Garage door opener button question

5 posts in this topic

Small problem that is driving me nuts. I currently have only one opener button near my entrance into the house from the garage...I want another near the door exiting the garage outside.

When I hook up the two buttons; the buttons themselves work fine, but when I go to use a remote, the opener does not work and the opener blinks in a sequence indicating that a remote attempted to open the door when the switch is in "vacation" or locked mode.

I called a local garage door co. and explained the issue and they said to go get a standard doorbell button instead of the second opener button made by the opener manufacturer because the two buttons were conflicting with each other. This made sense to me as I have seen this sort of setup before, but it didn't work and the same problem code is indicated.

The opener is made by Linear and both buttons have a pair of wires running to each. Do I need to wire the two buttons together somehow?

I'll take a stab at this.

Are the buttoms wired in parallel (out of one button into the other or series (each button with it's own set of wires going to the same screws as the other button)?

You should just hang a remote where the pushbutton is. I think you will have problems with two pushbuttons because of the rolling code that is on linear openers. Each pushbutton has it's on computer board this is where the problem happens. This is a good question, I currently sell that brand and have never tried this. Probably why the outside keypad is not hardwired. So one pushbutton and all the remotes you want.

You need two wire for each button,Parallel wont work the 2nd button will disrupt current.

I have a chamberlan opener working with two doorbell buttons wired seperatly 4 wires to the opener,and a remote in the car that works also.

What brand is yours? Have you tried to reset frequencies,or change them? Or just push the reset button?

    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate.
