How to fix the issue?

If the keypad of your garage door is not working properly, we have explained a few ways to help you fix the issue.

Change keypad batteries

If your garage door keypad is not working, it might be possible that your keypad batteries are dead. The keypads run on batteries, showing no warning when the battery is low or dead. So replace the keypad battery and check if the keypad is working or not. Some newer models require a 9-volt battery, and some older models require a 12-volt battery.

Use the correct PIN

Make sure you are entering the correct pin, it is a very common mistake that happens, and we all make such small mistakes. Generally, all models limit how many times you can enter the pin. If you enter the wrong pin many times, your keypad might get blocked.

If you have forgotten the pin, you must wipe the keypad’s memory and reprogram it. You will have to restart the whole system, and restarting the system wipes all the memory, including the used pins.

Check for loose connections

Check the garage door keypad and remote for any loose connections and damaged wires. A loose connection or damaged wires can be why you cannot use the garage door keypad. If you find any loose wires, detach them and then attach them again and if you find any damage, then replace them.

Clean the keypad

It is possible that dirt might be accumulated in the garage door keypad and clogged the buttons, making it difficult to use the buttons. So cleaning it is the best option for you if this is why you cannot use your garage door keypad. Clean it and then check it.

Reboot the garage door opener

Rebooting garage door openers is one of the best and most working solutions for many common issues with the system. To do that, turn off the garage door opener, unplug the power cord for about five minutes, plug it back in, and start the system again.

Buy a new keypad

If none of the above methods works for you, then as the last resort, you can buy a new keypad. The keypad you are using right now might be old. The keypad is directly exposed to different weather conditions like sun, wind, rain and snow, which affect the keypad’s life. So if you think your keypad is old and needs replacement, replace it.
