This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & also 2016 in Canada) Dodge Durango SUV in changing the battery in the intelligent key fob remote control for the "Keyless Enter-N-Go" system.

Owners of other Chrysler, Dodge and RAM vehicles such as the Town & Country, 300, 200, Avenger, Charger, Journey, Dart, Challenger, Grand Caravan, and Ram C/V Tradesman minivan may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

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

The only tool required to change the battery is a small flathead screwdriver or a plastic pry bar tool.

You may also be able to use a coin, house key, knife, nail file or any other similar item.

Pull Out Metal Ignition Key
Slot Where Key Resides
Insert Screwdriver In Notch
The first step is to turn over the smart key fob and locate the silver release tab for the emergency / backup metal ignition key.

Slide the release tab over and pull out the metal ignition key.

Set the key aside in a safe place.

Insert the blade of the small flathead screwdriver in between the two halves of the key fob and gently pry them apart.
