work.  We have highly trained technicians who love working with our customers.  You never know what kind of bonus you may receive when you have Entry Systems come to service your garage door or automated gate.
