Default key fob battery change

Hi,

As I only received one key fob when I bought the car, I would like to order one or two batteries in spare to play it safe.

Does someone know the exact model I should order ?

Thanks in advance !

bought a new battery for the Key-fob at the local Porsche dealership, it was very expensive for this tiny battery, it you find a better source let people know!

I bought one at Radio Shack for about $2. Take the fob with you and they will find the correct battery.

Is there anything in particular you need to think about when you change battery? I opened my keyfob with the small philips screwdriver and the whole electric board came out.. Is it supposed to be lose like that? then I replace the battery but no juice.. The small diode doesn't light up when pushing the button either..

IIRC, the board just sits in there. Just make sure you have the polarity right and that the new battery is good. reminds me, I should change mine

good luck

Right, A23. Just picked up a couple last night myself ($1.99) and stashed them in the glove box.
