    The first thing you need to do is to reset your Stanley garage door keypad. In order to do that, press and hold the “ACCESS LEARN” and “RADIO LEARN” keys together for about 10 to 15 seconds. This should turn the keypad “status indicator” light off. If it does not go off, let go off the two keys you are pressing and then press them again. If the key “status indicator” goes off time, you have successfully reset your door keypad.

    Once the “status indicator” light remains illuminated, punch in the four-digit access code that you want to use. You can either use the code that you had originally set, or you can enter a new code. Make sure you do not set “1-2-3-4” as the access code, since it is the standard access code for all garage door keypads made by Stanley.

    After you are done entering the new access code, press the “ACCESS LEARN” key once again. The “status indicator” light should turn off now. However, if the light blinks quickly, it indicates that the keypad did not process the access code you just entered correctly and therefore you will have to re-enter the code.
