My garage door opener remote opens the next door neighbors garage as well as mine. What can I do to the remote so that it only opens mine?

Hi,

Reprogram your remote. The instructions can be read on the manual but if in someway you don't have it, please post the make and model and we'll help you search for it.

The same thing happens with ours and my husband reprogrammed the remote many times. It still happens.

do you have the small key chain remote or the one that clips to your visor?

Check your manual, it should have instruction for changing the opener code.

Same thing happened to me. I erased all codes and reprogrammed, but still opens the neighbors. They are going to try and reprogram theirs. Hopefully that works.

It's not your problem. Each modern remote has a unique code that get paired with the opener during programming. You neighbor need to reprogram their opener, first erasing all stored codes. Be sure nobody else nearby is opening their door when they do it.

If your remote is very old and programmed with dip switches. If so change the address on your remote and opener. Most likely only need to change the position of one addressing switch.
