    Sure you can Tom. Look in your owners manual and it gives you step by step instructions. I would look it up for you but I'm feeling lazy on my 56th B-day.

    Yeah I don't care for it either. Think I'll trade down for a SR so I can just have a key.

    Take the key out of the fob. Where the key came out is a indentation where you can use the key like a screwdriver. open the case and you will have access to the battery.

    I like having a regular key in my Truck, not crazy about the Push Button Start.

    If you are storing a spare keyfob, do deactivate it for longer battery life -hold down lock button and click unlock twice, the light will double flash twice and then turn off. To activate it, just push any button. This is also in manual somewhere.

    Good advice here, ill certainly do this, when i get a new battery. Just got the warning that the battery is low, been 2 years and 1 month.

    For those who have purchased the battery, where did you go and how much were they?

    The CR2032 is easy to find at any Walmart or Lowe’s. A lot of remotes use them.

    Common battery. Just check that it is a 2032 not a 2016.

    Center console divider thingy, rubber bed mat and side steps for the wife.
    Amazon, I got a mess of them for a fraction of the cost you pay at a regular store. All my fobs use the CR2032. Vette as well.
