Honda Key Fob Battery Replacement

Key with key fob in hand

The Honda key fob was built with convenience and efficiency in mind, allowing you quick access to your vehicle just by the push of a button. Although, just like anything else, batteries don’t last forever. We know battery failure rarely happens at the most convenient time while you’re out and about in Cumming, so that’s why we’ve put together this comprehensive guide to teach you how to change your Honda key battery no matter what situation you are in.



How to Change the Key Fob Battery

The Honda key fob most commonly uses a flat circular 3-volt battery. Make sure to have a compatible replacement ready before starting the replacement process. Then, follow the steps below:

  • Locate the button to release the metal key inside the fob. Slide that button open and pull the key out. 
  • Carefully place the edge of the key into the slot at the top of the key fob. Wedge the key and lightly twist, the back of the key fob should pop off.
  • Hold your thumb right above where the battery is located. Once you have your key fob open, you want to take precautions to ensure that the entire fob does not fall apart. If you attempt to simply pull the battery out, you may pop out essential components.
  • Using your other hand, carefully pry the dead battery out and replace it with a fresh one.
  • Line the back of the key fob up with the front half and gently press the pieces back together. Once secured, you will hear a snap.

Having completed the replacement process, your Honda key fob should be back to normal and working just like new. So now you can cruise with confidence in your travels around Flowery Branch and Buford.
