You can change it yourself. The remote works by sending a radio type signal to the car. This signal won't change by replacing the battery. HTH. -Jim

Use a tiny flat head screw driver, a knife, our your fingernails to pry it apart. The plastic case is in two halves, so just find a place along the seam to pry. The best place to start is when you're viewing the fob from the side with the buttons, just to the right of the key ring hole on the bottom is a tiny gap. The battery is a 3V CR2032 button cell.

Dorian's right. If the replacement battery is a plain 2032 that's fine. Doesn't have to have the "CR" in front of the battery number. -Jim
