My car key fob has been acting strangely for the last week or so, I think the battery needs to be replaced. How do I change the car key battery in a Honda Accord?

Answer
Since many people use their car key fob almost every day, it makes sense that eventually it will need a new battery.
Luckily, changing the battery in a Honda Accord key fob is very simple, just follow these steps:
  1. Check your owner’s manual to find out what type of battery the key needs, and purchase it from your local auto or retail store.
  2. Release the metal key by pressing and sliding the button on the side of the key fob.
  3. With a flat screwdriver, pry the key fob open.
  4. Remove the old battery and put the new one in its place. Take care to place the battery with the proper terminals facing the right direction.
  5. Press the key fob back together gently.
Your car key should now work properly; if it is not, you may need a replacement. These can be pretty pricey, but you can find some extra cash to pay for it with the Jerry app.
