This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the 6th generation (2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014) Ford Taurus sedan in changing the battery in the keyless entry system's key fob remote control.

Owners of other Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles with similar key fobs such as the Fiesta, Fusion, Focus, C-Max, Mustang, Escape, Transit Connect, Explorer, Edge, Expedition, Flex, MKS, MKZ, MKT, MKX, Navigator, Milan, Grand Marquis, Mariner and Mountaineer may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

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

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

You can also use a coin, key or butter knife.

Insert Flathead Screwdriver
Pry Off Back Cover
Rubber Battery Cover
The first step is to locate the notch on the bottom left corner of the combination car key and fob remote control close to the red "Panic" button.

Insert the blade of the flathead screwdriver in to the notch and gently pry off the back cover of the key fob.

If the rubber cover is still attached to the front half of the fob, pull it off and set it aside.

Drop Out Old Battery
Old Battery Removed
Panasonic CR2032 3V
Turn over the fob and let the old battery drop out, or pull it out with your fingernail.


Insert New CR 2032 Battery
Replace Rubber Cover
Insert a new # CR2032 battery in to the slot with the "+" positive side facing up towards you.

Re-insert the rubber gasket cover in to the back cover of the key fob.

Line Up Two Halves Fob
Snap Together Key Fob
Test New Key Fob Battery
Line up the back cover of the key fob with the front half and gently snap them back together.

Make sure that the two halves of the fob are flush together with no part of the rubber gasket showing.

Test the new battery by standing next to your Taurus and pressing the "Unlock" or "Lock" buttons. If the new battery is working properly, you should see the parking lights flash.
