The Lexus GS300 remote uses a Lithium-coin battery, as do most other automotive keyless-entry remotes. The GS300's remote is integrated with the key, but it does not impede the battery replacement procedure. Replacing the Lexus GS300's keyless-entry battery is a five minute job as long as you have the correct tools. The replacement battery costs less than £3 at most online retailers, including Amazon.com and Battery Mart. You should also be able to pick up a new battery at an electronics store.
