KeyFob battery replacement

I'm looking for info on KeyFob battery replacement. I have the unit apart and old battery out, the dealership mentioned possible reprogramming. However they want me to bring the car in for a $60.00 lick off my icecream cone. Will it require reprogramming? Is this doable without dealer equipment? If so how?

ya at least your dealership is only like 60 ours here is 115 you dont even want to know how I found that one out. Lets just say it involved a cold day, a locked car in the middle of a parking lot, a tow truck and a new key bill to the tune of 300 bucks last week!!!!!!

But I am not usre on a DIY programming for the key I would not think that changing the battery would make you have to do that either I know you said you got it apart but for everyone that does not know how to here is a picture by picture site for it.
