After several years of use, a battery within a keyless car remote control will become discharged. The battery must be replaced to reset the keyless car remote control. While each manufacturer uses a different size or type of battery, the procedure for replacing a dead keyless car remote control battery is generally similar across all manufacturers.

- Replacement battery
- Screwdriver or small coin
Remove the replacement battery from the packaging. Loosen the remote control retaining screw, and open the remote control cover.
