This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017) Mitsubishi Outlander Sport in changing a dead battery in the smart or "intelligent" key fob remote control for the keyless entry and push button start systems.

Owners of other Mitsubishi vehicles such as the Lancer, Outlander, Mirage, ASX, RVR, Galant, I-MIEV, Montero, Eclipse, 3000GT, Endeavor, Raider, Diamante, Attrage, Carisma, Colt, Grandis, Magna, Pajero and the Space Star may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

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

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

Pop Out Old Battery
To prevent from scratching the plastic surfaces, you may choose to cover the tip of your screwdriver with a thin micro fiber cloth.

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

Set the rear cover of the fob aside in a safe place.

Either use your fingernail or the flathead screwdriver to gently pry the old CR2032 battery out of its socket.

Try to avoid bending the metal electrical contacts or scratching the green circuit board.
