We have a single garage door with an opener and two remotes. We get extremely inconsistent results with both remotes (a change of batteries does not fix). When we leave in the morning and we're right outside the door and want it to close, the remote barely works. We sometimes have to put 20-30 times for it to finally close. However, when I'm arriving at home the remote seems to work from 2-3 houses away.
This morning the remote wouldn't work at all when I tried to close it. I actually walked into the garage with the remote and put it right next to the opener and it did not close. When I arrived back home a half hour later, it worked perfectly.
We've had no other problems with this garage door. The wired switch inside the garage works as well as the security keypad on the outside. I read that I should make sure the antenna is wired in correctly but it doesn't seem like that would be the culprit if it works again a half hour later.
Do I just need to get 2 new remotes?
Edit: It's a Chamberlain Whisper Drive Plus, 3/4 HPS. No idea how old it is, but it seems fairly new.
