Acura Keyless Fob Remote Battery

Before you get started in Ascension, you’ll need to grab an Acura key fob battery replacement from our parts department. Most Acura key fobs will use a CR2032 button cell battery, but ask our team if you’re unsure. Afterward, follow these instructions on how to change your battery in an Acura key fob:

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

Acura Smart Key Battery

For those who have an Acura Smart Key instead of an Acura Keyless Fob Remote, learning how to open the Acura key fob and replace the battery is very similar. You will still need a CR2032 button cell battery, but the design of the fob is slightly different. Follow these instructions to complete it properly:

  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.
