There are steps for programming Car2U based on when your garage door opener was manufactured. If your serial number has the first 5 digits of 11290 or smaller then your model was made prior to November 2011. If your serial number has the first 5 digits of 11291 or higher then your model was made after November 2011. Follow the appropriate instructions below.
