How do I replace the battery in the keyless entry remote?
A working keyless entry remote is not only a convenience, but it can also help you find the vehicle in inclement weather or sound the alarm in an emergency. If the battery in the remote dies, replacing it is simple:
Tip Twist with steady pressure but do not force the halves apart. Gently pry the halves and stop if there is serious resistance.
There is a small, round battery inside. Remove this battery and discard properly.
Replace the dead battery with a new CR2032 battery.
When the new battery is installed, line up the two halves and snap the remote back together.
