Acura Keyless Remote Battery

Before you get started in Ascension, you’ll need to grab an Acura key fob battery replacement from the parts department. Most Acura key fobs use a CR2032 button cell battery, but be sure to ask our team for extra help. Next, follow the instructions for how to change battery in an Acura key fob:

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

Acura Smart Key Battery

If you have an Acura Smart Key instead of an Acura Keyless Remote, learning how to open the Acura key fob and replace the battery is fairly similar. You’ll still need a CR2032 button cell battery, but the design of the fob is just a little bit different.

  1. Press the “Tab” button to remove the metal key blade.
  2. Use this key to open the fob through the opening where you retrieved it.
  3. Use a small screwdriver to remove the old battery.
  4. Insert the new battery, and make sure the positive (+) side is facing up.
  5. Press the key fob halves together until you hear two clicking sounds.
  6. Replace the metal key blade.
