This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016) Jeep Patriot SUV in changing a dead battery in the key fob remote control for the keyless entry system.

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

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