Replacing The Battery In Your Remote
Replace Your Battery

Directed recommends you refer to your owners guide for specific instructions regarding your remotes battery and replacement.

Older Model Remotes
In older remotes you will need to locate a small, single screw on the back of the remote (these are usually black, 2-button remotes). Remove that screw and the case will separate in the middle exposing the circuit board/battery. These batteries are usually 12 volts, and are smaller than a AAA battery. Simply match the model number of the battery at your local drug store and replace.

New Model Remotes
On newer remotes there is no screw, there is a small notch in the seam of the two halves of the remote, usually towards the bottom of the remote. Take a flat blade screwdriver and gently pry the two halves apart using this notch. This will expose the circuit board and the battery. The battery on newer remotes is usually a CR2016, CR2032, etc, these batteries are about the size of a nickel and you will want to replace the battery once every 12 months to ensure proper and reliable operation. Some models such as the HD have a rechargeable battery that does not need to be replaced under normal use.
