My parents have a garage door opener. The wire from the indoor button is
easy enough to trace. In your case, it should be easy enough to unwire the
indoor button wire from the side of the door opener. And then, cross the two
screws with a short piece of wire. If the opener cycles, you know to look at
the indoor wire and switch.
Need to isolate, is it the opener, or the wire, or the switch. All this can
be done with a ladder, screw driver, short wire, and then a VOM to test

What a great Newsgroup.
I have the typical electric garage door opener; probably about 10 yrs
old or so.
No idea what brand.
It works perfectly using either of our remotes (from the cars)
But, pressing on the indoor button to activate does nothing.
Is the "most likely" cause a defective button since the remotes work it
just fine ?
BTW: is it most likely that this indoor button is low voltage, and not
the typical 110 V house voltage ?
I wouldn't think so, but might the electrical line going to this indoor
pushbutton have its own fuse (by the motor somewhere ?) ?
