Autowatch remote batteries

How to change the batteries in your Autowatch peanut remote

The Autowatch 225000 (AKA peanut remote) takes 2 CR1220 coin-type batteries. These last for about 3 years with normal use.

The back of the case will have either N4086, 225-000, or 446-300 etched into it. Replacement cases are available through me.

To change the batteries you’ll need a small Philips screwdriver.

Autowatch remote service

Remove the two screws that hold the case together, then turn the remote so the button faces upwards before opening.

Make a note of which way the batteries are installed and replace them (if you muddle this bit up then use the following photo as a reference):

Replace the screws and test the remote. If the LED lights up you have the batteries in the correct way. Test on the alarm.

Please recycle your old remote batteries

Need a new Autowatch Remote?

Most Autowatch alarms can learn up to 8 remote controls. If you require a new remote control then you’ll need your alarm 5-digit security number to be able to access programming.

The case includes a key-ring and button pad. (not the tact switch which is part of the circuit board)

The case does not include the switch on the circuit board!

    Hi we need a case only for single button peanut remote auto watch type.
    The button does not work anymore but remote does work when cross terminals with tin foil. I’m sure will work properly with new case. Has number N4085 on back.

    Hi Louis,

    No problem, I can supply you with a new case but from what you have said it sounds like the switch is at fault given that you have to bridge it with tin foil.

    Please use the contact form rather then publishing your details:

    Does the case come with the actual button? I bought a car with an alarm that uses this remote and the button is missing and the terminals need to be bridged with a piece of metal..

    Hi Kyle,

    No the case is just a case which includes the button and screws, but does not come with the internal tack switch on the circuit board.
