This automotive maintenance "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 10th generation (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013) Toyota Corolla in replacing the battery in the combination car key and keyless entry remote control.

Owners of other Toyota, Lexus, Scion or related Pontiac models with similar key fobs such as the Camry, RAV4, Yaris, Avalon, 4Runner, Venza, xB, xD, tC and Vibe may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement coin (A.K.A. button or watch) battery for the 09-12 Toyota Corolla key fob is part number CR2025 from manufacturers such as Sony, Panasonic, Energizer, Duracell, and Maxell.

The only tool needed to access the key fob battery is a small flathead screwdriver.
