by Admin 2023-11-07

Garage door opener remotes have become a staple in modern homes, providing convenient access to your garage without the need to leave your car. These handy devices are powered by batteries, which, like any other, need replacing over time. If you're wondering how to replace the battery in your garage door opener remote, you're in the right place. In this article, we'll guide you through the simple steps to keep your remote working reliably.

How do I replace the battery in a garage door opener remote?

What You'll Need:

Before you begin, gather the following items:

1. New battery: Check your remote's user manual or the old battery to determine the correct type and size (commonly, a small coin or button cell battery, such as a CR2032).

2. Small screwdriver: Depending on your remote's design, you might need a Phillips or flat-head screwdriver to open the battery compartment.

Step-by-Step Guide to Replacing the Battery:

1. Identify the Battery Compartment: Turn the garage door opener remote over and examine the back. You should see a battery compartment cover. In some remotes, this cover is secured with screws, while in others, it might have a simple sliding or locking mechanism.

2. Remove the Cover: If your remote has screws, use the appropriate screwdriver to carefully remove them. Set the screws aside for reassembly later. For remotes with a sliding cover, gently slide or pop it open using your fingernail or a small flat tool.

3. Take Out the Old Battery: Once the cover is removed, you'll see the old battery inside. Carefully lift it out of its compartment, taking note of its orientation (positive and negative terminals).

4. Dispose of the Old Battery: Be sure to dispose of the old battery responsibly. Many communities have recycling programs for batteries. Do not throw it in the regular trash.

5. Insert the New Battery: Place the new battery into the compartment with the same orientation as the old one. Ensure that the positive and negative sides match the markings inside the remote.

6. Close the Battery Compartment: If your remote had screws, reattach them using the screwdriver. If it had a sliding cover, simply slide it back into place or secure it according to the specific design of your remote.

7. Test Your Remote: After replacing the battery and securing the battery compartment, test your garage door opener remote by pressing the buttons. It should work just as it did before the battery replacement.

8. Re-Program if Necessary: In some cases, the remote may need to be reprogrammed with your garage door opener. Refer to your garage door opener manual for instructions on how to do this, if needed.


Replacing the battery in your garage door opener remote is a straightforward process that doesn't require any special skills or tools. With the right battery and a few minutes of your time, you can keep your remote functioning reliably, providing the convenience and security you've come to depend on. Regularly checking and replacing the battery will ensure that you're never locked out of your own garage due to a dead remote battery.
