In this way, why won't my garage door open with the remote?

When your garage door won't open with the remote, there are few things that can cause this problem: You might be out of range. The antenna on the motor could be damaged or blocked from the signal; make sure it is hanging down from the motor. If all these fail, try reprogramming the remote.

One may also ask, are there universal remotes for garage door openers? You can program universal garage door openers to open one or two garage doors. With the addition of a light control switch, a universal remote also turns on the garage light or your home lights. If you have a newer garage door opener but you are unsure of the exact model, a universal remote will probably do the trick.
