Ford Five Hundred Key Fob Battery Remote Replacement 2005 – 2008

Though it had only a few year lifespan, the Ford Five hundred was something I remember from my childhood coming out. It felt refined, you know? It only had two key fobs in it’s lifetime and both used the common CR2032 key battery.

The short lived model only had one remote with lock / unlock features. This one can be changed very quickly. The internal CR2032 battery is very common. Here’s my video to show how to replace it:
