This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 Dodge Dart in changing a weak or dead battery in the key fob remote control for the keyless entry system.

Owners of other Chrysler, Dodge and RAM vehicles such as the Town & Country, 300, 200, Avenger, Charger, Journey, Challenger, Durango, Grand Caravan, and Ram C/V Tradesman minivan may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

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

The only tool needed to disassemble the key fob and replace the battery is a small flathead screwdriver.

Insert Flathead Screwdriver
The first step is to slide the metal switch near the bottom of the fob in order to release the backup metal ignition key.

Set the metal ignition key aside in a safe place.

Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver in to the notch where the metal key used to reside.

Gently pry apart the two halves of the key fob.

Re-Insert Backup Key
Line up the front cover of the key fob with the rear cover and gently snap together the two pieces.

Make sure that the two halves of the key fob are flush together at every edge.

To test the new key fob battery, stand near your Dart 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.
