How to Change the Battery in a LiftMaster Garage Door Remote

Changing the battery in your LiftMaster garage door remote doesn’t have to be difficult. In fact, the process is fairly straightforward when you have simple steps to follow. The pros at Precision Garage Door Service® are here to show you how to change your LiftMaster remote battery using easy-to-follow instructions.

Before You Start

Before you change your garage door remote’s battery, you must do the following:

  • Before you raid your tool box for batteries and screwdrivers, check your wall control unit first, as the lock/vacation button may have accidentally been pressed. If so, then your problem might be solved and there is no need to change your remote battery.
  • Determine what type of battery your remote uses by checking your user guide or doing an online search.
  • Get a flat head screwdriver to pop open the remote casing and access your battery.

After Battery Changed

After you have changed your battery, your remote still may not be working. This is likely because you typically need to reprogram your remote. For tips on doing this, please see our video on How to Program Your Garage Door Codes.
