Acura Key Fob  

All batteries die after some time has gone by, regardless of how well they are made. The average life expectancy of an Acura key fob battery is about three years, so you should be ready to replace this battery during the ownership of your car. If you’ve never taken care of this task before, we have some steps that make it easy to get it done quickly so you can get to where you need to go.

The kind of Acura fob that you have may alter these directions slightly, but the general premise is usually the same. You can refer to your owner’s manual if you have any further questions. Some of the older models that are still being driven may require a few different steps.

  • There is a tab located somewhere on your key fob that will reveal a physical key inside of your fob. You’ll want to press the tab and remove the key.
  • Use the metal key to open up the compartment on your key fob that houses the battery. Try using a paper clip or a small screwdriver if you find that your metal key is too large for this process.
  • The old battery should be removed from the fob and discarded.
  • Install your new battery into the fob, placing the positive side of the battery facing the outside of the fob.
  • The compartment for the battery door should be replaced on the fob. Wait to hear a click, which indicates that the door has been properly closed.
  • Your metal key can be replaced into the key fob. A click should indicate it has locked in.

The process of changing your battery in your Acura fob is quite simple, but you can always reach out to Acura of Peoria if you’re having difficulty. You can also schedule an appointment with our service department to have us perform any routine maintenance or service that your vehicle requires at this point in time.
