Small Notch On Bottom
This automotive maintenance tutorial was specifically written to assist owners of the third generation (2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014) Chevrolet Tahoe in changing the battery in the key fob remote control.

Owners of related General Motors vehicles with similar key fobs such as the Suburban, Avalanche, GMC Yukon, Yukon XL, Yukon Denali, Sierra, Cadillac Escalade and Hummer H2 may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement battery is part number CR2032 from various manufacturers such as Panasonic, GE, Energizer, Duracell, Maxell, Sony, and Philips.

The only tool needed to replace the battery is a small flathead screwdriver used to pry apart the key fob. You may also be able to use a butter knife or a nail file.

Insert Screwdriver In Notch
Pry Apart Key Fob Halves
Battery In Back Cover
The first step is to locate the small notch on the bottom edge of the key fob just below and to the right of the red "Panic" button.

To prevent from scratching the plastic surfaces, you may choose to cover the tip of your screwdriver with a thin micro fiber cloth.

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

The battery is located inside a socket on the back cover of the fob.

You may need to lift off the rubber button piece and the green remote control circuit board to access the battery.

Pull Out Old Coin Battery
Old CR 2032 3V Removed
Panasonic CR2032 3 Volt
Pry the old battery out of the holder in the back cover of the key fob with your finger nail or carefully use the flathead screwdriver.


Insert New Battery In Holder
"+" Positive Side Facing Down
Re-Insert Buttons & Remote
Insert a new CR2032 3 volt battery in to the socket with the "+" positive side facing down and the "-" negative side facing up towards you.

Line up the green remote control circuit board unit over the new battery with the electrical contacts in the correct position.

Place the rubber buttons piece over the circuit board.

Snap Together Two Halves
Flush Together All Around Fob
Test New Key Fob Battery
Line up the top cover of the key fob over the back half and gently snap them together.

Make sure that the two halves are flush together at each edge with no part of the rubber button piece visible.

Test the new key fob battery by standing near your Tahoe and pressing the "Lock" or "Unlock" buttons. If the new battery is working properly, you should see the parking lights flash and hear the door locks opening or closing.
