Insert Coin or Screwdriver
This automotive "how-to" guide was specifically written to assist owners of the first generation 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2012 Nissan Versa hatchback or sedan in replacing a worn out battery in the key fob remote control.

Owners of other Nissan and related vehicles such as the Tiida, Latio, Leaf, Cube, Note, Micra, Wingroad, Almera, Sunny, Pulsar, Dodge Trazo, Sentra, Altima, Maxima, Rogue, Murano, Xterra, Pathfinder, Armada, Quest, Frontier, and Titan may also find these DIY instructions to be helpful.

A replacement coin (AKA "button" or "watch") battery for the Versa's key fob is part # CR2025 3V from various manufacturers such as Panasonic, GE, Energizer, Sony, Duracell and Kodak.

The only tool needed to replace the battery is a flathead screwdriver, butter knife, or coin used to pry open the key fob.

The first step is to locate the large notch at the bottom of the key fob where the key ring is attached.

Insert the blade of a flathead screwdriver, butter knife, or a large coin such as a quarter into the notch and gently pry apart the two halves of the key fob.

Pry out the old CR2025 battery from the bottom half of the key fob with your finger nail or a small flathead screwdriver.

New CR2025 Installed


Push in a new CR2025 3 volt battery into the battery holder with the "+" positive side facing down.

Test New Key Fob Battery

Line up the two halves of the key fob and gently push them together until they snap in place. Make sure the two halves are flush together all the way around.

To test the new key fob battery, stand near your Versa and press the "Lock" or "Unlock" buttons. The parking lights should flash and you'll hear the door locks clicking.
