Remote Keyfob Battery by Wilsy

User avatar
My remote battery seems to be on the way out. Can you replace the battery yourself? If you can, where can I get the battery from and are there any special tools required to open the casing? Any help and advice appreciated.

Yes you can, use a small screw driver to unclip the cover from the ring end. You will need to resynchronise the fob once changed. See ignition-key-resynchronisation.html
Sorry don't know which battery but once opened you will be able get a replacement easily.

I think its a CR2032, but may be a CR2025 or 2016.

Easily available for pennies.

Its a CR2032 brought a pair last weekend for £3.20 from Wilko's - Having changed the battery my fob did not need resynchronising.
