How to Change Battery in Honda Key Fob

Wondering how to open the Honda key fob? The process to open and replace your Honda key fob battery is pretty simple. Just follow the instructions below:

  1. Find and slide the button to release the metal key, and then slide the key out.
  2. Using the key or a flathead screwdriver, separate the halves of the key fob.
  3. Press down right above the battery to keep the halves close and ensure the contents and the external buttons don’t get lost.
  4. Remove the old Honda key battery and remember where the positive and negative sides are so the new battery can be replaced the same way (Note: The oils on your skin can cause corrosion and will shorten the battery life. Take care to not touch the terminals on the new battery).
  5. Using the positive (+) and negative (-) marks inside the key fob, insert the new Honda key battery.
  6. Realign the halves of the key fob and carefully apply pressure until they click back together.

Note: If the key fob is held together by a screw, simply use a small flathead screwdriver to remove the screw and follow the remaining steps above.

How to Reassemble If Honda Key Fob Falls Apart

If the contents of the key fob fall out, don’t worry, they can be replaced. If the spare key is available, use that as a guide for how the pieces should fit. Follow these steps:

  1. Ensure that the buttons are in the correct position.
  2. Between the top two buttons, place the crossbar in the empty space with the curved side facing outwards.
  3. Insert the battery in its place on the motherboard, taking care to align the positive and negative sides correctly.
  4. Place the motherboard with the rubber film against the buttons.
  5. Line the halves of the key fob up and carefully apply pressure until they click in place.
  6. Test if it was compiled correctly by standing next to the vehicle and pressing each of the buttons to ensure they respond.
