Assuming there is a communication problem from using your remote from outside with the garage door shut. There may be something interfering with the signal or possibly something else.

First make sure the batteries are in working order in your remote control. If so, go inside your garage with the remote you had in your car, and with the garage closed, test the remote to see if the door opens. If not then your remote is most likely broken and you need to replace it. Assuming this since the button on the garage door wall opened the door. Try another remote you know that works. Test it from inside the garage and then test it from outside the garage.

The Antenna Wire

If the remote works from inside the garage but not from the outside, then most likely the antenna wire on the garage door opener itself may be defective, or not in visible range. Check to be sure the antenna is attached and if it is not hanging down from the unit. Move the antenna so it can catch the beam being sent by the remote. Please note that the antenna on some garage door openers is inside the unit itself.

Another issue could be that there is some sort of interference from different wireless devices in use near your area. If this is the case then find the antenna mount point and add a wire to it to make it longer. If this does not work there are other solutions. There are extenders that allow you to send the signal from outside the house and it runs by a wire to the garage opener unit.

So, the when you think that it’s time you need garage door services, don’t hesitate to call Gate and Garage repair company.
