While no New Haven driver loves discovering a dead battery, whether it’s under the hood or in their pocket, an Acura key fob battery is one of the easier things to replace. For many, the hardest part is figuring out how to open an Acura key fob to reach the battery, so they can access the full convenience designed in their new Acura.

Fortunately, with just a couple of simple steps you can access the battery and replace it in no time! Learn how to replace an Acura key fob battery with the Acura of Milford experts below, as we detail specifically how to open the Acura key fob with minimal effort, depending on the key fob your model uses.

How to Replace an Acura Key Fob Battery: Keyless Remote

Depending on the key fob your Acura uses, the steps may differ slightly. In most cases, the Acura key fob battery is the same: a CR2032 Button Cell. Consult your owner’s manual or talk to your local service center or parts technicians outside of Fairfield for exact specifications if need be. For the Acura Keyless Remote, learning how to open an Acura key fob is a little simpler, so that’s where we start:

  1. Remove the metal blade key
  2. Use a flat-head screwdriver to gently pry open the fob
  3. Remove the two batteries
  4. Insert the new batteries
  5. Snapback together with the two halves of the Abura key fob

How to Replace an Acura Key Fob Battery: Smart Key

Like the Acura Keyless Remote, the Acura Smart Key is designed with your convenience in mind, so you can get back on to your Bridgeport destination in no time. See below for the step-by-step instructions on how to open the Acura key fob and replace your battery in a matter of moments:

  1. Press tab, remove the metal key
  2. Use the metal key to pry open the fob via the opening the metal key came from
  3. Pop-out the old battery with a small screwdriver
  4. Insert the new battery with the positive (+) side facing out
  5. Press the key fob back together until you hear two clicks
  6. Return the metal key back into its slot
  7. Snapback together the two halves of the Abura key fob
