This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the tenth generation (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018) GM Chevy Impala in changing a dead battery in the key fob remote control for the keyless entry system.

Owners of other General Motors vehicles such as the Malibu, Cruze, Camaro, Sonic, Spark, Volt, Corvette, Trax, Equinox, Traverse, Tahoe, Suburban, SS Sedan, Bolt, Colorado, Silverado, Buick Verano, Regal, LaCrosse, Cascada, Encore, Envision, Enclave, Canyon, Sierra 1500, Terrain, Acadia, Yukon, Savana, ATS, CTS, XTS, CT6, XT5, SRX and Escalade 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.

No tools are needed to access and replace the battery.

Release Ignition Key
Thumb In Notch
Pull Off Battery Cover
The first step is to separate the fob from the key ring and your other keys.

Press the chrome silver button at the top of the key fob to eject the switchblade style metal ignition key.

Insert your thumb in to the empty space where the metal ignition key used to reside.

Firmly pull off the plastic battery access cover from the back of the fob.

Set the cover aside in a safe place.

Gently Tap Out Battery

Turn over the key fob and gently tap out the old battery.

If you have trouble removing the old battery, carefully use a small flathead screwdriver to pry it out of the socket.

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


Push In New Battery
Line Up Rear Cover
Snap On Back Cover
Push a new # CR2032 battery in to the socket with the "+" positive side facing up towards you and the "-" negative side facing down.

Make sure that the new battery is fully seated in the holder.

Line up the rear cover with the back side of the key fob.

Battery Cover Secured
Flush Together
Test New Key Fob Battery
Firmly pop the rear cover back in to place.

Make sure that the rear cover is flush together with the rest of the fob at every edge.

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

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