I think that the battery for my car's remote is fairly dead and needs to be replaced. Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to remove the battery door on the remote. It has a little slot in it so I tried turning it with a screwdriver, and there is a little arrow so I tried prying it off at that point. Neither of these successfully removed the door.

How is the battery door intended to come off so that the battery can be replaced?

Hi Foxpaw,

The small battery door at the back of the remote should twist off, counterclockwise, using a good-size coin such as a quarter.

I replaced the remote batteries about 6 months ago and used Energizer CR2025. They seem to be working fine. The extremely tiny red light above the "lock" symbol only flashes when I'm activating a button on the remote, which I assume is normal.

Hope this is "remotely" helpful. :D

By my read your dead on target :!: :lol:

The little red light is there to help verify that the batteries aren't dead and that the switch(s) are working. Sometimes a switch gets sticky and rapidly drains the smallish battery.

HTH! :)
