How To Replace Your Garage Door Remote’s Battery

Garage door remote controls are an incredibly convenient way to open and close your garage door without getting out of the car. Most remotes powered by a battery, the battery last between two and five years depending on the battery type and how often you use it. As the battery is close to the end, there will be a lack of LED lights blinking on the remote and also slower response time when trying using the remote.

Replacing your remote’s battery is a simple process that can be easily completed

Follow this 4 steps:

 1.You need to determine what type of battery cover your remote uses these could either be a slide off or require a flat headed screwdriver to unscrew.

2. Once you remove the cover you will see what kind of battery is inside, it is usually a small lithium 3V CR2016 circular cell, some models may use an AA or AAA battery instead. Take this with you when you purchase your battery so you can make sure to get the right type for your remote.

3. Place the new battery into your remote, if it requires an AA or AAA battery then there should be an indicator telling you which direction to insert it. For a cell type they should face upwards with their positive side facing up.

4. Put the cover back on your remote and test it out. You have done it, the remote is working again!

 If it doesn’t work then double check that batteries were inserted correctly. Check the emergency release cords and if it still not working call for technical support from a garage door repair service provider.
