GMC Acadia Key Fob Battery Replacement (2007 – 2017)


In this guide, I’ll walk you through the steps to replace the battery in your GMC Acadia key fob. Whether you have the three-button version or the version without the center button, the process is the same. Follow these steps, and you’ll have a new battery in your key fob in under five minutes.

The only tools you’ll need are a CR2032 battery and a regular flathead screwdriver. If you don’t have a CR2032 battery, you can find one on Amazon by following the link in the video description.

Step-by-Step Battery Replacement

1. Locate the Seam

The first step is to find the small opening along the seam of the two halves of the key fob. This opening is located where the key ring attaches. It is very small but just enough space to fit a flathead screwdriver into.

2. Insert the Screwdriver

Once you’ve found the opening, insert your flathead screwdriver. Gently turn the screwdriver until the key fob starts to open. Once it is cracked open, you can use your fingers to pull it apart completely.

3. Remove the Circuit Board

With the key fob open, set down the back piece of plastic. Lift out the circuit board by grabbing onto the battery itself and gently lifting it up. This will make it easier to slide the old battery out of place.

4. Replace the Battery

Slide the old battery out and dispose of it. Make sure your new battery is a CR2032. When inserting the new battery, the positive side with the plus sign should face up. Slide the new battery into place.

5. Reassemble the Key Fob

Grab the circuit board and the front piece of the key fob that has the rubber inside. Drop the circuit board into the front piece, ensuring the battery is facing up. Push down on the battery to make sure it is sitting flat.

Next, take the back section of plastic and place it on top, making sure it is lined up correctly. Squeeze the two halves together until they snap back into place.


Congratulations! You’ve successfully replaced the battery in your GMC Acadia key fob. This new battery should last for a long time, ensuring your key fob remains functional.
