This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 9th generation (2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 & 2011) GM Chevrolet Impala in replacing the battery in the key fob remote control

Owners of other General Motors vehicles such as the Pontiac Grand Prix, Bonneville, Grand Am, Sunfire, Vibe, Malibu, Monte Carlo, Lumina, Olds Intrigue, Buick Regal, Cruze, Enclave, LaCrosse, Lucerne, Cadillac CTS, DTS, Escalade, SRX, STS, Avalanche, Aveo, Camaro, Corvette, Acadia, Sierra, Yukon and Equinox may also find this guide to be useful.

The only tool needed to replace the battery in the keyless entry system's remote control is a small flathead screwdriver.

A replacement CR2032 3V coin cell battery can be purchased at Radio Shack, any pharmacy, or most supermarkets.

I'd recommend buying a 5 pack of batteries on Amazon.

The first step is to remove the key fob from the car key and key rings. Then insert a small flathead screwdriver into the notch located near the key ring hole in the key fob. Gently turn the screw driver to pry apart the two halves of the remote control.

Pop out the old Maxell CR2032 H 3 Volt with the screwdriver and push in a new one with the "+" side facing down into the bottom halve of the key fob.

Then line up the top half of the key fob with the bottom half and gently push until they snap back together.

Double check that the two halves are completely sealed together all the way around.

Finally, test the new battery by going outside to your car and verifying that all the buttons and functions work properly.
