How do I reset my wireless fence collar?

Answered by Ricardo McCardle

Resetting your PetSafe wireless collar is a relatively simple process. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you through it:

1. Remove the battery: Start by removing the battery from the collar. Most PetSafe wireless collars have a small latch or screw that allows you to access the battery compartment. Carefully open it and remove the old battery.

2. Power button: Look for the power button on the collar. It is usually located on the side or front of the device. Press and hold down the power button for a few seconds. This step ensures that any residual power is drained from the collar.

3. LED indicator: Once you have held down the power button for a few seconds, you will notice that the LED indicator on the collar will go out. This indicates that the collar has been successfully powered off.

4. Replace the battery: If the battery was old or no longer functioning, it’s a good idea to replace it with a fresh one. Make sure you have the correct battery type for your specific PetSafe wireless collar model. Insert the new battery into the compartment and securely close it.

5. Turn the collar on: With the new battery in place, it’s time to turn the collar back on. Press and hold down the power button again for a few seconds until you see the LED indicator light up. This indicates that the collar is now powered on and ready for use.

By following these steps, you should be able to reset your PetSafe wireless collar and get it back to its normal functioning state. Remember to check the user manual or contact PetSafe customer support if you encounter any difficulties or if your specific collar model has different reset instructions.

Please note that these instructions are general guidelines and may vary slightly depending on the specific model of your PetSafe wireless collar. Always consult the user manual for your particular collar for the most accurate instructions.
