How to Replace Battery

  1. Disarm your Cove system before you begin this process
  2. Remove the screw on the back of the remote
  3. Open the cover
  4. Pay close attention to the orientation of the (+) of the battery in the remote
  5. Remove the old battery by sliding it out of the battery clip

To ensure that your Key Remote is functioning properly, run a Complete Sensor Signal Test.
