Debbie, to remove the old battery, unscrew the push button cap on the ignitor and you will see the battery inside the holder. Take note of which way the old battery is facing before removing it. As that's the direction you want to install the new battery. Once you remove the old battery, check the holder for any corrosion on the battery contacts. If you see any, cleaning it off using a Q-Tip and some WD40 will do the job.
But before you order one, check the battery holder for corrosion and clean it with WD40 and a Q Tip. Also, make sure you installed the new batter properly. The Positive (+) end should be facing you, when you insert it into the holder. Check all the spark ignitors at each burner to make sure they are clean and grease free. Alcohol and a cotton ball works well to clean them.
Since your model Weber grill has crossover electronic ignition. I have to ask, have you changed the battery in the ignitor button/module? If so, is the battery facing the right direction? If the answer is YES to both of these questions, then the electrodes at the burners may be covered with grease and won't spark or the wiring to the electrodes may be loose and it has lost the ground. A cotton ball dipped in alcohol works well to clean the grease from the electrodes. Tracing the wiring will give you an indication on whether the connections are loose.
I suspect that the corrosion you found has taken it's toll. You will need to replace the the ignitor box. if it's still under warranty, Weber may cover it. Either way, you can get the part from Weber on line. Make sure you have your Model #, Serial # of the Grill and the date and proof of purchase.
