When you have become accustomed to having this technology, it can create challenges when that battery needs to be replaced. Luckily, it’s easy to open your key fob and replace the CR2025 battery.

  1. On the back of your key fob, you will find the auxiliary key button. Once you press that button, you will be able to access the metal auxiliary key.
  2. After you take the metal key out, you will find a slot on either side of the key casing.
  3. Carefully pry open the case using a tape-wrapped flathead screwdriver. Gently start on one side and then move to the other side.
