Toyota Key Fob Battery Replacement

If you live around Columbia and your Toyota key fob suddenly stops working, it probably just needs a Toyota key fob battery replacement. Open the little black case to locate the battery. This is how to open a Toyota Key fob battery case:

  • Newer models have a hidden key that you pull out and insert into the slot that’s meant to open the case.
  • Older models require a thin object to use to pry open the notch on the case.

Once you have opened the Toyota key fob, this is how to replace the Toyota key fob battery:

  1. Carefully lift the circuit board so you can see the battery.
  2. Jot down what kind of battery is used and how it’s placed in the case, or better yet, take a picture of it on your smartphone. Most Toyota models use a CR2032 battery, which is easy to find online. They cost less than $5.
  3. Place your Toyota key fob battery replacement inside of your case and close it.
  4. Test to make sure it works. If it doesn’t work, open the case again to readjust the battery, making sure that the connections are clean and making contact with the battery. If it’s still not working, you probably need a Toyota key fob replacement.
