How do you replace a Honda Accord key battery?

My friend just sold me their car, but the key fob battery is already dying. What’s the best way to replace a Honda Accord key battery?

Buying a used car is a great way to save money, and it can sometimes be helpful to know the previous owner. Key fob batteries usually last from three to four years, so it isn’t surprising that you need to change it.
Follow these steps to replace a Honda Accord key battery:
  • Start by pushing and sliding the button above the Honda logo to release the metal key.
  • Pull out the metal key and stick it in the area where both halves of the fob meet.
  • Gently twist the key to pry apart the key fob.
  • Use a flathead screwdriver to carefully remove the old battery.
  • Insert your new battery in the battery slot. Use the + and – markers to guide you.
  • Snap both sides of the key fob back together, and reinsert your metal key.
  • Test out the key fob!
Hopefully, these steps will help you replace your Honda Accord’s key battery. Luckily, the process is relatively simple, so it should only take one or two minutes.
