What remote control works with my Overhead Door Legacy opener?
What replacement remote control works with my Overhead Door Legacy garage door opener?
It can be very confusing.
There are so many different options.
Some remote controls work with Series I. Some remote controls work with Series II. To make matters worse is that the remote control you received when the Legacy opener was installed is probably no longer available.
Overhead Door has discontinued the old style #1702 remote control.
What do you do?
First, lets simplify things...
There are (3) different remote controls that I would recommend for an Overhead Door Legacy garage door openers.
The original Legacy opener came out with a static 390 mhz frequency radio receiver that utlilizes 12 security dip switch settings. The model number of the Legacy openers are shown as 496 or 696. You will be able to locate 12 little switches inside an existing remote control or on the backside of the garage door opener motor. The remote control will look similar to the photo shown to the below.

The next series of Legacy openers came out with a rolling code technology called "Code Dodger" or CD for short. The first series of model numbers were listed as 496CD, 696CD, 496CD/A or 696CD/A.
The final series of Legacy openers were updated and continued to use the Code Dodger technology but were referenced as 496CD/B and 496CD/B.
Again let simplify things...
Regardless of which series of Code Dodger Legacy opener you have installed there are two (2) remote controls that will work. One option is a standard (3) button remote control (part #37517R). The other is a mini (3) button remote control that gives you the option to use it with a visor clip or key ring (part #37503S)
Part Number 37517R Part Number 37503S
Both of these remote controls are available on our online parts store at www.OverheadDoorPartsOnline.com.

When trying to program #37517R or #37503S remotes to openers from the Code Dodger era of November 1995 to the end of 1997, there are specific buttons that must be used. For #37517, only the button farthest to the right will program. For #37503S, only the center button will program.
