How to Change the Battery in a Honda Key Fob

  • If your fob is held together by a screw, remove the screw with a screwdriver. If it has a button that releases the key, click that button instead.
  • Pry the key fob open, being careful not to let the contents and external buttons fall out.
  • Take out the dead battery. Observe which side is positive and which side is negative.
  • Install the new Honda key battery without touching the terminals. Remember where the positive side and negative side goes
  • Snap the two halves of the fob back together or screw them back together, depending on which kind of Honda key fob you have.
