    Hi I am new to the site, my name is Charlotte
    I was shopping yesterday and unloaded my car no issues, shut the trunk and came in the house. Forgot my coat in the car and went out to get it, my remote did not work, neither for doors or the trunk just nothing. So found the key and used that, thats' a strange thing after using the remote. The car is a 96 Buick Regal and the remote has 2 side by side 3 v 2016 batteries. Can I use a 2025 x2 just till I can get to a battery store to replace the 2016's. They are not stacked so I can't use one 2032 in their place. I tried the inside door locks today and they are dead as well. The inside Trunk release does work however.

    Thank you any help will be appreciated. I need to go out in the morning and am afraid of losing a key and then I will really be in a fix.

    Hello Charlotte,

    All three, 2016, 2025 and 2032 are 3V batteries but I don't see how you're going to fit a 2025 or 2032 into a 2016 battery holder. I don't see that the fact that they're not stacked as being relevant. You have 2 side by side, which indicates they're wired in series = 6V.

    thank you, I have not tried them but they all look about the same size as what fits my PC's for the clock etc. Does the two batteries mean its running 6 V? Thanks again.

    My apologies. All three are 3V with identical diameters but different thicknesses and current capacities. Yes, since your remote uses 2 the operating voltage will be 2 x 3V = 6V.

    If the extra thickness of the 2025 or 2032 still allows either to fit in there then you should be good to go.

    Here's a chart for comparison.

    Operation of the inside door locks does not depend on the remote. If they don't work, then maybe your remote is ok and there is something wrong inside the car.
