Replace a Battery in a Garage Door Opener Remote

Please, Please OPEN!!!

The time comes when all off us pull up to our garage door, reach our hand to the visor, and push the button and….(to our dismay)… nothing happens. We frantically press the button again and again. Possibly thinking that after pressing it 20 times in a row it will mystically open. The culprit.., a dead battery! Solution: Call the Garage Door repair man and ask him to change the battery? You could but I am sure you would rather spend the cost of his services on something else.

To replace the battery just follow the simple instructions below.


  1. Open the remote. There are two usual ways to open the remote. Many models are secured shut with one or two small screws on the back. Typically this is a small phillips-head screw. Loosen the screw with your screwdriver, and then open the remote. You may also have to look for a pry point and pry open the remote with a small slot-head screw driver.
  2. Some remotes are even easier. Look for a sliding door on the back — simply push it off with your thumbs.
  3. Remove the garage door remote battery(s). Typically, you’ll find either standard AAA or AA type batteries or round “watch” style batteries.
  4. Buy new batteries. AA and AAA batteries can be had at any department, drug, or grocery store. Watch-style batteries are commonly available at drug store and electronics stores. Radio Shack is an excellent option. Take the old battery(s) with you to ensure you purchase a correct replacement.
  5. Place the new batteries in the garage door remote, close it and test operation. If your remote works properly, you’re all set. If it does not, you may want to consider calling a repair service for the garage door.

    lot more useful than ever before.
