How do you change the battery in your Honda key fob?

My key fob is being inconsistent. My sister says it’s probably because the battery’s dying. What’s the easiest way to change the battery in my Honda key fob?

Answer
Changing the battery in your key fob every few years is a minor but helpful aspect of car maintenance. You can follow these steps to change the battery in your Honda key fob:
  • Step 1: Release the metal key in your fob by pressing and sliding the button above the Honda logo.
  • Step 2: Pry the fob open by sticking the key back into its slot and gently twisting it sideways.
  • Step 3: Carefully pull apart the two halves, holding your thumb just above the battery to make sure it all stays together.
  • Step 4: Pull out the old battery by gently lifting it out of its slot with a flathead screwdriver or the metal key.
  • Step 5: Put in your new battery, using the + and - symbols to guide you.
  • Step 6: Test your key fob to make sure it’s back in working order!
Key fob batteries only last an average of 3-4 years, so waiting too long can leave you stuck with a metal key. Hopefully, these steps can help you change the battery in your Honda key fob. If you’re still having issues, you can buy a new battery from a local dealer and ask them to change it for you.
