How to Open a Honda Key Fob and Replace the Battery

The Phil Hughes Honda service team is here to help out with your DIY car projects. Reach out to us for more info about replacing parts like your Honda key fob battery. First, make sure you have the following supplies on hand:

  • Small (Jeweler’s) Screwdriver
  • Flathead Screwdriver

Now follow these steps to open your Honda key fob:

  1. Most Honda key fobs have a small screw. Remove it with the jeweler’s screwdriver.
  2. Next, use the flathead screwdriver to gently pry apart the two halves of the key fob. Hold the fob together as you do so, to prevent the internal contents and external buttons from falling loose.
  3. Find the battery and take note of the positive and negative orientation. Being careful not to touch the battery terminals, remove it carefully. Oils from your skin can cause corrosion, shortening the life of the battery.
  4. Insert the new battery, using the positive (+) and negative (-) marks as a guide.
  5. Realign the battery halves and gently apply pressure until they snap together.
  6. Replace the small screw.

Choosing the Right Honda Key Fob Battery

Before you order a replacement Honda key fob battery, be sure you know exactly which kind you need. Check the back of the key fob for the battery type. Sometimes, the number will be illegible — but you can also check the battery itself for a size and voltage label.

Most key fobs use a 3-volt circular battery, which you can typically purchase or order from a Jefferson and Greensboro hardware stores. To be sure you’re getting the right Honda key fob battery, you can order from our parts center and double-check with one of our technicians.
