So A couple weeks back my garage door starts acting up. Remotes don't work that well and are intermittant. They work pretty well the closer to the reciever you get. It's been a while since I changed the batteries so I do that. It works a little better but not much. Couple days later it's so bad I can't open the garage do at all. Wife isn't that happy about it being preggo and with a 1 1/2 year old. I needed another remote anyway so I bought another. I didn't think that would magically work but what the heck. As soon as it didn't work any better the light came on. I knew I was getting spurious emissions but from what. My radio isn't functional yet. Ah.. I have an idea what it is. The baby monitor we have crapped out so I got another (same model) but the old one wasn't causing issues. But wait, it's off when not in use anyway... Hum what the heck. Ding. The Transmitter for it is always on. I go unplug it. Bam, garage door remotes function normally again with good range. Wife isn't happy that we'll have to bag the monitor for the garage door but it seems to be more important. But wait the old one didn't have any issues with the garage door so I go check which switch it's on. It's on A so I switch things to B. wa-la B works and so does the garage door. Time for a beer!
