So the difference is 0,7mm. Metric system is that easy :)

It depends on the battery tolerance.

A made in China Sunbeam brand 2032 from Dollar Tree did NOT work in my 2011 fob.

I'll try Advance Auto 2025 at two for $4.

My current one is Harbor Freight 2025.

They are cheap but don't last very long.

CR2025 = Diameter: 20 mm. Thickness: 2.5 mm. Capacity: 160 mAh,
CR2032 = Diameter: 20 mm. Thickness: 3.2 mm. Capacity: 220 mAh

.7mm(a little less than 1/32 inch) difference in thickness and 60 more mAh, 38% more capacity to be correct. I'll take the chance!][/quote]

The above is from 3 years ago...Bought a card of 10 each CR2032 cells for $15 total three years ago; used one in my fob; here we are three years later and I just replace it again and I have 4 left; used the other five for other products and gave a few away. the CR2032 is a popular size that is used in remotes, backups in control devices, etc. A good quality cell has a self life of about 10 years and the CR2032 has worked fine and still is working fine in my FOB
