This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the 3rd generation (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and maybe also the revised 2017 model year) Ford Escape SUV in changing the battery in the key fob remote control.

Owners of other Ford or Lincoln vehicles such as the Focus, Fusion, C-Max, Mustang, Fiesta, Transit Connect, Edge, Flex, Explorer, Expedition, Taurus, F-150, EcoSport, MKC, MKZ, MKS, MKX, MKT and the Navigator may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

The replacement coin cell (A.K.A. "button" or "watch") battery is part number CR2032 which is available from various manufacturers such as Panasonic, Sony, Duracell, Energizer, Maxell and Toshiba.

The only tool needed to access and replace the battery is a coin such as a quarter. You may also use a flathead screwdriver, a butter knife, or a nail file.

Test New Key Fob Battery
Make sure that the front and back of the key fob are flush together at every edge.

To test the new key fob battery, stand near your Escape and press the "Unlock" or "Lock" buttons.

If the new battery is working properly, you should see the parking lights flash and hear the door locks opening or closing.
