The battery chamber is on the underside of the camera next to the tripod mounting hole. Use a coin to unscrew it. The battery chamber holds two silver oxide SR44's; these are very commonly available still and relatively cheap, but you need to make sure that they are silver oxide SR44's and not lithium LR44's. LR44's are precisely the same shape and size, but have the wrong (lower and inconsistent) voltage. They won't damage your camera in the least but will cause inaccurate light meter readings.

I am locked out of garage. Liftmaster 1265 will not open.

Sounds like what you need acces too is inside the garage. If you don't have a pedestrian access door to your garage, or a window, or these are both locked, you are going to have to break something. Sorry to tell you that. Just pick the thing to break which is easiest to repair. Once inside, there is a mechanical release (usually a pull rope hanging from the opener main unit) that allows you to open the door manually. Then you can use the garage until you can address the problem. Good luck.

Yaris hatchback wont open

The remote may have a bad battery or the system has lost programming, refer to the owner's manual to change the battery in the remote and if that doesn't cure it the dealer must use a special tool to reprogram the system to the remote frequency. This solution is based on the fact that both the remotes don't work, the remote can be bad, this is esp true if it has been dropped.

Red sercurity light flashes in my truck

You could try re locking the doors then unlock them. Then open the hood and disconnect the negative terminal on the battery for 2 minutes. Hook up the battery and start the truck. This will flush the PCM's cache and restore everything to its normal state.
