Changing the Cadillac Key Fob Battery in Models 2014 and Newer

While the Cadillac key fob was updated with the 2020 CT5, they’re actually similar to the key fob models introduced in 2014. Here are the steps for how to change the battery in a Cadillac key fob:

  1. On the side of your Cadillac key fob, there should be a small release button. Press that button to open the case and reveal the metal key.
  2. You should then notice a small indentation where the key was resting. Use a flat head screwdriver to separate the sides of the case.
  3. On one side you see the circuit board and the Cadillac key fob battery, on the other.
  4. The common key fob battery is a CR2032 battery. Pop-out the dead battery and carefully place the new battery in its place.
  5. Make sure that the positive side is facing down when inserting the new battery.
  6. Your Cadillac key fob battery replacement is as simple as that. Complete the process by popping the case back together, and you can make the most of the popular features of your Cadillac key fob again.

The CR2032 battery in the Cadillac key fob can be found where batteries are sold, or easily pick it up at our Rohrich Cadillac parts center during your next visit.
