How to Replace an Acura Keyless Remote Battery

As mentioned previously, steps to replace your Acura key battery will differ depending on which type of key fob you have. However, most Acura key fobs use the same CR2032 button cell battery. If you have an Acura keyless remote, here are instructions for replacing your battery:

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

How to Replace an Acura Smart Key Battery

Similar to the keyless remote, replacing the battery in your Acura Smart Key is just as easy. Check out the steps, below:

  1. Press ‘Tab’ and remove the metal key blade
  2. Use the metal key to open the fob through the opening where the key fob came from
  3. Take a small screwdriver and pop out the old battery
  4. Insert the new battery with the positive (+) side facing up
  5. Press the key fob back together. You’ll know it’s closed when you hear two clicks
  6. Put the metal key back in its slot
  7. Snap the two halves of the Acura key fob back together
