How to Open a Cadillac Key Fob

Cadillac key fobs actually only became an available feature with the introduction of the 2014 CT5. However, the process for conducting a Cadillac key fob replacement has remained mostly the same since then:

  1. Locate Release Button: There should be a tiny release button located on the side of the key fob case. You just have to press the button and the case will open, revealing the metal key.
  2. Use Screwdriver to Access the Opening: When you remove the key, you should see a little opening. Use a flat head screwdriver to separate the side of the case.
  3. Locate Circuit Board and Battery: Inside the key fob you’ll see the circuit board on one side, and the battery on the other.
  4. Remove Old Battery and Insert Replacement: Remove the old battery and carefully pop in the replacement battery. You may have to use the screwdriver to pop the old battery out.
  5. Ensure that the Positive Side is Down: Similar to many manufacturers, the Cadillac key fob battery replacement requires a CR2032 battery. When placing the new battery in the fob, make sure the positive side is facing down.
  6. Click Case Back into Place: Once you’ve installed the new battery, just pop the case back together, and you’re ready to take advantage of the popular features of your Cadillac key fob.

If you’re looking for a Cadillac key fob battery replacement, the CR 2032 is the ideal choice. Having trouble finding this component? You can always order a new one online from the Parts Center at Covert Cadillac.
