This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the eleventh generation (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018) Toyota Corolla in changing the battery in the combination ignition key and key fob remote control for the keyless entry system.

Owners of other Toyota, Lexus or Scion vehicles such as the Yaris, Matrix, Prius, Camry, RAV4, Sienna, Tacoma, Tundra, FJ Cruiser, Venza, Highlander, Avalon, Sequoia, Land Cruiser, 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 cell (A.K.A. "button" or "watch") battery is part number CR2016 which is available from various manufacturers such as Panasonic, Duracell, Energizer, GE, Maxell, Sony and ACDelco.

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

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

Remove the back cover from the fob and set it aside in a safe place.
