Open up the transmitter keypad. 3. Carefully use a flat-head screwdriver to remove the old battery. 4. Replace the battery with a CR1616 or equivalent battery. 5. Replace the transmitter cover and screw back on. Tip Always have clean and dry hands when replacing a remote transmitter battery, or else you might cause serious damage to the transmitter.
