This means that when you press the button on your remote to operate the garage door opener, it changes the access code that has been programmed into it to ensure greater security from would-be intruders.

Why does my garage door remote not working?
Garage door remotes can stop working for a few reasons. These reasons can include battery issues, signal range, or even the garage door opener itself.
The first thing to check is the battery. If there is nothing wrong with the battery, try replacing it with a new one. If this does not work, you will need to check the antenna on your garage door opener. Most garage doors have an antenna wire that hangs down from the motor. If this wire gets disconnected or damaged in any way, then it will not receive the signal from your remote control and your garage door will not work properly. Check also your opener. Unplug your opener and plug it back in again. This is like rebooting your computer when it freezes up. Unplug the opener from its power source, wait a few seconds, and then plug it back in again. See if this fixes the problem with your garage door opener not working right.
