Insert Flathead Screwdriver
This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the 1st generation 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016 GM Chevrolet Traverse crossover SUV in replacing the coin cell battery in the keyless entry system's key fob remote control.

Owners of other General Motors vehicles from GMC, Saturn, Buick, and Cadillac such as the Acadia, Terrain, Sierra, Yukon, Savana, Outlook, Verano, Regal, Lacrosse, Encore, Enclave, Spark, Sonic, Cruze, Malibu, Impala, Camaro, Equinox, Tahoe, Suburban, Colorado, Avalanche, Silverado, ATS, XTS, CTS, SRX, and Escalade may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

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

The only tool needed to replace the battery is a small flathead screwdriver used to pry apart the two halves.

Two Halves Separated
Pry Out Old Battery
Maxell CR 2032 3V
Locate the small notch at the bottom right corner edge of the key fob close to the red "Panic" button.

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

Gently pry out the old coin cell battery from the back cover of the key fob.

Install New Battery
"+" Positive Side Down
Line Up Two Fob Halves


Install a new # CR2032 3V battery into the bottom half of the key fob with the "+" positive side facing down.

Line up the two halves of the key fob and gently snap them together.

Snap Fob Together
Flush All Around
Test New Fob Battery
Make sure that the top and bottom halves of the key fob are flush together all the way around.

To test the new key fob battery, stand near your Traverse and press the "Lock" or "Unlock" buttons. If the battery is working properly, the parking lights should flash.
