How do I program a car garage door opener without a remote?

My new house has an automatic garage door but the previous owner didn’t leave the remote behind. How do I program a car garage door opener without a remote?

I am sorry to say that you can’t program a car garage door opener without the remote control. But don’t let this get you down, there are several other options available that can help!
The easiest thing to do is to purchase a replacement remote. Places like HomeDepot sell universal garage door remote controls for less than $30. Just follow the instructions in the manual and you will be all set.
Another option is to use the garage door opener that is already installed in your car. Most cars these days will have a universal remote built into the driver-side visor. In this situation, you will want to reset the car remote back to the factory settings. Grab your vehicle’s owner’s manual and follow the instructions.
If you don’t have the owner’s manual for your car anymore, you will be able to download a copy online.
This isn’t the only time your car and your home will work well together. You can also bundle your auto and home policies for a pretty good discount.
