'13 Silverado Key Fob
Notch At Bottom Right
Insert Flathead Screwdriver
This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 2nd generation (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 & 2013) Chevrolet Silverado 1500 in replacing the key fob battery.

Owners of other General Motors vehicles such as the GMC Sierra, Terrain, Acadia, Yukon, Savana, Chevy Colorado, Avalanche, Express, Equinox, Traverse, Tahoe, Suburban, Spark, Sonic, Cruze, Volt, Malibu, Impala, SS, Camaro, Corvette, Verano, Regal, LaCrosse, Encore, and Enclave may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

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

The only tool needed to replace the battery is a small flathead screwdriver.

Pry Open Two Halves
Two Halves Separated
Pry Out Old Battery
Locate the small notch at the bottom right of the key fob near the red "Panic" button and the hole for the key ring.

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

Gently pry out the old coin cell battery from the bracket in the rear cover of the fob with the flathead screwdriver.

Old Maxell CR 2032 3V
Insert New Battery
Line Up Two Halves


Insert a new CR2032 3 volt coin cell battery in to the rear cover of the fob with the positive "+" side facing down.

Line up the two halves of the fob together.

Snap Key Fob Together
Flush Together All Around
Test New Key Fob Battery
Gently snap together the two halves of the key fob. Make sure that the two halves are flush together all the way around.

Test the new key fob battery by standing near your Silverado and pressing the "Lock" or "Unlock" buttons.

If the new battery is working properly, you should see the parking lights flash.
