How to Open Honda Key Fob & Replace the Battery

Key with key fob in hand

While the convenient functions of the Honda key fob are designed to make your life a little easier, the Honda key battery will wear out over time and have to be replaced. When it comes time to change the battery in your Honda key fob, you can always stop by the Parts Center at Metro Honda and have one of our reps replace it for you. However, it is relatively simple to change the Honda key fob battery on your own. This guide from our parts experts will walk you through the Honda key fob battery replacement process.


Choosing the Right Honda Key Fob Battery

Your new Honda car, truck, or SUV comes with a key fob that uses a flat, circular 3-volt battery, which can be found at most hardware stores in the Hoboken area. You can also pick up a Honda key battery replacement at the Metro Honda Parts Center in Jersey City.

Honda Key Battery Replacement

Follow these steps to change the battery in a Honda key fob:

  1. Press and slide the button that releases the metal key, and then slide the key out.
  2. Use the key or a small flathead screwdriver to gently pry the key fob open.
  3. Press your thumb down right above the battery to hold the fob together so the contents and external buttons don’t fall out.
  4. Remove the battery while taking note of the positive and negative sides in order to install the new battery correctly. Don’t touch the terminals on the new battery, as the oils on your skin can cause corrosion, which shortens battery life.
  5. Insert the new battery in the same position as the old one. Use the positive (+) and negative (-) marks inside the key fob as a guide.
  6. Align the two halves of the key fob and gently apply pressure until they snap back together.

If your Honda key fob has a screw that holds the two halves together instead of a button, use a small flathead screwdriver to remove the screw, and then follow the steps above to replace the battery.


How to Program the Honda Key

Now that you know how to change a Honda key battery, reprogramming it is easy. The following steps show how to program a Honda key:

  1. Enter the vehicle, make sure all the doors are shut, and have your key and the fobs to be programmed ready.
  2. Insert the key and turn to the “On” position. Then, press and hold the “LOCK” button on the Honda key fob for one second.
  3. Release the button and turn the key to the “Off” position. Repeat this process twice more.
  4. Turn the key to the “On” position and hold the “LOCK” button on the key fob for one second. Wait for the doors to lock and unlock automatically. Once the locks have cycled, your vehicle will be in remote programming mode.
  5. Once again hold the “LOCK” button on the key fob for one second. After the locks cycle, the key fob will be paired with your vehicle. Repeat the process with any additional fobs that need programming.
  6. Exit remote programming mode by turning the key to the “Off” position in the ignition.
