This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the XV50 seventh generation (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016) Toyota Camry in changing the battery in the keyless entry system's key fob remote control.

Owners of other Toyota, Scion or Lexus vehicles such as the Yaris, Corolla, Matrix, RAV4, Prius, Tacoma, Tundra, Sienna, FJ Cruiser, Venza, Highlander, Avalon, 4Runner, Land Runner, Sequoia, IS 250, ES 350, GS 350, tC, xB, xD, iQ and FR-S may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement coin, "button" or "watch" cell key fob battery is part number CR2016 available from various manufacturers such as Panasonic, GE, Energizer, Duracell and Sony.

The only tool needed to replace the battery is a small flathead screwdriver.

Re-Insert Plastic Buttons
The first two steps are to remove the key ring and locate the small notch at the bottom left of the fob near the trunk opener button.

Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver in to the notch and gently pry apart the two halves of the key fob.

If the plastic buttons popped out of place, re-insert them in to the appropriate holes in the top half of the fob attached to the metal ignition key.

Pop the remote control unit out of the key fob case.

Gently insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver in to the sides of the remote control unit. Push in the clear plastic tabs and pry apart the black plastic cover from the clear plastic piece.

You may need to push in several of the clear plastic tabs on the edge of the remote unit to pry off the black plastic back cover. Do not use excessive force.

Make sure that the two halves of the fob are flush together all the way around.

Test the new key fob battery by standing near your Camry and pressing the "Lock" or "Unlock" buttons. If the new battery is working properly, you should see the parking lights flash and/or hear some beeping sounds.
