.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!
As I said, you got lucky.
And I'm happy for you, but advocating that people try using the CR2032 is overall BAD advice.
I tried it in mine because someone else in another fob battery thread said it would work and the Dollar Tree only had the CR2032, and the thickness was too much, and only one of the buttons would work at all, the rest would not work at all.
I was lucky that it did not damage my fob. Some others have not been that lucky, and the fob did not work as well after they tried it.
You should be ashamed of yourself for continuing to propagate the bad advice on MNL of trying the CR2032 in the fob.
Also, the fob battery should be changed as soon as you notice the low fob battery warning. As I posted in another fob battery thread (viewtopic.php?f=30&t=11471#p264737
), I waited a long time on changing the battery in a 2009 Altima fob, and that fob is still barely functional even if you put a brand new battery in it every two months.
Change the LEAF fob battery as soon as you get the warning, and use the correct CR2025 fob battery
Replacement fobs are just too expensive to take chances with it.
