Replacing battery in 2004 Passat remote

\015 I got the two halves of the key remote apart but how do I get the part with the battery inside apart so I can replace the battery?\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Answers :

I actually found the instructions for how to take the remote apart, along with illustrations, in my husband's VW Jetta, Golf, GTI Service Manual that he had purchased from an auto parts store a while back (it's those thick red books that tell you how to fix anything and everything). After I got the two halves of the remote apart, I just needed to know where I was pulling the piece with the battery apart. Once I did that, the battery was right inside. The dealer offered to replace the battery for free but the battery costs $8.75. I found a place in Miami that sold FIVE of the batteries for $6.98. Since I was a returnng customer, I got a 10% discount. Problem fixed for $1.25. ;)

I have a Saturn SL2 (197) that won't start. It just clicks when I turn the key. Also about 6 weeks ago I had a similar problem. The starter tested fine but the battery needed to be replaced. Additionally my remote works less and less even with a new battery in it. The remote worked fine once the battery was replaced but then has slowly started having problems again. Is this more likely a starter problem a short somewhere in the electrical system or something else?

Imobiliser problem I own a 94' Mk3 Golf TDI, which has been stood for few months and battery has now gone flat. After charging the battery, I've found that the Remote Central Locking will not open the car, or turn off the Immobiliser or alarm. Central locking works with Key, but the engine will not start because the immobiliser is de-activated only with the Key Fob. I've replaced the batteris in the Key Fob / remote, and it appears to work, but the car just will not register anything from Fob...
