Amazon, less than 5 bucks for 5 batteries, or 10 for about 6 bucks.

yup. one of mine finally stopped working at all today and the CR1632s had come in a couple weeks ago so i replaced both. (no Radio Shack or Fry's Electronics nearby? - order them on Amazon, its the same price...)

this video shows how to get the little key fob apart without breaking it for the type we have for the Rav4EV.

No need to visit a dealer to do this, the batteries cost about $1.50 each.
