How to Change the Battery in Your Wireless Keyless Entry

Wireless keyless entry systems can be a big advantage for your home. They allow you to enter your garage without the need for a key or remote control. Just type in your PIN, and you’re good to go — but what do you do when your keyless entry system isn’t working?

In many cases, when your keyless entry system isn’t working, it just needs a battery replacement.

How to Replace Your LiftMaster® Keypad Battery

Because your garage is one of the primary entrances of your home, it can be bothersome and even worrisome when your entry system isn’t doing its job. While all systems are created differently, LiftMaster developed a video that shows the general steps for how to replace your entry system’s worn-out battery, taking the worry out of its repair. For specific details, be sure to refer to your keypad’s instruction manual.

There are just four simple steps to take to replace your LiftMaster keypad battery:

  1. Slide the battery cover down. The battery is located at the bottom of your keypad.
  2. Disconnect the old battery and remove it. Remember to dispose of your old battery correctly.
  3. Install the new battery. LiftMaster’s keyless entry systems require 9V batteries.
  4. Put the battery cover back in place.
