Can I change the battery on thr remote key entry f to open and close Grand Prix doors
The battery on my remote for locking and unlocking car appears to be going. Can I just
change the battery myself or do I need to go to a dealer?
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
Thanks .. Now to figure out how to get the battery cover off without breaking it. Any suggestion
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
