    yep, thats what you need, just remember to swap the old battery for the new one in under 30 seconds or the key will need programming at VX again..so get the packet open before fiddling with the key and work quickly and try not to break the little white plastic tags on the battery mount

    I think- when you have changed the battery you then have to put it in the ignition,switch it on and press the open button twice to make it work.

    Someone far more technical than me should confirm this just remember needing to do something when I changed my battery!!
