How do I replace the remote control batteries?

Replacing the batteries in your vehicle’s remote control is no different than replacing them in your household remote control.

  1. Find the battery compartment on the back of your remote control.

  2. Slide the battery cover down and off.

  3. Remove the batteries from the remote.

  4. Add two new AAA batteries to the remote, making sure to orient them correctly.

  5. Slide the battery cover back on until it clicks securely.
