Our garage door was here when we moved in 17-18 years ago. It is an automatic manuf. by VEMCO which is no longer in business. Are there generic remote openers like in tv/dvd players? We just us the button on the inside of the garage to open/close but would like to get remotes for our cars. thanks.

rbb, Thank you. I took a peek at these and will read them thoroughly soon. Mary
rbbob, the home depot remote is way cheaper then the other one but it reads that it works with "80%" of garage doors. Would you guess the other 20% would be mine that is at least 20 years old?
Probably. Have a look at this site. It mentions Stanley VEMCO parts. Maybe Stanley bought out VEMCO.
Yea, I think Stanley did buy out VEMCO. I have the original owners manual. I saw where Radio Shack sells universal remotes also. Will take the manual w/ me. Altho, the last time I was at Rad. S. I had the most indifferent salesman.
Also you might want to put a surge protector on your garage door opener. We have lost 2 in 3 years when lightning struck our house. This is something noone
seems to mention when they sell you one. We are still without a garage door opener. And now no car anyway. :o)
lightening striking a house in the Pac NW? Did it blow out all your electricity?
