This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the 6th generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014) Ford Taurus sedan in changing the battery in the keyless entry system's key fob remote control.

Owners of other Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles with similar key fobs such as the Fiesta, Fusion, Focus, C-Max, Mustang, Escape, Transit Connect, Explorer, Edge, Expedition, Flex, MKS, MKZ, MKT, MKX, Navigator, Milan, Grand Marquis, Mariner and Mountaineer may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

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

The only tool needed to replace the battery is a flathead screwdriver. You can also use a coin, key or butter knife.

Rubber Battery Cover
The first step is to locate the notch on the bottom left corner of the combination car key and fob remote control close to the red "Panic" button.

Insert the blade of the flathead screwdriver in to the notch and gently pry off the back cover of the key fob.

If the rubber cover is still attached to the front half of the fob, pull it off and set it aside.

Line up the back cover of the key fob with the front half and gently snap them back together.

Make sure that the two halves of the fob are flush together with no part of the rubber gasket showing.

Test the new battery by standing next to your Taurus and pressing the "Unlock" or "Lock" buttons. If the new battery is working properly, you should see the parking lights flash.
