What replacement remote control works with my Overhead Door Python 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, the remote control you received when the Python opener was installed is no longer available.

overhead door remote control part number 1702Overhead Door has discontinued the old style #1702 remote control.

 

What do you do?

First, lets try to explain the evolution of the Overhead Door Python garage door opener...

The first series of Python openers came out with a rolling code technology called "Code Dodger (Generation I) or CD for short. The first series of model numbers were listed as OCG510 anf OCG710

The second series of Python openers came out with magnetic limit switches and were referred to as Code Dodger (Generation II). The second series of models numbers were listed as OCG550 and OCG750.

The final series of Python openers were updated with an improved circuit board and continued to use the Code Dodger technology but were referenced as Generation III. The third series of model numbers we listed as OCG600ML and OCG800ML.

Now let try to simplify things...

Regardless of which series of Code Dodger Legacy opener you have installed there are three (3) remote controls that we recommend to use with the Overhead Door Pything garage door opener. One option is a standard (3) button remote control (part #37517R). The second option is the mini CD remote control (part #38502R). The last option is the Master remote control which can be considered a "universal" remote control for any Code Dodger garage door opener. The part number for the Master remote control is #37345R

Please note:

When trying to program the #37517R remote to openers from the Code Dodger era of November 1995 to the end of 1997, only the button farthest to the right will program.
