This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the fifth generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015) GM Chevrolet Camaro in changing the battery in the key fob remote control.

Owners of other General Motors vehicles such as the Spark, Cruze, Malibu, Sonic, Impala, Traverse, Tahoe, Trax, SS, GMC Terrain, Acadia, Yukon, Buick Verano, Regal, LaCrosse, Encore, Enclave and the Holden Barina may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement coin cell (A.K.A. "button" or "watch") battery is part number CR2032.

They are available from various manufacturers such as Panasonic, Sony, GE, Energizer, Maxell and Duracell.

No tools are necessary to change the battery.

Tap Out Old Battery
The first step is to locate the notch on the left edge of the key fob.

(On some key fobs, you may need to eject the switchblade style metal ignition key by pressing the chrome colored button.)

Gently pry off the rear cover on the key fob to expose the battery socket.

Turn over the fob and tap it on the table to eject the old battery.

You may also be able to pull out the old battery with your fingernail.

Parking Lights Flashing
To test the new battery, stand near your Camaro and press the "Unlock" or "Lock" buttons on the key fob.

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