Chrysler Town & Country: I cannot get the battery out of

Customer Question

I cannot get the battery out of the remote key fob for my 2008 Chrysler Town & Country. I've tried using a flat-head screw driver, a magnet, tape, and finally a thin tweezer to no avail. Help!

I just don't see a notch near the key ring, Danny. I had read a similar answer on "just answer Chrysler" a few minutes ago. I'm trying to see what you are telling me. So the RKE fob is about 1.5" wide at the largest end, .5" wide on the "PANIC" button end, and 1/4" wide if I am looking at it from the side. I'm thinking you are saying I should see a notch on the 1/4" part of the fob. Is this correct?

I asked my husband to try this, too. He said, "Nope; I'm not breaking the plastic." I'm just going to take it next week to the place where I first bought a second RKE. Thanks anyway...

I still cannot replace the battery.

Hello and welcome to just answer. I know that those batteries are very difficult to remove. A very poor design. I believe that using a pair of needle nose pliers seemed to work best for me. Use a medium to small pair of needle nose pliers, and grab the edge of the battery and pull quickly. Good luck,
